Even although their temporary project to infiltrate a college went awry, Harley Quinn realized one thing essential — heroes and villains would make glorious lecturers. In “High School Lows” from DC’s Saved by the Belle Reve #1 (by Tim Seeley, Scott Kolins, John Kalisz, and Wes Abbott) Harley causes that as a result of individuals in her line of labor practice extensively to be taught no matter expertise they want for his or her job, they’re all specialists of their varied fields.
In retrospect, this concept is an untapped gold mine. Look at a few of the extra outstanding heroes and villains of the world. The majority of them have expertise which can be so uncommon or obscure that solely a handful of individuals on Earth know methods to correctly make the most of them. In brief, heroes and villains are all students in their very own approach and are greater than succesful to show one other particular person.
Harley Quinn could also be a harmful psychopath, however she’s had an unimaginable schooling in psychology and is a gifted gymnast. These are helpful expertise she will be able to cross right down to different individuals. Not to say she displayed a large amount of endurance and care with the kids throughout her infiltration.
A extra outstanding instance in regard to being a superb trainer is none aside from Batman. His prior coaching has supplied him with a wealth of data. He’s even had expertise mentoring youths — the Robins have all changed into effective younger males. Imagine what sort of potential could possibly be achieved if his experience was taught to a larger variety of individuals.
Likewise, individuals like Superman may doubtlessly educate Kryptonian historical past and tradition, preserving the planet with the assistance of humanity slightly than shouldering that accountability alone. Wonder Woman’s lengthy life has allowed her to expertise a number of historic occasions. She may educate individuals concerning the nature of the gods and methods to work together with them safely.
Even villains have one thing to supply. The Joker is a grasp of chemistry, he may domesticate a technology of remarkable chemists. Deathstroke is an unimaginable fighter and will educate self-defense and fight lessons along with his varied martial arts expertise. All villains are specialists of their chosen fields, however attributable to their infamy and evil deeds, only a few individuals notice this.
Of course, having information is one factor, however having the endurance to show is a problem by itself. Assuming there’s a technique to take away their immoral tendencies from their classes, in addition to any potential psychosis, then it might be ideally suited to allow them to educate. However, with the slim possibilities of eradicating darkness from anybody within the DC Universe, Harley’s concept will most probably by no means grow to be a actuality.
