But it turns out there are some that never even happened, thanks to some unlikely heroes. One story in the DC: Love is a Battlefield anthology teases a group of powerful villains who will one day conspire to cause the Ultimate Crisis, only for Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy to prevent the event from going into full effect. Starting with their earliest encounters within Arkham Asylum, the two's relationship eventually led to the creation of a full-time alliance and romance between the pair. Now in their old age, the pair reflect on some of their most memorable moments together, including one of their greatest accidental victories -- preventing the Ultimate Crisis from ever engulfing their universe. As the pair recalls, a group of villains ended up one day uniting to form a new, final version of the Legion of Doom -- now known as the Injustice Lords -- the alliance of Lex Luthor, Ra's Al Ghul, Brainiac, Joker and Black Adam had united to settle the war between good and evil once and for all. The group secretly planned to strike the Justice League in one fell swoop, with Ra's even utilizing the waters of the Lazarus Pits to create restoration pods to help create the deadliest, most powerful army of villains possible.

Yet, while the two seem perfect for each other today, their romance took a long time to bloom in the comics.

From the beginning, Poison Ivy encouraged Harley to leave the Joker, pointing out how toxic their relationship really was. Their relationship was further explored in the comic books when their comic book counterparts met up in Harley Quinn 1. Again, the plant and clown-themed criminals find they work well together, but Ivy is still unable to get Harley to leave the Joker.
