Here's what I'd do.

A few years before the return of Bruce Wayne, a young talented summa cum laude graduate from Gotham U, with a degree in genetics, a minor in biochemistry and an interest in botany, is hired straight out of university for Wayne Enterprise's GMO department. Unfortunately for the young Pamela, her new boss is more interested in her curvy body than her brilliant mind, as he constantly disregards her suggestions.
As the years roll on, she is constantly reminded of her bosses misogyny, as he will even steal her good ideas and brush of the act as something she should expect in a man's world. But she bites the sour apple, as Wayne Enterprise's GMO department has been her dream as far back as she can remember wanting to help the world.

Then, few few months before Bruce's return, she finds herself at an office party at a harbor bar, surrounded by colleagues. Not terribly bad, but she decides to catch some fresh air, only to find that obnoxious boss out there pawing at a female intern screaming for help.
She breaks them up and the intern runs away with tears in her eyes, only for her boss to turn his attention on her. Resisting, she's promptly told to have some appreciation for being hired, despite him "obviously" being her superior in all respects.
Forcefully she pushes him off her as he grabs for her breasts and he retaliates with a fist to her face, knocking her unconscious so she falls backwards over the balcony, crashing into the icy waters below.

Hours later, she pulls her shivering blue body up from the water, barely alive. And as she collapses in the scrubs, her face plants itself firmly in a large poison ivy plant and despite the burning she doesn't move as her body starts giving up... A labored tiny breath leaves her lips as she seemingly die, only for her body to recoil from the plants burn, her screaming almost like a baby being born. Camera zooms out as she chuckles and whispers "thanks" on the dark Gotham shore.

From then on, Pamela Isley is never heard from again. But a new bio-terrorist seems to start striking all over the globe using infiltration, seemingly unknown biochemical compounds and leaving only a green spray-painted tag spelling "IVY".
And one day, this bio-terrorist sees something while infiltrating a GMO test site in Africa: Her old boss getting an award for his brilliant solutions...
A solution the "dead" Pamela invented while at Wayne Enterprise...
And the award is given by Bruce Wayne, the womanizing playboy...

Within days, Gotham starts experiencing extreme cases of asthma caused by a strange pollen, vegetables and fruits rots in minutes after contacts with some enzyme in the wind and the slums seem to be overgrowing with moss that burns the skin...
IVY has come home, and she's bringing all the money and research she stole while stopping powerful men from perverting her Mother Nature. Not to mention her infiltration skills, which uses every inch of that body to bring men into her power.
In her sights: The most powerful man of all, Bruce Wayne! And the city he loves.

Game theory suggest Batman might be the villain, the Joker the hero and Alan Moore an even bigger genius that one might think. Read this and discuss away. And believe me, you'll like the article. ^^

Why does he look like that vampire from twilight? Hope he doesn't shimmer in sunlight.

@Nova`Prime`: I already pointed out the fact that some heroes are the same. ^^

Maybe they should work out a system to describe each heroines physical attributes, height and weight.

Show us a few examples of what you mean?
That gonna be pretty hard, considering no one has really made the aforementioned test.

Disregarding artists individual styles and the younger characters, all women in comics seem to be proportionally the same. Only costume, hair and eyes seem to be individual, while legs, hips, stomachs, bust and arm seem to be the same. In fact, if you put 'em in the same regular clothing and covered up their head, then nobody would be able to tell most of them apart. The men on the other hand have various amounts of muscle mass, height and body fat, which makes them easier to tell apart (though some seem to be physical copies of each other).
Compared to the men in comics, they seem very 2 dimensional. And why is that? Do artist feel that clothing and hair are the only physical definitions of women? Is just easier to define a woman based on clothing? Or are they afraid to define a physical body that might not be beautiful or sexy in 10 years?
I for one would like to see women that are more individual in appearance, instead of the ones now, which have one body with interchangeable heads. 
Whats your opinion?

@odinforce: Now that they've been noticed, it's probably not hip to take over the world anymore. ^^
