-- Poison Ivy src

Pamela Lillian Isley, once a brilliant botanist, turned to a life of crime when Harvey Dent and Bruce Wayne destroyed the habitat of a rare plant in order to build Stonegate Penitentiary. She "dated" Dent, so she could get close enough to poison him. However, her plan failed, she was taken to the same prison she hated, and Dent really hated her afterwards.[1] Ivy was later transferred to Arkham Asylum.[2]

After she escaped Arkham, Poison Ivy created a chemical serum that would transform a human being into a tree. She deviced a plan to transform any citizen who had commited crimes against plants and forests and Bruce Wayne was among them. Alfred Pennyworth was attacked instead and before the transformation was completed, Batman stopped Ivy and cured all of Ivy's victims. Ivy was not found afterwards.[3]

Ivy struck up an unlikely friendship with Harley Quinn, the Joker's Moll, to the degree that some thought they were lesbians.[4] Whenever "Mr. J." was in prison, Harley would team up with "Red".





  • Wrist-Mounted Crossbow[1]
  • In a possible error by the writer, she was knocked out by gas in "Honor Among Thieves".
  • Poison Ivy's affection for her plants - or "babies" - would often distract her from her main goals, or a fight.
