This coming Valentine’s Day, DC Comics will be releasing a romantic anthology titled Love is a Battlefield. It quite the fitting title, seeing as though Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy are gracing the cover art and getting choked out by a killer mutant plant. The series will also feature other notable power couples celebrating their love in the DC Universe, but seeing Harley Quinn and Ivy together in mainstream continuity is huge.
Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn have long been gal pals in Gotham City, ever since they met in Batman: The Animated Series. When Harley made the transition into the DC Comics Universe that friendship continued, and the two would often tear up the town with other rogues such as Catwoman. However, the bond between Ivy and Harley would grow and blossom, becoming something deeper. However, their relationship has always been something they’ve been pretty non-exclusive about. In spite of this, other versions of the characters such as the Harley and Ivy of the Injustice Universe have recently fallen in love and just got married in Tom Taylor’s Injustice: Zero Year #8. Not only that, but Ivy just ran away from her own wedding to Kiteman be with Harley in the second season finale of the Harley Quinn animated series on HBO Max.
