Before you asnwer and accuse me of blasphemy:
1) Huge DC comics fan
2) Huge fan of Batman TAS-never understood the hype
3) Played all the Arkham games-never understood the hype
4) If Harely Quinn is the only selling point of the new Suicide Squad movie it makes me feel "meh" about it
Conclusion: because Harely Quinn has been flooded and present in a lot of Batman lore, we can apply the most basic rule of encono mics to her and conclude that the more present she is in everything, the less value she has. MY OPINION
Hell, I wanted a break from Bats and see a new superman series launch, but nooooooo, WB just had to put them in a mediocre fight scene

I'm not particularly a DC fan, Harley is really the only character I actively attempt to keep up with :P I like her development. I like that she's this batshit character with a soft spot inside, like how she's soft towards animals and how she's sympathetic towards pregnant women (like how she refuses to fight Black Canary when she realises she's pregnant and instead sits down and has a heart to heart and talks about her own daughter and how much she loves her) and how she might be super damaged but she knows now that the Joker is no good for her. She was abused but she grew stronger and she left the Joker behind, beaten to a pulp in a jail cell because she knew that she deserved better.
I think that she's probably a character that female readers identify more with than the male readers because of the femininity that shines through and the times where she's very kind hearted and we feel sympathetic to her. Harley's development definitely is a lot about her growing as a woman which I think is one of the reasons I like her so much.0

She's like an EVIL manic pixie dream girl. Catwoman is just... Kinda boring. Harley has all the one liners, the amazing voice work of Arleen Sorkin, and can kick butt in a fight when she needs to. Just like Katpiss Neverclean/KaTris "Richard" Prior/Bella gave girls someone to identify with (an average girl who doesn't think she fits in and lusts after a mysterious older dude), Harley has tapped into the sense of mischief.
I think she's been diluted as a result of all those Facebook memes but you can never deny the greatness of the Harley's Holiday episode, nor the kazoo solo (which Sorkin improvised):
