    Default Harley Quinn powers or abilities

    I've recently started reading comics and I'm really enjoying Harleen, but as I've read about the character one thing isn't explained, does Harley have any special training or abilities?

    She has been physically enhanced by a serum Poison Ivy made for her that gave her a minor healing factor in case Joker ever took things too far with her and because she got the same acid dip as the Joker she is immune to Ja lot of his poisons and gases.

    Other than that she is your typical badass normal in comics

    Thanks, I'm assuming 52 is some kind of big reset.

    I'm not 100% sure on her current New 52/Rebirth backstory, but let's not underestimate her gymnast background. It's not quite martial arts, but it's generally accepted Harley's had enough Olympic level gymnastics training and keep up the practice to do some impressive physical feats and help give a edge of hand-to-hand fighting.
    Her background as a psychiatrist might also count as a ability. Doesn't seem to come up often, but it's there.

    does she

    Every time the suicde squad does a rollout or batman does a criminal profile

    she is listed as wildly unpreditable a chaotic force

    so her power or ability is being so random, she can take by suprise genus fighters like batman, and slip between what are real life gods Wonder Woman and Superman
    How she can fight on an even playground with even boostergold is beyond me, she does have her near olympic gymnastic skills and some black ops training from the SS

    Harley Quinn appeared for in the 90's Batman: the animated serie.
    With her success DC integrated her in the main comics with the excellent story Batman: Mad Love.

    In 2011, DC had a reboot after Flash messed up with timeline during the Flashpoint event.
    All hereos had a hard reboot except Batman and Green Lantern who couldn't really reboot them.
    This new era was called New52.

    The New52 era lasted until 2016 where we learn that the timelines that Flash messed up during Flashpoint are partially re-appearing in the new timeline.
    This event is called DC Univers Rebirth.

    Starting with New52, Harley Quinn had her own title and was part of the Suicid Squad.

    So I recommand you read:
    - Harley Quinn: A Celebration of 25 Years
    - Batman: Mad Love
    - Flashpoint
    - Harley Quinn by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti omnibus vol.1-2 (New52)
    - DC Univers Rebirth
    - Harley Quinn by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti omnibus vol.3 (Rebirth)
    - Justice League vs. Suicide Squad (Rebirth)

    Have Fun
