    Beware of Poison Ivy!, The Perfect Crime - Slightly Imperfect! last edited by ScottyHawkeye on 07/13/23 01:12PM View full history

    The first appearance of Poison Ivy in “Beware of Poison Ivy!” Poison Ivy challenges the reigning female villains in Gotham City. Batman and Robin are on the move to stop her, but they’re both at risk of falling victim to her charms! *Content scan quality may vary.

    This comic is a big key issue that features the first appearance of Poison Ivy.

    Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson are attending a Pop-Art show that features pieces of the top 3 (Dragon Fly, Silken Spider, and Tiger Moth) female criminals in Gotham City. Poison Ivy shows up and challenges the top spot to the press and then makes a quick getaway. Batman tries to follow her but she manages to get away. All the while Robin is worried that Batman is falling in love with Poison Ivy. (Why? because he has a secret crush? haha)

    When the 3 top female criminals hear about Ivy's challenge they show up in her pre-arranged place and what do you know!? It turns out to be a trap and all 3 are knocked unconscience. When Batman arrives on the scene Ivy uses her charm to seduce Batman but Robin is there too and helps him to snap out of it and she is later arrested.

After making her big splashy entrance she encounters Batman and Robin the former w...

    Beware Of Poison Ivy ! 0

    The story begins at a gallery about the top 3 most beautiful villains and was attended by Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson. Suddenly a very beautiful woman dressed in a green leafy out-fit bursts on the scene and steals the attention of everyone there. She promptly announces that if everyone wasn't so blind they see that she was far more beautiful than any of those other 3 and that her crimes were so perfect that no-one even knew she had committed them. It was very obvious that Poison Ivy WAS more b...
