What I loved the most, though, was all the amazing women characters. They were super cool, super strong and could hold their own against anyone. But not canonically. Not on the pages of an actual real universe DC Comic. Not until last week. This is honestly a huge moment for queer representation in superhero comics.

Drawn to Comics: Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy Finally Have Their First In-Canon, Main-Universe Kiss!
While the first season of Harley Quinn teased something more than friendship for Harley and Poison Ivy, this season toned down the foreshadowing down a bit. Instead of relationships, Harley's been more laser-focused on killing off the Injustice League to rule new New Gotham. Season 2 has Ivy head over heels in love with him, so much so they're engaged and wedding planning.
Fans have been anxiously waiting to see how Harley Quinn would handle the romance between Pamela Isley and Harleen Quinzel. The two villains have been romantically linked for nearly as long as they've been best friends and partners in crime, though their earliest appearances in cartoons and comics merely teased at their true relationship. They urged fans to be patient, however, given that the show started with Ivy and Harley barely being friends, much less best friends and lovers like in other universes. This was an intentional choice, meant to develop both characters individually before bringing them together.
