World's first image of Arkham City's Robin, new details announced!
... but I dislike the model. He looks nothing like the Tim Drake from the comics. Horrible design. They 'butched' him up, probably to 'please' all the Robin-haters who only know him from the sucky 60's show and the bad movies. Also sucks that he's exclusive to some, instead of to be enjoyed by all. I like that he has his pole though. Should make for some cool moves, although I hope he can still do enough hand-to-hand combat.
That Robin actually looks cool.
This is one badass looking Robin. I always thought he should have a hooded cape like Jim Lee drew as a concept once.
Hmm the outfit is cool, but imma wait with a decision till I see his face clearly. Judging from the facing down head, his face could be anything from really flat and dumb to interesting and good-looking.
Looks cool? i call it pissing on the name well at least hes not called 117 with a yellow/green helmet.
Robin looks cool? WTF? Atleast give him some fucking hair.
He looks like they just took Cole from InFamous and stuck him in a Batman suit.
Challenge maps are completely unnecessary in this and previous game. I think the only reason they're there is potential DLC. It's hard to add something to the story, but new characters and rooms to challenge mode is easy thing.
... I thought they added some cool extra gameplay to the original game.
Finally, a Robin that doesn't look like a total flamer.
Robin should look like this! Color added too. Credit to: 'frogsplash45' from the IGN Boards, PS3 Lobby. He has actually submitted his work already to Rocksteady as I type. Hopefully they agree to make changes to his hair! http://i53.tinypic.com/2dgr... Comparison shot: http://i51.tinypic.com/91l8... Black & White w/ hair: http://i51.tinypic.com/2dlq...

... gave him some hair and color. http://img.photobucket.com/...
I think he looks really fitting to the dark, mature, and twisted world of the game. Looks like Eminem/Cole too
Yeah he does look like Cole from Infamous.
Looks like Chris O donell robin
They probably did it this way to avoid dynamic hair during combat.
He doesn't have to look exactly like Tim Drake from the comics, no one draws Tim the same every single time. I highly doubt the design had anything to do with anything in the past since Tim Drake is not Dick Grayson.
Sucky 60's show? No sir, as a kid I highly enjoyed that show. Now the spiderman one, THAT was a sucky show. On topic/ I'm on board with this Robin. Seems good enough.
@ Yi, The pole is a smart move. Batman is physically an overpowering, very strong character, so him destroying a room full of henchmen hand to hand makes way more sense than Robin, who was always rather meek. The pole might level the field a little for him.
They need to make him look like the original mainstream Robin with black hair since he's most recognizable that way. It's kinda ironic that Rocksteady made him look like Cole from Infamous. Cole had his hair switched during development. Hope they do the same to Robin!
i like this look, but why all the way to Best Buy.
I'm not sure.. it looks good, though... but I prefer Batman to be alone.
He still is alone, this is just for challenge maps :) Although I definitely had my doubts about Robin in this but he does look pretty awesome, he reminds me of Cole from inFamous quite a bit.
I kinda want batgirl =)
she was in the last game SPOILER http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Oracle is Batgirl /SPOILER END
i want to see her in her costume.
you know she is in a wheelchair right? http://batman.wikia.com/wik... read the first 5 lines
SPOILER******* Well robin (Todd) dead since this would be after The Killing Joke. So is this the third robin? Tim Drake right? IDK about the rest of the robins but from what i know Dick is the only one that actually matures into Nightwing, Todd becomes unstable and killed but eventually is brought back as Red Hood (joker how ironic). But why would he still be Robin? Anyway this is just a costume from my understanding, So yes BatGirl is still possible since it'll just be for challenges. But don't expect Batgirl in the story. the Batman Universe is so big i think, Batman Beyond is a alt. reality of Killing Joke i think (since Barbara can walk, unless they cured her) *****END SPOILER****
Um, Batgirl and Oracle might be the same person, but totally different characters. Everyone here is saying they want the Batgirl Barbara Gordon as a playable character.
I want her too. bow chicka wow wow.
Batman forever much?
Batman forever? I see no nipples on this Robin suit, buddy. lol
He's talking about the STUPID ass buzz they gave him, not the suit.
