Is that a tasty human, my sweet?
(Artist is Dwenda (Hentai Foundry link]. Character is Poison Ivy, from the DC Universe.)

I like it because I love Ivy and it’s a beautiful piece of art, but honestly I feel like she’d have pubic hair. I somehow just don’t see her spending a lot of time waxing or shaving. Ivy (depending on the writer of course) doesnt even consider herself human, so I don’t really picture her abiding by American societal beauty standards in regard to body hair. Especially beauty standards that are, for better or worse, associated with a lot of sexist baggage. And I say this as someone who chooses to regularly prune all her body hair - I dont have a problem with it, I just dont think Ivy would do it.

Oh, I certainly agree with you. There are, as I see it, two ways to view Ivy’s current state of defoliation. Well, really only one root cause, regardless, but one explanation with actual merit.
As for Ivy abiding by modern American standards of beauty - yes, exactly. I don’t doubt that it’s all wrapped up in the various issues -heck, libraries - that modern superhero comics have with the depiction of women. I mean, in all the comics I’ve read, the topic of women shaving has come up precisely twice.
Once, in Power Girl #9, wherein she shaves her legs with heat vision. (I recommend the entire Gray/Palmiotti/Conner run of Terra and Power Girl to anyone who wants to get into comics. Start here, finish here.)

The other time, as a running joke in Adam Warren’s Empowered. If the titular heroine doesn’t shave, the effect through her hypermembrane supersuit is rather embarrassing.

(Picture not actually showing the effect, but does mention shaving).
So yeah, definitely not something that’s regularly brought up in mainstream comics. I vaguely wonder how much of it is the conflux of super skimpy costumes and regulations against showing pubic hair. But that’s mainly passing the bar to the the government, as opposed to the comic creators.
A possible Doylist justification for Ivy’s lack of body hair is that she’s usually presented as a femme fatale. There’s a pressure there for her to be conventionally attractive, so the characters (and by extension, the readers) can be expected to fall under the sway of her beauty and charms. Now, Ivy further muddies the water here by producing various hypnotic substances. Maybe she produces a pheromone that makes everyone who smells her think she’s absolutely stunning. Whatever, there are tons of ways to explain the particulars in universe.
The real problem with that justification is that, well, there are tons of female characters who dress and act like femme fatales, regardless of how they have otherwise been conceived. Who remember’s Huntress’ ab window?

Until the background sexiness in superhero comics gets pruned back a whole lot, then yes, I think folks should absolutely look at their comics (and comic porn) and think ‘wait, would so-and-so trim their naughty bits?’
Anyway, this is really long-winded and meandering  way to say ‘I agree with your point. With pictures.’ Thanks for commenting!

Morrigan got totally wasted last night, so I stole her clothes (and her hair color) and came instead!

But freedom from what? All those pesky delusions that other people actually exist, and thus you shouldn’t murder them, or think they’re demons?
