Batman: Arkham City New Character Revealed

Following today’s release of Batman: Arkham City, Rocksteady has revealed yet another hidden playable character from Gotham’s rogues gallery.

MAJOR SPOILER ALERT…The new playable character is none other than Jean-Paul Valley, also known as Azrael, the mysterious agent from the Order of St. Dumas.  Best known as the Batman of the early 90’s, Azrael’s reign as the Dark Knight was a particularly bloody one, but was ultimately cut short by the return of Bruce  Wayne.

Although Azrael won’t be a central figure in Arkham City, he serves as a liason to a fun group of side missions, whose ultimate reward is the release of Azrael as a playable character.
