I don’t think comics should shy away from abuse stories because they aren’t romanticizing. But I find it really problematic when comic writers/artists like to have Harley abuse the Joker in AU’s because they think it makes her a strong female. It honestly just makes her look just as bad as the Joker and shows how little our society cares about male victims of abuse. I don’t hate Harley one bit and the main version of her and especially the Injustice versions really show how long she’s come and that she’s learned from her mistakes and that’s why she’s strong. She doesn’t need to abuse the Joker to be strong, she can be strong by learning from her mistakes and standing up for herself.
