Killer Croc And Lady Shiva Batman’s Last Two Assassins?
Batman: Arkham Origins. Younger Batman, bigger Gotham, more villains then you can hurl a sack of batarangs at. That just about sums the game up and hey, the game releases this week but we’re still receiving odd little story rumours. Weird.
Batman is supposed to go up against 8 assassins through the course of this game. So far we’ve Deadshot, Deathstroke, Copperhead, Firefly and the Electrocutioner. Joker, Penguin, Mad Hatter and Anarky are in the mix too. The former two may or may not be amongst the assassins, it hasn’t quite been made clear. The latter two are definitely side mission fodder. Black Mask is the one orchestrating it all so does he count as an assassin? Conventional logic says not really.

IF you’re good at arithmetic then it’s very clear that I’m not really sure whether we’ve met our 8 assassins quota with the revealed villains yet or not. The following may or may not be a spoiler, it depends really but two leaked screenshots suggest we may yet see two more villains in the game.
Namely, Killer Croc (who we saw in Arkham Asylum) and Lady Shiva who we haven’t seen anywhere. She is however interwoven into Batman’s history, popping up a number of times as both ally and enemy but that’s because she’s a fist for hire. An assassins specialising in martial arts. Check out the screens below.
These could just be unlockable character bios or they may feature in side missions but Shiva certainly appears to be a worthwhile addition if you’re looking to assemble some assassins to assassinate Batman.
Batman: Arkham Origins is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 25, with the PC and Wii U versions delayed till next month.
