No sign of Poison Ivy yet, of course. She's still taking on the role of Queen Ivy, controlling all plant life and preparing to attack Gotham – at some point in 2021. But Harley Quinn, who has survived having her throat cut by The Joker's new girlfriend Punchline, is back on the scene to finish what she started in today's Batman #100.
Harley Quinn has moved on from The Joker for quite some time. But sometimes an opportunity arises that you just can't ignore. Worth reopening a few old wounds to get closure all over again?
Or at least let Batman finish what she started. Taking aim at the Joker and shooting him in the head with a big gun, right in the eye socket. Or maybe just grazing him, it's a little unclear.
Still, it must beat the dartboard in terms of cathartic moments. You've got red on you, Joker.
Two halves of the same coin… Batman #100 is published today by DC Comics and it all kicks off.
