In Batman #103, Clownhunter went for Harley Quinn in a big way, blaming her for the Joker's actions, something she didn't take too kindly to, let alone any responsibility.
Ghost-Maker got in the way of that, but the situation reared its head again in Batman #104. With the news that the Joker killed his parents and she was there for it.
But in Batman #105, Harley Quinn was able to plead her case.
Talking about her life with the Joker and how she was also a victim of his actions. But even taking responsibility for what she had done.
And she is putting her life in Clownhunter's hands. Or Bat-Bat. Or Knife-Knife.
She got off. But should she have? Today's follow-up Batman Annual #5 from James Tynion IV and James Stokoe backs up the Batman gossip we talked about a month or so ago. "Harley Quinn brought the Joker into the restaurant owned by Clownhunter's parents – and secured their deaths at the Joker's hands."
Which is just what plays out in today's comic books.
With Harley Quinn in a position where she knew precisely what would happen next.
After all, he is the Joker; the Batman's not around, there's only one way this ends.
Leaving one big question.
Should Clownhunter have killed Harley Quinn?
