Batman: Arkham Origins features New 52′s female Copperhead

Thursday, 18th July 2013 22:29 GMT By Brenna Hillier

In line with the version seen in DC Comics’ The New 52, the Copperhead of Batman: Arkham Origins is a snake-like woman.

Warner Bros. Montreal Eric Holmes revealed the super villain in a panel at San Diego Comic Con. Warner Bros. Montreal’s use of the character has inspired further appearances in upcoming comics, Polygon.

A video was shown of the new character in action; check it below.

Copperhead was first introduced to the DC universe in 1968, as a male character in a snake costume who used the tail to strangle assassination targets. The Arkham Origins vision has her as a clawed contortionist, and her motion capture performances require three actors, including a Cirque Du Soleil acrobat and a martial artist.

Warner Bros. Montreal also introduced two new Batman skins – Batman One Million and Worst Nightmare Batman. Polygon reports the latter will be unlocked only by “absolute masters” have “drained the game” with all achievements.

The developer teased the possibility of Batgirl in-game, but said Robin won’t appear due to the timeline; Origins is a prequel.

Batman: Arkham Origins is due on PC, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360 in October; a Vita tie-in called Blackgate is also on the way.

    @4 Obviously a snake themed villain. What more do you really need to know? Personally, I like the fact that they’re using some of the more obscure villains from Batman and the DC universe.
