Two-Face is a recurring character on the T.V. series Harley Quinn. He is a minor antagonist in Season 1, and the secondary antagonist of Season 2. He is a supervillain and member of the Legion of Doom and Injustice League.
Two-Face wears a black and white suit similar to what he wore in Batman: The Animated Series, as well as sharing bubbly blue skin complimented with dark red lips on his deformed section of face.
Harvey Dent was an opportunistic state attorney overseeing the Arkham Asylum for much of his life until one side of his body was horribly burned, leading him to a life of crime.
"A High Bar"
Two-Face is present at The Penguin's nephew Joshua Cobblepot's bar mitzvah where he sat at a table with Scarecrow and Bane when Harley Quinn arrived at their table. However, the Joker soon arrived and drove her off, yelling at the table to laugh with him, which they reluctantly did. He later watched as Joshua Cobblepot prepared to kill Harley, only for Harley to end up escaping. The Joker then ordered the Legion of Doom members present to attack Harley. They managed to surround Harley but when Joker berated Bane, Harley questioned why they all let Joker talk to them like that, making them lower their weapons and think.
Two-Face sent out goons to take over Gotham while he continued robbing and pillaging as usual, until one day while robbing a bank his own goons turned on him, incited to strike out as independents following Harley Quinn's speeches to them. In response, Two-Face and many other former Legion of Doom members formed together into the Injustice League so that they could get their goons back and carve up New Gotham for themselves. After calling Bane stupid during the first meeting, he nonetheless declared that they needed structure and goons in order to run organized crime.
It goes supervillain, sidekicks, goons that went to Harvard, and then goons.— Two-Face
Two-Face readily agreed with the rest of the Injustice League during their first meeting that there must be a hierarchy, much to Harley's anger. After Harley smashed through their table and map, Two-Face helped The Penguin to explain that they intended each Injustice League member to control a territory of the city, unmolested by each other. Harley rejects this idea and smashes through the table, so Mr. Freeze freezes her in a block of ice. Together with the rest of the Injustice League, Two-Face lobbies to murder Harley, but Mr. Freeze convinces them all to keep her alive as a trophy, so Two-Face settles for mocking her and retiring to his allotted territory.
Harvey Dent, or Two-Face, is a crime lord who resemblances a typical mafia or mob boss in his actions. He is almost always calm under pressure, such as when Commissioner Gordon shot at him in the Gotham City police station he hardly flinched. He, like several other villains in Gotham, takes delight in essentially bullying Bane, insulting him directly or laughing at him. He believes in the existence of a "hierarchy" in the criminal underworld, with people at and above his status at the top. Like in many other interpretations of the character, he commonly decides the fate of others with the simplicity of a mere coin flip, giving his victims a decent chance of survival. He seemed to enjoy Harley's company in the season 1 episode, "A High Bar", although later on, at the beginning of season 2, he becomes rather anti-Harley similarly to his remaining colleagues. He uses intimidation and threats to get what he wants, acting on his threats without hesitation if he originally fails, as seen when he and his goons shoot of the privates of multiple Gotham police officers when they refused to comply. The only person he has ever taken orders from The Joker. He hates coconut flavored sparkling water.
Even before being supervillain, Two-Face showed to have a decent amount of negative personality to be classified as a villain since he cared more about his re-election as state attorney than public safety and ruthlessly ordered the shot at Joker even though that shot could have killed both Harley Quinn and Joker at the same time.
Unlike his counterpart in mainstream comic books, this version of Two-face doesn't seem to be bothered by multiple-personality disorder. In addition, Two-face also demonstrates high skills when it comes to manipulating others with lower intellect such as Bane to his advantage.
