Since her break-out role inThe Wolf of Wall Street,Margot Robbie has taken Hollywood by storm. Undeniably one of the most attractive women in film, she takes on the role ofHarley Quinn in this weekend'sSuicide Squad movie, the latest installment in theDC Extended Universe film franchise. As the most popular and marketable character traditionally associated with DC Comics' most dangerous black ops unit, Harley Quinn's character could be to the DCEU what the antihero Deadpool has become to the Marvel Comics-basedX-Men film series.

Taking advantage of all theSuicide Squadmovie publicity,DC Comics decided to release new comic book series for both Harley Quinn and Task Force X. While Suicide Squad: Rebirthtells the story of howColonel Rick Flagbecame the leader of the Suicide Squad,Harley Quinn: Rebirth takes a closer look at the life of Gotham City's most seductive villain.

Harley Quinn: Rebirth #1

For anyone unfamiliar with Harley Quinn,Rebirth #1 catches you up to speed in one issue.

The story begins by Harley getting her flirt on withPoison Ivy at a spa. From there, she heads to a party at Coney Island that was essentially a walk down memory lane. Quinn explains how she went undercover atArkham Asylum and fell in love with The Joker. Her buddy Big Tony Delfini was on hand with a beaver, rooster and wiener dog in tow. Her "freakfest" friends include Frankie & Johnnie, Queenie, Eggy and Goat Boy.

She introduces the readers to herGang of Harleys and to herSkate Club Sisters. And, of course, her dear friendPower Girl.

After the homecoming party, she is visited by Deadpool-spoofRed Tool and their friend Jimm Salabim, a former genie-in-a-bottle forced to adapt to life as a New Yorker. Red Tool and Tony are at Quinn's side as they fight off a swarm of humans (and a few animals) that have been turned tozombies after eating hot dogs that were accidentally made with the remains of a dead alien who had recently crash-landed in Oklahoma.

Lady Killer #1

Not unlike Harley Quinn,Josie Schuller ofLady Killeris an attractive woman with a penchant for murder. Dark Horse Comics released the first five-issueLady Killer series in 2015. It was met with such success that they brought back the character whomight best be described as a cross betweena Stepford wife and a sociopath. The new five-part series begins with Schuller trying to sell goods to other housewives at a Tupperware party.

When she is left alone with the two rude, ungrateful hosts, shemurders them both with a hammer and an electric bread knife. As the comic book ends, she returns home to her loving (and unsuspecting) husband and family.

Suicide Squad movie

While there are no plans to adaptLady Killerfor the silver screen, Harley Quinn can be seen in this weekend'sSuicide Squad film.

With Kiersey Clemons already pegged to play Iris West in 2018's The Flash, Margo Robbie officially has competition for being the most attractive female in the DCEU.While dedicated DC fans are likely to see a very late Thursday showing, Suicide Squadofficially hits theaters nationwide on August 5.
