Poison Ivy is depicted as one of the world's most prominent eco-terrorists. She is obsessed with plants, botany, and environmentalism. She utilizes toxins from plants and her own bloodstream for her criminal activities, which are usually aimed at protecting the natural environment.

The first appearance of Poison Ivy, in Batman#181

Poison Ivy did not initially catch on as a character, and was not heard of again until the rise of feminism brought the need for a greater number of more independent female villains in the series. She was also used to replace the increasingly sympathetic Catwoman as a clearly antagonistic female supervillain for Batman, and then made further appearances in the Batman comic book series and in Suicide Squad. An origin story was later retconned for her. Download high resolution version (1371x2050, 364 KB) This image is the cover of an individual issue of a comic book. ...

"I would fain have been loved, not feared," murmured Beatrice, sinking down upon the ground.--"But now it matters not; I am going, father, where the evil, which thou hast striven to mingle with my being, will pass away like a dream--like the fragrance of these poisonous flowers, which will no longer taint my breath among the flowers of Eden.

Fictional character history

Pre-Crisis

Dr. Pamela Lillian Isley, a promising botanist from Seattle, is seduced by Marc LeGrande into assisting him with the theft of an Egyptian artifact containing ancient herbs. Fearing she would implicate him in the theft, he attempts to poison her with the herbs, which are deadly and untraceable. She survives this murder attempt and discovers she had acquired an immunity to all natural toxins and diseases.[2] Botany is the scientific study of plant life. ...

Post-Crisis: Life in Seattle and Gotham

Post-Crisis, her origins were revised. Pamela Isley grows up wealthy with emotionally distant parents. She later studies advanced botanical biochemistry at university with Alec Holland under Dr. Jason Woodrue. Isley, a timid, shrinking violet, is easily seduced by her professor. Woodrue injects Isley with poisons and toxins as an experiment, causing her transformation.[3] She nearly dies twice as a result from these poisonings, driving her insane. Later Woodrue flees from the authorities, leaving Pamela in the hospital for six months. Enraged at the betrayal, Pamela suffers from violent mood swings, being sweet one moment and like poison the next. When her boyfriend has a car accident after mysteriously suffering from a massive fungal overgrowth, Isley drops out of school and leaves Seattle, eventually settling in Gotham City.[4] Crisis on Infinite Earths was a 12-issue comic book limited series (identified as a 12-part maxi-series) and crossover event, produced by DC Comics in 1985 in order to simplify their fifty-year-old continuity. ...

She begins her criminal career by threatening to release her suffocating spores into the air unless the city meets her demands. The Batman, who appears in Gotham that very same year, thwarts her scheme, and she is incarcerated in Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane.[5] From this point on, she has a kind of obsession with Batman, he being the only person she could not control. Over the years, she develops plant-like superpowers, the most noticeable being a lethal toxin in her lips; she is able to literally kill with a kiss. Arkham Asylum as it appeared on Batman: The Animated Series. ...


In subsequent issues, she states that she only started a life of crime to attain sufficient funds to find a location to be alone with her plants, undisturbed by humanity. A few years later, she attempts to leave Gotham forever, escaping Arkham to settle on a desert island in the Caribbean. She transforms the barren wasteland into a second Eden, and is, for the first time in her life, happy. It is soon firebombed, however, when an American-owned corporation tests their weapons systems out on what they think is an abandoned island. Ivy returns to Gotham with a vengeance, punishing those responsible. After being willingly apprehended by Batman, she resolves that she can never leave Gotham, at least not until the world was safe for plants. From then on, she dedicates herself to the impossible mission of "purifying" Gotham. [6] West Indies redirects here. ... For other uses, see Garden of Eden (disambiguation). ...


At one point, Batman travels to Seattle to ascertain information on Pamela Isley's life before she became Poison Ivy. Here, it is stated that both of Pamela's parents are dead. When and why they died has been left undetermined.[4]


While in Arkham, Poison Ivy receives a message through flowers that someone is to help her escape. That night, two women, Holly and Eva, successfully break Ivy out and bring her back to their employer. She is less than happy to discover that it is the Floronic Man, formerly known as Dr. Jason Woodrue, her former college professor that conducted the experiments on her. The only human portion of him remaining is his head, while the rest of his body is plant-based. For the indie pop band, see Language of Flowers (band). ...

After striking a deal with him in the underground tunnels of Gotham, Ivy receives a trunk full of money in return for samples of her DNA. Woodrue intends to combine their DNA to create a "child", all while flooding the streets of Gotham with high-powered marijuana. The purpose of this is to create a world economy run on hemp and to have their offspring control it. Batman intervenes, but is overcome by Woodrue's henchwomen, Holly and Eva. However, Ivy turns on Floronic Man and lets Batman go to fight the intoxicated maniac.

At times, Ivy demonstrates positive, even maternal traits. When Gotham City is destroyed in an earthquake, rather than fight over territory like most of Batman's enemies, she holds dominion over Robinson Park and turns it into a tropical paradise.

Ivy and her orphans imprisoned in Clayface's mud.

That winter, Clayface (Basil Karlo) pays Ivy a visit, hoping to form a bargain with her. This would entail her growing fruits and vegetables, having the orphans harvest them, and him selling the produce to the highest bidder. She wants nothing to do with the plan, and she attempts to kill him with a kiss. Clayface overpowers her, however, and imprisons Ivy and the orphans for six months in a chamber under the park's lake. He feeds her salt and keeps her from the sun to weaken her. Eventually, Batman comes and discovers the imprisoned orphans and Ivy. The two agree to work together to take Karlo down. Batman battles Clayface and instructs Robin to blow up the lake bed above, allowing the rushing water to break apart the mud, effectively freeing Ivy. She fights Karlo, ensnaring him in the branches of a tree and fatally kissing him. She then proceeds to sink him down into the ground, where he becomes fertilizer for Ivy's plants. Batman, originally intending to take the orphans away from Ivy, recognizes that staying with her is what is best for them, and they remain in her care until the city is restored. Also, as part of a bargain to keep her freedom, Batman arranges it so that Ivy provides fresh produce to the starving hordes of earthquake survivors.[9] Soon after, Ivy finds Harley Quinn, who had almost been murdered by the Joker, among the debris of the earthquake and nurses her back to health.

After Gotham City is reopened to the public, the city council wants to evict her from the park and send her back to Arkham Asylum, as they are uncomfortable with the thought of a "psychotic eco-terrorist controlling the equivalent of 30-odd square blocks". They also mistakenly believe that the orphans in Ivy's care are hostages. The Gotham City Police Department threaten to spray the park with R.C. Sixty, a powerful herbicide that most certainly would have killed every living plant in the park, including Ivy, and more than likely do harm to the children. Ivy refuses to leave the park to the city and let them destroy the paradise she had created, so she chooses martyrdom. It is only after Rose, one of the orphans, is accidentally poisoned by Ivy that the hardened eco-terrorist surrenders herself to the authorities in order to save the girl's life. Batman says that, as much as she would hate to admit it, Ivy is still more human than plant.[11] Psychosis is a generic psychiatric term for a mental state often described as involving a loss of contact with reality.

Later on, she and other Gotham characters are manipulated by the Riddler and Hush. Her task is to hypnotize both Superman and Catwoman; however, she abandons Catwoman to be killed by Killer Croc, and Batman is able to keep Superman busy in a fight long enough for the Man of Steel to break out of the spell. Soon afterwards, the Riddler, who is being chased and attacked by Hush, approaches Ivy and seeks her protection. Ivy, who is angered by the manipulation, battles the Riddler physically and psychologically. She comes to physically dominate her opponent, humiliating Riddler and temporarily breaking his spirit.

Poison Ivy comes to believe that her powers are killing the children she had looked after, so she seeks Bruce Wayne's help to reverse her powers and make her a normal human being once more. Soon after, she is convinced by Hush to take another serum to restore her powers and apparently dies in the process. However, when her grave is visited shortly thereafter, it is covered with ivy, creating the impression her death would be short-lived. [13]


Shortly after, Poison Ivy appears briefly in Robinson Park, killing two corrupt cops who killed one of her orphans. Though whether this takes place before or after the aforementioned storyline is unknown. [14]


"One Year Later", Ivy is alive and active. Her control over flora has increased, referred to as being on a par with Swamp Thing or Floronic Man. She also appears to have resumed her crusade against the corporate enemies of the environment with a new fanaticism, regarding Batman no longer as a main opponent, but as a 'hindrance'.

After arriving back from a year-long absence, Batman discovers that Ivy has been feeding people including "tiresome lovers", "incompetent henchmen", and those who "returned her smile" to a giant plant which would digest the victims slowly and painfully. She refers to these murders as a "guilty pleasure". In an unprecedented event, her victims' souls merge with the plant, creating a botanical monster called Harvest, who seeks revenge upon Ivy. With the intervention of Batman, however, she is saved. Ivy is left in critical condition, and the whereabouts of Harvest are unknown. [16] One Year Later event logo. ...


In Countdown 37, the Piper and the Trickster are hiding out in a greenhouse, picking fruits and vegetables from the plants. They run into Ivy, who is talking to her plants (presumably being told that Piper and Trickster hurt them), to which she reacts by tying them up in vines with the intention of killing them.

Sexuality

Males

  • She says numerous times that she is in love with Batman and even expresses a sexual attraction for his "perfect physique". [5][6] Although these occurrences are placed close to the beginning of Batman's career, Ivy reveals that she still harbors feelings for Batman. [27]
  • At one point, she is drawn to Two-Face and attempts to seduce him. She kisses him without an intent to poison him, but is rebuffed by a Harvey Dent who is still pining after his estranged wife Gilda. [24]
  • During a gathering of female super villains, she refers to Deadshot, a former teammate from the Suicide Squad, as a "stud-muffin". [28]
  • During her time working with Hush, she can be seen considering a relationship with him when offered and grows closer to Bruce Wayne. [13]

Females

  • After manipulating Catwoman, Ivy states to her, "No man or woman can resist me." [25]
  • She forcibly kisses Supergirl (her first on-panel kiss with another woman). However, the purpose of this (storyline wise) is to determine whether Supergirl is susceptible to Ivy's poisons as Superman had been. [19]
  • Her relationship with Harley Quinn has frequently been used as a point of reference to support the theory of her lesbianism or bisexuality. This is due in part to the non-continuity pinups Bruce Timm drew of the two characters hugging, the visual innuendos in the Batman: the Animated Series episode "Harley and Ivy", and the Batgirl one-shot by Paul Dini in which Barbara Gordon asks Harley about the "close friendship" that she and Ivy share (to which Harley sarcastically responds that people say the same rumors about Batgirl and Supergirl). In the Harley and Ivy miniseries, written and drawn by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm, the two appear to be sleeping in the same bed. Also, when Harley asks if Ivy ever feels lonely inside Arkham, Ivy responds that she has everything she needs, while surrounded by plants and pictures of herself and Harley.
  • In Detective Comics #823, written by Dini, Batman discovers that Ivy has a DVD of her feeding victims to a mutated pitcher plant. It is heavily implied that Ivy receives sexual gratification from viewing this homemade snuff film; she specifically states, after Batman shows one clip from it to her and Robin, that "Natalie put on a much better show" than the male victim in the clip seen.

Plantlife

  • The character's passionate affinity with plants is sometimes suggestive of chlorophilia, a sexual attraction to plantlife. She is usually more protective of plants than humans, and in one issue of Harley and Ivy[29], she is shown displaying possible sexual arousal while being caressed by tree branches.

Creations

Creatures

Poison Ivy created several plant-creatures over the years, often used as bodyguards or to carry out her crimes:

  • Feraks: Feraks first appear during No Man's Land. The female-looking plant people show up in several issues and were last seen when Ivy and the orphans are leaving Robinson Park after No Man's Land. Their appearances vary, but the basic structure of a ferak shows an almost Amazon-like build with large, poisonous thorns jutting through, or growing from, its skin.
  • Harvest: During the "One Year Later" storyline, Ivy has been feeding people to a giant plant. Later, their souls merge with the giant plant, creating a plant creature Ivy cannot control. After a battle with Batman and Robin, who are trying to save Ivy from the revenge of this monster, Harvest disappears. [16]
  • Green Ghosts: Zombie-like plant monsters created by Ivy.[32]

Along with these monsters, Ivy also uses her spores to create henchmen in the form of Dead-Fellows, men who are fatally infected and hypnotized into doing Poison Ivy's bidding, which, at the time, is to kill Batman during the Knightfall storyline.

Other creations

  • With great skill in genetic splicing, Ivy creates plants that could be used for the good of mankind. At one instance, she creates a plant that manufactures light (with the intention of putting an end to polluting power plants), vines that are stronger than steel, and plants that exude aloes. However, these creations are part of her rehabilitation at Arkham Asylum. She soon breaks down again and withholds these miraculous plants from humanity. [27]

Physical appearance

Being a character that utilizes aesthetics to her best advantage, Poison Ivy has no shortage of different looks, ranging from variations of how she looked in her first appearance with tights and flesh tone to a naked goddess-like persona.[9] Aesthetics (or esthetics) (from the Greek word αισθητική) is a branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of beauty. ...

Her skin tone varies frequently. It has been mentioned that her blood contains chlorophyll[5] which, being a pigment, would theoretically cause her to have green skin.

Ivy is a manipulative, red-haired seductress. At her first appearance, her costume is a one-piece, strapless green bathing suit, covered with leaves. Leaves also form her bracelets, necklace and crown. She wears green high heels and yellow-green nylon stockings with leaves painted on them. These particulars changed somewhat when she re-appeared. She keeps variations of this look from the 60s to the early 90s. Not until No Man's Land did the character undergo a significant physical change, ridding herself of the nylon stockings and high heels. During this time, she is depicted as freely walking around naked. [9] To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this comics-related article or section may require cleanup. ... Nude redirects here. ...

In the DC animated universe, Poison Ivy was voice-acted by Diane Pershing. The initial character design for Poison Ivy in Batman: The Animated Series was provided by artist Lynne Naylor, who also helped design nearly all of the other female characters for the show. She drew Ivy to look distinctly different from the rest of the female characters, giving her a softer, cherub-shaped face.[37] Bruce Timm mentioned in his audio commentaries that Ivy was meant to look shorter than the other recurring female villains, that her appearance was meant to evoke the image of a "wood nymph".

When Batman reads her file, she is listed as 28 years old and standing 5'2" in height.

In the second series, she was aesthetically revamped to look more plant-like, her skin turning grayish-white. Ivy also became more humorous and seductive in personality, coinciding with her genuinely sympathetic relationship with Harley Quinn. Her fanatical mindset regarding the despoiling of plants and the ecosphere was also greatly reduced. She supposedly dies in a shipwreck in the episode "Chemistry". She apparently survives the shipwreck and returns in several spin-off series, including "Static Shock," and the Gotham Girls web-toon, in which she held a co-starring role. The character also co-starred in the three-issue comic book miniseries Harley and Ivy, and was given her swan song in the critically acclaimed Batman Adventures comic book series, which contains stories about Batman's adventures in Gotham City after a break from the Justice League.

Uma Thurman played Poison Ivy in the film Batman and Robin. In the movie, Isley is shown researching in a South American lab, where she discovers the theft of certain plant toxins from her lab. Investigating, she discovers her boss, Jason Woodrue, offering up Bane, a soldier enhanced by toxin-derived chemicals, to various bidders. Bane lashes out, and Isley is revealed in the fracas. Woodrue asks her to join him, but when she declines, he kills her by throwing her into a shelfful of chemicals. Isley rises moments later, having been infused witht he plant chemicals that she was thrown into, killing Woodrue and escaping the burning camp with Bane. Soon after, she appears in Gotham using both identities, Isley and Ivy, sparking friction between Batman and Robin- Robin proving more susceptible to her pheromones than Batman and thus becoming easily jealous- and breaks the recently-imprisoned Mister Freeze out of Arkham to form an alliance. Wanting Freeze to herself, she unplugs his wife's life-support system and claims that Batman did it, using this to encourage Freeze to begin a plan to freeze the entire Earth and then replace human life with her mutated plants, the two of them serving as the rulers. However, although she manages to capture Batman and Robin with her plants, she is defeated by the new Batgirl, her deception subsequently being revealed to Freeze in Arkham.

Poison Ivy in The Batman (voiced by Piera Coppola).

Piera Coppola currently voices Poison Ivy in the animated TV show, The Batman, complete with a new origin with stronger ties to Barbara Gordon. In this Gotham, Poison Ivy is a young environmental activist, and Barbara Gordon's friend. She convinces Barbara to help her with her "protests," which were actually scouting missions on pollutionary companies for her hired mercenary, the corporate saboteur Temblor. She uses a voice scrambler in order to recruit Tremblor to carry out her missions of ecoterrorism. During one such mission, a plant mutagen falls on her during a battle between Temblor and the Batman. She awakes in an ambulance afterward and manifests powers similar to her other incarnations, most notably psionic plant control, and an ability to exhale mind-controlling spores when she blows a kiss at her desired target. She swiftly turns her powers to furthering her ecoterrorist career, before being stopped by Batman and Barbara in her debut as Batgirl. In the season five premiere she is forced into helping Lex Luthor take control of Superman. Image File history File links PoisonI.jpg‎ Summary Jack Heart http://i94. ...
