Quote1.png Life endures. It adjusts and grows stronger. The weeds you try to kill become super-weeds, immune to your poison. And so you increase your toxins and poison the world in a cycle of madness. I call it forth, the power of the plants, even from the terminator seeds that should not grow. I am the guardian of the Green. I am Poison Ivy. Quote2.png

Poison Ivy src

Poison Ivy, real mention Dr. Pamela Isley, is an eco-terrorist with the ability to control all implant liveliness. Having been turned into a plant/human hybrid from an experiment gone incorrect, Poison Ivy struggles with her world and her insanity to protect plants at all costs. Because of this, she has frequently acted as an adversary of Batman in Gotham City.

early life

Pamela Isley was born with a skin condition – an aversion to sunlight. Though the doctor had prescribed her a lotion to protect her, little Pamela ‘s abusive forefather had forbidden her from going outdoor at all. On one occasion, when her mother allowed her to play outside, he had angrily punched her in the confront, giving her a black eye. As if nothing had happened, Pamela ‘s mother stepped outside and began gardening. Seeing her daughter there, she explained that she liked gardening because the flowers listen to her, and sometimes, if she stays very quiet, they speak back to her. When Pamela had asked about the black center, her mother had assured her it was nothing to worry about. The abuse continued. Every time he hit her, Pamela ‘s church father bought his wife ‘s forgiveness with flowers, and her garden would grow. That was how Pamela learned that flowers could manipulate people. however, she besides learned of human cruelty when her don murdered her mother in cold blood, having had adequate of her disobedience to him. He buried his immediately ex-wife under her own garden—her pulp decay and now feeding the identical flowers she planted—before being arrested by the police. At the test, he was found guilty of domestic ferocity and mangle, and sentenced to life in prison. Pamela was then sent to live with a relative. In college Pamela dated the budding Eco-terrorist Bella Garten, and created graphic designer drugs, doling pheromone pills out in ordain to study their effects. The University learned of her activities, and she was expelled and put in jail pending a criminal indictment. however, she had already used her pills to get the Dean under her ovolo. Charges were dropped, and she graduated Summa Cum Laude. After graduating, Pamela visited her church father in prison for the foremost time since the mangle of her mother. He stubbornly sat in silence, precisely staring at her and waiting for her to make the beginning move. After a time, she decided to do what made the most sense. She leapt up out of her induct and kissed him on the lips. By the adjacent good morning, he was dead, and the toxin used to kill him was untraceable. [ 5 ] The Dean secured Pamela an internship at Wayne Enterprises straight out of College at their R & D locate just after the amalgamation with Kane Chemical. She helped to develop pharmaceuticals and cosmetic applications, but she had greater aspirations. [ 6 ] [ 5 ] Pamela became a research adjunct at Wayne Enterprises, helping a man named Dr. Paji create a project that would allow plants to grow at an incredibly advanced rate. During the event that would be dubbed “ Zero Year “ by Bruce Wayne, a terrorist known as the Riddler partnered with a scientist named Dr. Karl Helfern to steal Pamela ‘s experiment. [ 7 ] The Riddler turned off the exponent in Gotham City, turning the city into a ferocious cesspool. The villain then spread Pamela ‘s project throughout the city, turning the once proud and advanced city of Gotham into a literal urban jungle because of the incredible plant increase. [ 8 ] however, both the Riddler and Hellfern were defeated by the newfangled hero known as the Batman, and Gotham City began a rebuilding summons, getting rid of all the plants that Pamela ‘s stolen research had caused. [ 9 ]

Becoming Poison Ivy

With the city back to normal, Bruce Wayne came to look in on Pamela ‘s division when she took the opportunity to present him with a business project that would cut his advertising class by 100 %. In fact, she had used pheromones to get the meet with him, and this was her proof that Wayne Enterprises could use pheromones to target clients, and modify their behavior to the party ‘s benefit. Wayne refused her pitch on the grounds that it amounted to brainwashing, and removed loose choice from the equation. ethically opposed to her idea, Bruce Wayne fired her on the spot, warning that his company owned any inquiry she had done, so she would not be able to pitch her theme elsewhere. angrily, she had rushed past security to steal what she could of her exploit binding, specifically a plant serum that she had made from all of her cognition in botanical research, which she alone knew how to make. [ 6 ] unfortunately, in the work, she was doused with her own chemicals. The chemicals changed her, making her immune to poisons and viruses, giving her command over all plant life sentence, and connecting her inexorably to The Green vitamin a well as giving her unconditioned dominance of pheromones. [ 6 ] She became something of an eco-terrorist, using her abilities to strike back at those who struck out at the Green. [ 5 ] Ivy still lived in Gotham City, but had been asked by Black Canary to join the Birds of Prey, despite her inclination toward criminal action. Ivy accepted, but her modern teammates Starling and Katana were n’t very happy about it. [ 10 ] They grew to trust her, begrudgingly, while investigating a mind-controlling condemnable called Choke, who was using unsuspecting people as tie agents, and implanting them with bombs triggered by mnemonic queues. After a battle with one of the Court of Owls ‘ Talons, Ivy sacrificed her health in order to trap him within the refrigerate car of a train, knowing that merely austere cold could stop him. [ 11 ] She had made Black Canary promise to take her to the Amazon Basin, should she always become hurt, and following the Talon ‘s capture, the Birds of Prey made dependable on that promise, but were attacked by plant-monsters when they arrived. As it turned out, Ivy had betrayed them, having secretly poisoned them, and intended to coerce them into helping her in her eco-terrorist crusades against polluting corporations. [ 12 ] When it became clear that Batman could cure their poison, Katana near-fatally injured Ivy, resulting in her being dropped from the team. [ 13 ]

Criminal Career

A free-agent in Gotham, Ivy broke Clayface out of Arkham Asylum, manipulating him into becoming her conserve – and therefore her bodyguard. [ 14 ] Batman intervened for her sake, chiefly because the locations she attacked were the Penguin ‘s properties, and he had put a amplitude on her head. unfortunately, Ivy was captured by Penguin ‘s men, and buried active. however, she survived long enough for Penguin ‘s over-ambitious second-in-command Ogilvy to rescue her as separate of his plan to take over Penguin ‘s commercial enterprise, since his foreman had gone missing thanks to the fall of the Joker. [ 15 ] She repaid her debt to him by supplying him with a means to chemically enhance himself enough to become a pit for the Batman, [ 16 ] which ended up giving his skin a consistency akin to that of bark. [ 17 ] When the Crime Syndicate took over the worldly concern and apparently killed the Justice League, the villains of Gotham took rule over it. Poison Ivy, among them, took command of a section of Gotham for herself, primarily being concerned with her plants. [ 18 ] When Bane returned to Gotham in order to claim it for himself, Ivy joined Scarecrow ‘s army of Arkhamites to combat Bane ‘s battalion of prisoners from Blackgate Penitentiary in what would late be named “ the Arkham War “. [ 19 ] Participating in several battles against the Bane ‘s army, Scarecrow finally pulled out all the stops in order to win the city by secretly drugging all the Arkhamites, including Isley, with a derivative of Bane ‘s precious Venom, but, despite their temp super force, the Arkhamites were still defeated by Bane, who declared himself the winner of the Arkham War. [ 20 ] After the fall of the Crime Syndicate and the return of the Justice League, Poison Ivy began operating with the Calabrese crime kin, being led by her friend Selina Kyle. [ 21 ] Some time subsequently, Ivy began working for the Gotham Botanical Gardens, working under her real identity Dr. Pamela Isley. She became intrigue with the mind of combining human and plant DNA, and used the resources at the gardens to develop her inquiry. [ 22 ] She soon succeeded in merging genetic information from both humans and plants, and began growing human/plant hybrids that she referred to as “ sporelings ”. Ivy successfully delivered her two sporelings in secret, naming them Rose and Hazel. however, she became implicated that person was mindful of her research after her colleagues Luisa Cruz and Albertus Eric Grimley were murdered. [ 23 ] Ivy decided she needed to retrieve her research from the botanic gardens to prevent whoever was onto her from gaining access to it. Ivy recruited Catwoman to help her get inside the build undetected, [ 24 ] and inside a lab she discovered that person had stolen her research and used it to develop their own sporelings. Ivy found a live hybrid that she named Thorn. In fear, Thorn had used her singular ability to transmute flesh into plant material to kill the scientists that experimented on her. Ivy discovered another colleague, Victor Lee, dying and realized he had been working against her and was creditworthy for the murders of her colleagues. She destroyed the facility and rescued Thorn, taking her back to her apartment to join Rose and Hazel. [ 25 ]

Ivy ‘s “ babies ” developed quickly and reached adolescence in a matter of months, and Ivy became increasingly protective of them. She was attacked by a animal that called itself the Grim, and was shocked to discover the creature was her colleague Albertus Grimley, who was thought to have been murdered. [ 26 ] Grimley told Ivy that he and Victor Lee had been obsessed with the idea of immortality and believed the answer was hidden in botany. Grimley was dying of cancer and was determined to become immortal before he died, and when he happened upon Ivy ‘s inquiry he saw a potential to exploit it. He faked his end, then grew his own hybrids and used their stem cells to replenish his body, transforming himself into a ghastly creature in the summons. The cancer continued to return, however, and after Ivy destroyed his facility he needed raw sporelings to use, leading him to attack Ivy and her children. They fought the Grim, but his electric resistance to their plant-based powers made him a difficult foe. Swamp Thing heard Ivy ‘s calls through the Green, and together they managed to kill the Grim. Wanting to see the world for themselves, Rose, Hazel and Thorn left Gotham City, leaving Ivy alone. [ 27 ] Through her dominance over all of Earth ‘s plant life, Poison Ivy was able to manipulate vegetation on a global scale, leaving the entire satellite ‘s population, including its metahumans, implemental to her. She hoped that with her steering, humanity would be forced to become a peaceful species and live in harmony with nature, efficaciously saving the universe from its inevitable destruction at the hands of humans. When Batman realized what was going on, he was able to resist Ivy ‘s mind control long enough to inject himself and Catwoman with a special plant-based means which counteracted Ivy ‘s toxins, leaving the couple the alone people in the world unaffected. [ 28 ] Ivy ‘s mission proved successful ; humanity was last living in peace and harmony, albeit without their release will. She used metahumans such as Superman and Wonder Woman to monitor Bruce and Selina to ensure they did not come in the way of her plans. Batman theorized that Ivy ‘s see was rooted in the vegetation that people had been eating, and attempted to contact a boy named Johnny Suntres, who had a rare allergy to all plant-based foods, believing he excessively may be unaffected. Ivy ensured that Batman would not get to him and had Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern restrain him and Catwoman. While he was tied, Batman taunted Ivy, forcing her to question the morality of what she had done. In anger, Ivy forced Superman to punch Batman, killing him. She was regretful over taking Batman ‘s life and use individuals she was controlling, such as magicians, doctors and surgeons, to restore him second to liveliness. She besides revealed to Catwoman that she regretted taking human lives in the past, particularly those she killed during the War of Jokes and Riddles. Nonetheless, Ivy remained determined to succeed with her design to save the planet and humanness. [ 29 ] Batman awoke in hospital under the care of Harley Quinn. Aware of Ivy ‘s genuine love and caution for Harley, Batman believed that Ivy ‘s control over her was n’t vitamin a potent as that of the rest of humanness, and he managed to get through to Harley, relinquishing her of Ivy ‘s take care control. Batman drove Harley to the base Ivy had created in the Gotham Park, and Harley comforted the emotionally distressed Ivy. Upon learn of Ivy ‘s regret over killing the men during the War of Jokes and Riddles, Batman informed Ivy that she was n’t creditworthy for their deaths ; in accuracy, the Riddler killed them and placed the incrimination upon her. Harley managed to talk Ivy into restoring humanity ‘s release will, putting an end to the passive utopia she had created, but Harley assured Ivy that one day she would succeed in her goal of saving the planet. [ 30 ] At Harley ‘s request, Ivy checked in to the superhero genial health facility known as Sanctuary. Ivy was apparently one of the many killed during a slaughter at Sanctuary. [ 31 ] She was subsequently revived by Wally West from the green by using the Speed Force on a rose that was a depart of Ivy given to Harley .
