The Batman Adventures: Mad Love by Paul DiniThe trend in superheroes of the late 1980s was dark, grim, gritty, and not very kid friendly. Then along came the animated Batman series. The visual style was totally unique: clean, sharp, and bold. Batman Adventures: Mad Love is an original comics story drawn in the style of the popular animated series. Its even put together by Paul Dini, a major force behind the animated show. This particular story involves Batmans old foe, the Joker, and Jokers cute but deadly sidekick, Harley Quinn. Actor Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame, who plays the voice of the Joker in the animated series, claims that this is one of his all-time favorite comics, calling it bold, lusty, gleefully demented.

Shortly around that time she was on Days of Our Lives. I was home sick one day and I was watching Days on TV, and she was playing a jester-type character in a fantasy sequence. I said, 'That's really kind of funny.
They plotted the main story out over dinner, and pitched it almost immediately to DC Comics, where it was greenlit as Batman Adventures: Mad Love , a comic set in the continuity of the animated series.

That origin story would become her origin when Harley Quinn made her DC Universe debut, and has been translated onto the big screen in Suicide Squad.

With DC finally giving us a movie universe starting with Man of Steel and now Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice it is off to a rocky start that I would best call a blueprint missing critical components. Also with their upcoming movies I think this one is here to stay even if what happens after the Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman movies feels pretty much up in the air in terms of what there movie universe will look like after those two movies. With how far ahead Marvel is and how well their more planned approach to the MCU has been for the fans, audiences and the box office returns I can understand why DC would want to go for a less planned and different feel and toned movie universe approach. However there is a better way to go. In other mediums in what feels like a long time ago, TV and animation based on DC comics have pulled off universes with multiple characters and more thought towards the continuity. First on TV excluding animation for the moment back in the year Smallville aired its very first episode and aired the final episode in The show was basically a Superman origins and prequel TV show but it did grow to become more than that.
