This issue feels like one of those one-shots that were inducted into the whole thing making 9 parts series. What I mean by that is that the story itself doesn't progress very much. Aside from one little revelation it practically doesn't progress at all, but about that later.

With the beating itself, I don't have a problem. Wally seemed distracted with Roy's body and Harley sucker-punched him. Same with her "fight" with the Trinity. They clearly underestimated her, they didn't want to hurt her so she exploited that. At least that's how I interpreted that scene. And let's not forget her bad-ass sidekick. The poker playing penguin.

Darkseid24 - Nov 28, 2018

I do, since even so Flash was distracted he would react. As for the Trinity there was no reason for WW to not beat Harley. She could stop her, before Harley could even move. Outsmarting Batman alone isn’t believable just bad writing.

I don’t believe Ivy is dead yet, but being queer isn’t the reason, why she shouldn’t die. It’s because she is a popular character& deserves better. Harley& Joker were way more fun together. It’s Harleys own fault, that she followed Joker. She enjoyed killing people, Joker didn’t force her to do that. Since he broke up with him, she turned into an annoying& ridiculously overpowered character, while Ivy became lame. Nowadays both are portrayed as hypocrites.
