Who Is Mysterio

My First Experience

With

Mysterio

Good Evening, Everyone and welcome back to C&M Comic Hub! Sorry for the late post, but you knew what you were getting into when you log into this blog (Ha-ha)! I hope you all are doing amazing! There are exciting things that are happening in the next 27 hours, and I know you know what the cause of that will be. ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ is coming out tomorrow (by the time this is published it will be the morning of. How many of you are excited to see Tom Holland play Peter Parker/Spider-Man again? I know that I am. I think that Tom Holland is an amazing actor, and he is perfect for this role. I know some people prefer Toby Maguire, and I can see why, but Tom is the perfect age and attitude of a 15-year-old boy in high school with superpowers.

In preparation of this movie, I had the chance to read the first appearance of Mysterio! Luckily, three days ago, Chris and I went to the comic shop to see if our issues we’ve been waiting for had come out. Right on the counter, there was a reprint of the Amazing Spider-Man issue that introduces Mysterio for only $1.00. Who wouldn’t pick up that up, right?

In this comic book, Spider-Man is viewed as a criminal by the city of New York because of certain actions he can’t seem to remember. Spider-Man is stealing from the citizens?? What are you talking about? Peter thinks that he is doing these bad things while he is asleep and thinks about going to see a psychiatrist. Upset by these revelations, he doesn’t even want to close his eyes but unfortunately, his eyelids shut, and the night goes by silently. Or so he thought. Spider-Man is spotted being a menace to the public again. Peter, being worried about helping Aunt May with bills, along with the fact that the city thinks of him as a villain, starts to stress him out more and more, affecting his mood and the way that he acts, which is now rash and direct.

Convinced he needs to see that psychiatrist; he swings by and sticks to the wall of the doctor’s office. The doctor being excited, tells Spider-Man to come in, relax, and to say whatever is on his mind. The doctor is trying to move his career forward by being the first professional in his field to psychoanalyze a Superhero. Spider-Man sees that this was a mistake immediately leaves the office as the doctor calls out for him.

Later, Mysterio contacts J.J. Jameson saying that he is capable of beating Spider-Man in battle. Jameson, being all for that, agrees to meet with him, not thinking the situation through. Mysterio suddenly appears in the corner of the office and hands Jameson a note.

Spider-Man goes off to meet the Mysterious man, but unfortunately, it did not go well for our favorite high school superhero. He is beaten every way to Sunday, which boggles the mind of the young hero. Finding no way to win, he decides that he needed to get away and get away fast! Off the bridge he jumps. Quickly he descends towards the water below. A police helicopter (which is called a “Police Whirly-Bird” by Peter) comes to scoop up Spider-Man and take him into custody, but no one can catch him! He’s too smart and too fast for you!

Relief floods Peter as he knows that Mysterio is the culprit of the theft. He doesn’t know how it was so, but he knew it was him! Next time that they meet, it’ll be a lot different!

J.J. Jameson introduces Mysterio to the public as the hero that New York always needed. He was the one that defeated the local menace Spider-Man and is now the city’s new hero. Peter Parker is introduced to Mysterio, and while everyone was distracted, he slipped a tracking device in the pocket of the mysterious stranger. Now, he has a way of finding him when no one else could.

“Mysterio is a real crime fighter! He’s not afraid to meet people and to be interviewed as that cowardly Spider-Man was! And once Mysterio has defeated Spider-man for good, he will reveal his true identity exclusively to my newspaper! It’ll be the scoop of the century for me! Right, Mysterio” -J.J. Jameson

“Right! Just as long as you remember the money you promised me!” -Mysterio

That was just a small part of who Mysterio is and was in the comics. He was in it for the fame and for the glory of being the one that defeated the Amazing Spider-Man! Who else in the world was able to say that?

Soon after that transaction was completed, Mysterio disappears into the mist not knowing that Peter was tracking him. Swinging onto the scene, Mysterio is taken aback as he doesn’t understand how Spider-man could have found him! Gaining his composure back from being surprised, his arrogance shows as he tells Spider-Man how he did what he did!

Outsmarted again, Spider-Man brought a miniature recorder that would capture all of Mysterio’s confession!


“A miniature recorder!! BAH! It will do you no good! I’ll destroy it—after I’ve defeated you!” -Mysterio

PAUSE! I just want to mention that Mysterio’s face (which you can see in these picture) looks just like Leonard Nimoy (Spock from Star Trek). Carry on!

A fight scene breaks out and Peter figures he should take pictures on the fighting so that he can sell them to his boss. Since Mysterio showed his hand to Spider-Man, it was a lot easier to defeat the mystery man. As it wraps up, Spider-Man carried Mysterio back to the police department and handed them the tape to prove his innocents. Before doing this, Peter drops off the fighting photos to J.J.’s office.

Spider-Man’s name is cleared of all charges and is free to do as he wishes. Stopping in on J.J. while he is in his office, he mocks J.J. for being wrong about him 100% of the time. Webbing J.J. to the ceiling, he swings off to the bright city ahead!

Thank you all for reading my easy read comic talk! I love this comic! This is my first Spider-Man comic and I am so glad that I got to start off with this issue. I think it is super smart of Marvel to re-release original looking comics in time of the release of a movie. This way, the fans can get a refresher of the storyline, and a refresher of the new villain in the series.

Now, in the trailer, Mysterio looks like he is trying to help Peter in a battle. Is Mysterio the one that created this battle so that he can see what Peter is capable of. To spend time with him and learn of his emotional state, what is he planning in this film?

I did a review of the trailer about a month and a half ago, which you can find in this link if you click it. https://candmcomichub.com/spider-man-far-from-home

I didn’t get to say much about Mysterio because I honestly didn’t know that much about him and I didn’t want to talk about something that I didn’t know much about. Now that I got to read the first appearance of this character, I feel like I know a lot more than before! Seeing the original art and how the speech patterns have changed is do amazing. If you have the ability, I would will you to go and buy this comic as soon as you can from your local comic shop (LCS).

Thank you all again for coming to read my thoughts. I know that you could be anywhere on the internet right now, but you choose to spend time here with me. I’m so happy that I get to bring you content that you like. I just sent out our first ‘Interview Questionnaire’ to a man that loves Star Wars. We would love to be able to get a lot more people to be interviewed, so if you would like to share your ideas or how you feel about a certain movie, comic, series then I would love to have you featured on our site!

Have an amazing time at the movies!

The Costume And The Issues

The

Golden Quinn

Good day/night, Everyone and welcome back to C&M once again! It’s always nice to have you all checking back in. I hope you all are doing amazing and staying excited about all of the upcoming things in the near future! If you are new here, my name is Kay and my partner here is named Chris, and I would like to invite you to look at our older posts! We continue to keep growing as we go, so try not to judge too harshly (Ha-ha)! We would love for any feedback either from comments on our posts or in our e-Mail at candm.bodenmiller@gmail.com. We can also be reached on our social medias.

What’s going on, Comic Fans? We have a lot of things to talk about since the last time we spoke. There’s been new pictures of Harley Quinn that has been circulating online that I just want to talk about. There’s more stuff that is going on like, ‘The Joker Movie’ that will be coming out on the 4th of October of this year, but this is something that caught my attention pretty quickly.

There’s a lot of talk about how Harley is being presented and how she should be acting. The opinion of “don’t fix something that isn’t broken” has been brought up quite a lot, and at times, I would say that is a good thing. In this sense, I don’t agree. There are a couple reasons on why I don’t think this statement is right, but I can only give my opinion on the matter. My opinion is a simple one, but I do believe that it is an educated one without too much of a bias on the matter.

A Common

Denominator

I identify with Harley Quinn (Harleen Quinzel) on a little bit of a personal level. I think that for anyone to connect with a character, I feel like they would have something in common with that said character. Though I didn’t have a person as bad as the Joker, I was involved in relationships that affected me in bad ways. There was a relationship that I thought I liked the guy but after time progressed, I didn’t feel anything for him. He made me say that I “loved him” when I did not. I spent a couple months with this person and slowly, I found myself overworked with nothing to show for it. I found myself becoming depressed.

There was another relationship that I was involved in that was a bit worse. This one lasted about one and a half to two years, and I honestly have no idea on why it lasted that long. In this one. It started out nicely, like most do. We were friends but there was more there, so we started to see one another. I was silly to think that he was only wanting me for me. After my savings in my account were drying up, they started to tell me that they needed more funds. They didn’t want to work a regular job because they would be watching their child at weird hours of the day. Well that’s what they would tell me. At this time, I was living in a dorm at my college about 200 miles away from my hometown. I was going to school full time, I was also working two jobs, one part time and one full time. I was constantly exhausted and overworked. I ate a lot of food, but I was consistently at an unhealthy weight. Luckily, I was able to make some really great friends at school, so I had a good system of people to talk to and run things by. Sadly, I didn’t talk to them about the big problems that I had. I should have.

The story of this doesn’t seem all that intense but at the time it really was. I was depressed to the point where I didn’t want to answer my phone whenever they called because they just wanted more from me. I just wanted to sleep. I would cry when I knew I wouldn’t be seen or heard (shower, dorm when my roommate was at work or class, car, when it was time to sleep, etc.). The constant thought of, “I just need to get past this month, and it will be right as rain” would pop into my mind, but I knew that it would be the same as this month.

Just as Harley had done, I found myself away from these poisonous relationships, and found myself feel confused and upset about where my life was. It was true that I was going to school and had dependable friends, but I just didn’t know how people found love. How could I trust someone again, knowing that they might be exactly like the people I was with before?

Out of no-where, my ‘Poison Ivy’ showed up and my life became full of hope and love. Being dependent on a person to improve your mood or emotions shouldn’t be the main thing that turns your life around. The dependency of being happier just because of a person is not what I am trying to say to you through text. Heaven knows I have a hard time with coming up with the right words to express my thought process.

Many people, not just females, have pasts just like hers. Maybe they are still involved in them, but there is a common ground with all of us. And I know that is seems like I got off topic, but I swear that it all ties in.

How much do you know about the relationship between Harley and Joker? Have you followed her from the beginning and seen how she learned thoughout the years that her relationship was toxic? Did you just see Suicide Squad movie in 2016? The relationship that you see in that movie is confusing to the people that have known these characters for years on end. I’ve seen online that girls (younger girls around 15-16 years of age) seen this movie and thought that they wanted a “Joker” type boyfriend, but in all honesty, no they do not. They like the idea that a guy would be so committed to his love interest that he fought his way to get her back but there’s an issue with that.

I mentioned it in the last post I had of Harley and Ivy. If you haven’t gotten to that page yet because you are new here or you just forgot to read it then…

Click here to jump to that article mentioned!

Just a little recap of it, Harley left the gang for about a year and gave birth to a baby girl by the name of Lucy. When she came back to the gang, Joker didn’t react to her the way that she wanted him to. He had no idea that she was even gone, and Harley seen that. It becomes apparent that he doesn’t care for her as much as he was portrayed in Suicide Squad. And if you enjoyed that movie, more power to you! I thought there were a lot of redeeming qualities to it and, though it is no longer cannon, I thought that it was fun and interesting to watch. I did not think it made sense, but it had potential. I am glad that it’s being remade though. Sorry, that was a little off topic, but I wanted to give an example of her love interest and how bad it was.

Onto The Real Reason For This Article!

Harley Quinn’s choice of clothing and how it changed throughout the years has been a huge topic lately. Every fan would love to see the original costume that she had in the beginning of her career in crime. I would love to see it to, but the thing is, I don’t think people would enjoy it as much as they claim they would. Sure, it is a great costume. Yes, it was perfect for her specific character in a way that if you see the outfit, you would instantly know who wears it, but I don’t believe that that costume could be created correctly. I don’t think it would be worn right. I don’t believe that it would look as good as we all want it to. It would be too baggy, or too tight. It wouldn’t have the right shade of red, the fabric is wrong, or the diamonds will be too small or too big. The cowl will be too bulky, or too small. I honestly think that there would be no winning with it. They made an amazing one in the Suicide Squad movie, BUT we only seen it for a second before it was taken away. And we only see the top portion of it too, so we don’t know what it all looked like. Maybe I am wrong. I would absolutely love to be proven wrong, but we see this costume as the peek/best of Harley Quinn, but it isn’t.

When she started to change her outfit, she starts to find herself without Joker. Even in the Arkham games by Rocksteady has her changing her clothes. She sees that Joker isn’t the man that she thought he was and gets irrationally angry when it’s pointed out by B-Man.

After pushing Harley out of the window, she understands that she needs to get away, but doesn’t know how, that is when Ivy comes in and we already know what happens there if you have read the ‘Poison Quinn’ article that I have linked earlier.

Harley changes her clothes time and time again. Finally, we get to see her individualism come out as she tries different outfits. Luckily for us, she loves the colors red/black together. There’s and essence to her past that she keeps around as a reminder of where she came from and who she is now. I hope that you all like the examples of her style that I found for you.

Keeping on the reason why I decided to write about this is because of the photo of Margot Robbie that came out recently for the Birds of Prey movie that has a release date of February 7th, 2020. There are actually two, but the one I’m highlighting is what caught my eye. I’ve been looking on Twitter for people’s reactions on the new look, and they haven’t disappointed. No matter what the director or costume designer had done, there would be a big battle between “if it was a good look or not”. IF they decided to do the original costume, people would say that they don’t try anything different, that it was safe, and they have no idea who Harley is and how she far she’s come from her time with the Joker. When they gave the fans the preview of the sort of things she is going to be wearing, people complain that, “If it’s not broken, it doesn’t need fixing”. In some ways, yeah, that’s a good saying, but this is what is happening. It isn’t here to make you angry. There is no point in that. The directors want to cater to the public so that we all go and see the film.

If you look at the getup of Harley in Suicide Squad, you can see that she has her colors on, but other than that, what else does she have on that signifies who she was and who she is? What about her hair? She doesn’t have pink and blue in her hair in the comics. There is no blue or pink on her ever in the series, besides this movie. But the public likes the style, so it stayed. It was liked so much that you can find it in her comic books now.

What about those booty shorts? Or her jacket, shirt, shoes, the bat, tattoos (though the tattoos are found in the Arkham games, but they aren’t the same ones)? Just everything! Change is not supposed to be scary. It’s supposed to be there to expand on her character. Especially when it’s just the clothing that she’s going to be wearing. Margot Robbie is a wonderful actress and I am thrilled that she is going to stay being Harley, because I honestly don’t know who else could play her. She’s super talented with the way she speaks and acts altogether.

I’m not here to tell you that you shouldn’t voice your opinion on what you think is good or not about your favorite characters. Please do! I love seeing different views on characters that I read up on and follow. I just don’t care for the ones that voice their opinions about characters that they don’t really know. They know her from just the one live action movie that isn’t even cannon anymore and think that’s all she is just a hot girl that has a baseball bat. They don’t know why she was even in the prison or why she would be chosen for the team. Everyone else has special powers or mutations, why is she even there. She is so much more than just a character.

Quinn, as a character, have grown extraordinarily into a badass anti-hero and that should be celebrated. Just because Harley (Margot Robbie) is shown in a gold jumper thing, doesn’t mean any less to her character. Most likely, there is going to be a lot of looks to her. She has two movies coming out in 2020! We will all see the different parts of her character.

I’m sorry if that seemed like a rant. If anything, I just want to clarify that, since this movie is being made, I have no doubt that it’s going to have a lot of details in it. Enough to satisfy the comic-nerd in all of us. I am super excited about seeing this film, including the new Suicide Squad movie that is being directed by James Gunn. Margot Robbie is extremely talented, and I am so happy that Harley is having her moment on the silver screen. She is honestly, my favorite character in the DC Comic franchise. And we will write about this film in just a little bit. I wanted to find more pictures and have an educated guess on what I think the movie will be about! Don’t you worry about that!

Thank you, Everyone, for coming back to see us here at C&M! I’ve been trying to get as much sun as possible and I find it was interfering with my writing! I’m sorry about that. I was doing so well too! But I hope you all enjoyed this article. I just went to the comic story yesterday and talked to the cashier that worked there. I’m writing up questions for him to answer so that I can have more interaction on this site. I love hearing passion when people talk about their favorite fandom. So, be on a lookout for that interview coming soon!

Have a wonderful rest of your day, and I will be back with more comic related things to talk about (Ha-ha)!

Back From A Sunburn

From Being Sick

To A Sunburn

Hello and welcome back to C&M, my name is Kay and I am going to be your host for today! I hope everyone had a wonderful Father’s Day and I’m sorry that I didn’t write about it sooner but it’s never too late to celebrate! Whatever your situation is, I hope that you had a good day anyway. I didn’t get to see my dad this year, but we did get to talk on the phone for a little while. This will be the ninth year that we have been in contact and it has been a blessing for sure!

I’ve been on Twitter a lot, lately, because I want to get to know you all and what’s going on. How everyone’s reacting to the news about the Joaquin Phoenix: Joker Movie being rated R for viewers. Or the rumored that Birds of Prey might also be rated R! How everyone is feeling about Robert Pattinson being the newest Batman. All of the things that I talk about on this blog, I want to know the feelings of other people like you and I. I don’t want to look at critics because I haven’t found a source that I like. I love hearing the opinions of fans and soon to be fans (because why not). So far, I know that people are really excited about these movies.

I’m working on a different post right now, but I’m doing more research on the character. I’m going to start posting more on the DC Character/Marvel Character tabs, so be on the lookout for that!

I hope that you all are having a wonderful day and enjoying the beautiful days to come. We tried to go out to the beach a few times, but Chris got a HUGE sunburn on his whole body, so we had to take care of that. It was baaaaaad (Ha-ha)! We have to invest in some extra strength sunblock because that was just a disaster. It was like when Captain Sunshine burnt all of the residences in the Monarch’s Flying Cocoon (Venture Bros.). Everyone was burnt…he looked like that.

How Are You All Today?

You All Are

Amazing

Good Evening, Everyone! Welcome back to another fantastic day in the life of C&M! If you don’t know already, because you are new, my name is Kay, and I would love for you to look into more of our site. We are still a very new blog, but that will be changing soon. Thank you all for coming back to see us. The people that come here weekly or every month, just know that you are my heroes.

I would like to say thank you to the people that have followed us on either Instagram or Twitter or both in the past month. We have seen a boom in our fan base and that brings us nothing but joy! We’ve met new and exciting people in out DM’s and we couldn’t be happier to respond. I would like to keep extending the invitation to follow us on our Twitter page at

It would mean a lot to us to be able to follow you back as well! I’m glad that we started up our Twitter because there is just so much information on it. So much that I can barley keep up!

It’s been a few days since the last we’ve posted, and I sorry about that. I just got so excited for the sun being out that Chris and I were at the beach. Sadly, he got a bunch of sunburns on his body, so we had to hid away from the sun too (Ha-ha), but I’m back to what I love, and that’s talking to you all! I hope that you all are enjoying all of the new art pieces that I have been posting. Each one of them takes me a very long time to finish up, but I’m happy I get to share it all with you! I believe my last one I made was Poison Ivy, and that one took me about 5 hours to do. I have been learning more and more things about Sketchbook, and I am so happy that I have gotten more fluent in me art. I can really see a big difference. Can you?

THANK YOU!!!!

Poison Ivy was also a part of my last post along with Harley Quinn. Which I was thinking that I should so a character profile on her, but I feel like I have already done that, so I think I’m going to be making a ‘highlight’ of her character. Try to understand where she would be coming from and what not. So, I have started up my research on her character and a couple others in hopes of seeing where they come from and who I think would play them the best.

I’m getting more into the art part of this blog, so if you have a hero that you would like to see me try, please let us know in our e-mail at candm.bodenmiller@gmail.com so that we can talk one on one.

Thank you all again for having us on your mind to come see us here at out small spot on the web. We hope to hear from you all soon! Keep tabs on our page because we’re going to be posting in the next day or so!

Celebrating Pride Month

Poison

Quinn

Hello Everyone and welcome back to C&M Comic Hub! It’s wonderful to have you all back here with us. It’s been a couple of days since out last post. My name is Kay and I would love to share with you, two lovely ladies that have been a staple in the DC world. Poison Ivy & Harley Quinn. They were first acquainted in the 47th episode of, Batman: The Animated Series that aired on January 18, 1993. Although they knew of one another before the initial meet, they really became friends during this series. They escaped captivity from the GCPD together and rode away in Ivy’s car. Their crime spree blossomed into an un-thought-of relationship.

“This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship”
Poison Ivy
Gotham Anti-Heroine

Before I get into this post, I would like to say, sorry that it was published later than what I said it was going to be. Chris surprised me with a Date-Day, to which we went to get food and went to go see the new Godzilla movie! Thank you, Chris! I needed to get out of the house (Ha-ha)! But I hope you all like what I have to write about! I’ll continue to work hard for us all. 😊

Though the road to get there was rough for both of them in different ways. I wanted to celebrate these two, because of a few reasons.

  1. I wanted to.
  2. They are amazing characters sperate.
  3. They are amazing together.
  4. They are apart of the LGBTQ+ community. Though they are fictional characters, I have seen the impact of their relationship to people that I know, and to people I do not know. They are important and I would like to share them with you all.

Let’s look at them separately and then put them together. I am a huge fan of both of them but seeing them together just sparks love in my own heart.

Harley Quinn

Facts About Our Favorite Clown-Girl

  • Her full name is Harleen Frances Quinzel.
  • She was created by Paul Dini & Bruce Timm and voiced by Arleen Sorkin.
  • Her first appearance was in Batman: The Animated Series in “Joker’s Favor” (September 11, 1992) which is the 7th episode in the series.
  • She was a part of (mostly the main person in) the Suicide Squad.
  • In Batman Begins: Return of the Joker, it seems to be that Harley Quinn had twins by the names of Delia & Diedre Dennis. Known as “Dee Dee”. Although it turns out that they might in-fact be the granddaughters of the two.
  • In the Injustice timeline, it is verified that Harley had a daughter (Lucy Quinzel-Napier) with the Joker. Quinn hid her away from Joker and left her with her sister. For about a whole year, he didn’t know that Harley was gone. This is told by Harley as she is speaking with Black Canary (because Black Canary is pregnant).

I’ve been a fan of hers longer than I can remember. My grandmother gave me a Batman: The Animated Series trading card that features Harley Quinn on it with some facts of her. It’s safely in my little memory box. It’s one of my favorite things that I have! I also have a bunch of her figures and little trinkets. You know how everyone knows a specific thing that you like, well, everyone in my family gets me Harley Quinn things. And now that I’m looking at all of her stuff online and reading comics with her in them, you can bet anything in this world that this won’t be the last thing that I write about her!

Harley could be considered one of those characters that goes deeper than just a silly clown girl. In the beginning, she was a professional Psychiatrist that was just starting off as an intern at Arkham Asylum. She was ready to take on the world, and study the criminally insane so that there would be more of an understanding of how these people became who they were.

Meeting Joker, it was all over for her. She was thinking that he was a poor man that just kept getting beat up by Batman. Her hatred of the Bat grew as did her feelings of the Joker. If you would like to see a more in depth look into the relationship between these two, I would highly suggest reading “Mad Love”. It is one of the most popular storylines in all of DC (mainly because this duo was such a fan favorite).

The love and compassion that she has for her daughter, Lucy, can only be described as true. She gave up her daughter to be watch by her sister so that the Joker wouldn’t find her. I think that she went back to Joker because if she were to be gone for longer than just the year, I feel like he would have gone to find her. That wouldn’t be, at all good for Lucy. I fear that she would have died. And if you are into video games, then a cool series to play, even if you have played it, is the Arkham games by Rocksteady. During the game, you have the chance of seeing many positive pregnancy tests on Quinn’s desk (this would be in Arkham City). At the end of the game, you are blessed with Harley’s Lullaby, ‘Hush Little Baby’. She rewords the song lyrics to make it her own. I’ll have the lyrics here and there will be a link to listen to it. It’s pretty bone chilling.

Hush little baby, don’t say a word

Momma’s gonna kill for you the whole damn world

And if they don’t laugh at our jokes,

Momma’s gonna stab out their goddamn throats

And if they start to run away,

Momma’s gonna paint the streets with blood

And once the blood starts to wash off,

Momma’s gonna blow some more heads off

And if the world still doesn’t laugh,

Momma’s gonna go and poison ’em

And once the poison does its job,

Momma’s gonna show you your legacy

And if the world still tries to fight,

Momma’s gonna burn their houses down

And if you grow up with his smile,

Momma’s gonna be so proud of you..

Poison Ivy

Facts About Our Favorite Nature Lover

  • Full name is Dr. Pamela Lillian Isley.
  • Created by Robert Kanigher and Sheldon Moldoff.
  • First appearance was in Batman #181 in June of 1966.
  • Jason Woodrue seduced her and injected her with the toxins as an experiment, in total killing her twice. As her body absorbed the toxins into itself, she became more powerful.
  • She has toxins in her bloodstream that makes her immune to other toxins and other dangers. She can control plant life. She also has the power of attraction using pheromones. If she spends a bit of time with a person, she will make them fall for her and do whatever she wants them to do.
  • She needs a lot of sunlight to keep her level-headed because her body makeup is that of a plant.
  • All she wants is to be left alone with her plants.
  • She helped Harley Quinn get back to health by sharing her toxins with Quinn after being found pushed out of a window from a tall building by the Joker.

Ivy, or Pamela, was a botanist in Gotham, but she was originally from Seattle. She was a very wealthy kid growing up but did not have a close relationship with her parents. She was a shy and impressionable young lady, to which make it easier for her superior to hang authority in her face to do as he wanted. As stated in the bullet points above, she was tricked into being injected with toxins, when it wasn’t a for sure thing that it would have been safe for humans. She felt anger and betrayed as she was left for dead. Her mind became mad. Her body incorporated the toxins in her being to protect itself, creating a mean-green woman in the process.

She feels pain from her darling plant, so much so that it physically hurts her as well. She can hear them cry out, to which rings in her ears consistently. All she want’s is to build a paradise that doesn’t include others.

He relationship with Batman is a bit different. When she was attacking the city of Gotham, he was the only one that wasn’t affected by the poisonous spores in the air. That made him different, and also a threat to her. If you watch the older Batman movies, you will find that Uma Thurman plays her in the 1997 Batman and Robin film. Batman and also Robin feel the effects of her charm. Ivy’s suggestive nature to seduce others with pheromones are shown clearly on screen. In the Arkham Asylum game, she uses these charms on the psychiatrist that was in charge of her case. She can be a very powerful person, and a very dangerous one at that.

Her relationship with Harley is so powerful that you can see in the Harley Quinn comics that she keeps potted plants on her windowsill, just to be reminded of her best friend/lover. I’ll have to make an ongoing thing about this comic series, because I love it and I think you all would like it too. Harley is immune to any forced suggested feelings that others would feel with Ivy because she was exposed to the same toxin that Pamela was introduced to. So, the feeling of love and admiration is completely genuine. That has to be a good feeling to have knowing someone loves you naturally.

I’d like to introduce their couple name as…

Poison

Quinn

These two women have a very interesting relationship that it’s hard to keep track of. I have Harley Quinn comic books (missing only a few) and Poison Ivy is involved in a lot of them. Sure, Quinn gets around and so does Ivy, but I like seeing that they always come back to one another after a while. We can see them being best friends to lovers to admiration. I love seeing their relationship unfold.

It wasn’t all candies and treats. Ivy was annoyed by the constant reminder that Harley loved the Joker. This was in the beginning of their friendship. Ivy was an independent woman that didn’t see the need in depending on someone so much that it messes with her day to day life. There were times that she would blow up at Quinn because of the thought that Harley wanted to be with Joker was just too ridiculous! How could Harley love someone that abused her emotionally, physically and mentally? How could this sweet girl be so damn stupid to want to go running back to that “psychotic creep”? At times it would just be too much for Ivy to handle.

I feel like, when you read about their story, and start to research them, you feel for them more and more. The back and forth bantering. The push and pull of relationship status. It’s awesome to see them interact in comics, cartoons, shows, games. Pretty much everything they do, if you have payed attention to their interactions, then it’s just that much sweeter to see it in action.

Since this post is in celebration of Pride Month, I’d like to zoom in on the times that they show more than just friendship in the comics and shows.

I, wholeheartedly believe that Ivy saved Harley’s life, And I will give you a few examples of that, though there are several examples of that already in this post!

  1. Ivy constantly reassures Harley of her worth.
    1. It’s important that Harley is show this, because she has lived under a man that would put her down every chance that he could get. There were times in which he would show her that she did something good. Those times wouldn’t be too much, but when it did happen, she clung onto it for dear life.
  2. Ivy shows Harley love without strings.
    1. Joker always wanted something from Harley. He would reward her with affection (what he and she thought was affection) but would want her to be involved with his schemes.
  3. Ivy would touch her gently.
    1. I have seen in more episode than I can count how many times Joker would fling Quinn around the room. “Mad Love” is a perfect example of this type of relationship. Though the cartoon/comic plays it off as goofy, if you look at it through her eyes or even Batman’s, you can see the darkness in this series. Touching Harley softly and with love, she starts to replace memories of being hurt with memories of tender love.

I’m not saying that someone’s self-worth has to highlighted by other to be real. I’m saying that in this case, Ivy knew what Harley needed and she fulfilled that role perfectly. Quinn was free from her chains and Ivy was happy to see her friend enjoy her life finally. Their relationship was defined as “Romantic Non-Monogamous Relationship”, if any of you were wondering. It works for them, so I think that it beautiful. I feel like Harley is trying to make it more permanent, but Ivy is still a bit weary that Joker might still be on the mind of the Clown-Princess.

I hope you all enjoyed this post! I love these two together, so I’m going to research more about them. You can never learn too much, so that’s what I’m going to do. They are my favorite Non-Fiction couple because of the strength of their bond. I have thought the world of Harley from a young age, and though it hasn’t said it before, I think that Poison Ivy is a blessing to the world. I honestly ‘root’ for her in most things.
