most recent animated Harley Quinn The show, on HBO Max, is probably a favorite depiction of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy fans. Not only are they the quintessential version of their DC Comic characters, but they fall in love on-screen as well as being cranky and goofy. Not to mention, the story and arc set any comic-fan’s heart high. However, there is a view from batman and harley quinn It really is the best representation of Harley and Ivy’s relationship.
Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy met on the 1990s show ‘Batman: The Animated Series’.
Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy’s Latest Evolution Is Going Nowhere If ‘Harley Quinn’ Gets a Third Season
Poison Ivy first appeared in 1966, and has since become a blatant villain. But he and Harley Quinn first met in the 1990s. In Batman: The Animated Series In the episode “Joker’s Favour”, Harley arrives on the scene as the Joker’s girlfriend and Kami, though she is highly skilled.
Several episodes later, in “Harley and Ivy”, the two finally meet for the first time. The Joker fires Harley Quinn and to prove that she “can commit crimes,” she plans her own robbery at a museum. Of course, who else? poison ivy.
Ivy has to step in to help the two escape the authorities and they flee to Poison Ivy’s hideout in Toxic Acres. It’s an abandoned neighborhood full of toxins that only Ivy can withstand, and she injects Harley with some stuff to help her survive.
In ‘Batman and Harley Quinn’, Harley teams up with Batman to take down Ivy
Since that episode, the two have been inseparable in their various forms together. And while they haven’t been girlfriends and boyfriends until recently, the subtext always has been. Even in its first appearance of the ’90s, the spark and chemistry was visible.
of 2019 Harley Quinn The animated series was at the forefront of Harlevy’s duet as an animated TV series and gave a really nuanced story of their progression from best friends to lovers. But one scene that really stands out and shows their deep, deep bond is from the 2017 film, batman and harley quinn.
Yes, batman and harley quinn There’s a slightly deeper cut, and it wasn’t universally liked, but hear us out.
In the film, the Caped Crusader has to ask Harley Quinn for help defeating Poison Ivy, which, together with the Floronic Man, has turned everyone into plant people. Poison Ivy absolutely hates all humans, and loves plants, so it’s the perfect way in her head to explain the Earth’s pollution problems and hate problems to its people. The Floronic Man is kind of just evil and the mind controls him a bit.
Harley finally helps and it ends in a fight scene between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. This is the scene that really shows their connection. It’s full of negative emotions as Harley is trying to save the (interesting) world, but also full of passion. She knows that Ivy is not the one to kill the human race, and appeals to the weakest part of her best friend. The part that can’t see Harley crying.
It’s sweet, it’s silly, and it saves the world. A chef’s kissing Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy moment, if you will.
But, the film portrayed Harley poorly in other ways.
While the film certainly has that great moment and is a really great look at these characters overall, it suffers from (what seems like) the age-old problem of women in comics getting older.
There is a scene between Harley and Nightwing where she ties him to the bed, turns in front of him, and it is indicated that they perform adult activities. While screenwriter Bruce Timm pointed out SyFyWire In 2017, having pointed out that “Harley being sexually aggressive and sexually active” is nothing new, people don’t have issue with how she is portrayed here. As Tim said, he’s 100 percent his MO.
As people on the internet have written, it has something more to do with how she’s drawn than one might say Jessica Rabbit.
There are many instances where women are drawn in in an oversexual way, as Beth Alderkin wrote in some Tweets Back in 2017. The former io9 writer shared a screengrab from the scene when Harley’s bum is up In the air, only in underwear.
“This is what happens when men have creative control. One butt crack on top of another butt crack,” she wrote.
This goes back to the constant conversation about men portraying female comic book characters how they want women to look, regardless of proper anatomy. Emphasize only the larger proportions and how they are showing them. What it’s like to compare how Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn dresses suicide squad Unlike (2016) birds of prey (2020).
Regardless, between the voice acting and that final scene, that movie pulled off Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.
