Am I the only one really depressed that it's Jim Lee's take on everything that gets pushed at the slightest opportunity, these days? There are plenty of takes on Poison Ivy better than his, and yet we're still seeing figures, statuettes, chess pieces and the like based on a story nearly ten years old.
You are not the only one. I have to double up on meds every time I think about it.

With Poison Ivy, I'm very happy they're sticking with the green-skinned version, rather than bringing her back to the current (Jim Lee-designed) version with normal skin. If it has to be an old Jim Lee design, then so be it, as long as she still has the look of the Green.
