Harley Quinn Animated Series: Legion Of Bats Opening Will Be Legendary

Bleeding Cool had previously shared some of Shae Beagle's upcoming artwork from Harley Quinn: The Animated Series: Legion Of Bats #1, the new DC Comics spinoff of the animated show that much of Warner Bros. hates, but has done really, really well with the ratings and sales. And much can be said the same between DC Comics and this comic, which is produced outside of the usual editorial strictures.

Including this first opening page from giving us Harley Quinn fighting alongside Nightwing, Batgirl and Robin – or at least running after them in the wake of them swinging across rooftops. Harley Quinn has to use the stairs, and ends up dealing with Bane before anyone else…

But what I didn't share – or know – at the time, was Harley Quinn's opening line from that first page, written by Tee Franklin. Bleeding Cool has had it extracted for us by someone, ahead of its October release, or earlier on the DC Universe Infinite App.

Set directly after the conclusion of Season 3, Harley Quinn screams out "Thanks for waiting, you f-cking dildos! I'll take the stairs!" Just, you know, without the hyphen.

We do like a sweary opening, Four Weddings & A Funeral was always a classic in that regard, and the Misfits first episode line "I'm gonna kick you so hard…" set the tone of that show rather nicely. I get the feeling this Harley Quinn opening will do the same. I wonder if it will be included in previews?
