Poison Ivy is on a mission to destroy humanity in an effort to restore balance to Earth, making her DC Comics version of Thanos.
Warning! Spoilers ahead for Poison Ivy #1 by DC Comics
For those who believe poison ivy truly removed from a life of villainy, her deadly new mission is so diabolical that it puts her on the same playing field as Marvel. Thanos. In poison ivy #1 by DC Comics, Pamela Isley reveals that she wants revenge on the world for destroying the Earth and that the only way to save it is to cause an extinction-level event. His plan isn’t that far removed from why Thanos cut half of life from the MCU.
In the comics and the MCU, Thanos has two very different reasons for erasing half of life from existence with the Infinity Gauntlet. In the Infinity Gauntlet Saga by Jim Starlin, George Perez, and Ron Lim, the villain acquired the Infinity Stones to wipe out half of all living things in the universe to please the living embodiment of death. However, in the MCU, Thanos snapped half of all life to bring cosmic balance, believing the universe was destroying itself and needed to be reset. In poison ivy new comic, the villain takes a similar approach to the MCU’s Thanos but embarks on a deadly mission to make everything of extinct humanity.
In Poison Ivy #1 by DC Comics’ G. Willow Wilson, Marcio Takara, Arif Prianto, and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, Poison Ivy exacts revenge on humanity for destroying the Earth. After seeing her powers and connection to green degrade drastically, she uses new fungal spores to horribly transform anyone who stands in her way into a part of the wild. In the comic, she reveals that she is planning the sixth mass extinction, as she is tired of civilization being an invading species and sucking up all resources and causing permanent damage to the planet. The killer mission is a lot like Thanos.
In a way, Poison Ivy’s murderous mission isn’t all that different from Thanos in the MCU, because like the Mad Titan, she believes the destruction of humanity will bring Earth back to balance. His overall goal is noble, but his plan to help Earth is gruesome. However, unlike Thanos, Poison Ivy aims to take everyone down and everything she thinks is ruining the planet. She views human life as a detriment to Earth and plans to release her deadly new spores to cause an extinction-level event.
The complex villain’s deadly mission to destroy humanity stems from his frustration with the way Earth and its surroundings have been treated, which is the character’s usual mindset. However, with her powers and connection to green fading, she has nothing less to lose, causing poison ivy become the DC version of the MCUs Thanos and begin his quest to restore balance to Earth and stop “invading species” of humans from destroying the planet.
