Rank them all?


- The Joker

- Ra's Al Ghul (interchangeable)
- Dent/Two-Face (interchangeable)

- Scarecrow

- Talia
- Bane
lol, ya know, something told me you just might come back if I had the proper bait. Welcome back!

Milost, if I was you, I would have came back a bit later to make my return more dramatic. But aside from that, it's good to have you back .

Yeah, I thought about that. Hmm, let me try again.

In six weeks we'll truly see "The Bat Lobster Rises".

Enjoy the time off, brother.

I need a break as well. Heck, I recently considered whether or not to leave SHH altogether. There's too many ad hominem and blanket responses. Plus it's just getting too tiresome overall.

Ra's!

Not only did he have the more original plan, but you could understand his plan(both audibly and intellectually), too.

I love me a good meme, but if anybody thinks he sounds like that, they need to be locked in a closet for 46 days.

46 days seems arbitrary.

back on topic of the arkham games the 4th installment arkham knight looks tight! and all the talk of arkham origins being influenced by nolan, well just by watching the trailor it looks 10 times more nolan infused. especially that he is driving a tumbler-like vehicle. and you can actually drive it! just hoping that rocksteady is at the helm.

Rocksteady is in charge of making Arkham Knight, thankfully.

Random question: Why, when Bruce is stuck in Bane's prison, does he need the fear of death so he's able to make the jump to freedom? I could never wrap my head around that. Why would the lack of fear hinder him? Does anyone have any answers/theories?

It is final game for Rocksteady, they're done with Batman. Move onto non Bat games. I think other studios (WB Montreal will do another or it will be rebooted like the films.

It's just a psychosomatic thing. If he's not afraid of death (as Bane said he "welcome[s] it"), he doesn't feel the need to try his hardest.

The rope signified that even of he fell, he wouldn't die, he'd be saved.

Removing it signified he was ready to "fight longer than possible", exceed any limits he placed on himself, and then, after the climb, he jumped further than possible, because fear had found him again.

Fear gives you adrenaline. It gives you that extra edge. If you don't care if you die or actively want to die, you won't have that edge. Or subconsciously you won't give it your all. That's my take of it. I didn't have a problem with that aspect, i just didn't like the way his broken spine was fixed.

There's theories out there that are saying this might setup a Justice League or spinoff games. But it's all just rumors. Could be cool to see a Superman game by Rocksteady.

To build on what others said, having a fear of death means having a will to live, in this particular instance.
