 The Dream of Poison Ivy

Sometime back in the past Poison Ivy found she had a new gift granted to her from the Green, she could enter into her own dreams consciously. In this dream she found a war-born child who she taught to love and create life and then it was all taken away, she was kicked out of her perfect world. We find out that she is after Clark, Bruce, and Dianna because one of them is holding enough solar energy to be a gateway from the dream world and the real world. Which is a relief because I didn't think that Poison Ivy knew the true identities of Batman, Superman or Wonder Woman and I have spent the last four issues trying to figure this out.

Mercy Dream

We jump back to our trinity facing off with Mongul in the dream land, but what they didn't know is that the Mercy dream they are all in is in fact Mongul's dream world to control and what they experienced was created by his child to let her/him into their hearts so they could find a way out of this dream world. Mongul and his child used Poison Ivy when she infiltrated their dream world, manipulated her into loving the child and Mongul kicked her out of the dream. Mongul knew that Poison Ivy would try to get, what she thinks to be, her child back and in doing so would create a way for him to escape as well.

The Confessional

Finally, we get some answers! This issue is by far my favorite of the arc so far, and I love how one issue can flip that switch. Honestly this book was on my list of books I was considering dropping and I am so glad this issue came about when it did. Manapul did a great job all around with this book and I cannot wait to see what happens now that the dream is over.
