Quote1.png That silly little thing only shines in the polluted skies over Gotham. I tried to save that toxic cesspool, but Gotham is lost. Nothing green will ever grow there again. I can still save Metropolis, though. Return it to the glorious forest it once was. Would you like to know how? Quote2.png
Poison Ivy src

Pamela Isley is Poison Ivy, a diminutive and antisocial teenage girl with the ability to control and communicate with plant life. She attends Metropolis High School, and is and a distant friend of Jessica Cruz.

Arrival in Metropolis

When Batgirl arrives at the Metropolis Pesticide Plant, some plants chase her and when she arrives, she trips over some pods and finds Poison Ivy sitting on a throne made of plants and she tells her that for a moment she had thought that Batgirl was Batman, and then Batgirl asks if it was because of her costume or her ninja abilities and then Poison Ivy looks at her sarcastically and grows some carnivorous plants and orders them to attack Batgirl and then she retaliates and jumps towards Poison Ivy but she grows a plant that spits out a strange purple powder. As Batgirl sees the exit and tries to escape, Poison Ivy finds her and looks at her with a desperate look and then Batgirl makes her more and more enraged and chases her in a very violent and dangerous way. When Batgirl sees an open window, she sees this as a chance to call Batman, but Poison Ivy throws and breaks her flashlight and she explains that the bat signal only works in the polluted clouds of Gotham and tells him that she herself tried to save Gotham but from so much contamination nothing green would grow there again. She says that Metropolis can be save and return to the forest that it once was. She grows some baby plants as a counteroffensive to Batgirl. Batgirl hits very hard on the wall almost to the brink of death and then tells her that nothing is going to stop her not even a silly little girl in disguise and then Batgirl drops her Bat-knight plush doll and Poison Ivy laughs at her that she can't do anything. Batgirl then frees herself and activates the bomb that was inside her doll and throws it into a pesticide bucket and manages to defeat Ivy. Commissioner Gordon arrives and tells Batgirl that she would make a better sidekick of Batman rather that Robin. Meanwhile, Poison Ivy escapes leaving pods with thorns.

Defending the Ancient Tree

Jessica tries to befriend Pam Isley even though Babs tells Jess that Pam wants to be alone, and the rest of the team concurs. Jess insists on befriending her, with Pam rejecting her repeatedly. Eventually Pam finds out that Jess is protesting the cutting of an ancient tree. She joins her and they chain themselves to the tree. At night Pam tells the story of the tree who "speaks" to her by rustling in the wind. Pam grows angry over the imminent destruction of the tree. She clenches her fist in the soil, and vines grow around it. When the wrecking crew arrives, Pam vanishes and Poison Ivy attacks the crew with her vines, flipping cars, tearing the road, and coiling the vines around the workers. She throws a bulldozer at the crew, and Green Lantern deflects it back, felling the ancient tree. Poison Ivy falls to her knees, in tears and a fit of rage. She retreats into the ground with her vines and tells Green Lantern that she will pay. The next scene, Pam and Jess find an acorn by the stump of the ancient tree. They plant it, and the episode ends with a shot of the acorn growing into a sapling as Jess and Pam walk away.

Joining the Super Villain Girls

Pam befriends Selina along with Doris, Leslie, and Carol. She and the other four girls convince Harleen to join them, and so, they've formed a villain team and they vandalize the city by stealing jewels, causing chaos and fear, and destroying buildings and properties of the city.

Soul Sisters

Katana took her soul along with the rest of the Super Villain Girls. Not long after that, she was alive in Batgirl's bedroom after Katana realizes that being a hero doesn't mean taking someone's soul away.

Night of the Living Plants

Jessica Cruz, Babs, Hal Jordan, Karen and Garth are having a camp in the middle of the forest, though Jessica confiscates all of their technology from them, including their powers. Jessica also invited Pam, who witnesses personal horrors that she sees when the rest are cutting and burning wood and picking up flowers. As Pam runs away to the forest, Babs tells the others a scary story about a witch in the forest, while at the same time, Pam transforms into Poison Ivy and summons an army of forest monsters to attack everyone. The monsters devour Aqualad, then it grabs Hal as he transforms into a monster soon after. With their powers inside the bag that was hanged on the top of a tree, the girls use the kitchen utensils from a cabin and attacked the monsters, though they were quickly captured by the monsters, and Ivy walks away victoriously, thinking that the heroes are dead. Fortunately, Jessica grabs her power ring to transform into Green Lantern and destroys all of the monsters while freeing her friends. As everyone, including Pam, are heading home, they forgot about Hal, who was locked inside a closet.

Anger Manangent

Poison Ivy, along with Carter, Barry and Kara (who was urged to go), attends Jessica's workshop to control her anger problems and try to help Kara with her own. Later in Metropolis, Poison Ivy loses her temper seeing that the lake in the park would be removed to make way for a concrete statue, thus creating an algae-monster. Eventually, Green Lantern and Supergirl (who took out the central spore) were able to defeat it, with the latter throwing said spore into the sun.
