- "Well, I can respect your opinion. Sadly, I'm not good at rejection. I'm afraid you'll have to die."
- ―Jason Woodrue to Pamela Isley.[src]
Dr. Jason Woodrue was a corrupt scientist who once worked for and was funded by Wayne Enterprises. After Wayne Enterprises fired him and cut his funding, Woodrue moved to a remote South American lab to continue his experiments. He used plant toxins to create Venom, a super-serum that enhanced the proportions of a human subject. His first subject was Antonio Diego, who was turned into Bane. Woodrue planned on selling similar "Super Soldiers" to members of the "Un-United Nations".
Dr. Pamela Isley, who worked for Woodrue, discovered his illegal experiments and Woodrue offered her to join him. But she was appalled by his experiments and threatened to report him: "When I get through, you won't be able to get a job teaching high school chemistry", as well as called him a "psycho". Woodrue, who was, in his own words, "not good at rejection", attacked Isley and threw her into a shelf that was full of plant chemicals. He believed her dead, but Isley arose hours later, transformed into Poison Ivy by the chemicals and Venom. Ivy killed Woodrue with a poisonous kiss and burned down his lab.
Behind the Scenes
