“Black bat screeching in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise”
[Shittier version of Blackbird by the Beatles]
An anon kindly asked me to give some info on a few of DC’s greatest assassins because of the 8 assassins that will be one of the focuses of the upcoming Batman game, Arkham Origins.
Deathstroke has already been confirmed as one of the assassins hired by the Black Mask to eliminate Bats.
Here are some of the possibilities (keep in mind that Arkham Origins will be a prequel to the other two games so anything goes):
So Lady Shiva is a martial arts grandmaster who specializes in taking down opponents with her bare hands. Her origins revolve around her and her mission to track down and kill her sister’s murderer. She eventually becomes a master assassin.
Merlyn is Green Arrow’s arch-nemesis. He has all the skills that his green counterpart does, only he’s EVILLLLLL. Merlyn’s second encounter with the Green Lantern was actually during Merlyn’s attempt to assassinate Batman. So it’d make a lot of sense if he was trying to kill the Bats in the upcoming game.
He’s a highly trained assassin who helped train a young Bruce Wayne in different forms of combat. He wanted to create the perfect assassin by training children and stuff. He failed miserably so he decided to raise and train his own child. So he banged Lady Shiva and made Cassandra Cain aka Batgirl aka Black Bat.
The Mad Dog:
One of David Cain’s earlier failures, the Mad Dog was basically just thrown away into the wild. He still retained the combat training he grew up with and is a very capable assassin.
An expert marksman. He’s usually a hired assassin and brags about never missing.
The Red Hood:
This was the Joker’s alias before he fell into the vat of chemicals and became the Joker. He was a minor crime boss kinda guy but it’d be cool if he was one of the assassins. It could somehow lead into the other games once Batman corners him and accidentally leads him to fall into the chemicals.
Vandal Savage is an immortal man whose origins date back to 50,000 B.C. He’s an expert martial artist and genius and a dick.
He is a frustrated athlete who turns to crime…so he uses his sporty skills to uhh his advantage…
Black Spider can be implemented in the video game with a twist. He is a double agent who pretends to help out Black Mask by fucking up a ball in Wayne’s Manor. His real goal is to kill Black Mask, but is stopped by the Batman. This incident cuts up Black Spider’s face which ends up looking like a web, so that’s the origin of his name. He becomes a baddy and hates Batman. So like, he can be one of the first assassins and then once his plan fails to kill Black Mask, he can return to kill the Batman at another point of the game. Idk, just an idea.
I’m done, I’m fucking tired.
Hope at least one of these are used Anon.
My friends from different realities.
So, this is my realistic take on how this fight would go…
So let’s just say Batman had no prior encounters with Daredevil, since I’m convinced that a prepared Batman is an unstoppable Batman.
I like the idea of this fight because Daredevil’s blindness and fearlessness directly counter Batman’s usual approach: Stalking foes and instilling fear in them. Daredevil is blind, so Batman’s use of the darkness would be useless. Daredevil has fought in the darkness since he was struck blind.
Batman might start off by sneaking around, trying to find an opening. As soon as he would find it, he’d pounce, and Daredevil would counter with ease by connecting his foot with Batman’s face.
Batman would then calculate how hard he was hit and estimate his opponent’s strength. It wouldn’t take much time to realize that Daredevil does not have any super strength.
He’d then throw some batarangs which would be swiftly dodged by Daredevil. Batman would either assume that Daredevil is a highly trained fighter or that he has superhumanly enhanced senses. Nonetheless, Batman would find that he is the better of the two, having fought and beaten what seems like much more dangerous foes.
Daredevil would be on the defensive the entire time. It’s what he does best. He lets his opponents make enough noise to paint a clear picture in his mind. Once his opponent tires himself out (which he’d be able to find out by regulating their heart beats with his super senses) he would use all of his unused energy to pummel the shit out of whoever he’s fighting,
Batman would try to end the fight quickly by throwing 3 smoke bombs around Daredevil. The initial “Pop!” of each bomb would be enough for Daredevil to paint a clear picture of Batman. Batman would try to connect with three hard punches and miss all of them. Daredevil would counter with two slams to Batman’s head with his billy club and one kick to the stomach. Batman would absorb the kick by Daredevil and grab onto his leg, successfully pulling him closer and slamming one into his nose. Daredevil would try to recover just to be punched 3 more times by the Batman. With a quick back flip, Daredevil would evade Batman’s next two punches and create distance between the two.
It is at this point that Daredevil would go on the offensive, not so much because Batman’s heart has shown any signs of fatigue, but because he allowed himself to be hit and is angered because of it.
Daredevil would connect his billy clubs into a staff and take a huge upward swing at Batman. The Dark Knight would attempt to leap over it, but his scrotum would suffer a soft, slightly pleasing graze. He’d giggle and blush for a second; enough time for an angry Daredevil to tackle him to the ground.
While they’re on the ground, Batman would try to test the boundaries between him and Daredevil by softly twisting his left nipple. Daredevil would be a little confused at this point and would react by grabbing Batman’s ass cheek.
Within 2 minutes, both heroes would be wearing nothing but their masks and socks. They eventually would find that Batman has the more dominating personality and adjust accordingly…
It’s epic and is a must-read.
Gonna write about it at like 5
in my speech class (duh) and want to write about superheroes/comics.
I don’t want to do anything too broad (like the history of comics) or too specific (like a “who is deadpool” speech).
Help me think of a topic?
Had a pretty nice day. Now to kick back and catch up on Arrow.
Some cool Marvel art…and a wild Batman pic.
