Yeah, that's right.





Azrael is the name of several fictional characters in the DC Comics universe. They are a group of assassins who were created by The Order of St. Dumas to "enforce god's will". The name is from the traditional Angel of Death.

The character first appeared in the series Batman: Sword of Azrael, as Jean-Paul Valley, in 1992.

He then became a supporting character in the monthly Batman titles, eventually taking over the role of Batman through the Knightfall, Knightquest, and KnightsEnd story arcs.

The subsequent Azrael series, chronicling Valley's battles against the Order of St. Dumas, ran for 100 issues between 1995 and 2003. Starting with issue #47, it was retitled Azrael: Agent of the Bat in an attempt to boost sales by tying the series in with the rest of the Batman mythos, including Azrael as part of the team of Batman, Robin, and the new Batgirl (Cassandra Cain).

Also when Robin makes his appearance... it wasn't bad. It was pretty badass actually. Changed my perspective on the notion of a realistic take on Robin. The hood helps a bunch and the fact that it's roided up 20 year old Tim Drake and not 8 year old Dick Grayson makes a difference as well

My favorite character in the Batman universe other than Batman!!!
Canon108 - 10/18/2011, 3:44 PM
Now all Rocksteady has to do is create a Superman game to go hand in hand with the 2 Batman games they developed...
SinAllnite - 10/18/2011, 3:45 PM

WesleyGibson - 10/18/2011, 4:03 PM

Someone post this it gives the info on Azrael in Arkham City.

Very INTERESTING
MaddMonkk - 10/18/2011, 4:25 PM
I was hoping it was a villain or a character outside the Bat family. Deathstroke or Green Arrow would have been awesome.This is very cool to but a little expected. just a little.
95 - 10/18/2011, 4:37 PM
@Curmudgeon

Through the internet I know that he was Batman's replacement after Bane broke his back.
However, besides that, I've not read a single comic with him in it, heck, this is my first time seeing a picture of his appearance.

Just finished posting an article about MORE Arkham City secrets that may have something to do with that Warner Bros. game with that unidentified DC Comics superhero. IF YOU DON'T LIKE SPOILERS! DO NOT READ THE ARTICLE!
