DC Comics villain Harley Quinn — a mainstay on all of the sexy-women-in-comics lists and the Joker’s sometimes-girlfriend/accomplice — is now sparking a different kind of controversy.

“The U.S. version will contain smells including leather, suntan lotion, pizza and ‘what’s referred to in the story as “cannabisylocibe 7-A.’ The smell of cannabis, that is,” Bleeding Cool writes. “Being distributed to comic stores across the country.”
