Tom King and Mikel Janin bring you the epic conclusion of Ivy’s rule over the entire world. As truths come to light of the events that shaped who Poison Ivy is now, Batman and Catwoman must work together to end Ivy’s domination. The epic showdown will leave you wanting more, but can Batman save Poison Ivy from what she has done? Can Poison Ivy redeem herself? Only Batman and Catwoman can save the world, but this time Supergirl, Superman, and Superman of China stand in their way.
What you need to know:
The War of Jokes and Riddles might be over, but its madness and outcome still linger around. Poison Ivy was a member of Riddler’s team many years ago; she did things for his cause that has haunted her to this day. Her reign as Queen is to fix what she has done and make right for all the hurt she has caused throughout her life. Can Batman and Catwoman save her soul from where it has gone? Will the greatest detective find a way to stop what the world is going through, or has Poison Ivy truly taken over the world and everyone in it?
What you’ll find out:
Catwoman and Poison Ivy go for a walk in the park and amongst the green Poison Ivy reveals a dark past that still haunts her, a past that shaped her into what she is and what she never wanted to become. To see this side of Poison Ivy is a refreshing take, seeing her trying to redeem herself from the sins of her past and hating what she has become is a nice sight to see, but is the way she is trying to save the world the correct way? With Batman now in the hospital and being watched by Supergirl, Superman, and Superman of China; Batman sees an opportunity that even Poison Ivy might have overseen; Harley Queen. While Catwoman talks to Poison Ivy in the park and Batman works to break out Harley Quinn from Ivy’s control, Poison Ivy begins to see that something might be wrong with her.
What just happened?
Batman and Catwoman face Poison Ivy on two different fronts, but this time things turn upside down when they bring in a wildcard that will help them stop Poison Ivy and her world domination. Making his way out of the hospital; Batman must face his way out from some very Super Friends. As things begin to unravel and the guilt that pushed Poison Ivy comes out to light, Batman brings his own detective skills into work from the past that will stop everything Poison Ivy has done but can this new truth open Poison Ivy’s eyes on what she has done? Both Batman and Catwoman stand by as their wild card brings Poison Ivy back to reality and hope that it is not too late for Poison Ivy’s redemption.
