Voice of Poison Ivy, Diane Pershing: “Every time that Poison Ivy had appeared on the series before, she mainly interacted with other characters, like Batman and Commissioner Gordon, as the “sexy woman.” In this case, she was playing off another antagonist. I’m a feminist, so Paul’s script was right up my alley in the sense that I knew what I could bring to it. Ivy’s the alpha person in the relationship, and Harley is clingy, needy, and looking for approval. It was a classic combination. I remember at the time thinking that this relationship was important for Poison Ivy, because she didn’t have friends. So even when Harley screwed up, she would be like, “It’s OK.””

Warnings: A LOT OF DIFFERENT MYTHOLOGY BECAUSE IM A SUCKER FOR IT. (im trying to keep the mythology true to who they are not only with their WWE personality, but the gifted beings I think would fit them well).
A/N: Hey guys! I got the idea for this fic after re-watching THISvideo, creating the summary out of thin air, and then downloading an entire Celtic Mythology book. I know I have a few other two parters I need to finish but I’ve had this in my notes for a long time now and it needed to be shared! I hope you all enjoy!
If you could recommend any reading material for somebody who wants to get to know Poison Ivy what would you tell that person to read?
Real talk: I got to recommend a Poison Ivy story to Diane Pershing over the weekend. I know. I died.
I really like Batman: Poison Ivy as a stand alone.
It’s a quick read and goes a lot into Ivy’s morality. Good launching point, I think.
It’s funny; when Gotham City Sirens first was being published, I was so EYE-ROLLY at everything and thought characters seemed a little out of character for my liking. And then New 52 happened. Perspective is hilarious, and I do recommend the series. She’s not entirely focused on for all of it, but it’s good to see her dynamic with Selina and Harley. Plus, when they team up with the Riddler is the kind of material I want.
The Long Halloween is one of my favorite Batman stories. She’s in it for a brief few moments, but is SO ICONIC.
