Lead character artist Albert Feliu offers a breakdown of Rocksteady’s titular villain, the Arkham Knight – a brand new character in the DC Comics Universe.
Seems Like Arkham Knight is just a Clone of Red Hood a.k.a Jason Todd. Not that it's a bad thing, just wish there was a little more originality to his design.
I think there's a little more to the design than that - until we did this interview, I didn't realise the Knight was supposed to be like a full-on military commander: the armour design might not be the most inventive (but to be inventive *and* in keeping as a Batman doppelganger sounds hard), but hopefully his character will be deep enough to justify a kind-of fancy palette swap of Bats, right?
I know the developers have mentioned that Joker is definitely dead, yadda yadda, but considering the Cadmus involvement in the expanstion, could Arkham Knight be a some kind of clone created from the Joker and Batman's DNA? The Arkham series has been about Joker, almost more than it has been about Batman. Arkham Origins showed Joker's Origin and his first foray into crime in Gotham. Arkham Asylum was like Joker at his prime of his criminal career. Arkham City showed his death. Its like the whole series has been a catalogue of the Joker's career..beginning, middle, and end. So I find it hard to believe that the big finale of the series won't have something to do with the Joker. Even if its his legacy, like a clone, or something along those lines. Personally, I hope Arkham Knight is something totally new and original. But again, The Joker will be involved in some capacity...it seems obvious to me.
Where'd you draw that conclusion from? It seems like there still a lot we don't keno about the character and what we do know isn't enough to draw any conclusions from. Rocksteady really is doing a good job keeping his identity a secret.
