I'd go with not...DC made an effort to show both Marcie and the mystery Harlequin side by side (along with Molly) in Underworld Unleashed. Although it was vague, I think it's safe to assume they are two different characters.

I wouldn't go with any of the visual references in Underworld Unleashed, as it's got other reference errors by Porter (especially in issue #1). For example, the post-Crisis Parasite turns up in his green body from his earliest appearances, when he'd been pre-Crisis purple for years by that point; Porter forgets to draw Abra Kadabra's with a scarred face, which he had both before and after UU; and so on. It's fairly clear that Porter was using outdated or inconsistejnt reference, which is understandable in a series with so many (often obscure) villains in the crowds.
