Harley Quinn and Joker are Gotham underground’s it couple. Yes they are dysfunctional, neurotic and downright crazy about each other. But nobody could measure up to what Joker is in Harley’s life and what Harley is in Joker’s life. Nobody, I mean nobody can replace them in Gotham as well as in each other’s life.
But that is the thing about DC universe when you feel like something is impossible they just turn back smile at you and make it seem possible with a finesse that you couldn’t imagine. I mean Gwen Stacy could die, in some iterations Harley could kill Joker. Then this is also something in the realm of possibility.
The impossible thing that I am talking about is that Joker has gotten himself a new girl. Though not as batshit crazy as Quinn but definitely devastatingly intense. And her name is Punchline. Well it is suitable she did punch the guts of all Harley Joker fans all over the world.
Her arrival was teased last month by none other than James Tynion IV. It has been confirmed that Punchline will have a cameo in Batman #89 and will have a full length appearance in the following week’s Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3.
Batman #89 is being written by Tynion IV, Guillem March and Tomeu Morey and Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3, will be by Tynion IV, Steve Epting, Javier Fernandez and Nick Filardi.
All of this information has come from Tynion IV’s newsletter in which he says about the progress of his stories and has also mentioned that Punchline will also be a huge part of the upcoming storyline titled ‘’Joker War”.
The comics hint over an alliance between Joker and Lex Luthor. If so it will be epic to see two supervillains coming together and raising havoc.
