    The fun thing about the original song could easily describe Poison Ivy! My wife once commented that the original easily can be read as that the woman in the song is in love with Jolene, but not understanding those feelings. I did a rewrite in that vein, but also found out that it made horrible sense from Harley's point of view:

    Ivy, Ivy, Ivy, Ivy
    I'm begging of you don't take me from my man
    Ivy, Ivy, Ivy, Ivy
    Please don't take me just because you can
    Your beauty is beyond compare
    With flaming locks of auburn hair
    With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
    Your smile is like a breath of spring
    Your voice is soft like summer rain
    And I cannot compete with you, Ivy

    I talk about you in my sleep
    There's nothing I can do to keep
    Him hearing when I call your name, Ivy

    And I can easily understand
    How you could take me from my man
    But you don't know what he means to me, Ivy

    Ivy, Ivy, Ivy, Ivy
    I'm begging of you don't take me from my man
    Ivy, Ivy, Ivy, Ivy
    Please don't take me just because you can

    You could have your choice of men
    But never I'll find one again
    He's the only man for me, Ivy

    I had to have this talk with you
    My happiness depends on you
    And whatever you decide to do, Ivy

    Ivy, Ivy, Ivy, Ivy
    I'm begging of you don't take me from my man
    Ivy, Ivy, Ivy, Ivy
    Please don't take me even though you can
    Ivy, Ivy

    Here’s a great different version of that song to kickstart the day...

    Plant legs? Looks like we're definitely getting plant-person Ivy (if the green skin wasn't enough indication).

    I wonder if she has an official "Supervillain" costume...although I guess a practically naked Ivy look isn't that far-off for the kind of show this seems to be.

    Seeing how they don't match the shade of green of her face and neck, I think those are just vine patterned tights like her classic costume.

    She also appears in the "Batman vs TMNT" trailer at 1 minute mark.

    I doubt she'll have a big role in it but it's good seeing her there. I like her very classic look.
    A picture would last longer darling...

    22 years after her onscreen appearance, Uma Thurman's portrayal of Poison Ivy still makes women movie-goers' Top 10 list of female supervillains, beating out the likes of Doctor Poison, Ghost and Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique: https://www.newsarama.com/44158-wond...-villains.html

    Interestingly, 3 of the characters above Uma's Ivy were introduced in the last year and a half. Otherwise she's be in the Top 5.

    As I mentioned in the thread about the poll over in the TV/Film forum, Thurman's Poison Ivy and Pfeiffer's Catwoman were the only characters on the list that appeared in movies before 2012—and they did it in the 90s. That speaks to the strength of these characters.

    Anyway, two really cute Ivys (Ivies?) by Agnes Garbowska:

    It's funny how much this statue lines up with the issue.

    spoilers:
    I think many problems still stand and the massacre was unnecessary, but if King ends up giving Ivy and Wally a positive ending after all this, I'll definitely be more forgiving
