  • Good, but not quite as good as the first part.

    Yeah, this episode was pretty awesome. Everything just seemed so rushed, and I hate Batman's "Freeze Bombs", it seems like such a cop-out to have him use those every single time to catch these villains with super-natural powers. (Clayface, Ivy)

    However, Ivy was awesome. Her design looks alot better in action than her cel did. Voice-Acting was once again really wonderful on Piera's part, and I really liked some of the plant creatures she controlled.

    The only annoying thing was the backstory screw up, Poison Ivy is supposed to have engineered these plants. The fact that she got these powers through accidental science that wasn't her own weakens her as a character.

    Overall, great episode, just not as good as part 1.
