the biggest casulties of the New 52 was Harley Quinn. Oh she's still here, but only in a way that really misses the point of the character. So this issue spotlighting her spins off from the events of Forever Evil #1 with Harley leaving that villain meeting held by the Crime Syndicate to go bomb around in Gotham for a while. Literally. Most of this issue however shows her recounting her origin. Only in New 52 Joker is almost incidental to it. She still was a doctor at Arkham, but she assumed the Harley Quinn identity to pose as an inmate to try and reach her super villain patients more. After a fling with the Joker which opened her eyes to how chaos is awesome, or something, she became a real villain. Also we see how she assembled that hideous outfit of hers, and it turns out part of it she stole from a hooker. Makes sense.
So whereas once Harley Quinn was a cautionary tale of the dark rabbit hole that chasing after a degenerate bad boy can lead a girl, now it was the love of her work and not a man that really drove her to this. Fuck, did Anita Sarkeesian write this or something?
I miss when DC didn't suck a bag of dicks, I really do.
