Ryan Benjamin: Suicide Squad Vol. 4 #1 Cover (2011) Comic Book Art 02 JAN 2014

They’re a team of death-row super villains recruited by the government to take on missions so dangerous they’re sheer suicide! Harley Quinn! Deadshot! King Shark! Defeated and imprisoned, they’re being interrogated about their mission – and about who’s pulling the strings behind this illegal operation.

Written by Adam Glass, Suicide Squad hit their fourth outing in DC’s big The New 52 relaunch campaign, the first issue debuting a very different team, never mind a very different Harley Quinn!

Whilst Federico Dallocchio and Ransom Getty handled the interior art, the ever talented Ryan Benjamin was tasked with coming up with the particularly eye-catching first issue cover art, showing the new look Quinn at her finest!

Batman: Arkham Asylum Cosplay Quickie: Harley Quinn (Sophia Lancaster) Cosplay 07 NOV 2012

Batman: Arkham Asylum was a phenomenal game (apart from the plant segments) and definitely remains a must play game on any comic book gamer’s list. Whilst most of the characters retained their classic costumes, Harley Quinn showed up for a laugh in this uber sexy purple and red nurse outfit, which must have been such a hit that it was revisited (with even less cloth!) when DC later launched their major reboot, dubbed the New 52, and dragged her into the new incarnation of Suicide Squad.

Anyway, American cosplayer Sophia Lancaster, grabbed a gun and decided to give us a little tease by bringing to life the new red and purple nurse version of Harley Quinn – to great effect I might add! :)

Batman Adventures Cosplay: Harley Quinn (San Smith) Cosplay 17 JUN 2012

Cosplayer San Smith turns in this fantastically comical and faithful to the character rendition of The Joker’s right hand girl, Harley Quinn, from the loveable Batman Adventures franchise. (Note the brilliantly built cork pop gun!)

One of the few Batman characters to first appear outside of the comic medium before being pulled into the comics as canon, Harley Quinn was introduced in 1992’s Batman: The Animated Series courtesy of Paul Dini and Bruce Timm. Infatuated with the Joker (she was previously his psychiatrist at Arkham – as Dr. Harleen Quinzel), Harley is completely and utterly devoted to the psychotic clown, eagerly partaking in his schemes despite the horrible abuse she has to put up with from him.

Already a talented gymnast, Harley Quinn now finds herself immune to most poisons and toxins thanks to her contact with Poison Ivy, as well possessing above average fighting skills, agility and strength.

Anyway, this unidentified American cosplayer took it upon herself to pick up Harley’s sexy purple and red nurse duds at the 2011 Boston Comic Con, much to every fanboy’s delight we’re sure!

Review: The Batman/Superman Movie (1998) Animation | My Reviews 07 APR 2011

What do you do if you have one story broken over three episodes from a hit 1997 television show? You merge them into one movie and make more money by selling them direct to DVD of course!

And thus The Batman/Superman Movie was born.

Grabbing episodes 29, 30 and 31 from 1997 Season 2 of Superman: The Animated Series, the story titled World’s Finest (Parts I – III) in its original form, is penned by Alan Burnett and Paul Dini, and directed by Toshihiko Masuda.

The story involves a near bankrupt Joker hatching a scheme to replace the funds blocked thanks to the Batman’s Gotham activities, by stealing a large status made of Kryptonite and travelling over to Metropolis with the aim of striking a deal with Lex Luthor in order to kill Superman in exchange for a billion dollars.

But as luck would have it, Bruce Wayne is currently in partnership with LexCorp over a new robotics project, meaning that Batman too finds himself in the unfamiliar Metropolis, setting up the first ever meeting between the Man of Steel and the Bat, as they take on the combined might of two of their most cunning foes.

As with the writing for all the DC Animated Universe series’, the story is adventure-laden, packed with snappy dialogue, one-liners and puns, not to mention the non-stop action that this time around features two of DC’s biggest attractions in tights.

And the clever little feuding over Lois Lane between Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne is a particularly nice touch.

It is a thoroughly enjoyable, classic Batman and Superman story, animated with the distinctly stylized big chin and simple lines that came with all the original DC Animated universe fare, backed up of course with the all important voice work of Kevin Conroy as Batman, Mark Hamill as The Joker, Clancy Brown as Lex Luthor, Dana Delany as Lois Lane and of course, Tim Daly as Superman. And needless to say, everything is rounded off with a full orchestral score as per usual.

Thoroughly enjoyable, classic Batman and Superman action that all fanboys should be able to enjoy, making it well worth picking up from the DVD store, even if just to relive some of that animated nostalgia coming out of the late 90s when superheroes were finally done right!
