They’re really pushing the Slade/Batman conflict pretty hard with the marketing of “Arkham Origins,” this October’s prequel to Warner Brother’s pair of “Arkham” games. Even if the initial announcement out of the publisher was that Black Mask would be the main heavy, one-eyed super assassin Deathstroke has been the one featured most prominently up to this point.
Which is weird, because he’s better known for spending his time trying to murder the Teen Titans.
If you’ll recall, “Arkham Origins” will pit a younger Batman against a group of hired killers, brought in to take him down and allow Black Mask to continue building his criminal empire.
