Ok I had planned on waiting. But last week William enlightened all to the pre-order goodness. Now, I may become a Batman Arkham Origins early-adopter. The early buy in will gives us access to nearly unbeatable one-eyed assassin – Mr. Slade Wilson. He’s more nefariously referred to as “Deathstroke The Terminator”. The embedded trailer shows nearly 5-mins of badass-on-badass action as an early unseasoned Batman faces the murderous fury of not only Deathstroke, but the on-point Deadshot also has Bats in his crosshairs. You better believe there’s someone else tugging on puppet strings for the hitmen for hire. Neither will waste a single bullet unpaid.
Are you keeping up with Warner Bros new TV show Arrow? It’s to DC Comics’s Green Arrow was Smallville was to Superman. It basically a “Year One” origin story of how Oliver “Ollie” Quinn goes from pampered and lack-wit son of one of the wealthiest families to the Green Arrow, one of the most deadly superheroes in DC universe. Currently Slade Wilson is an early ally of the burgeoning Green Arrow. Personally I’m less curious about Ollie and more interested to know how Slade will go from helping Ollie to being the #1 assassin hunting both Ollie and Bruce Wayne and anyone else that might get in the way.
