World's Finest Comics told Poison Ivy's origin story in issue #251. Written by Gerry conway and inked by Ric Estrada, it's not survived 100% unchanged to today.



Ivy, obviously, returns to wreak her revenge and turns Lebrand into a giant tree man. Wonder Woman then tears his arms off.

Being taken advantage of by a man stays, as does her immunity to toxins, but the name changes.

Well the name of the man changes, Jason Woodrue, the Floronic man.

She's also been called Ivy Pepper, but let's just ignore that.

BTW, I would *also* love to see Wonder Woman ripping this jerk's arms off.

Pamela is much better imo. Unique. It means sweetness

"Legrand was smooth and Lilly was young [...] He was a master [...] binding her to him more completely than any slave..."

Considering this was written well before widespread awareness of sexual harassment in academia, and the resulting codes of conduct prohibiting romantic and/or sexual relationships between faculty and students, I'm pleased that the story portrays Legrand's wooing of Lilly as manipulative and wrong well before the reveal of his outright criminal motives.

Eurgh, Marc is a bit of a scumbag, isn't he?
To be honest, this works better as an origin than it being Woodrue - who isn't really manipulative in that fashion, and is far more determined to simply wipe out humans than Ivy's approach of taking down corporations and polluters.
He's a villain, but just not a faux Casanova like Marc here.

Oh this story is in my Arkham: Poison Ivy collection. If I recall correctly, he turns into a plant monster right?

Nothing will tie him to the theft... except the dead body of the thief he'd been banging?
