1966-Style Harley Quinn to Take on Adam West’s Batman in Comics



EDIT: I guess she’s actually been around a while. But if like me, you weren’t aware…it’s new to you!

Comics Alliance notes that even if it isn’t said out loud, the idea seems to be that she’d be played by a young Goldie Hawn, which seems pretty dead on. And in a change to her backstory that I’m fully behind, her real-life identity is now…Holly Quinn.

How hard was that, guys? It’s not like it’s a better name at concealing the secret than Harleen Quinzel; just less tortured.

Oh, and they’ve also got a very clever new origin for Clayface that actually ties into episodes of the TV show. I hope some of this stuff gets suitably crammed into the proposed animated features.
