Batman #181 June 1966 Beware of -- Poison Ivy!

Image & Info Courtesy Of My Comic Shop.com

In June of 1966 DC Comics introduced Batman & Robin to a new villain named Poison Ivy and she has been a literal thorn in the side of the 'Dynamic Duo' ever since.

"TROUBLE BETWEEN THE DYNAMIC DUO! ... IS SHE THE CAUSE?"

Of course she is!

An original grunge girl and botanist from Seattle, Pamela Lillian Isley wants to be on top of Gotham's criminal food chain so she invites all the other riot girls in town (Dragon Fly, Silken Spider, Tiger Moth) to a rumble. Though Batman is worried that Robin wants to pollinate with the poisonous plant girl it is the Caped Crusader himself that succumbs to her charms. Can Robin snap him out of his love-sick haze before Ivy takes him back to her greenhouse for a dirt nap?
