    Harley definitely shouldn't hold a candle to an Amazon in a straight up fight.

    Neither should Cass or Dinah imo.

    Btw. am I the only who thinks Cass setting up a trap like that is a bit off? She is usually not particularly good with tec.

    Dinah's one of the best trained fighters on the superhero side. Plus she's trained with WW so I'd fully expect her to be able to take an Amazon on and with effort - win. But not easily unless she brings in the Cry.

    Like it works fine enough but the team hasn't really coalesced into anything special.
    Agree to disagree on that. The team's chemistry is the reason that this is one of the only monthlies I pick up that's completely safe from being dropped.
    Keep in mind that you have about as much chance of changing my mind as I do of changing yours.

I am glad Harley is more now, back watching BTAS I always felt Joker should never have girlfriend because his obsession with Batman. She is chaotic good.
    Why would his obsession with Batman prevent him from having a minion?

    Their whole relationship stems from the fact she's decent help and Joker ya know likes having loyal lackeys around.

    And I hardly qualify Harley as chaotic good as she's perfectly willing to commit crimes without Joker's influence. BTAS had a whole episode where she and Ivy go on a crime-spree, and when it looked like they accidentally murdered Bruce Wayne they just laughed it off.

    Yeah, the thing is even separated from Joker she's demonstrated a few times she's not a great person and enjoyed being a Supervillain/criminal.

    Don't know, like I said I'm not really much of an wonder woman expert, but when i see that 5 year old Lizzie can appearently one shot Killer Croc, I simply don't see how that should work, without the cry.

    Granted that is a pretty universal gag for writers.

    Then had Bat-dad beat the entire Bat family.

    Would someone please tell King that he's not Grant Morrison?

    Oh yeah, that was a pretty bad one.

    I think I remember people justifying it like "well, he's Batman too!"

    • Barbara will be in issues 6-8
