Batman as Frollo, Poison Ivy as Esmeralda
I always had my fetish for a Batman/Poison Ivy fan pairing of sorts where Batman must struggle against a lust on Poison Ivy. Batman is no self-righteous villain like Dom Claude Frollo. The whole setting would have Batman struggling with his role as a punisher of the wicked while Poison Ivy has truly cast a spell upon him. So it had me thinking what if Poison Ivy's kiss on Batman actually had cast a spell so dangerous, Batman fears the end of him has come because he's now lusting after Poison Ivy?
Batman is a vigilante and anti-hero. He keeps the city safe. He would be a righteous version of Dom Claude Frollo, but a much younger version of the villain. Like Frollo, he has fallen into the dilemma of falling for a woman he believes would bring to his doom. He is now in a dilemma unlike any before and it's Poison Ivy. Just one kiss was enough to bring Batman to a serious psychological dilemma.
I can view Poison Ivy as a twisted version of Esmeralda. Esmeralda in the novel was one who was concerned about her people, the gypsies. The theme is taken in most of Esmeralda's incarnations. She is a villain with noble goals that is, to save nature itself but she takes it the wrong way. She is an anti-villain... she has noble traits and goals but she takes it the wrong way. Unlike Esmeralda, she casts the spell with that kiss.
I always wish DC would expand this concept or two, have Batman and Poison Ivy have more sexual tensions than usual.
