One of the most twisted minds Batman encounters on a regular basis.

The closest I got to being first.

Anyways, I'm digging what I'm seeing right now.

Just started picking up detective comics. I was pleasantly surprised.

Is Ivy no longer with the Birds? Is she a villainess again?

Penguin is a dick for outbidding Wayne.

I love Poison Ivy. That costume sucks major ass though. Did they even try? Not much thought put into long as it looks tv ready I suppose. Ya know, for the 'real world'

in issue14.
"Shock follows shock as the team learns that the plant monsters were the creation of POISON IVY!
With deadly toxins in their bloodstreams, THE BIRDS have six months to live – and they’ll be given an antidote only if they help IVY punish those who are despoiling the planet."

I thought Ivy died in Birds of Prey. Are they going to explain how she's alive and kicking again, or will that plotline just be dropped?

God I love the Penguin. He's a great character and now he's finally getting his due in comics.

And Poison Ivy's looking good.

Batman needs new villains. They should have rebooted those as well when they rebooted the comic.

I like Ivy's new costume; she doesn't have to wear a skimpy, slutty green outfit to be sexy.

I do not like her new outfit. I just don't think black is her color.

Nice, one of the best villainesses.

So happy Poison Ivy is re-interpreted as a hot ginger with regular skin. Got tired of the dead-skinned version

Poison Ivy as the main villian in Batman 4 (Dark Victory)
