Harley-Quinn-batman-tas

Few characters in the expansive DC pantheon have had as many designs as Harley Quinn. She was originally created as a throwaway henchman for Batman: The Animated Series, but Paul Dini adored her so much she became a mainstay, eventually working her way into comics and Rocksteady’s Arkham video games. Over the years, she has had costume after costume, ranging from the sleek to the slutty, and we finally have details on her outfit for the very first live-action appearance on the big screen.
