What happens when you mix betrayal with an undying passion to save the Earth? You get the Batman’s Floral Femme Fatale.
Evil has never been so seductive as it is in the form of Poison Ivy, who uses her own natural pheromones to control whomever she wants. Her additional ability to control the floral life around her gives her an instant army against anyone who tries to stop her, as vines and plants attack whoever is foolish enough to get in her way.
The beautiful villainess is not a criminal in the traditional sense, but an ecoterrorist determined to push mankind out of the way, so plants can rule the planet she believes has long abused them. But Ivy has also proven herself compassionate time and time again, especially toward other women who have been victimized.
No two-dimensional villain, Ivy remains one of the most conflicted and complex members of Batman’s formidable rogues gallery.
