Now, before we dive into the juicy details, let me warn you that this article contains more spoilers than the Joker has schemes. So, if you haven't finished Batman: Arkham Knight, you might want to put on your Bat-ears and fly away from here. Consider yourself warned!
Our anti-heroic quartet finds themselves in a rather peculiar situation early on in Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League. Picture this: they're standing in a museum dedicated entirely to Batman. Yes, you heard that right. A museum dedicated to the man himself. In this universe, it seems that Batman's popularity is so immense that he gets his own museum. Talk about an ego boost!
Now, you might be wondering why Rocksteady decided to throw our misfit squad into a Batman museum. Well, besides the fact that Batman is simply awesome, it's also a clever way for the developers to revisit their past accomplishments and, of course, answer some lingering questions.
Remember the ending of Batman: Arkham Knight? The one where Batman fakes his own death, leaving us all in a state of shock and despair? Yeah, that one. Well, Suicide Squad sheds some light on what our beloved Bruce Wayne has been up to during those five long years between Arkham Knight and this new adventure.
According to a display in the museum, Batman made his grand return to the world after years of hiding in the shadows. And guess what? He didn't just come back as Batman; he also resurfaced as the one and only Bruce Wayne. That's right, folks! Our brooding vigilante decided to admit that he faked his death as Wayne. Talk about a plot twist!
But that's not all. Batman, being the ultimate multitasker, also joined the Justice League. Apparently, the meta-human "super-heroes" (because regular heroes just won't cut it anymore) extended an invitation to Batman, and he graciously accepted. Now, our Dark Knight is not just protecting the mean streets of Gotham; he's serving justice on a much larger scale. It seems Batman's commute has become a bit longer these days.
Now, I know what you're thinking. What about Gotham? Who was safeguarding the city while Batman was off playing superhero soccer with the Justice League? Did he take a sabbatical and let someone else wear the cape? Well, my dear reader, those answers are still shrouded in mystery. Perhaps Batman hired a part-time Bat-substitute or implemented a sophisticated Bat-AI to keep Gotham safe. The possibilities are endless!
But fear not, for Rocksteady didn't leave us completely in the dark. They've given us a glimpse into Batman's newfound role as a member of the Justice League. You see, Batman's return to the light was narrated with the utmost gravitas by the one and only Jack Ryder. In his in-game voiceover, Ryder eloquently explains:
"Several years after faking his death, Bruce Wayne finally returned, drawn back to the light by the meta-human 'super-heroes.' They asked Batman to join the Justice League. He accepted. And so the story of Bruce Wayne—the Batman—continues, far from the mean streets of the city that made him."
So, there you have it! The enigma of Batman's resurrection has been partly unraveled. But let's not forget that this is the Arkhamverse we're dealing with. There are always more mysteries lurking in the shadows, waiting to be discovered. We still don't know the full story of what happened during those five years or who protected Gotham in Batman's absence. It's like trying to solve the Riddler's riddles without a cheat sheet.
But hey, at least we now have some closure on the ending of Arkham Knight. After nearly a decade of wondering, we can rest a little easier knowing that our beloved Dark Knight is alive and kicking, even if he's traded the dark alleys of Gotham for the grand stage of the Justice League.
