Synopsis for "Harley and Ivy and... Robin?"

While pursuing Harley Quinn, Robin is ambushed by Poison Ivy, and brainwashed by her signature kiss. With the Boy Wonder their loyal thrall, Harley and Ivy launch a massive crime spree, their new accomplice's training and skills proving more than a match for even Batman. In time, however, Harley grows resentful of Robin, whose competence (and mindless devotion) comes to monopolize Ivy's attention.

One night, Harley finds a beaker of antidote in Ivy's storeroom, which she eagerly laces into Robin's drink. One swallow leaves Robin confused and off-balance, whereupon Harley attacks him, only to be intercepted by Batman (who had traced their location through a rare leaf Ivy had left behind during one of their robberies). Fleeing back into the storeroom, Harley manages to outmanuever Batman, pinning him under a heavy cupboard; shortly after, Ivy gives Robin another kiss and orders him to kill his trapped mentor.

Without warning, Robin turns on Harley and Ivy and subdues them both. As the villainesses are taken into custody, the Boy Wonder cheerfully reveals that after Batman's arrival, he had immediately drank the rest of the antidote, completely immunizing himself to Ivy's kisses - and topping off an unusually enjoyable case.
