See What Harley Quinn Looked Like On The Set Of ‘Arrow’

Harley Quinn Arrow

If you watched Arrow's Suicide Squad episode two weeks ago, you may have noticed the brief, very silly, silhouetted cameo of a familiar-seeming character in pigtails.

Thanks to actor Michael Rowe, who plays Deadshot on the show, fans can now know what Harley Quinn, as portrayed by actress Cassidy Alexa, looked like out in the light. That's right, folks, they put her in the makeup and everything. Check out Rowe's Instagram snap after the jump.

Ask Chris #173: The Trouble With The Joker’s Girlfriend Harley Quinn

Ask Chris art by Erica Henderson

Q: What do you think about Harley Quinn? --@Gavin4L

I'll be honest with you, Gavin: Harley Quinn is a tough character to write about. I've been struggling for a long time now trying to figure out how to get started, because there's so much there built around a single character that gets into a lot of tricky, complicated areas, from her almost accidental creation and often mystifying popularity to how much she's changed and been altered in a relatively short period of time, and how you can almost chart the changing aesthetic of the entire company just by looking at a single character. It's a lot to get through, even if you're someone who lived through every bit of it as a fan.

Really, I guess that's as good a starting point as any. What do I think? Well, I like the character a lot, but when you get right down to it, she's one of the most misunderstood and misused characters in all of superhero comics.

The Comics Alliance Halloween Costume Countdown: Harley Quinn

Harley Quinn Costumes

October is finally upon is, and here at ComicsAlliance, and one of the best parts of the month is gearing up for Halloween with costumes! It’s the one time of year when even people like me who could never cut it in our Best Cosplay Ever feature can drop by the local department store and walk out with the ability to dress up as our favorite characters.

But is that really a good thing? I have my doubts, which is why I’m spending every day taking on the store-bought costumes inspired by our favorite things. Today, we're following up on yesterday's look at the joker with a selection of Harley Quinn costumes, which unfortunately have yet to catch up with that whole "naked in a bathtub" thing.

DC Comics And ‘The Normal Course Of Business’ [Opinion]

Art by Alex Ross
Art by Alex Ross

It's a rough time to be a fan of DC's comics. The publisher has made so many problematic moves in the past couple of years that the brand is now as strongly associated with disgruntled talent and unhappy readers as it is with iconic characters like Superman and Batman.

In the wake of the inauspicious departure of the Batwoman creative team of J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman, I intended to write something about DC's editorial troubles. I got as far into the opening paragraph as noting, "I have to write quickly because there'll be another fiasco along any minute," before another fiasco came along - the Harley Quinn try-out controversy.

At this stage, talking about any individual incident at DC as a blip seems too narrow. A good week is now a blip for DC. The company has profound problems, and the question we have to ask is, can it be fixed?

DC And Palmiotti Respond To Criticism Of Harley Quinn Contest Page

DC Comics
DC Comics

When DC Comics co-publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee asked artists to try out for a gig drawing one page of Harley Quinn #0 by sending in a sample page, it seemed like the major criticisms would be the standard push-back for art or design contests: One person gets paid even though potentially thousands of fans do the work.

But then people took notice of one of the panels, which depicts Quinn naked in a bathtub, readying herself to pull a string that would dump plugged-in toasters, blow dryers and other electronics in the water. Anti-suicide groups including the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, American Psychiatric Association and National Alliance on Mental Illness felt DC was making light of suicide. Others called it exploitative. Now, DC is officially addressing those criticisms.
