So who exactly is Harley Quinn? The way I know her, and her original origin story goes, is a former psychiatrist working at Arkham Asylum who volunteered to analyze The Joker. She falls in crazy ass love with him, and helps him not only escape but becomes a sort of side-kick/punching bag. Is there nothing more romantic? She becomes BFF's with Poison Ivy, who does her a solid by injecting her with a dose of instant agility, strength, and toxin immunity. What a pal.

I will admit I haven't READ any of the New 52 Harley Quinn content. I think I am, however, now ready to start. From what I can tell from other Harley Quinn lovers is she is still funny (a little more twisted), smarter (she originally sleeps her way through college), and in love (pretty much) with The Joker. Aside from the cop-out chemical transformation and whore of a mess outfit, I'm not hearing much I don't like.
So, I will start reading, and update you on my thoughts as they come. Wish me luck!
