Really? Such potential for character development wasted on keeping one of the murderous and cliched villains whose characterization is, frankly, stagnant. Ugh. My main interest in Harley is the "hate" side of her love/hate relationship with Joker, but of course she can't be anything but his love-interest!

Though at least Selina's not hanging out with Ivy and Harley any more. I never bought that Selina would hang around with Ivy and Harley who, after all, are villains, not anti-heroes as Selina is.

So the Joker was going around scratching small children with a rusty nail in hope they'd get tetanus and die? That's... possibly the weakest, and most sodding stupid, plot I've ever come across from him.

And after murdering innocents to get in to see the Joker, I'm supposed to find her hugging him, what? Loathesome? Amusing? I genuinely don't know what they're aiming for, but I know I don't give a shit.

REBELS gets canceled and this thing keeps shambling on long after it has any reason to. Some days, DC, you make it really hard to be an optimist.

On the plus side, Selina's departure is long overdue. After the whole Batman Reborn crisis blew over she really had no reason to stick around.

I know I had no reason to expect this to end any differently. It's just so, so...

So she just told Aaron Cash that the Joker killed his son. Why did he let Harley just hug him as opposed to blowing the clown's brains out himself?

Because it's so stupid, and it's happening right at the end, I'm going to wait until next month and see if it sticks before declaring it terrible writing.

. . . . maybe she's pretending to love him and then plans on psychologically throwing a whammy on him and then finally killing him?

Honestly, this isn't a book I followed regularly, but when it started, I found it interesting. Around then and before I was thinking that ultimately this series will be all about redemption. Selina was already a face, but Poison Ivy and Harley, especially Harley, I was most interested in. I wanted to see if they can change their ways and just enjoy the journey. I had hopes for Harley after the Clown At Midnight (a favorite Joker story of mine), considering that she finally opened her eyes. I was hoping for a funny, epic redemption story with plenty of hijinks that only Harley can provide. Instead..we get this. Since it says to be continued, I will hold off judgement, but seriously..if it all just ends with this..then this series will have been a fucking waste.

Also Joker scratching kids with a rusty There's just a..level of cruelty to it that seems too much even for the Joker. It's something that just turns you off from him.

Hahahah, inevitable conclusion right here. This book is on such a perfect downward spiral you can pick out its crash site with pinpoint accuracy.

The Joker seriously needs to go away for a while. Kill him off, put him on hiatus, I don't care. Give him 5 to 10 years away from comics. Then when you bring him back, go back to a guy who could commit crimes other than cold-blooded murder and who, when he did kill, would make it part of a punchline instead of just doing it because he can.

Honestly, I'm quite dumbfounded that DC doesn't seem interested in capturing some of the Joker's animated appearances in their depiction of the character. The Joker from the DCAU or even Batman: The Brave and the Bold captures the character very well. But it looks like DC is insisting on doing a poor imitation of Heath Ledger's depiction instead. (Not to take anything away from Ledger's Joker, which was excellent, but it's just one facet of the character.)

I'm so tired of Joker and his "untouchable" status that I didn't find him killing a baby too out there. After all, they try to pull something outrages and upsetting every time they use him. There's nowhere to go anymore but this, I suppose.

It's disgusting. They completely ruined the character for me who once was my favorite villain. I can't bear him anywhere (just once in B&R by Morrison in the last 5 years) Just kill him and keep him in the fridge for a time.

As for Harley, well...Not surprised a bit. When the book started, I thought maybe she would be allowed to grow but we all know how the book went.

Just please don't let Selina return. Please. That's all I want. I hate that she's in it. Writing for her character is completely off, it never made sense that she hung out with Ivy and Harley. Write her in her own book or write her into the Bat books. Anything but this.

Just cancel this.

Okay a couple questions

1. Has Joker EVER had a hiatus? Like has he died and not shown up for a year? The ony hiatus I can think of is when Batman died.

2. How does the general villian community view Joker? I'm mostly curious about Flash's rogues.

Joker, Joker, JOKER. How is THAT funny?! Edgy Joker needs to be shelved for a while.
