Fan favorite. Harley Quinn, or Dr. Harleen Quinzel, has never really been the main, go-to villain when fighting against The Dark Knight. But in Eidos’ “Batman: Arkham Asylum,” the squeaky-voiced Joker sidekick gets a new uniform and the spotlight.
Not that we do a lot of video game coverage on Hero Complex, but this tidbit looks interesting.
Harley, previous reports of back-breaker Bane and the Joker’s orchestrations could make this an awesome game just for the storytelling experience alone!

They’re free comics, bub. In a couple of weeks, Free Comic Book Day arrives (May 2). With a new video, Hugh Jackman is doing his part to make sure everyone knows. Of course it doesn’t hurt that it is the day after his “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” movie hits the screens, but Hugh always seems so sincere!
And for those of you who want to know what you’ll be picking up when you head to your local comic book store, there is a list online of all that’ll be available, including the first-ever all-new title for a Free Comic Book Day: DC’s Blackest Night #0, a prelude to their huge Blackest Night / Green Lantern event launching later this year.
