Bruce Wayne may be used to dating lethal (and sometimes villainous) women, but in Batman: The Curse of the White Knight, the hero seems to be building a romantic connection with his arch-rival Harlequin's ex-girlfriend.
Batman and Superman villain have the weirdest fight in DC history
Although not canonical with the rest of the DC universe, the story is a sequel to the acclaimed Batman: White Knight.
Set in a Gotham City a bit different from what Bat fans are used to reading, Batman is not entirely good, the Joker is not entirely bad, and Harlequin is much smarter than we know.

Joker is DC's new Batman and commits unhealthy act
So far, Batman and Harley are working together to prevent the Joker's "grand finale" act that will rock Gotham.
Harlequin had already helped Mr. J temporarily regain mental stability, which led to a healthy love story between them before his villainous side took control.
Now that the stakes have been raised on White Knight's Curse # 3, Batman unmasks himself in front of Harley to gain her trust, an act of intimacy that leads her to believe that the Dark Knight can be kind to her.
After unmasking themselves, Bruce and Harley develop a working partnership to unravel the mystery of the Joker's plot.
She flirts repeatedly with him, bringing up the moment when Bruce bought her a dress and notes that Batman even knew the size of her bra.

We will see the unfolding of this new – and unusual – romantic relationship between Batman and Harlequina in future editions.
Batman: The Curse of the White Knight # 3 is now on sale at US comic booths.
