Harley Quinn was created in 1992 as Joker’s accomplice in Batman: The Animated Series. She quickly became a fan favorite, and was adapted for the comic books as well. It comes as no surprise that she has also made it into the LEGO DC Universe. The first Minifigure Harley Quinn appeared in 2008 in set 7886, Harley’s Hammer Truck. She has since appeared in numerous costumes and multiple sets. My favorite is still in the original animated series costume. Here’s a LEGO reimagining of Harley’s origin…
It all began as professional interest. I was fresh out of grad school, looking to make a name for myself. What better way then to be the first the understand the inner workings of the world’s most infamous psychopath?
As months went by, and the Joker began to reveal his secrets to me, it became apparent that he was not what everyone had made him out to be. The Joker was in fact a victim. Ruthlessly pursued and pushed towards criminal behaviour by a vigilante gone wild.
Joker was actually a caring soul when you striped away the mask society had forced upon him. I found myself developing more than just a professional interest in this case. If only there was a way for him to be given a legitimate chance in the real world, without all the prejudice and preconceptions. If only I could help him succeed somehow.
And so, a plan was born to break him out. One fateful night, I found myself back at work in the late hours.
My heart was racing as I made my way through the halls of the Asylum. I had to play it cool to not arouse suspicion.
Everything seemed to be going to plan.
I had stored some materials in the asylum to help make this night perfect.
