A couple of regular contestants give us their takes on Harley Quinn:
"For Harley's redesign I wanted to give her a more realistic, grim look without totally diving into the Nolan-verse. I like the idea of her being an acrobat of sorts, using her reflexes and agility against opponents instead of relying on gadgets and such like The Joker. Being a psychiatrist, she has to spend her days acting cool and collected behind a desk. But when she puts on her mask, she's able to release her child-like raw emotion and liberate herself from the daunting tasks she used to practice. She plays dress up to escape the grim world around her and her ignorance becomes the source of all her irrational actions."
*Editor's Note: SHotM is a self-proclaimed "relatively family-friendly" site. We're dealing with superheroes, so there are bound to be darker themes from time to time. However, I've had to reject a couple of pieces on grounds of nudity/sexuality. While Robert's amazing piece certainly doesn't fit that criteria, some may find Harley's "gesture" offensive. I certainly never want to censor anyone, but I also don't want to receive angry parent e-mails. So, if you want to see Robert's piece "unfiltered", click here.
