Poison Ivy and Batman have always had a complicated relationship, and now it’s been revealed that he might care about her a lot more than he lets on!
Warning: Spoilers for Batman #113!
When it comes to the many love interests of DC Comics’ Batman, Catwoman, and Talia al Ghul are usually at the top of the list, and now it’s just been revealed that Poison Ivy holds a spot alongside them as well! Suffice it to say, Ivy’s current main squeeze, Harley Quinn, probably wouldn’t appreciate Batman’s feelings for her girl, even if those days are long gone.
Revealed as Ghost-Maker and Batman dive into Bruce’s mind during the Fear State-related events seen in Batman #113, by James Tynion IV and Jorge Jimenez, Poison Ivy being on Batman’s brain isn’t as weird of a revelation as fans may initially think. Hoping to purge the remaining influence Jonathan Crane aka Scarecrow might still have over his fractured psyche, Batman has developed a “bat-mind-control helmet” to telepathically enter his mind and get to the bottom of his fear-based concerns.
