Spiral Harley Cover by krazypersan Spiral Harley Cover by krazypersan
It's all done and coloured up! And as promised, here's a slew of (my imagined) information detailing her stats. Just a note, I'm not that great a writer, so don't fault me if the write-up mash-up doesn't gel too well. =P

Basic Information

Real Name: Harleen Wayward
Current Alias: Spiral Harley
Aliases: The Spinning Top, The Jumping Spider
Gender: Female
Height: 5' 7" (1.70 m)
Weight: 162 lbs (74 kg)
Eyes: White
Hair: Blonde / White


An ex-lover of MoJoker, Harleen Wayward (a.k.a Spiral Harley) is a known adversary of Dark Claw.

Before her transformation, Harleen and MoJoker were engaged to each other. It was widely known that MoJoker was a mad TV host and producer, and as is fitting of his character, he decided to hold his wedding ceremony upon a tightrope, with his wife-to-be and himself both precariously balanced upon it over a vat of mutagenic chemical. With a great need to televise such an event to get the ratings he yearned for, he siphoned all of Gothamverse's nuclear power supply and redirected every channel feed to showcase this stage to every household.

Dark Claw, noticing that the whole city was losing power, managed to deduce what was happening and proceeded to stop MoJoker. Upon arriving at the scene, he realised that the tightrope that MoJoker and Harleen were balancing on was none other than the power cable that connected to the city's power grid. With the whole city about to go critical from the power drainage, Dark Claw was left with no choice but to strategically cut the cable before it was too late. As the cord sliced cleanly into two, Dark Claw managed to grapple on and grab both MoJoker and Harleen. Angered by this disruption of his magnificent and grand scene, MoJoker decided that what was needed to restore the tension on whatever few screens that were still operating was to instill drama, and with that, MoJoker swiftly aimed for the hand holding onto Harleen, plunging her down to her supposed doom. 

However, Harleen managed to pull herself out of the vat, but the corrosive element of the chemical was slowly eating away at her now-destroyed wedding dress, forcing her to flee the scene with her modesty still intact. Harleen didn't know how long or far or even where she ran, all that she knew was that she blacked out after what felt like an eternity of running. After a period of time, Harleen came to, only to realise that she had become something both more and less than human. The revelation drove her to the brink of insanity, and with her shattered mind, she summarised from the events that Dark Claw's intervention of the wedding ceremony was solely to prevent MoJoker from having her so that he could have her himself.

With her passion renewed, Harleen sought out to attract Dark Claw and win his heart through a rampage of petite crimes, though it always ends with Dark Claw sending her to prison. This never-ending game of cat-and-mouse has only caused Harleen to desire Dark Claw even more, and with every new engagement, she loses a little bit more of her mind.

Powers and Abilities

Immunity to Mind-Controlling Effects - Harleen's broken psyche has been too damaged from her traumatic accident, rendering her maze-like mind unfathomable to even the most proficient of psychics to navigate.

Multiple Limbs: Arms - The mutagenic properties of the toxic chemical that Harleen was exposed to has bestowed her with two additional pairs of arms, of which she has complete dexterous control over.

Psychic Power - Minor Telekinesis - Spiral Harley's brain had to adapt to her new-found arms, causing her brain to go into overdrive to rewire itself. The strain of this process has given her an unexpected advantage, as she found she could levitate and control multiple objects that were just out of arms' length.

Psychic Power - Minor Teleportation - In addition to her new latent telekinetic ability, Spiral Harley is able to fold the fabric of space around her and relocate herself omnidirectionally at an approximate distance of 3 metres (10 feet) from her point of origin.


In addition to her dances and acrobatics, Harleen's repertoire consists of numerous gadgets and objects that she utilises near instantaneously and simultaneously. Known equipment are as follows:

:bulletblack: One (1) Cork Gun
:bulletblack: One (1) Air Blast Gun
:bulletblack: One (1) Water Squirt Gun
:bulletblack: One (1) 'BANG!' Flag Gun
:bulletblack: One (1) Full Set of Jacks
:bulletblack: One (1) Skipping Rope (with properties of a whip)
:bulletblack: One (1) Deck of Poker Cards (made of sharpened steel)
:bulletblack: One (1) Two-Handed Wooden Mallet (nicknamed 'Mr. Whammy')
:bulletblack: One (1) Gadget of Unknown Purpose (features four hand grips and two triggers)
:bulletblack: One (1) Pair of Handcuffs
:bulletblack: Three (3) Pairs of Bondage Mittens
:bulletblack: Six (6) Pairs of Bondage Cuffs


As graceful and synchronised as Spiral Harley is, there has been a number of instances where she mixes up the coordination of her many hands, firing off the wrong firearm and performing the wrong actions with them, though it is not known if these blunders were intentional on her part for fooling her foes.

Spiral Harley is not above name-calling, and has been known to give Dark Claw a number of imaginative labels. Some of which include:

:bulletblack: Mister Moody MacBroody
:bulletblack: Dark Bore
:bulletblack: Fuzz Face

... and if the writing of the biography is really that bad, you guys are free to reimagine some other sort of background story for her. Feel free to drop me a note if you want to add some kind of info or stats into her bio... or if there are any grammar or spelling mistakes (but not with the whole British English versus American English spelling) because I obviously didn't proofread this the first time around.

As usual, you guys can also take a look at the lineart and sketch

Okay...not seeing a problem fact, I would definitely like  to see more of this character.

two of my favorite villainesses. you nailed this. the only thing that would take this from being fantastic to perfect is putting a katana sword in her middle right empty hand, but I LOVE this.

I had the same thought as well! I was a little annoyed with myself that I didn't add a bit more of Spiral's elements into the costume. When I realised I left out a sword, I was rather hesitant on erasing and redoing the empty hand all over again to accommodate a sword. =P

The diversity of gloves looks even better in color :)
krazypersan Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks! I still feel like I should have made a cybernetic arm somewhere though...
OhmGueil Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Considering Harley, it would even be handy to add a few extra gadgets inside said arm ;)

Wow, never heard of this before, even though I've liked both characters for quite a while. It is indeed a shame they didn't do more with her.

I've also never heard of Spiral Harley until I just happen to come across Amalgam Comics by complete chance and read about Dark Claw. When I read that there was Spiral Harley, I looked her up but the web had incredibly little images of her, which was somewhat a mixed blessing since that gave me more freedom in designing her and her bio. I doubt that there will be a revival of Amalgam Comics, but I can always hope for that =P.

It's a cosplay I sure would love to see :)

I knew that the old "Multiple Limbs + Comic Character" combo would be a hit for you, especially with added colours! =P

Thanks for the fave and digital standing ovation! :)

I caught a glimpse of Spiral Harley in one of the Dark Claw comics and I so wanted them to do more with her, so it helps that you did this one.
