Batman: Arkham Origins gets a Copperhead

Arkham Origins is going to look at Batman’s gritty, dark, rugged past. He’s young, brash and a bit off-the-rails.

However, he’s still got to have his head screwed on because there are 8 assassins tracing him.

The eight assassins have been a bit of a mystery to date, but at Comic Con, WB have confirmed just one of those assassins. Copperhead.

No, really. Copperhead.

I’m not kidding, that’s his name.

And yes, he does have copper for a head.

Ok, I admit, I would rather have a gold head, or a platinum head. I mean, that would be me. I’d love that if I had to have any sort of … ‘head’ but I don’t and that’s great.

But if I did, it wouldn’t be copper.

Here’s a trailer because trailers always make things better..

Better than me anyway
