Happy Earth Day: The best way to stream and celebrate with DC Universe and Disney+

Celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd with these excellent streaming service selections.

Tomorrow is Earth Day and while we’re all stuck inside self quarantining there’s a great way to explore the Earth and its wonderful creations. How can you capture the magic of the world around us from inside? By streaming content of course! There’s a bevy of ways to celebrate and two of the best platforms to do so is on DC UNIVERSE and Dinsey+.

When it comes to DC Comics, every day is Earth Day for DC’s villain, Poison Ivy. Poison Ivy is the defender of mother Earth and also one of the most powerful characters to control the plants around her (don’t tell Swamp Thing I said that). On DC Universe, fans can read many Poison Ivy comic books from her very first appearance in Batman #181 to more recent adventures with Harley Quinn in Batman: Harley and Ivy.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

What to Read:

  • POISON IVY: CYCLE OF LIFE AND DEATH (2016)
  • SECRET ORIGINS (1986) #36 (Neil Gaiman’s retelling of Poison Ivy’s origin)
  • SECRET ORIGINS (2014) #10 (Poison Ivy’s New 52 origin)

DC Universe is, of course, a streaming service as well and Poison Ivy has made appearances on a variety of DC shows that are available now including Batman: The Animated Series, The Batman, and more recently DC’s Harley Quinn. Then there’s also Swamp Thing, who was the main character in one of AIPT’s favorite shows. As Nathan Simmons put it:

Swamp Thing was a smart slow burn of gothic horror and romance, perfectly capturing what makes the character and his world so interesting in the first place.
