Harley Quinn's Got A Crush On The DC Hero [SPOILER] | Screen Rant

Harley Quinn has been in some of the most notable romances in all of DC Comics. Her most famous relationship with the Joker was toxic and abusive. However, she later found happiness with the supervillain Poison Ivy. But, now Harley's got a new crush and it's a surprising hero: Booster Gold.

Harley's meta-adventures have seen her team up with Booster Gold in order to investigate the death of one of her friends, Alicia. In Harley Quinn #72 by Sam Humphries, Abel, Hi-Fi, and Dave Sharpe, Booster and Harley continue to bond, even briefly holding hands before she pushes them both off a tall building. The issue than flashes forward to Harley and Booster doing some investigating, which brings them even closer together.

Harley and Booster share a number of funny moments as he convinces her to let him tag along in her investigation. She calls him "a big slobbery golden retriever," and Booster calls the duo "Goldie Quinn," which Harley rejects. The two do some detective work at a fancy house party, where they make up a needlessly complicated backstory to explain their presence to guests, that includes Booster's dad not approving of their faux-engagement because "I'm too good for him," and his mom "can't keep her hands off" Harley. Booster jokingly suggests they have a family get-together to cut the sexual tension.

After discovering an Apokoliptan storage unit, they're tipped off to a construction site in North Hollywood. It's there Harley connects clues over the land developer Jonathan Wittleston and his potential involvement with super nazis, the Apokoliptan tech, and Alicia's murder. Booster suggests they call in the Justice League, but Harley wants to solve the case herself. When Booster tells Harley she's got a death wish, she blows up on him telling her she wants to murder Wittleson. Booster says if he can't stop her, she's on her own. "What happened ta th'big slobbery Booster golden retriever, you told me ya cared!" Booster responds, "that's why I'm not going help you try to kill yourself!"

Booster tells Harley he cares about her and the two nearly share a kiss, before Booster tells her "I can't do it," as he flies away. Once he's gone, Harley slowly realizes she might have a crush on him, saying "Aw no, what the frick! Do I have a crush on Booster Gold?! Ew!" While the romance never blossomed, the surprise pairing worked out really well. Harley developing a crush on one of DC's goofiest heroes is hilarious, but surprisingly touching. Harley Quinn and Booster Gold would have made an interesting couple.

Godzilla: Why Rodan Chose Ghidorah's Side In King Of The Monsters

King of the Monsters put Rodan on Ghidorah's side, instead of teaming him up with his old ally, Godzilla. Here's why this decision was made.

Godzilla: Why Rodan Chose Ghidorah's Side In King Of The Monsters

In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Rodan fought on Ghidorah's side and opposed Godzilla and Mothra - why? Traditionally, Rodan is portrayed as one of Godzilla's most reliable allies, but the MonsterVerse has so far sidestepped this relationship. Rodan doesn't even get to meet Godzilla until the movie's final scene, when all four Titans battle each other in Boston.

In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the winged Titan emerges from his volcano after being awakened by the movie's villains. Shortly afterward, Rodan finds himself in conflict with King Ghidorah. The two engage in a fierce but brief struggle, with Ghidorah emerging victorious. After the fight, Rodan is seen with Ghidorah, who he has now accepted as the King of the Monsters - contrary to the Orca's call. Later, Rodan helps his new master by stopping Mothra from helping Godzilla. Rodan is badly wounded by Mothra, but he survives the fight to witness Ghidorah's defeat at the hands of Godzilla. Rodan, who is soon joined by Behemoth, Scylla, Methuselah, and the third M.U.T.O., bows down to Godzilla, who has replaced "The False King" as the alpha of the Titans.

So why did the movie decide to team Rodan with Ghidorah? Godzilla: King of the Monsters director Mike Dougherty explained during a watch party that having Rodan side with Godzilla was actually their original plan. This idea was abandoned, however, because it was decided that having Godzilla, Rodan, and Mothra gang up on Ghidorah in a 3-on-1 match-up would have been unfair. Also, Doughterty pointed out that this fight has been done before, referring to Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster from 1964, the film that introduced Ghidorah and also the first movie in which Godzilla and Rodan shared the screen. In this movie, Mothra shamed Godzilla and Rodan into helping her drive off Ghidorah.

Rodan also fought alongside Godzilla in Invasion of Astro-Monster, Destroy All Monsters, and he used his life essence to bring Godzilla back from the brink of death in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II. So over the years, Godzilla and Rodan have evolved into Toho's most iconic giant monster team-up. It's worth noting that before King of the Monsters, Rodan had never willingly helped the main villain.  The only time he wasn't Godzilla's ally was in Godzilla: Final Wars, when he was mind-controlled by aliens.

It was disappointing that their relationship from the classic Toho movies wasn't adapted for Rodan's MonsterVerse debut. It certainly would have been fun to see Rodan swoop in and dive-bomb Ghidorah again, but at the same time, it's true that Rodan fighting Ghidorah would have tipped the scales too much in Godzilla's favor, making the film's final showdown grossly unfair. With Ghidorah being left at a severe disadvantage, the fight would have been understandably less exciting.

As much as fans would love to have seen Godzilla and Rodan fight on the same side, it was simply not to be. But, that doesn't mean it won't happen. Unlike Ghidorah and Mothra, Rodan survived the movie. The film's ending set up a future team-up between the two. That means that if  - or some other MonsterVerse film - he could finally work with Godzilla to defeat the enemy.
