i'm feeling like a criminal. by lay-me-to-sleep i'm feeling like a criminal. by lay-me-to-sleep

We're introducing a lot of new rogues to our storyline. I'm kind of charge of the female rogues, and the woman who has always been Poison Ivy for me is Rose McGowan. We just introduced Ivy in the new ark, of course I haven't flushed out a lot of her character so far.

But what I'm working with currently, she her crime against humanity is she's a bio-terrorist / eco-freak. She prefers plant life to people.

I love the way she was done in Arkham Asylum with the almost embossing of ivy on her skin, I can't have that here, since we're functioning in Nolanverse, meaning we need to function on realism.

So that meant for Ivy --- no green skin, abilities to control plants (i do however see her stating that she can hear them talking to her per her mental illness.) or anything like that --- that's why she's become a bio-chemist and terrorist. But to still make her Ivy, I thought of giving her tattoos. Ivy tattooed all over her arms.

Harley is in there because I wanted to keep a link to all things and Matt said do a manip of Harley&Ivy, since they're like PB&J.

They're also the only female villains, no Catwoman doesn't count.

Big fan of your works btw :D Just wondering if this was for a fanfiction & if so where can i find it (is it on Also do make youtube videos? because this deviation of yours makes me think of this video I favorited about a yer ago: Joker/Harley/Ivy "The Ghost Of You"  I also love Brittany Murphy as Harley Quinn & Rose McGowan as Ivy.

There is no public form of the story that was created by my boyfriend and i, years ago.  You have realize we wrote once a week for almost three years. I have not been able properly post them. What is posted on the images is all that's public. I do have a youtube…

I've seen that video and know the maker.

Nicely done. I so wish that the talented Brittany Murphy was still with us to play Harley Quinn or Poison Ivy in a future film. Maybe Hathaway will return as well {with a whip} using the "Clean Slate" on Blake to become Robin.

I like the idea of Ivy as a biochemist/ eco-terrorist myself; an environmentalist gone way over the deep end. It's the only way it would work in the Nolanverse. I similarly imagined Mister Freeze as a psychotic serial killer/ artist who creates macabre tableaus using a tank of liquid nitrogen strapped to his back with a hose and nozzle to attack his victims with. Alas with Nolan capping his foray into the Batman universe as a trilogy, we'll never get a chance to see any of these characters Nolanized...

Nice pic BTW.

Nolan is based off realism and I get that. And also since this picture has been made since it is so old. We also kind of added that Ivy thinks the plans are talking to her. I imagine her being driven a little mad by the experiments performed on her by that original doctor [his name escapes me at the minute] the basis being that they left her sterile.

As for Freeze, I hate changing him, I have loved him in B;TAS for so long. But we used him in our storyline he was a hit man, whom would "ice" over people by killing them. At some point he was manipulated and brought into Batman's world via the mob. His wife who is ill is taken by the mob and he's forced to "ice" people over once again after a hiatus of clean of sorts. That or Mister Freeze is a Meth Cook, since Meth is called Ice and Nora is a drug addict I haven't decided.
