The “Martha” moment from Batman v. Superman has become such a meme that, of course, the Harley Quinn show couldn’t resist making fun of him.
This article contains SPOILERS for Harley Quinn Special: The Real Buddies of New Gotham
One of the most talked about moments in recent DC movies is when Batman didn’t kill Superman because he said “Martha”, and in a recent harley quinn comic, Bat girl decided to make fun of it.
In the universe for harley quinn show, Batgirl is still a college student. In fact, she’s enrolled in a cyber security class, the final exam for which is sponsored by Wayne Enterprises. The company is allowing students to take their final exam by hacking into one of its social media apps to test the system. Essentially, they are making students work for them for free.
In this story, which appears in Harley Quinn Special: The Real Buddies of New Gotham by Alexis Quasarano and Erica Henderson, Batgirl suspects that her friend and fellow student Noah is actually up to no good. So in addition to taking the test, she’s actually on a mission to stop him. Her hacking is actually represented by a digital version of Batgirl solving puzzles and fighting another digital version of a hacker. At the end of the test, Batgirl cracks the final code by entering the name “Martha” on a keyboard, resulting in her passing the final.
One of the great things about the harley quinn show that translates to the comic is how it tells great stories while providing meta-commentary on its characters. On its own, telling a story about Batgirl hacking into Bruce Wayne’s technology by having a digital version of herself break in as a thief is interesting enough for most fans. That kind of story by itself would have been great, even if it wasn’t coming from an animated comedy point of view. But since it is harley quinnthe story is further elevated with various details that mention various elements of geek culture that fans would recognize.
But even aside from the hilarity of this moment and its mocking of how meme the name “Martha” has become, it’s still an important detail of Bruce Wayne’s character. The fact that he uses his mother’s name as a clue shows how important his legacy is to his character. So while she’s a notable element from a character standpoint, she brings out a certain ridiculousness from a practical standpoint. After all, anyone who knows Bruce Wayne and how his mother’s death affected him so much would know that he uses her name as a password to everything. It’s just bad security. And of course that’s what harley quinn show loves to point out about Batman, thanks to Bat girl.
