Poison Ivy

Poison Ivy (Dr. Pamela Lillian Isley) was created by Robert Kanigher and Sheldon Moldoff and made her debut in Batman #181 (June 1966). An occasional romantic interest of Batman, she has teamed up frequently with fellow anti-heroes Catwoman and Harley Quinn (and sometimes as Quinn’s girlfriend). Poison Ivy is a Gotham City botanist and biochemist who possesses a supernatural control over plant life. She was originally characterized as a supervillain, but was later periodically depicted as an antiheroine or a hero, often doing the wrong things for the right reasons. Ivy is empowered by the interplanetary force known as the Green. She identifies herself as nature’s daughter and the rightful ruler of the world. She is one of Batman’s most enduring enemies, belonging to the collective of adversaries who make up Batman’s rogues gallery.
