Once upon a time, Copperhead was a dude in a snake suit who could crush people to death. In DC's the New 52 comic book series, Copperhead is an actual snake woman who's quite possibly an even more fearsome prospect than her predecessors. She's set to feature as an enemy in Batman: Arkham Origins.

She'll be one of eight assassin's out to kill Batman on Christmas Eve at the behest of Black Mask and the $50 million bounty he's put on the Dark Knight's head. Assassins confirmed so far include Deathstroke, Deadshot, Bane, Joker, Black Mask and his crew, and now Copperhead.

You can check out Copperhead in the video below, and there's three screens to take a look at too. Batman: Arkham Origins is set to launch for current-gen platforms on October 25th, 2013. To find out more about Bat's latest outing, his new detective mode and combat options, give our latest preview a read.

Another female character in a not exactly practical outfit. Oh well, comic books.

Awesome, I'm a big fan of Batman. It's rare that comic book games go above just an average game. But the Arkham series is astounding.

How about we go back to the "old" 700ish issues instead? New 52 is just yet another reboot marketing gimmick

Anyone know if this is coming to Xbox One? Otherwise this will be my last game to finish off the 360 and what great game to finish the end of an era.

@2 The outfit allows her to move more swiftly. ;)

Sooo looking forward to this. Just finished AA twice and moving on to City, Origins I'm sure will be amazing.

Everyone. If you like Batman animated movies, check out Batman Under the Red Hood. It's graphic as hell and has some serious twists in it.

@8, it is an eh reboot of the universe for the most part. It loose's one of DC's strongest elements though, it's legacy. The DC universe had build it's self up very well with the passing of the mantle kind of approach (the flash being the best example there, or the batman side kicks, though they have their own series, there growth is no longer there, and the series is in a sense rushing through some of it, hell, red robbins already here).
There's been some good things, but allot of the new 52 stuff has just been eh.

I thought it was 12 Assassin's before? Could be wrong though.

Why Copperhead? Of ALL fucking characters. I love the fact that the Arkham series has introduced some of the lesser-known villains to the mainstream, but seriously?

As for the New 52 argument, I was dead set against it, especially considering it fucked up Morrison's saga, but it's not as bad as I thought it'd be. Hell, the whole "miraculous cure for Babs" thing pissed me off, and I've never been a fan of Gail Simone, but that first arc? Loved it.

Main thing I don't like about it though is Snyder's sudden rise to prominence. He did great writing DG Bats, but his Bruce stories are overrated to fuck. The Night of the Owls saga was possibly the most infuriating stunt since the tie-ins to Batman RIP (loved RIP, but the tie-ins were so poorly handled from an editorial and chronological perspective that it was a joke)

@10, it sounds like Khary Payton (Cyborg from Injustice/Teen Titans).
He's doing voice-over work on the game, but not sure if they have confirmed a role for him or not.

This is looking good.

Heard they actually did something with Aquaman in the New 52, which sounded impressive as that SH did not seem so super. Don't see the problem with this villain. Looks like a cool adversary :)
