Top 6 Alternate Versions of Harley Quinn

Welcome to another post, and in this post we’re counting some of the best alternate versions of the supervillian, Harley Quinn.  Harley Quinn is the Joker’ frequent accomplice and lover, whom she met while working as a psychiatrist at Arkham Asylum, where the Joker was a patient.

6. Batman: Assault on Arkham (2014)

Batman Assault on Arkham - Harley Quinn

Portrayal: Hynden Walch


5. Birds of Prey (2002)

Birds of Prey - Harley Quinn - Mia Sara

Sara gives a pretty insane and menacing performance as Dr. Harleen Quinzel, a psychotic psychiatrist whose goal is to take control of New Gotham.  Although the show sucked (on more than one level) the only shining light is the highly manipulative doctor who uses cunning (although kind of stupid) machinations to achieve her goals. Portrayed by Mia Sara.


4. The New 52

The New 52 - Harley Quinn


3. Batman: Arkham Series (Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, Batman: Arkham Origins, Batman: Arkham Knight)

Batman Arkham Knight - Harley Quinn

The video game does a great job of fleshing out Harley Quinn’s personality, much like in the Batman: The Animated Series.  She’s completely mad and in love with the Joker and does her best to prove herself as not only a criminal but as the Joker’s lover.  This version is probably the most violent version of Harley Quinn, especially after the Joker’s death. Voiced by Tara Strong and Arleen Sorkin.


2. Suicide Squad (2016)

Suicide Squad - Harley Quinn - Margot Robbie

Robbie does a phenomenal job of giving a great character even more pizzazz. She’s beautiful, she’s funny, she’s dangerous and she’s incredibly skilled as a combatant.  Also, she’s completely mad and mad in love with the Joker.  Portrayal: Margot Robbie


 1. Batman: The Animated Series

Batman The Animated Series - Harley Quinn

No incarnation could ever replace the original Harley Quinn.  Despite being a criminal she is one of the most memorable characters in the series, even providing a lot of great humor especially when it comes to her interactions with Batman.  She almost comes off as a spoiled, rebellious teenager running off with her boyfriend (Joker), and disobeying her father (Batman). Portrayal by Arleen Sorkin.
