ArkhamCity.co.uk: Who is Hugo Strange you ask? "The most dangerous man in the world! Scientist, philosopher and a criminal genius ... little is known of him, yet this man is undoubtedly the greatest organizer of crime in the world." - Bruce Wayne
From my little knowledge of Batman "canon", Strange is the only villain that knows Bruce Wayne is batman. Problem is that he is a minor bad guy that is taken as a joke by the "main" villains, who think Strange is an idiot.
Dr. Simon Hurt leder of both the Black Glove and the Club of Villains Would have been a better fit
Well a villain who knows Batman's identity sounds like a pretty good plot device. But maybe in the next one right?
Plot sound like its inspired by Batman R.I.P
Everything Hurt has done, Strange did first. Hugo Strange was the first to invade the Batcave, seize assets away from Batman, and drive Bruce Wayne to a nervous breakdown to the point that Bruce had to self-hypnotize himself to create a back-up personality. In fact, BATMAN R.I.P. would have been far superior with Hugo in Hurt's role, since it would have been far more fitting to have Batman's first arch-nemesis be his ultimate arch-nemesis.
And anyone who thinks this plot is inspired by BATMAN R.I.P. owes it to themselves to read Batman stories like STRANGE APPARITIONS and PREY, as well as an obscure classic called "Down to the Bone" from BATMAN ANNUAL #10 (I think that's the issue). Everything Hurt did (save for the occult stuff), Strange did it first and better.

Not really. I might be mistaken, but I think that Silence and Ra's Al Ghul both knows that Bruce Wayne is Batman.
I don't really count Al Ghul as he isn't trying to out Bruce as Batman. Not sure about Silence.
He was one of the very first Batman villains, created by Bob Kane himself. It is highly rumoured that Tom Hardy will play him in The Dark Knight Rises.
what's the dark knight rises? is that the 3rd batman film by nolan?
only followers of the comics will know him. Hugo strange used to be lead psych at arkham asylum in the comics. In reality, he's probably more dangerous than the joker because Strange is in COMPLETE control of his insanity
I personally like Hugo Strange and I think this game is a great way for more casual fans to take notice. I wished the trailer they showed was more of the real-time gameplay, but as a CGI movie, it looked sick!!
How can someone be in complete control of his insanity? Everywhere I look I see people saying he will be worst then Joker and I just don't see why or how so. Didn't knew him before the trailer, though. And I am not arguing, just wondering, for as I said, I don't know the character.
What happened to the Joker? He was in the last trailer. Is he still going to be in the game?
Man really no one knows about Hugo Strange?
I asked the same question. who the hell is he
who every does not know who hugo strange is well this is all i have to say you don't know batman at all your an idiot! everyone knows who strange is!
Of course, i remember him as a special character in AA!
Exactly what I wanted to say. At least they are digging into the comic universe and teaching the new people more about Batman.
This game looks more and more epic every time they release new info!
i know who he is. he used to work at arkam asylum and used to experiment on inmates hes also one of the few villains that knows bruce wayne is the batman and also he is in complete control over his insanity plus batman stated that he is the the most dangerous villains becasue he is a great planner and organizer....im a batman geek
I love how he took out Sam Fisher in the beginning!!!
I also want to know, did Christopher Lee voice him?
The trailer made me want to turn it into a movie! Forget Christian Bale! I want an AA movie!
Christian Bale will not be with us very long, so It is a nice role to be remembered by,.. He has severe throat cancer,... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Dr. Hugo Strange is a very familiar villain from the batman canon. He dates back al the way to Detective Comics #36 from 1940. He is a very gifted psychiatrist and also a talented chemist. He very cleverly deduces that Batman is Bruce Wayne and is looking for taking the batman persona for himself which is why he won't revel Wayne's secret identity.
Best part of Arkham was when Scarecrow got into Batman's mind. That scenario led to, in my opinion, one of the best scene's in game history. If Hugo Strange is the next main Bat villain this game will be infinitely sick.
Sign me up.
"He later escapes from the "city asylum" (later known as Arkham Asylum) with "five insane patients" and uses them as test subjects, turning them into hulking zombies" Isn't that almost exactly what Joker did?
