Depending on your age, you might remember Poison Ivy from the disastrous 1997 movie Batman & Robin. Forget that – we’re taking you back to basics with Poison Ivy’s first appearance in 1966’s Batman #181!

As one of Batman’s most enduring antagonists, Poison Ivy makes a loud and proud debut in Batman #181, attempting to prove to Dragon Fly, Silken Spider and Tiger Moth that she is the greatest female villain ever.

Using her signature tricks, including love potions and mesmerizing gas, she seduces Batman and Robin and turns them against one another.

Written by the legendary Gardner Fox, who wrote dozens of Batman comics (and thousands of others), Batman #181 features one of the most memorable and enchanting villainesses in Batman history. It’s a true collector’s item!

WARNING: complete copies of this book include a pinup poster of Batman and Robin in the center (see image at right). If it's missing, the value plummets!
