We knew that Warner Bros. next Batman game; Batman Arkham Origins would feature a series of bounty hunters who would all be going after the Caped Crusader on one fateful holiday night. As we get closer and closer to the game’s release we are beginning to learn who the identity of these villains. Today we are lucky enough to meet the latest of Black Mask’s assassins; the infamous Copperhead!
I know what many of you are thinking; “who the heck is Copperhead!?” Good question. Copperhead is one of those characters who appears sporadically at best, but that doesn’t make him any less dangerous than the likes of Deadshot or Deathstroke. Copperhead is a master contortionist and escape artist turned serial-killer, who has gone up against the likes of not only Batman, but even Wonder Woman and Superboy, even managing to pierce the latter’s near-unbreakable skin at one point.
Copperhead is one dangerous S.O.B. and not one to be trifled with, and that makes him a perfect fit for Arkham Origins. Actually I need to stop myself here, as Copperhead doesn’t appear to be a “he” anymore. The character has undergone quite the impressive redesign from the comics, and has taken on some shall we say “feminine” traits. Despite the redesign, the character looks to remain true to the original and will be ducking, weaving and contorting her body all around the place.
Warner Bros. have released a brand new trailer for the game, featuring (you guessed it) Copperhead herself. The video shows that she is more than capable of going one on one with the Dark Knight just as well as anyone else. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments section. Do you like the new look for Copperhead? Do you care? Do you even know who Copperhead is? We want to hear all about it!
Batman: Arkham Origins is set to release on PS3, Xbox 360, WiiU and PC on October 25th, so be sure to stay tuned to Capsule Computers while we contort ourselves around all the Arkham Origins news as it becomes available.
