Today, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer NetherRealm Studios released a new overview-like Injustice 2 trailer that introduces the previously confirmed character: Poison Ivy.
As you may know, Poison Ivy is a DC Comics supervillian who made her debut back in June 1966 via Batman #181. She is one of Batman’s most enduring enemies and belongs to the collective of adversaries that make up Batman’s rogues gallery.
Further, she is depicted as one of the world’s most notorious eco-terrorists. Her real name is Pamela Lillian Islet, a Gotham City botanist, who is obsessed with plants, environmentalism, and ecological extinction. Fellow villain Harley Quinn is often her recurring parter-in-crime. Lastly, the character has been a romantic interest of Batman in various comic book storylines.
Here’s an overview of her character via NetherRealm:
Dr. Pamela Isley was once an innovative, radical botanical biochemist with a singular goal: make the world safe for plant life to flourish. She joins the Society to further their common interest in bringing mankind to its knees, but at heart, Ivy’s desire is to ensure that in any new world order, flora dominates fauna.
Injustice 2 is set to release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 16, 2017. Below, you can check out the new trailer and Poison Ivy:
