Poison Ivy Reboot 'animated' by MatthewRHumphreys Poison Ivy Reboot 'animated' by MatthewRHumphreys
Pamela Isley. Eco terrorist, human hater, manipulator.

In this reboot, she's going to be the mentor of Harley Quinn. But she'll be the mentor in the same fashion as Hannibal Lecter was in Silence of the Lambs. She remains in Arkham for the first few episodes, with Harley sneaking in to consult with her.

I think Poison Ivy is taken to lightly in most stories which is why I'm treating her like a weapon of mass destruction which she is. Using her powers she can kill in the most vile and devastating ways. She could level a city in short order. Hence she's kept under an airtight lock and key.

She's forced to provide herself with her own oxygen as her powerful pollen could seep through an air vent. So her clear enclosure front appears to look in on a terrarium. Without sunlight though she's only able to grow normal plant life. Nothing strong enough to break herself out. Hence she's trapped pretty well.

When Harley Quinn first sneaks in and has her life changing conversation with the Joker she sees an opportunity. She overhears Joker's words to Harley.

After her first outing as Harley Quinn she comes back to brag to Mister J only to find his cell empty. A voice calls to her from the door next to his. Harley edges over and sees a softly colored green woman (the hooded version) standing at the glass.

He escaped. He does that you know. You'll never pin him down, that one.

Harley then comes back several times afterward getting advice and guidance from Ivy and each time Ivy tries to convince her to set her free.

Eventually Harley gives in and opens Pandora's Box.

For her look I wanted to make her really viney, etc but then I realized that the best versions of her are the simpler ones. So I started back from scratch after several drafts and came up with this forest nymph like look for her that I ended up liking.

She is beautiful, yet sinister looking. Perfect for any Batman villain.

I have to say I always thought a good non-animated series Poison Ivy design was impossible you did it sir.

Very nice. However, I think what makes Poison Ivy not as memorable is her goals and such. While she seems to not like people and has empathy issues with them, having better understood plants, there is always the balance of one and the other. In fact, she seems more concerned with protecting nature and being left somewhat alone. Her causing mass killing would be against her nature. Well, not at first, least until she understands people somewhat the same way as plants.

If only you we're in charge of making an actual reboot, it would be awsome with your designs and ideas.

I think the reason Ivy's taken too lightly is because kids are watching.
BlazeKnight729 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012
There's more to this style, eh? I like this take on Ivy, namely the cloak and her hair.
CLXcool Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Someone needs to hire you to do another Batman cartoon. This(along with your other designs and descriptions of the characters) are great. And this design of Poison Ivy is about as good as Lauren Faust's take on the character. :)

Is this "reboot" something that is actually happening? Or is it just some fan fiction (nothing wrong with that)?

Her face is fabulous! I love the femme fatale look, as it's a classic for Ivy. And the nymph aspect definitely comes through, especially with her first picture.

Ps. That cloak? :love:

What would you say her relationship with Harley is in your universe?

I like it. It's like a combination of her usual look with her appearance from The Batman. Very nice.

God, I freaking LOVE Poison Ivy, and you did her excellent justice here. Amazing!

Oh man I love the plant robe. And her origin episode really makes her seem like a serious threat.
VerdantMistress Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2011
I really like this remake of her, the outfit is awesome!
Pogues Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011
That leaf cloak is brilliant.
happymonkeyshoes Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Absolutely bang on sir. This is exactly how I'd like her to be played out. She's a proper femme fatale, but hasn't been properly utilised since the original BTAS. I liked her in Matsuda's version, but the teen version stopped the sultry part of her, yours ha it in spades.

Is her hair shorter when her leaf hood is on and grows longer in sunlight?
MatthewRHumphreys Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2011  Professional Filmographer
It actually curls up and 'blooms' when it's out.

As I stated on another reboot pic, why for this can't be a real series?

Maetch Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2011
So... what's her origin? I mean, Ivy's general backstory is that she was experimented on/mutated into a plant-human hybrid with a grudge for all humans. Knowing you and what I've seen so far, you could probably take that old schtick in a new direction.

Perhaps Ivy's escape would be the Season 1 finale. Harley lets her out, Ivy goes nuts, and Batgirl has to step up and face a true city-wide threat as her introduction to the big-leagues of crime-fighting.

the flowers look a lot like TREMoRS!

I like it :) it's a nice change from the serious ones you see floating around.

the leaf overcoat is genius, period.

I love how you give the history of the characters and your ideas for their stories in the description box. Thank you so much for that. And the design kicks ass, too!
