Not so long ago, comic book fans eagerly awaited the arrival of The boys‘Herogasm’ episode on Prime Video. Now there’s a new superhero orgy on the scene that’s found itself in direct competition with The boys‘ infamous episode, and it happened in the third season of HBO Max’s harley quinn animated series. The scenes in question came in the adult-oriented series as fan-favorite Court of Owls staged her own mature performance and fans of the show were quick to say she delivered everything Herogasm did and more. .
Sure, harley quinn is something of an anomaly in the world of comic-related projects, delivering a very mature show when most of its peers are strictly PG-13. However, for the most part, it’s what made the series a hit with fans who have been clamoring for more superhero movies and series to deliver the kind of mature content the source material is known for. It’s true that many major DC and Marvel comic book series aren’t aimed at kids, and so it’s no surprise that projects encompassing what are generally highly regarded by aficionados of the genre.
The fourth episode of harley quinnThe third season of is titled “A Thief, A Mole, An Orgy” and when it came to the last of the three, the show didn’t hold back. In fact, in addition to obtaining an obvious comparison with The boys, he also reignited the debate about a risque scene involving Batman and Catwoman that was not allowed to proceed. Showrunner Justin Halpern previously explained:
“A perfect example of that is in this third season of ‘Harley’ [when] we had a moment where Batman was bumping into Catwoman and DC was like, ‘You can’t do this. You absolutely cannot do that. They’re like, ‘Heroes don’t do that.’ So we said, “Are you saying that heroes are just selfish lovers? They were like, ‘No, we’re just selling mainstream toys for heroes. It’s hard to sell a toy if Batman also bumps into someone.'”
It looks like they were allowed to get away with plenty of other things, and fans were clearly loving the risque episodes as they shared their opinions on Twitter.
Warner Bros. tried to limit Harley Quinn’s excessive swearing

However, writer Tom Hyndman recently revealed that Warner Bros. had at one point attempted to limit the language in the series, but to no avail.
“Warner Animation once gave us a ‘f*ck account’ because we were using too much f*ck and we got pissed off and then watched the pilot again and were like, ‘wow, we’re really using a lot. f*ck.”
