This place isn't a prison. There's no release date. No parole. Some sweaty, over-weight creep asks you to go down on him to prove you're fit to mingle with society... When you're scared enough - or hurt enough - to be quiet, to be "good"... Then they'll let you out. Or maybe they won't. And nobody gives a damn. You want me to help you?
~ Poison Ivy


Poison Ivy is an enemy of Batman. She is depicted as one of the world's most prominent eco-terrorists. She is obsessed with plants, botany, and environmentalism.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Pheromones: Ivy's body produces pheromones that make people susceptible to mind control around her, although people with a resistance to mind-control and strong will like Batman are usually capable of resisting. She was even once able to control Superman with the help of kryptonite, though considering he has resisted mind control from insanely more powerful beings, this is most likely an outlier.
  • Toxins: Often these toxins are secreted from her lips and administered in her preferred way, a poisonous kiss, usually after professing false love or affection for her victim. They come in a number of varieties, from mind-controlling drugs, high level hallucinogens and Paralysis to instantly fatal toxins. These toxins are all around her body, to the point she can kill people just by touching them. They are even able to create hallucinations to her foes.
