Synopsis for "The Life and Death of Harley Quinn"
Harley narrates the tale of the universe (and also of her own self), it was created in the Big Bang due to extreme temperature and collision of particles. In the same way, Harley was born when a sperm collided with an egg. She grew up and had a normal life where she didn't do anything different, and eventually earned a PhD in psychology. Harley decided to work at the Arkham Asylum, so she could help the patients there. There, she met the Joker whom she found attractive and charming.
The Joker helped her bring out her true personality and she legally changed her name to Harley Quinn. The two committed a lot of crimes together, but he eventually grew tired of her and started mistreating her. After their breakup, Harley was only depressed for a very short amount of time and decided to strike out on her own. She eventually came across Batman, whom she also thought of as a despicable person like the Joker, and was sent to jail by him.
In prison, Harley decided to change her life and focus on herself to discover who she really is. She also met two new friends, Catwoman and Poison Ivy, who helped in changing her life. With their assistance, she made her own mark on the criminal scene and they encouraged her to do things in her life the way she wanted. Harley eventually confronted her ex-boyfriend Joker and punched him in revenge for throwing her out earlier, before proceeding to become a vigilante and wipe out crime from Gotham City. The city saw her as a hero, but she realized that the whole world needed her.
Harley even helped Justice League in taking down their villains and she confronted Starro on her own when it had once defeated them all. After some time, she opened up a burger restaurant chain called "House of Starro Burger", which sold the unique burger called Starro Burger. Harley however wanted to help more people and started assisting anyone she could find from the various universes or realities. As captain of a weaponized warship, she confronted and killed the Anti-Monitor. She encouraged everyone to be compassionate and kind, while only using violence if there was no other choice. In addition, she taught the value of finding happiness in small things.
Harley eventually married Plastic Man and gave birth to two daughters, later she passed away peacefully in the company of her family and friends. Everyone mourned her at her funeral, but it only lasted for a minute as the Earth was destroyed when it was struck by a comet. After finishing her tale, Harley tucks in her pet hyenas Bud and Lou for the night, before telling them to always remember she loves them.
