No matter what you cant to call it, it's
Well it USED to be a character trait for Ivy. It happened in Suicide Squad too, everyone was disgusted at Ivy brainwashing Count Vertigo as a sex pet and she said it was because they were afraid of a powerful woman and Waller went off on her. And I liked it a lot, because it was the kind of greasy, ugly thing a user like Ivy would do, a cool little villainous quirk.
New 52 Ivy's had a lot of the shitty person ironed out of her for some reason. I don't get it.
