Arkham’s Boy Wonder

In the world of “Batman: Arkham Asylum,” gamers were introduced to a very dark Batman similar to that of “The Dark Knight.”  However in other series, Batman was unable to go very far without Robin, the Boy Wonder.  With Arkham Asylum’s sequel, “Batman: Arkham City,” just a few months away, the producers have released this concept art for Robin.  I must say, he’s completely badass.  Robin has a revamped, darker look and I love it.

While this is a far stretch from the childish Robin some of us knew in “Batman: The Animated Series,” I think it’s for the best.  Between the recent movies and video games, Batman and the world around him have become much darker.  It’s only fair that Robin follows suit with a new look and persona.  Considering how much I loved “Batman: Arkham Asylum,” I can’t wait to pick up “Arkham City” on October 18.  Let’s just hope Robin’s character lives up to this concept art.
