I was going to write this after reading Injustice, then decided not to. But having read the comments on the I miss the old Harley! thread, I must speak my mind. I believe my thoughts on N52 Harley's character are known. However, to hear that people are ready to compromise Harley's appearance for her personality? Is that a fair trade? How much do the clothes really make the man (or woman?)
First, let me say I loved Injustice Harley's character. It gives me hope that someone at DC remembers how to write Harley. Unfortunately the artist went all "realistic look" and stained what could have been a masterpiece. I did not like the costume. There was nothing fun, or clownish about it.
I refuse to accept more accurate character, at the expense of costume character. The right costume is important, I mean, what if Joker started parading around in a bio hazard suite? Or the Penguin started wearing a leotard everywhere? Hell, why not make Catwoman a cross dresser while we're at it!
I actually kinda like her N52 costume (if it is her, that is). I think the cape/skirt combo is cute. Though she could stand to show a little less flesh. So what's more important? Looks or personality? That's for you to decide, I want both. Because until Harley has both, she will always be incomplete.
