    I actually wonder if a smarter way to handle Arkham nowadays to avoid all sorts of negative stereotypes and cliches about mental health and criminality/violence might be put the Asylum early in Batman’s career only, and have Strange go “Monster Men” on some of the inmates to justify keeping them there, with Crane’s help.

    Incidentally, my preferred idea for Magpie would be to have her be Strange’s attempt to replicate Catwoman, with Magpie’s far more blatant kleptomania and screwed up approach to her sexuality being terrifying signs of what Strange thought goes into Selina.

    My suggestion would be to have two Asylums.

    One would be the classic Arkham Asylum; a facility with a long problematic history but the people who run Gotham thought it was the best place to warehouse all the dangerous, super powered villains under one roof. Arkham himself barely has control over his own staff and inmates. Hugo Strange regularly manipulates his own patients and makes them worse. Lyle Bolton regularly abuses them. Harley is Harley. Mayor regularly, discreetly cuts off funding to allow more super villains to escape in order to distract people from his own ineptitude and some of the board members cut deals with Belle Reeve to have inmates transferred over there where they wend up with the Squad and are seen a few months later roaming around the streets.

    The other one would be a modern humane mental facility. This is the place where guys like King Tut, Cavalier, Tweeldee & Tweeldum, the Penny Plunderer and all the C-Z villains gets sent to. No, this is not Blackgate, as that one was just a regular prison. Guys like Two-Face, Riddler, Ventriloquist & Scarface are sent here when they are in their less violent phases and acts as a half way house for them before they are deemed safe for release. Some of the villains actually reform and go on to have better lives but as many would tell you, 'that doesn't make the headlines'. The Joker is, of course, *never* sent to this facility.

    I love how the Adam Hughes cover is now an official in-universe mugshot for Catwoman and how Ivy couldn't resist posing seductively for a mugshot .

    Catwoman #34 – Then on August 17, Alleytown continues to be the hotspot in Gotham City, with Selina Kyle’s quest to keep her home safe beset on all sides, not only by law enforcement gone bad, but a potential invasion by the city’s villains as well. And if those problems aren’t enough, Batman makes the scene, breaking his and Selina’s vow to give each other another one-year break.

    Harley Quinn #6 – What would any crisis that threatens all of Gotham City be without Harley Quinn? Boring, that’s what! The mistress of mischief and mayhem teams up with Catwoman to kick the Magistrate out of Alleytown for good!
