Poison Ivy has been handled in a very haphazard fashion by DC Comics lately. Turning from a inventory Batman villain-with-a-point to an altruistic protagonist with the Birds Of Prey, there was an editorial and inventive battle back-and-forth between these two positions, with creators and editors dodging one editorial dictate, then clashing with the following. So Poison Ivy was both an environmental activist villain, Harley Quinn’s firm-head-on-her-leafy-shoulders girlfriend, or a smart scientist with exceptional perception trying to make the world a greater place for everybody. The Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy mini-series even actually break up her into two folks, good cop and dangerous cop Poison Ivy. Then, concurrently, the Batbooks reinvented her as Queen Ivy, trying to destroy Gotham (whereas retaining a watch out for Harley) and captured as a supply for brand spanking new medication hitting the streets of Gotham.
In the present day’s Swamp Factor #2 by Ram V and Mike Perkins hits that dichotomy on the top.
Set within the Inexperienced, it might be completely in line with Ivy nonetheless being captured and tapped for medication in Ram V’s different ebook, Catwoman – or you possibly can carry different interpretations with you if you want.
And in addition giving us two variations of Poison Ivy – whether or not separated as within the mini-series, or present as a debate inside the projected model of Ivy, that is your name because the reader. You’ll be able to have Queen Ivy…
Or not Queen Ivy. Possibly not even Poison Ivy both. Simply… Ivy.
Because of this everybody will get the Poison Ivy that they need. Or none of them do.
All of it will depend on your perspective…
