Harley/Ivy Relationship

So if you are fan of the relationship between these can you tell me what makes it interesting (not being a jerk). The relationship never worked for me it just was there but maybe I’m not seeing something, just curious

Ivy is serious and Harley is funny so they work as a duo. Whereas with the Joker, he’d get mad at her for stealing his spotlight when she was funny.

Honestly in the Animated Series , before the comics, I always thought they had a sister kind of bond. Ivy had spats of dissappoint with Harley & her hyenas but would always take up for her against other baddies including Joker & Livewire. Not to mention, Ivy helped Harley get away from Joker’s abusiveness. Always seemed Harley was the little sister lol Like others have said tho, the seriousness of Ivy & craziness of Harley is also why it works. But again I always enjoyed the sister-type bond they had.

I’m still waiting for Batman to confess his love for Harley Quinn. I think they would make a good quintuple of batty, but nice kids.

Their both Drs & both want to change but just can’t help it. They’ve went good plenty of times but their destined to be villains & always get sucked back in. Catwoman is secret buddies with em too & I love those 3 together.

I don’t dig the Ivy relationship personally I grew up on BTAS, so for me they’re like sisters, total BBFs. Its weird they would be together to me. But I also grew up with her obsessed and in love with Joker

Its definitely been not given enough focus. But the new Harley TAS might fix some of those problems

Poison Ivy takes things seriously and cares for plants when no one else does. She’s the lone wolf who inspires confidence in Harley. Harley, on the other hand, is in it to have fun. She tends to get into trouble, but Ivy loves having her around. Ivy generally hates humanity and just wants to be alone with her plants, but she genuinely enjoys Harley’s company, and even though they’re villains, they have it themselves to make each other better people.

@Dcgoddessofmayhem: For the series, they’ve been described as best friends, not a romantic couple. But honestly, as a Harley and Ivy shipper, I prefer it this way. Originally, their relationship was only hinted at, then the New 52 came out and they were pretty much romantically involved from the start. I’d rather like to see their relationship evolve over time.

I think Poison Ivy and Swamp Thing would make any other couple a little green with envy.

I love them together. BTAS is where this couple actually began anyway (purely implied, obviously they couldn’t make it official back then), Paul Dini said a relationship was meant to be implied in the series.

I prefer it to happen over time too, though. Harley & Ivy works best AFTER Harley & Joker, not without imo. That way, Ivy can nurture Harley (like her plants, lol), and Harley gets to bask in that after the abuse she faced with Joker. Though Ivy has her moments, still being a supervillain after all. Basically BTAS and the Dini/Timm Harley & Ivy comic is my absolute favorite portrayal and would only be improved if they were actually allowed to portray Harley & Ivy like they wanted.

Eh. It started in the animated series. Ivy gave her the shot so they could be partners. So Harley wouldn’t die touching Ivy. Then writers went where they went. They are good together, but I think it holds them both back some. Idk. They’re a good pair, but both are great on their own. That Ivy comic series was really good, but too short(great art). And Harley is obviously a super star.
