I think it's a big enough spoiler. There's been posts on these forums and a bunch of youtube vidsd trying to figure out who he is for over a year. It sucks that the prequel comics reveals who he is right off the bat, thanks for the warning about the spoiler in the comics.

If it makes you feel any better most people have a good idea who he is cause of how close the story kinda follows a similar storyline in the comic. I wouldn't be surprised if this theory turns out the be true.

Yea, I'm kind of let down after reading the spoiler. After seeing the E3 trailer where Joker gets burned (Joker was my default guess for AK's identity), I had my hopes set on Thomas Wayne Jr or Hush. But who knows, maybe they'll be involved in some other way of the story (I know Hush is still on the loose as of AC)

This made me want to go looking for who it is, so... Spoiling it for myself. It's not The Joker, it's not Hush, it's not Azrael, it's Jason Todd. Or it might not be, I still don't know. The Batman Wiki site has already added Arkham Knight's name under one of the characters aliases. We'll see. I'm not sure what significance that really means to me personally if this is who it is.

I haven't looked up anything on the matter but this is who I always figured it would be. Seemed pretty obvious.

Yes. You know, the guy who wears a helmet and shoots dudes all the time.

@larrydavis: Well this whole hype over this new character seems...unwarranted then.

Mmmmmhm!

I guess it's probably because, even if it is kind of the same thing, it's a "new villain" (slash antihero probably) created for the games. The others haven't had that.

@larrydavis: The only reason it wasn't obvious to me is because when I see the Arkham games, I don't so much as look at how the outside source, like the comics, can be induced into the games, but how the story and characters so far in the games have perhaps effected what's going on. I thought it seemed 'obvious' that it might be The Joker. I never really got the feeling he died in City. That said, if you do look at it from a different perspective, yeah, it does make sense that Jason Todd could be Arkham Knight. To me though, that's kind of a weird choice. Who that isn't a big enough fan of Batman (and really just knows the story and characters through the games) will know or care about the reveal if he's Arkham Knight? I feel like the reveal will be more effective for those that know the characters from the comics, and not just from what they have seen in the games, otherwise Rocksteady will have to have some other way of making it effective. I didn't read the comic, nor did I watch that animated movie they put out, so perhaps it was delved in deeper there.

What I was thinking is that it's deathstroke, deadshot, and bane combined, maybe by Amanda Waller. She could be the one who supplies him with all the weapons, vehicles, and tanks. It would explain why it would go after batman, and why she recruited them in the arkham origins games.
