Thus the Birds of Preya weird quartet of anti-heroines who transform into Gotham’s new vigilantes.
Harley Quinn’s story
Harley Quinn’s character first appeared in the universe DC Comics in 1992, when he landed in the animated TV series Batman. Two years later he lands in comics (he is one of the few characters to appear first on video than on paper) The Adventures of Batman; his first real story as a protagonist, however, dates back to 1999, in the comic Batman: Harley Quinn. The character idea is from screenwriter Paul Dini, who introduces Harley Quinn as Joker’s girlfriend; the girl, as beautiful as she is insane, helps Batman’s enemy to escape from the asylum where he is locked up, and then follow him into his criminal world. A curiosity about the name: Harley Quinn is a crippling of Harlequin, the English name of Harlequin; hence also the look extravagant and colorful of anti-heroin. The latter first appeared at the cinema in Suicide Squad, in 2016, played to perfection by Margot Robbie, who brought the character to a success never seen before. And now the role passes into the hands of Lady Gagawho will play his role in the sequel to Joker alongside the protagonist and Oscar winner Joaquin Phoenix.
