Barbara Gordon and the Joker in DC Comics Today (Spoilers)

Posted by October 24, 2018 Comment

Today’s Batgirl #28 sees Barbara Gordon flashback to moments that may not be forgotten…

While Old Lady Harley #1 who has her own history with the man, looks to a future where that may not be an issue as much… as well as the second best line in a superhero comic today (Black Panther Vs Deadpool has the best)…

However Batman Beyond #25, sharing a future timeline it seems with Old Harley Quinn, is bringing someone back…

Somedays you just can’t get rid of a Joker.

But the Laughing Boys Gang has another idea-they’ll follow her to the ends of the Earth, to drag her back to their leader! It can’t actually be…him! Right?! He couldn’t possibly still be alive, could he? After all…Harley killed him herself with her bare hands! Should she turn to President Power Girl for help? Or flee to the 51st state, Atlantis?
