It's just occurred to me that I have not yet bored you all to tears with what my favorite take on Poison Ivy is. This shall not stand.

Like most of Batman's rogues, Ivy's portrayals in most of fandom - if not always the comics themselves - are usually based on the BTAS take. Green-loving, misandrist, and the no-nonsense straight-man (... wow that sounds wrong) to Harley Quinn's antics. I suppose there's nothing wrong with this on paper, but the executions have always left me cold (even Harley and Ivy - the original episode, not the zillion spinoffs Dini's written - only worked for me as an analysis of the Harley-Joker relationship, with Ivy as an outside variable).

Instead, I've always been a sucker for the Gaiman/Moore interpretation, the Ivy that rose from the seeds Saga of the Swamp Thing had planted back in the '80s. You can see Gaiman's contribution to Ivy's right here, but today, we concern ourselves with what Moore brought to the table.

What's that, you say? Alan Moore never wrote a Poison Ivy story in his life? No, no he hasn't. John Francis Moore, on the other hand...

'Golden Age' is one of my favorite arcs from Bendis' and Maleev's run on Daredevil. It's just a great combination of writing from Bendis and art from Maleev. It's also largely a stand-alone story so you just need to be familiar with the basic concept of Daredevil being outed as Matt Murdock and later declaring himself the 'Kingpin' of Hell's Kitchen.

Hank Pym's Doctor Nemesis (who you're thinking of was in Argentina at the time) was one, scheming along lines that only profited him.

He was a scientist kind of villain, but not one to build legions of robot assistants or sprawling laboratory complexes from which he birthed things with cool names.

No, his lair was literally a trailer. Nix on allies as well, unless you count the events of 1973's Marvel Feature #9.. )
