    Default Is DC trying to make Harley Quinn their Deadpool?

    With Harley Quinn taking a more comedic turn the last few years I have to wonder is DC trying to turn Her into their Deadpool. Her comics take on more of a slapstick role and go away from what she was when she started out. So I just thought I would ask this question.

    Pretty much even though Lobo was pretty much their Deadpool before he even debuted.

    Well, they sure as hell are trying. Not sure it's ever going to go somewhere but sweet mother of Shiva, are they doing all they can or what?

    They already have. She's probably just as popular or more popular than Deadpool.

    I live for the day when Keith Giffen decides to do another Ambush Bug comic. You want fourth wall breaking humour that will make your ears bleed and your eyes melt, Ambush Bug was the pure uncut street drug of self-reflexiveness. Accept no substitutes. Deadpool isn't good enough to hold Ambush Bug's jock strap.

    Has Deadpool ever been as reviled by some fans as Harley Quinn is today?

    I've seen him get his fair share of hate over the years.

    Overexposure does that to a character.

    Could've gone the Lobo route, but nooo. Had to be Joker's ex.

    Part of the problem is that Deadpool is generally hated and mistrusted for being a fairly scummy guy in-universe by the hero community, but Harley is pushed as a strong female role model that's liked by pretty much everyone in the hero community regardless of how violent she is.
