  • Poison Ivy (A.K.A "Dr. Pamela Lillian Isley") is the former eco-terrorist of Gotham City and former enemy of Batman. She is the queen of the Edenia and the wife of Poison Oak.


    Isley was raised by a wealthy and yet distant parents in Seattle, Washington. She excelled in college within the fields of both botany and toxicology. By this time, Isley was dating a fine young man named Oakland Harrison who too excelled in the same field, however wasn't as naïve as she was in the subject.

    Being naïve, her professor Dr. Jason Woodrue seduced her and persuaded her into being his test subject for his experiments. According to Ivy, the experiments were painful and torturous. After being nearly killed by Woodrue, her boyfriend found her and brought her to the hospital and Woodrue escaped. Isley remained in the hospital for 6 months and her boyfriend kissed her goodbye before he left.

    6 Months LaterEdit

    After being released from the hospital, Isley eventually found herself with green skin, eyes and endowed with various floral like powers and abilities. Enraged by a man, Isley suffered from violent mood swings which caused a later boyfriend to die of fungus exploding in his lungs. Eventually, Isley left Seattle and settled down in Gotham City.

    Gotham CityEdit

    Eventually arriving in her new home, Isley's first act was threatening to release her lethal suffocating spores into the air of the city unless her demands were met. This is where she went from Pamela Isley to her new alias of Poison Ivy. At the same time she appeared, Batman too appeared the same year who stopped her and purchased her a one way ticket to Arkham Asylum.

    Ivy's Second EdenEdit

    After her arrival, Ivy decided to leave Gotham and escaped Arkham in order to live on a desert island in the Caribbean. She molded the island into a lush tropical paradise. She stated that she for the first time in her life, was happy. Her happiness was short lived when an American corporation tested new weapons on the island and as a result, firebombed her whole island.

    Enraged by this, Ivy returned to American in hopes of finding the ones responsible. This crusade was then stopped by Batman who sent her back to Arkham where she realized that she would never really leave Gotham.

    Life of CrimeEdit

    Ivy would eventually escape custody and join up factions like the Injustice Gang and even the Secret Society of Supervillians. Ivy also became a very good friend with the Joker's on-again, off-again girlfriend Harley Quinn. She not only made Quinn immune to poisons, but also boosted her self confidence greatly.

    Return of an Old FlameEdit

    Even when her life as a criminal felt like it was going well, Ivy felt very lonely. Her loneliness was short lived when she received a visit from her old boyfriend Oakland. She didn't realize it was him until she told him who it was, which shocked her due to the fact that he changed into a person much like her. Happy to see him, Ivy was surprised when he kissed her and was totally fine and yet very surprised.

    Eventually though, Oakland came out with "Pamela Lillian Isley, will you marry me?". Shocked at his proposal, he also mentioned that he was the ruler of a kingdom he named Edenia and he was king. He said to her "Although I'm king, I'm very lonely. I wanted to come and find you so that you could not only make you happy, but for me to make you happy as my queen.". Happy to hearing this from her old flame, Ivy accepted his offer and therefore decided to leave Gotham with her man.

    Before leaving, the couple was stopped by Batman however he became ensnared with vines and thorns caused by Oak. This gave them enough time to escape and left for the docks. The GCPD however were on their tail. They eventually made it to the docks where they got on his boat and their course was set to the island of Edenia. Of course this led to them being caught up by Hybrid who Ivy never really met before. Hybrid was representing his alter ego in offering them to be the leaders of the Eco-Friendly branch at Bromley Industries and even agreed to pardon her and her fiancé from any crimes that she had committed in the past. Ivy and her future husband then agreed and signed a contract that he had on him.

    Eventually Hybrid turned their boat around and verified this with both Batman and the GCPD. Afterwards, Ivy and her new love married on the island of Edenia where she lives to this very day as not only king and queen, but also husband and wife.
