DC Comics have made quite a bit of interesting moves as of late. They recently gave Batman a gender change, but the latest move of interest is with Joker and Harley Quinn.
Writer and Artist Sean Gordon Murphy, who’s been working on Batman: White Knight, uploaded a pretty interesting photo of the two characters in a very sexually intimate position – though it’s not clear if it was before or after they had sex.
Back in August, DC Entertainment found themselves at the center of controversy (who isn’t these days?) when they featured Dick Grayson (Nightwing) and Harley Quinn in an animated sex scene. The scene was even interpreted as a “rape scene” by some fans.
It may cause controversy, but I doubt it will be on the same level as when Marvel turned Captain America into a Nazi – something Geoff Johns recently confirmed DC Comics will not do with Superman – which wouldn’t really make sense anyway. Not that Captain America’s change did either.
Fans weren’t just vocal about the changes Marvel has made, they just quit buying the comics, leading some to believe that Marvel Comics could be in trouble.
I think taking chances are a good thing and what make or break comic books or movies. It only seems to backfire when you dramatically change or alter a beloved character, or when raging fanboys want to be pissed off about something. I’m not sure this Batman comic will cause a ton of controversy, but who knows?
Batman: White Knight #2 will be released November 1, 2017.
