Poison Ivy died in Heroes In Crisis, at the hands of… someone. Harley Quinn says it was Booster Gold. Booster Gold says it was Harley Quinn. But Wally West does too, but in Heroes In Crisis #7, he is up and about, confirmed as the fellow who picked the rose that Harley Quinn dropped into the river to the memory of Ivy.
And we got the rose dropped in memoriam.
And then picked up by hands that looked like those of Wally West. Who is also meant to be dead. Though at whose hands, that's also a bone of contention.
And that rose is to play a role it seems in the opening of Heroes In Crisis #7, published today.
This is a Wally West who hasn't died in Sanctuary. Or rather hasn't died yet. As the one that died there is five days older than he should have been and, you know, time travel and stuff.
And somehow has a new life to give.
Both Flashes Wally West and Barry Allen had their powers activated my lightning and chemicals. And chemicals are just… stuff. There's plenty of chemicals in a rose dropped in a polluted river… and somehow…
A new Poison Ivy, grown from a rose. Somehow. A new avatar of the green? Made of the plants she used to create her pheromones? More like Black Orchid now? Or Swamp Thing? And font for more Poison Ivy cosplay?
And a Wally West who may be confessing…
Poison Ivy's powers were as a result of a mixture of several potent toxins originating from a selection of venomous predators and poisonous plant life introduced into her bloodstream to act as a mutagen, making her touch deadly while also giving her a superhuman immune system, and creating pheromones to control people. However, some versions of the character show her as more plant than human, such as breathing carbon dioxide and undergoing photosynthesis as well as having a more plantlike appearance with aloe blood and chlorophyll skin. She;'s also been able to mentally control all forms of plant life on a molecular level. The Swamp Thing once dubbed her The May Queen of the Green… a title she may now reclaim?

Now Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman must face off with their own creation-and face the consequences for what they created.
