They already wasted Ra's in the second game

From what I know about Black Mask he could make a good head villain.

Well he has to look different since Joker pumped him full of Titan/Venom mix in the original Arkham Asylum.

Oh, thank Kong, I thought I was the only one who saw that.


So, is this going to be a prequel, then? A Year One, as it were? That could be cool, especially if they dial back the "wonderful toys". Make you deal with cruder, obviously earlier versions of his tools.

It would be interesting if they had put Simon Hurt or Hugo Strange in this game as the main villain.

Hugo was a major villain in the last game, though. People in this thread alone have said they're tired of the joker, and he's THE JOKER. You run two games in a row where a second stringer like Hugo is a main villain, you are gonna have complaints. No need to turn the Arkham franchise into The Hangover 2. :)

The thing is that Batman has a great assortment of villains so there are plenty to choose with Strange and Hurt being examples of such. Plus you also have characters like the Wrath, the Monk, Dr. Death, Rupert Thorne, Carmine Falcone, Kyodai Ken, Sin Tzu, the Red Claw, the 100, Kobra, Jezebel Jet, Athena and so on as characters they could use as the main villains.

Umm... Ok.

As someone who has read more than one comic book in my life, I DO actually know already that Batman has a great assortment of villains who could carry the role of main villain. Sadly, I'm afraid you named... None of them... In your list of Batman's Biggest Morts.

The Monk? Really? Sin Tzu? You think ANY video game will ever touch that character again after his last flop?

Shit, son, I'd rather play Batman: Arkham Appetizers, starring The Condiment King as the villain.

Now, all that said, I think Rupert Thorne would be a good character to use, maybe not as the main villain, but as a minor one. Same with Falcone. So good calls, there!
