None of this issue makes a lot of sense, but neither does Injustice, for the most part. Harley’s analysis of herself is merely an excuse to use her, due to her popularity, and fill as many panels with Quinn as possible. The Flash visiting the Rogues to pay his respects could be a strong moment, only readers aren’t given any backstory as to the relationship Flash has with the Rogues in this universe, so that leaves those interested to assume it’s equivalent to what has occurred in the DC Universe proper, where the Flash definitely wouldn’t respect anything the Rogues had done, including attempting to kill him. The fight between Harley and Shazam won’t go anywhere, green pill or not, as it’s already set in video game stone what’s going to occur. Don’t believe me? Check issue #22 and come back here for a brief history on Captain Marvel, the hero erroneously labelled as Shazam, and for all the wrong reasons.
