This Woman Presents Thorny Problems
30 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode begins with a flashback from five years ago. It was groundbreaking time for the new Gotham Penitentiary, funded by the Wayne Foundation, and has been the dream pet project of district Attorney Harvey Dent.

Dent is a major part of this story because he winds up as the first victim of "Pam Isley" a.k.a. "Poison Ivy. Miss Isley's nice little rose garden was ruined when the big prison was built and she wasn't happy about it. Now, she has her own way of revenge, using a wild thorny rose

  • thought to be extinct - as a lethal poison.

I loved the artwork in here: the browns and blacks of the Gotham skyscrapers were awesome. Bruce Wayne's yellow "Cord" automobile was very stylish.

While Ms. Isley was interesting, the better "villain" was her huge fly trap plant, which was genuinely scary and made for some good action scenes as it tried to devour Batman.

This was another attention-getting episode, and I'm sure we'll see more of "Poison Ivy."
