Poison Ivy continues her reign over the world but Batman looks like he has a plan!

It’s pretty well known that Batman has contingencies for if his fellow DC heroes go rogue and in this issue we see them come into play but with a twist as it’s not necessarily them but rather Ivy who is controlling them. Its pretty awesome to see Batman’s plan come together and I challenge anyone to try and claim they saw the final page character. It’s a brilliant moment when you realize Batman was like 40 moves ahead and the lengths he is willing to go to.

Poison Ivy continues to become an awesome character, she isn’t 100 percent villain Yeah she does some pretty awful stuff like enslave the entire world but he does it for understandable reasons, you can’t really hate her for what she is doing as she is kinda doing a good thing, still rooting for Batman though!

The one thing Ivy has done well is simplified the Bat/Cat wedding plans, I loved Selina going through the list of things to do. Another brilliant issue

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
