- "I am Nature's arm. Her spirit. Her will. Hell, I am Mother Nature, and the time has come for plants to take back the world so rightfully ours! 'cause it's not nice to fool with Mother Nature."

|Alias(es)|| Dr. Isley|
|Appeared in||Batman & Robin|
Dr. Pamela Isley wworked for Wayne Enterprises until her boss Jason Woodroe tried to kill her for seeing the creation of Bane. Isley then became the villainess Poison Ivy due to the plants and poisons she was nearly killed in.
Batman & RobinEdit
Pamela Isley is shown researching in a South American lab, where she discovers the theft of certain plant toxins from her lab. Investigating, she discovers her boss, Dr. Jason Woodrue, offering up Bane, a soldier enhanced by Venom, a toxin-derived chemical, to various bidders. Bane lashes out, and Isley is revealed in the fracas. Woodrue asks her to join him, but when she declines, he kills her by throwing her into a shelf full of chemicals (including a canister labeled Venom, the same drug that creates Bane).
Isley rises moments later, having been infused with the plant chemicals that she was thrown into. She kills Woodrue with a poisonous kiss and escapes the burning camp with Bane. Soon after, she appears in Gotham using both identities, Isley and Ivy, sparking friction between Batman and Robin - Robin proving more susceptible to her pheromones than Batman and thus becoming easily jealous - and breaks the recently imprisoned Mr. Freeze out of Arkham to form an alliance. Believing she is the dominant woman, she unplugs his wife's life-support system and claims that Batman did it, using this to encourage Freeze to begin a plan to freeze the entire Earth and then replace human life with her mutated plants, the two of them serving as the rulers. Although she captures Batman and Robin with her plants, she is defeated by the new Batgirl, her deception subsequently being revealed to Freeze in Arkham, who has personally sworn to make her life "a living hell" for almost killing his wife.
