You’re the only one for me Batman, you know that right? Nobody else even comes close. Not anybody.
~ Poison Ivy
I have no interest in your deals. No interest in you, in any of you, on the outside. This park, this is Gotham now… its future. Reclaimed by nature, pure without mankind’s assaults. It is a sanctuary now, and I am guardian. I will not let it be defiled. Not by anyone. Certainly not by you. Leave.
~ Poison Ivy
And there’s no way back from extinction… right?

After resorting to abuse against his wife when she did let her out one fourth dimension, Pamela ‘s mother shrugged off the black eye he gave her and went outside to garden, explaining that she liked her hobby due to flowers listening to her, which unfortunately resulted in a loophole of her church father always gaining forgiveness for his violence against her by buying flowers. This one day resulted in the violent man murdering his wife, which led him to be imprisoned for the pillow of his life, as Pamela was sent to live with a relative. In college, she designed pheromone pills to study their effects. These pills helped her significantly when the Dean, under their effects and control, decided against her expulsion and got her out of jail. After she graduated, she visited her imprisoned beget, kissing him while he was there. He by and by died the future day, with the poison used being ineffective to be found. With the help of the Dean, she late became a inquiry assistant at Wayne Enterprises. by and by, she helped a man with a plan that would allow plants to grow faster. however, the Riddler and Karl Helfern stole her plans and used them to make plants overtake Gotham City in an event that Batman called “ Zero year ”. fortunately, Batman defeated the two and started a process to remove the plants. After the city was restored, Bruce Wayne looked into Pamela ‘s design when she came to him with a plan to cut the ad division by 100 %. Her plan was to use pheromones to get clients, proving it due to her getting the interview with him due to it. however, Bruce denied her design ascribable to it being like to brainwash, promptly fired her, and explained that the company now owns her research, much to her alarm. She rushed rear to get what she could, with her main target being a serum she made from her research on vegetation. however, she was splashed with her own chemicals, giving her the ability to control plants and her pheromones, connecting her to the Green, and making her be unable to affected by viruses and poison. From that point on, she became the Eco-terrorist know as Poison Ivy .

Cycle of Life and Death

Heroes in Crisis

After the events of DC Rebirth, during which she had tried to control the minds of every live being in an try to protect the environment, Ivy began to dread about the deaths she had unintentionally caused in the past. Harley Quinn came to comfort her and told Ivy of a secret seaport where trouble superheroes go to get help in dealing with personal issues called the Sanctuary. Ivy decides to go there for guidance, where she starts to recover – entirely to get caught up in a slaughter which apparently claims her life. however, anterior to the event, Ivy used the might of The Green to give Harley Quinn a function of herself in the form of a bloom as a nominal of their sleep together. This flower would finally be obtained by Wally West ( the one responsible for the massacre ) who planted it and used the Speed Force to accelerate its growth. The flower grew to gigantic proportions and bloomed to reveal the surviving piece of Ivy had grown a fresh android consistency for herself made entirely from plant matter. She finally reunited with Harley Quinn and explained her survival as Harley ran to embrace her .

Her merely human companion seems to be Harley Quinn. It is believed that she feels for Harley, who is mistreated by The Joker. Poison Ivy is immune to toxins and uses this ability to her advantage over her enemies. Poison Ivy ‘s feelings for humanness have varied. In the past ( and in most media ), Ivy desired to exterminate all world and allow her plants to become the world newly dominant species. however, possibly due to her interactions with Harley Quinn and Catwoman, Ivy finally started to show a more humanist side and actually help those in awful need. Ivy has even tried to protect both humans and plants in some cases. Although these attempts are normally done using the improper methods ( such as controlling people ‘s minds through infect vegetables to achieve peace ).

In her downtime, She is normally focused more on manage for her plants quite than engaging in human interaction. It ‘s been hinted in some iterations that she may have a hidden infatuation towards Batman, with this side of her being seen more in the New 52. however, this attraction is nobelium longer apparent from DC Rebirth .

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.
~ Poison Ivy.
Me? I’m a genius. I can make plants behave like animals and make animals into plants. And I’m part plant as well. It doesn’t show. But I am… What am I? I am the Queen of the May, crowned in leaves, and blossom, and thorns. I am hope and beauty and truth. A symbol of growth in the dark times that are upon us… I am impossible. Woodrue killed me. You know that? I don’t know what he gave me in those college experiments. But it killed me… killed her… birthed me… What am I? I am Poison Ivy.
~ Poison Ivy.
Oh, Batman. Or rather, Bruce Wayne. What do I want? Don’t you understand? Every person holding a gun. Every army, waiting for orders. Every man with a missile, every woman with a bomb. Every superhero. Every super-villain. Every master of magic, explorer of the infinite, the smartest alive. Every human attempting to be a god. Everyone. They all love me. I feel them, understand each of them, as I understand the Green. I control them, all of them, as I control the Green. Want? No. No, no, no. You see…I don’t want anything, Batman. I already have everything.
~ Poison Ivy.
Well sometimes you need to prune back hard in order to make something flourish.
~ Poison Ivy interview tape in Arkham Asylum after a doctor mentions she almost killed everyone in Gotham City.
Actually Batman, you and I are surprisingly alike. We both strive to see evil-doers punished. But while you got your gallery of rouges, I have my grove.
~ Poison Ivy to Batman.
Poison Ivy: I wanted to do the right thing.
Batman: Perhaps. But in the wrong way.
~ Poison Ivy admitting her mistake to Batman in Batman #651 Don Kramer and Keith Champagne.
Enslaving humanity is balance.
