Hello people, it’s been a very long time.  My apologies.  Let’s see if I can do better.

Recently, there’s been quite a lot of ugliness on display with the GamerGate Scandal and the horrific backlash towards Ms. Sarkeesian (links here, severe stuff).  So, I’d like to give ya’ll a series of drawings made by me of strong female characters taken from games, comics, manga, and history [1].  Today’s character is Ms. Poison Ivy of the DC Universe.

It's her day off.  Can't do supervillainy every day you know.

Can’t do supervillainy every day you know.

Ms. Ivy, one of Batman’s most common and most beautiful opponents, really rather enjoys her gardening and commonly uses genetically modified plants as a means of attack.  Today she’s working with a variety of tea rose [2].  Why is she in a pink shirt, red track pants, sandals, and a jeans jacket?  Because it’s her day off and she can wear what she wants to.

Why is she strong?  She routinely engages an opponent who wields martial arts, sharp objects, and grappling hooks using nothing but flora and panache (UPDATE:  and a Ph.D. in botany.)  That takes some skill and planning right there.

Keep the comments civil, people.


[1] These interpretations are from the perspective of a fan.  The characters are owned by their respective companies.  The interpretations may be out of character depending on who you ask, but who cares?  It’s a drawing people.

[2] It’s not an evil tea rose or anything, just a nice hybrid which tolerates the slightly cooler weather of Gotham City better.
