Poison Ivy has the standard attack, defense and damage combat symbols and can shoot a single target from up to four squares away. Like Batman and Nightwing, Poison Ivy has two point values in which she can be played: 75 and 25 points. Her 25-point starting line comes in at click 5. For keywords, Poison Ivy has Arkham Asylum and Scientist.
Poison Ivy has a single trait, I Do Love Crashing the Party, which lets her use Mind Control. Additionally, when she’s adjacent to a friendly character with a printed team symbol, her defense gains a +1 boost. Poison Ivy’s power set consists only of standard powers that dare you to try to get close to her. She has a full dial of Stealth to make it difficult to draw lines of fire to her. Her first three clicks feature Poison, followed by three clicks of Smoke Cloud to create helpful hindering terrain. Defensively, she sports Barrier on all but clicks 4 and 6, which feature Energy Shield/Deflection. Poison Ivy’s damage slot starts with Exploit Weakness for two clicks, and Shape Change for the remainder of her dial.
Although her damage values are consistent, Poison Ivy’s best use on your force is through Mind Control. And be sure to keep plenty of hindering terrain nearby to thwart opposing characters from drawing lines of fire to her. If an opponent does try to approach, you can use Barrier to protect yourself or let them come and hit them with Poison.
