History

The vain and selfish daughter of well-to-do parents, Pamela Isley discovered an interest in botany as a young girl and went on to study with Dr. Jason Woodrue in college. Pamela fell in love with Woodrue who had begun performing unusual experiments on Pamela, mutating her into a force of nature with an affinity for and power over plant life.

Transformed and driven insane, this once mousy brunette was changed into a sultry redhead with a serious attitude towards anyone who would dare to threaten her beloved plants. Her altered her body chemistry pumped toxins through her veins, while her skin exuded pheromones that quite literally drove men wild. She became immune to poisons, but at the same time was poisonous to the touch.

To support her own botanical whims and extravagant lifestyle, Isley began a life of crime, gravitating to Gotham City and an obsession with the Batman creating the persona of Poison Ivy. Batman quickly caught Poison Ivy and spurned her affections, which only served to turn Poison Ivy into one of his greatest foes.

Finding herself far too often incarcerated among Gotham’s lunatic fringe in Arkham Asylum, Ivy escaped and secreted herself on a barren Caribbean island, which she transformed into a lush, verdant paradise all her own. Unfortunately, her secret garden was destroyed by mercenaries, which led Ivy on a trail of vengeance back to Gotham and Arkham.

Ivy believes in the superiority of plants of people, and is a lethal avenger of the environment. After the earthquake in Gotham, Poison Ivy became the guardian of Robinson Park.

Depending on the day, she is more or less sane, but she always cares about the plants and does her best to protect them.
