Alright folks here is another VC for the Batman franchise and this time its for this Seductive Villainess of the Plant World namely POISON IVY! Unlike other known Batman characters Poison Ivy's VA debut was in the DCAU namely the highly renowned Batman the Animated series (among various other shows) were she was voiced by Diane Pershing. And let me say this right now on how Poison Ivy's VA history definitely had a nice start as Diane was quite fitting for Ivy's seductive persona. Granted Ivy's role in the show is a bit more than just a pretty face (among other things) and Diane was able to handle Ivy's more dramatic and serious-minded moments just fine as well. Basically its another fine example over how exceptional the voice acting in the DCAU can be.

In the not-as-successful (but has its fair share of fans) The Batman Ivy was voiced by Piera Coppola and I am aware that this is not exactly a really renowned take on Poison Ivy as viewers have complained on how this lacks the sultry appeal that Poison Ivy is normally known for. While I admit I do agree that this does not have as much appeal as Ivy is normally known for and is kind of cute at best but when viewed on its own merits its not that bad though. Why do I say this you ask? Simple its a bit more due to Piera's overall performance as Ivy here as while like I said it lacks the sultry charm that the other ladies whom have voiced Ivy but I do like on how Piera's performance does have a nice playful tone which does work with what the show was trying to go for. While I do admit that Piera's work is probably the weakest of the Poison Ivy performances here its still by no means a bad one though.

In the fairly renowned 2009 Video game Batman Arkham Asylum while some of the DCAU voice cast were able to reprise their roles in the game Poison Ivy was not one of them as Tasia Valenza took over the role. However the good news is that Tasia is quite a natural alternative as she was able to give a nice sultry tone for Poison Ivy just fine in this game. But to be fair this is no surprise as Tasia has a pretty good history of doing lower sultry voices for lovely ladies in video games and she is known for doing them well and this is by no means an exception. Tasia's overall performance is a nice mixture of sultry and insanely sinister and is another fine example of the game's rather stellar voice acting.

In Batman Brave and the Bold over the course of 2010 there were a couple of episodes that Ivy appeared in and was voiced by different ladies in both episodes. Ivy's initial appearance in "Chill of the Night" in which she was voiced by Jennifer Hale in which this sounds like a very good casting idea as her voice definitely works for the role the only problem is that Ivy had a rather small role in that episode in which she only had a few lines but the performance is very good nevertheless. In "The Mask of Matches Malone" Ivy was voiced by Vanessa Marshall and while you can kind of tell the difference in voices one can easily tell that Vanessa was trying to do her performance in spirit with Jennifer Hale's and for the most part she succeeded. Vanessa's overall voice and performance also by all means worked with the role as well (and fortunately Ivy had a somewhat bigger role in this episode in which fortunately Vanessa had more to work with and she did well with it.) Overall I am not entirely sure whom to pick as most of these ladies did very well with this role.

(Note: Cyndi Williams voiced Poison Ivy in DC Universe Online and while her voice for Ivy is not bad but it was perhaps a little too raspy. However to be fair Cyndi's performance definitely suited on how the game was more trying to go for Ivy's insanely motherly love for her plants. Not quite the best performance of Poison Ivy here but Cyndi's work on the role is definitely not the worst.)

It will probably never happen, but I think Shelley Calene-Black would do well as Poison Ivy. Her voice is very seductive and cunning.

Whoa, tough choice here. Very tough indeed as most of these voices are making me fall in love with Ivy. I'm serious, she sounds so sexy.

My favourite has to be Vanessa with Diane 2nd & Tasia 3rd.

Piera and Cyndi do well.

Laura should voice Ivy again sometime as I thought she could've been slightly better.

Wasn't a fan of Jennifer or Alyssa.

For another sexy/intelligent take on Poison Ivy, I think Janyse Jaud would be a natural and perfect fit.

But I find the idea of a creepier and more threatening Ivy intreaguing. To make a nice balance between sexy and evil, Nika Futterman would probably be my choice.
said at 3:27 PM on Thu Aug 28 2014
@Fairfieldfencer - If it wasn't for the fact that she already voiced a Batman character (Catwoman) I'd totally agree with you.

I'm just afraid she'd just use the same voice

1-: Diane Pershing: She was intelligent, could be humorous, sultry, and evil with more layers to Ivy's personality than you would think.
2-: Tasia Valenza: I like it, but she only focuses on Ivy's sexy side, which works for the less humanistic version. She also sounds a bit forced in Arkham City IMHO.
3-Cyndi Williams-: She really nailed Ivy's creepy side. I love it, one of the best DCUO performances.
4-Vanessa Marshall: Pretty good, sounds a bit more posh than the other VA's here.
5-: Jennifer Hale: Another good voice, but it's a little generic. I would like to see Jen reprise the role and see if she can make the voice sound more unique.
6-: Alyssa Milano: I don't mind it, she's a bit forced at points but the voice itself fits the character fine.
7-: Piera Coppola: I never liked this version of the character, and she's over acting here.
8-: Laura Bailey: Unfortunately has no material to work with, and the voice is completely generic that doesn't fit Ivy at all.
said at 3:27 PM on Thu Aug 28 2014
@chaosincarnate - To be fair, Tasia didn't have much to do in City anyway. So I'm willing to overlook the forced-ness there.
said at 6:01 PM on Fri Aug 29 2014
@HyperVoiceActing Oh, it doesn't ruin her performance for me. I quite like her overall, but she felt like an emulation of Diane more than anything.

1. Diana Pershing - Sounds sexy, smart, evil, and fun. Everything you could want in a bad girl!
2. Taiza Valensia - The most seductive voice for the character.
3. Piera Coppola - Really underrated. She does very well as a teenage Ivy.
4. Venessa Marshall - An evil version of her Mary Jane Watson voice, which is very sexy.
5. Laura Bailey - For what she had, she sounded great!
6. Jennifer Hale - A pretty generic voice for a bit part.
7. Cyndi Williams - SCARY! Make it go away!
8. Alyssa Milano - Sorry, but Alyssa's not cut out to be a voice actress.
said at 3:29 PM on Thu Aug 28 2014
@Galactic_Cyrus - Like you said, it was a bit part. So I'm not sure if it's really fair to properly criticize her.
said at 2:31 PM on Wed Dec 10 2014
@HyperVoiceActing Who, Jennifer Hale? It's alright, but I've heard that voice from her before and it's just kinda generic to me now.
said at 8:46 PM on Wed Aug 21 2013
1) LAURA BAILEY (Finally one of my castings for a character happens in real life. And let me tell you it doesn't disappoint! IMO)
2) Tasia Valenza (Once again the Arkhamverse brings a great voice to the table.)
3) Jennifer Hale (Jenny at some of her fine, fine work)
4) Diane Pershing (Oldie, but a very goodie!)
5) Vanessa Marshall (Tough call but I'm going with Marshall)
said at 1:09 PM on Thu Mar 7 2013
I liked what The Batman did to a lot of it's villains, particularly Riddler and Killer Croc. But Poison Ivy was a real disappointment. Naturally, I think Piera is the weakest. I don't really care for Cyndi's or Laura's performance either.
said at 6:32 PM on Tue May 14 2013
@VctrBnsn I haven't said who I do like yet. Well, Pershing was the first, and still sounds great. Jennifer and Vanessa are equally good, but I guess I'll go on the Arkham game bandwagon and say Tasia is my fav. Alyssia was OK, but not great.
said at 4:05 PM on Mon Oct 7 2013
@VctrBnsn Disagree. I think Ivy was one of the most interesting villains the show had.
said at 8:38 PM on Fri Mar 1 2013
Tasia Valenza.
said at 3:25 PM on Sun Dec 2 2012
I'm gonna go with Tasia Valenza. Everyone else here was good and the voice from Batman Dark Tomorrow was alright.
said at 6:26 AM on Fri Sep 28 2012
I liked them all equally except Alyssa and Piera who I thought their voice was too high for Ivy's seducing demeanor.
said at 1:49 AM on Mon Oct 29 2012
@TrippedB Piera's is not meant to be seductive, though.
said at 2:59 PM on Sun Jul 29 2012
I'm going to go out on a limb and vote for Cyndi Williams, her Ivy sounds more motherly, which is what I think of her since she loves her plants so much..

1. Tasia Valenza- I thought she was the only one that was really captured the seductive side the best. I will admit at times she can go over the top with it but I still enjoy her. Plus she captures the "motherly" side of Ivy as well.

2. Vanessa Marhsal- It does have a sultry side to it and you can hear a caring side too. I think it's somewhat underrated.

3. Jen Hale- she was kinda typecasted here but if it ain't broke, don't fix it. If she was given more material I might move her to first.

4. Piera Coppola- Poeple say because it's younger it doesn't have the sultry feel but when I was younger (which I was younger then the character in the show) I thought it did, though now I seee the complaints but she had a good playful side which can sometimes make up for a sexy side. Either way it's still a good voice and I can see her become the Ivy we all know.

5. Diane Pershing- Meh, sounds flat at times but does have a seductive side. I think she got better in New Adventures but haven't see that show in a while.

6. Cyndi Williams- I actually like the raspy voice, still not as seductive as some of the others but not bad. I do like how it's creepy yet motherly, it's something others didn't do and I actually like it.

7. Laura Bailey- I'm a little underwhelmed, I wished she used more of her Lust voice since this take is a little generic. I know Laura can do better and she has done better sultry voices. Though maybe her getting two lines is also holds her back. Though I still do like it though.

8. She's trying too hard to sound scary and she doesn't sound scary...or sultry...or caring...in fact she's more generic then anything else. Young Justice isn't really flattering to Batman villains is it?

@Music Meister Yeah, Tasia ftw. :)
said at 6:25 PM on Sat Jul 21 2012
Pershing. Though the others are good too. I don't think Ivy's ever had a bad voice.
said at 12:03 PM on Sat Apr 21 2012
Diane Persching for me. Seductive but distinctive. The rest are too generic. Tasia Valenza wasn't too bad but she goes a bit overboard.

Tasia Valenza for Ivy. She sounds perfect for a femme fatale like Ivy.
said at 4:11 AM on Tue Apr 17 2012
@Anicomicgeek Still sticking with Tasia Valenza, though I do adimt that Jennifer Hale, Vanessa Marshall, and Alyssa Milano were good, too.
said at 1:58 PM on Sat Jul 21 2012
Well, I must admit, despite Lego Batman being a lgihter game and the awful green pun, Laura Bailey was good as Ivy. Then again, we was also Lust in FMA and Lust was a femme fatale, too.XD Sticking with Valenza, though.

I meant to say, "Then again, she was also Lust in FMA and Lust was a femme fatale, too."

Most "The Batman" fans actually like the show's Ivy. She doesn't have the adult sex appeal, sure, but her character is interesting, and Coppola does a great job voicing her.

Diane Pershing is the Ivy I heard on the Batman TV show I watched growing up, so I kind of have her voice implanted in my mind as Poison Ivy. She just is. I will admit, Tasia Valenza did an AWESOME job as Poison Ivy. I thought she was Diane Pershing when I first heard her voice (I didn't have a comparison like I do here)
So, it's a tie for me :P

Tasia Valenza. Her Poison Ivy was very dark while being super hot at the same time.

Pershing and Valenza have the same voice but I have to give it to Tasia (That's what she said) because the T Rating of Arkham Asylum gave her a chance to be much more seductive. It's not Pershing's fault,though

As much as I wanna go with Diane Pershing out of love for the animated series....I got to go with Tasia Valenza here. She has the perfect sound of sultry and sexy that define Ivy perfectly.
