In the modern comics, Harley and Ivy have been together for a while and it is so great to see the two become life long partners. The two have been a fan favorite OTP. We love to see a liberated Harley, far way from The Joker and his abuse. She set out on her own to create a life for herself, one where she isn’t defined by her relationship but now, where she can truly be herself, have actual friends and a loving relationship.

Though their relationship has had some push back, love truly conquered all. The series writer Tom Taylor confirmed that their love has led them to martial bliss. This moment is not only amazing for the characters but for representation as well. To see two, strong, capable women in love and written tastefully is beautiful to see. And we need more of it! So, the gays have truly truly won, folks. We love to see it!
