Poison Ivy (2022)


Pamela Isley has been a lot of things in her life: a living god, a super-villain, an activist, a scientist, and dead. In a new body that she didn’t ask for and with a renewed sense of purpose, Ivy leaves Gotham and sets out to complete her greatest work: a gift to the world that will heal the damage dealt to it…by ending humanity.

But plans have a tendency of changing, and Ivy realizes life isn’t just black-and-white and all humans aren’t evil-except for the ones destroying the Earth with corporate greed. And Ivy will make. Them. Pay.

“G. Willow Wilson, Marcio Takara, Arif Prianto, and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou have made an intriguing character story that succeeds at nearly every level.” (Source: AIPT)

“Ivy’s actions are extremist and inexcusable, but Wilson writes her with enough nuance that readers can still feel bad for her. In addition, Wilson writes a self-aware Ivy; she knows she’s evil. But despite all of this, Ivy still believes that her choices are for the greater good.” (Source: But Why Tho)

“Intriguing, depressing, and terrifying, this take on Poison Ivy will definitely grow on you.” (Source: Multiversity Comics)
