Synopsis for "Law of the Jungle"

This story is reprinted from Batman Giant (Volume 2) #2.

A Native American watches in awe as machines clear a patch of the Amazon rainforest and suddenly comes upon Batman, running away in fear from him. Bruce has come to Brazil after a series of murders of government officials and industrial leaders involving their bodyguards, who had no explanations for the killings. Batman suspects Ra's al Ghul and the League of Assassins, and investigates the party hosted by the CEO of Madeiras Lumber.

Batman realizes that it was Poison Ivy who has been behind the string of killings because they were harming plant life, after spotting her at the party with his drones. Batman interrupts the assassination attempt on the CEO by his bodyguard Joao, under the possession of Ivy and makes her flee using a military-grade herbicide. Bruce asks her to surrender but she refuses, instead running away to rainforest area that still contains trees.

Ivy attacks Batman with a tree and knocks away his herbicide, leaving him struggling to fend her off before he is knocked away into a Native American village, belonging to the same tribal who saw him before. Ivy refuses to spare them despite Batman's pleas and he throws a kid out of harm's way, causing the tribals to attack Ivy with frog poison she isn't completely immune to.

Ivy however soon recovers and tries to kill the Native Americans, but Batman knocks her out using a prototype knockout pod. As he sends her back to Arkham Asylum in his Batwing, Bruce decides to buy up part of the land for a nature reserve.
