Harley Quinn Wants To Be Batman's Next Robin (Batman #112 Spoilers)

A month ago, Bleeding Cool posted the article Harley Quinn Wants To Be Batman's Second Bisexual Robin directly after the news that Tim Drake was confirmed by DC Comics to also be of that orientation., Bleeding Cool had broken the confirmation of the story that has been bubbling under for some time in the pages of Batman: Urban Legends, that Tim Drake, the third Robin, was coming to terms with his feelings for an old friend, Bernard. With a meeting of old friends turning into a date – with a second date planned, though you'll have to wait till December for Batman: Urban Legends #10. We labelled it "bisexual or bicurious?" as Tim Drake was unwilling to label himself as anything, and on the page it is all still up in the air, that didn't stop the mainstream media from going all in and soon DC Comics came out to confirm it themselves. But what about Harley Quinn?

Batman #106

Harley Quinn is the former lover of The Joker and Booster Gold, and the long time non-exclusive girlfriend of Poison Ivy. Since The Joker War, she has been working more and more with the Batman and his Gotham crew, after rescuing Batman from The Joker, and now is becoming more and more of a sidekick. In Batman #106, we got a single page of Harley Quinn managing not to get caught up in the action and complaining about how she isn't getting paid to be a good guy in Gotham. In the first issue of her own new title, Harley Quinn, took that complaint to the boss.

Harley Quinn is the former lover of The Joker and Booster Gold, and the long time non-exclusive girlfriend of Poison Ivy. Since The Joker War, she has been working more and more with the Batman and his Gotham crew, after rescuing Batman from The Joker, and now is becoming more and more of a sidekick. It looks like she's going to want to make it official.

If so, will that make Harley Quinn Batman's second bisexual Robin? Or will have Dick Grayson and/or Jason Todd have something to say on that matter? It is a role she has tried on before, specifically on the cover of Harley Quinn #58, but that set in its own fantasy world. This demand is actually made in the Batbooks. Of course, as today's Blue And Gold #2 reveals, there's a lot of discussion amongst the other superheroes as to where Batman gets his Robins from anyway…
