Couples Counseling, a batman fanfic | FanFiction
Batman promises to reveal his secret identity once they're married, but unfortunately, Marcia disappears. Queen Bee is definitely due for a reboot! This results in his father, Thomas Wayne, becoming that timeline's far more brutal and tortured Batman.
What happens to his wife, Martha? Her gruesome accomplishments as the Joker include kidnapping Harvey Dent's daughter and tricking Jim Gordon into shooting her, murdering Gordon, and jumping to her death when Thomas reveals that there's a way to rewrite the timeline so that Bruce lives and becomes Batman.
Maybe Thomas and Martha should have tried their hand at marriage counseling? The Dark Knight 1. Jaina's unique powers allow her to completely split herself into two separate bodies and personalities.
This, combined with the fact that the character has only very recently been introduced, means there's plenty of potential for a budding romance with the Dark Knight. Jaina's naturally another one of Gotham's wealthy socialites and she and Bruce immediately begin flirting within seconds of laying eyes on one another. Batman becomes acquainted with Jaina's White Rabbit persona when he attempts to stop a mass breakout of Arkham, and is forced to go toe to toe with several baddies pumped up by a mysterious super steroid courtesy of Miss Hudson.
Wayne definitely has a type!
The two have clashed many times over the years. Lady Shiva is one of the most dangerous assassins in the world and a master in seemingly more martial arts styles than Batman himself. For Batman, this would be a pretty good "in" with Lady Shiva but it's revealed that she is not and proceeds to all but defeat Batman in combat Robin intervened at the last second.
For one of the deadliest killers in DC Comics, she certainly has a gentler, more maternal side at least for Robins. But lately I'm beginning to think there isn't. That's why I wanted the Arkham shrinks to set up this whole couples counseling session.
I think if we can just start communicating again, we'd have a chance. Or at least, you do. You never shut up these days, do ya, ya dumb blonde? You might not know this, Doc, but little Harley here used to be my shrink, and back then she used to listen.
Joker, tell me about that. J, I want that! He's just a selfish, self-absorbed, egotistical creep! How long has your relationship been?
Since the last time we broke up, about eight days. I nearly cut my goddamn arm off! Not one goddamn thought in that empty blonde skull of yours. You're not clever, you're not useful, you're not funny, I don't even know why I keep you around sometimes! If we can find out what that is, if we can isolate that, then maybe we can make some progress. But the only way we can do that is if you both stop flinging insults around and try to listen, to each other and to me, and to try to address some of the problems of your relationship.
Will you give it that chance? I tell her to do stuff, and she does what I say. The only problem is when Little Miss High and Mighty here gets on her high horse and goes off on one of her 'I deserve better' rants. I used to be a doctor, y'know! You didn't even go to college!
You should be on your knees thanking me, not demanding crap all the time! It was the stuff of the great romances. But yeah, I guess he did. Yeah, if you want to take all the fun and romance out of it, that's what happened.
He seduced me, we had an affair, and I busted him out. I believe the illicitness of your relationship was and is one of its attractions. Would you say the Joker's noteriety is something that attracts you to him? I mean, not many gals can say their boyfriend is the Joker, the most dangerous criminal in the world, can they? And he can be such a bad, dirty, naughty boy sometimes," she murmured, grinning at him.
J," she breathed, gazing at him in adoration.
Joker, would you say part of the appeal of the relationship for you is the power? You took the power of that relationship and turned it on its head. Was that, in your mind, a kind of joke? Was that part of the appeal of this at first? I don't think I ever thought about it that much.
I needed a way out, and she was my ticket. You figure it out. Nobody can rev me up like puddin' can. Although it would be nice if he did it a little more often.
Greedy brat's never satisfied — always wants more," muttered Joker. They share a moment, but Harley realizes that her 'Pop' is trying to find out where she has stashed money away for him.
As Harley goes to exit the building, a guard asks for a picture. She tries to refuse, but the guard claims that her father promised she would and he had given him money for the photo: This angers Harley even further. Quinn soon returns to Gotham City, not wanting to stay anywhere near her family. She then goes back to living with Catwoman and Poison Ivy in an abandoned animal kennel, which she warmly regards as her new home.
Following a number of adventures with Catwoman and Ivy, Harley betrays them and breaks into Arkham with the goal of killing the Joker for abusing her as often as he did.
However, Harley ultimately chooses to instead release Joker from his cell, and together the two orchestrate a violent takeover of the facility that results in most of the guards and staff members either being killed or taken hostage by the inmates.
Harley and the Joker are eventually defeated by Batman and Catwoman, and Harley is last seen being wheeled away while bound in a straitjacket and muzzle. Shortly after this, Poison Ivy breaks into Harley's cell and attempts to kill her for her betrayal, but instead offers to free her if she helps kill Catwoman, who had left both of her fellow Sirens behind in Arkham. Harley agrees, and the two set out to trap Catwoman. During the ensuing fight, Catwoman says that she saw good in them and really only wanted to help.
Just as Batman is about to arrest them, Catwoman helps the two of them escape. She is then tortured and forcibly inducted into the Suicide Squad by Amanda Waller. It is eventually revealed that she no longer wears face paint, and that her bleached skin is now part of a permanent condition. She also seems to be attracted to Deadshotas she sees an abusive leader in him just as she saw in the Joker.
Despite having no powers at all, she proves to be a valuable asset to the Squad, though she is easily the most mentally unstable Deadshot described her as "cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. Surprisingly, she does not show any visible reaction upon hearing of the Joker's "death" beyond stopping in her tracks and staring off into space, though after Deadshot snaps her out of her day dream and tells her to focus she replies "Focus.
Consider me very focused right now". In the fourth issue she is moved into isolation and separated from the rest of the Suicide Squad, which confuses the Belle Reeve guards as she is a powerless unstable woman, though as her guards ask what she could possibly do Waller insults the guard's intelligence and Quinn smiles at the guard.
She is not seen with the rest of the Suicide Squad when they are sent to put down the break out at Belle Reeve. It's revealed at the end of the fifth issue that Quinn somehow orchestrated the breakout and deactivated her bomb as a diversion to escape from Belle Reeve, and is shown to be going to Gotham City to learn about Joker's death.
Quinn returns to Gotham and begins a crime spree with henchmen in her image. During the issue Quinn flashbacks to her first meetings with Joker, though her origins have been slightly altered as of the reboot.
Unlike her DCAU counterpart and previous versions, Harleen never believed any of the Joker's tales about his childhood and is shown to be both incredibly intelligent and has some fighting proficiency as shown when she threatened the Joker upon realizing he has brought a knife into their first session.
In their tenth session Joker reveals what he learned about Harley, that her father had been killed in a hit-and-run by a drunk, wealthy rich man who had enough connections to escape the charges and jail time.
How ‘Batman and Harley Quinn” Failed Harley And Poison Ivy
Joker then presents her with the man's finger, explaining it would be difficult to sneak the man's fat corpse into the Asylum, but that he had already tried as much. She tortures a psychologist and former friend for the location of Joker's body before slitting the woman's throat. In order to get to his face Harley allows herself to be arrested by the GCPD and brought into their building. She and Savant fight, until she outsmarts Savant by trapping him in a pressure cell rigged to explode should he attempt to escape, and mockingly says to stay there.
She drops infrared bombs, blinding Deadshot, and sneaks up behind him, knocking him out with her sledgehammer.
He wakes up unmasked and is forced to wear Joker's face. Harley, now believing that Deadshot is Joker, asks him why he didn't come back for her.

Going along, he asks her that if she truly loves him, she would try to kill the Bat family. So happily, she runs towards 'the Joker', but Deadshot shoots her in the gut. Quinn survived, but requires surgery to recover from her grievous wounds. Amanda Waller still considers Harley as part of the Suicide Squad despite what had happened, but threatens her not to pull this kind of stunt again.
