Harley Quinn is Another Bisexual Comic Book Character

Image-111bMove over Catwoman, the bisexuality headlines as far as comic book characters will have to be shared by a new bi character, “Harley Quinn.”

She’s hot, she’s sexy, she’s bouncing from girls to guys and back. The website Bleeding Cool says that another one of the publisher’s popular female characters is bisexual and in the latest March issue, Harley Quinn No. 15, the clown princess has a rather amorous moment with Poison Ivy.

It starts off with a bubble bath, but then it progresses, and then, when her boyfriend comes home, she runs to his arms.

The Catwoman bisexuality was detailed in The Guardian, the Daily Mailthe BBC, the VergeWashington TimesSouth China Morning PostBoing BoingCNNBustleBlastr, and a lot of other mainstream media. In the case of Harley Quiin, it takes a bit of wine for her to make a pass at her redheaded female friend.
