TomoCon: Comic-Con ’13: Arkham Origins

Next in the Arkham asylum series is Origins a prequel inspired by Legends of the Dark Knight and Year one.

Your story begins on Christmas Eve when Blackmask declares war on batman (who is only two years into his crime fighting career ) by placing a $50 million bounty on his head. However this story is not just a origin story for Batman. Villains include some big names such as Joker and Bane; as well as some lesser known antagonists such as Copperhead.
