Harley Quinn is a character who appears in American comics published by DC Comics. Harley Quinn introduces Ivy as Harley's best friend and later lover. Ivy has helped Harley on several adventures between her eco-terrorism concerts at Harley's new home in Coney Island. She helps Harley explain to local killers that Harley posted her own reward while sleepwalking and that trying to kill her would only lead to her death and no payday.
Harley rescued her from the mind control of a supervillain while Ivy was secretly imprisoned and used by the villain in Arkham. She helped hire the Harleys Gang and take care of Harley back to health when Captain Strong's mutant, possibly alien algae, put her in the hospital. She and Catwoman joined Harley on a road trip when Harley's uncle died and discovered that while both she and Harley are immune to most toxins, that doesn't include some secret drink made on an Indian reservation. She and Harley were invited to spend a romantic week in Bermuda in a nudist colony by Sy Borgman.
When there was a dispute over some real estate, Ivy helped turn them into protected swamps. In addition, when the Penguin attacks New York with giant killer penguins, she helps defeat him by growing a giant daisy in what her friend Eggy calls the worst Kaiju fight in history. Jim Heinrichs recently graduated from Iowa State University, where he majored in journalism and communication studies. During college, Jim found wonderful opportunities to grow through summer internships at a news station in Des Moines and at a radio station in Dublin.
Jim became enthralled with superheroes at a young age after watching an episode of the Justice League cartoon with his father. Since then, he has become a big fan of everything DC and Marvel, with an affinity for many other pop culture staples. Jim hopes to keep his love for comics strong and continue to look for great opportunities to grow, wherever he takes him. The nature of the relationship remained fluid after the first two paths crossed, the means of not having a concrete definition rather than explicitly stating a relationship status, contributes to the eccentricities of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.
Isley's inspiration can be partially derived from Rappaccini's Daughter of Rappaccini's Daughter by Nathaniel Hawthorne and is a misanthropic botanist and biochemist who is poisonous to the touch. In the comic book related to Injustice 2, one year after the fall of the Regime, poison ivy joins Ra's al Ghul and his team in order to create a better world for The Green. After rescuing Catwoman from Boneblaster, a new villain trying to make a name for herself, Poison Ivy takes Catwoman back to the Riddle House. First he punches him for not believing his claims, and then kisses him for coming to his rescue, poisoning him with his mind control toxin.
The live-action portrayal of Poison Ivy has been presented by several actresses, although fans have been calling on Megan Fox as the next contender for the role. It had the night sky, the glow of a lamppost, a pinch of white snow and the vines of Poison Ivy that entangled them both. With the help of Harley Quinn, Batman and Catwoman convince Poison Ivy to free the world from their control. In an unprecedented event, the souls of its victims merge with the plant, creating a botanical monster called Harvest, which seeks revenge on poison ivy.
The character was partly inspired by the story Rappaccini's Daughter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, about a maiden who cares for a garden of poisonous plants; becomes resistant to poisons, but becomes poisonous to others. Their affinity for each other is complex, making the affinity between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy suitable for the unlikely. Poison Ivy captures Harley Quinn, who realizes that Poison Ivy is not herself Green Arrow, Nightwing, Robin and Killer Croc as they try to figure out what is happening and stop it. In the first issue of Gotham City Sirens titled Union, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy hide in Edward Nygma's house after being incapacitated.
In Batgirl, Poison Ivy helps Batgirl save a plane and its passengers from a plant, one of Ivy's specimens, which grows uncontrollably in the cargo bay. In the Gotham City Sirens edition titled Songs of the Sirens, Poison Ivy is accused of a series of horrible crimes and is kidnapped by a renegade cop. In Batman All-Star's Ends of the Earth arc, Poison Ivy delves into Death Valley, where she investigates a barren tree to discover cures. .
