There are more great stories involving Poison Ivy putting a man under her control, like when she hypnotized Clayface to make him believe they were in love. Let's take a moment to imagine their wedding night. Now let's take a moment to honor all those who just discovered they were perverts. Moving on. The themes of a woman exerting power and control over men are potent fodder for some great storylines in Batwoman. But that's not ALL the character is about. There is also a fascinating side of Poison Ivy where she struggles with the question of whether she is still human. Well… is she? It's hard to say. Poison Ivy is apparently now on a similar power level to Swamp Thing and the Floronic Man, and those two are basically sentient Chia Pets at this point. Pamela is not there yet, and that struggle between her human and plant side has been explored wonderfully in a variety of places, most notably on the Batman: The Animated Series. In the episode " House & Garden ," Pamela seems to have turned over a new leaf (God, I hate myself for laughing at this) by going to therapy, getting married, and becoming a step-mom. In the end, though, it turns out that the entire family were human-plant hybrids created by her. But even though they were not "real" how you or I understand it, in the end, Poison Ivy still mourns their loss. Hopefully, we'll see things like that explored in more depth on Batwoman. What we almost certainly won't see, though, is Poison Ivy totally blazing it, which, according to Batman: The Widening Gyre, Pam does pretty regularly. See, this is what makes comics great: their ability to create crazy fantastical worlds of imagination because nowhere else would a pot-smoking, anti-capitalist lesbian be the villain and the billionaire with inherited wealth the hero.
