SDCC 2011: Talia Al Ghul confirmed for Batman: Arkham City

EW got the scoop to reveal that Talia Al Ghul will be in the new game, Batman: Arkham City, the much anticipated sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum. I’m just going to quote the article because it sums everything up pretty well.

EW can exclusively confirm that Stana Katic, best known for playing Detective Kate Beckett on ABCís Castle, will voice the character of Talia al Ghul in the upcoming video game Batman: Arkham City, the follow-up to 2009?s much-beloved Batman: Arkham Asylum. Thereís no word yet on how Talia will figure into the gameís storyline. In the comics, Talia is the frequently conflicted daughter of Raís al Ghul, one of Batmanís archenemies. In spite of this, Talia is often a love interest for the Dark Knight. The two even get married at one point, with Talia giving birth to Batmanís son, Damian Wayne.

Katicís involvement in the game will be announced later today at a Comic-Con panel for Batman: Arkham City, which hits stores Oct. 18 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Powet Alphabet: R is for Robin, the Boy/Girl Wonder

It’s not a great thing to be Batman’s protege. You get shot at, blown up, killed, and — like Menudo, the Boy Scouts, or the Disney Channel — you get kicked out once you get too old. Robin is little more than a brightly colored sprite for criminals to shoot at instead of Batman, much like how a magician would use a sexy assistant to distract the audience. Except this sexy assistant is (usually) a nubile young boy, and stands a much better chance of actually getting sawed in half.

Robin has been part of the Batman mythos for 70 years. Even in real time, that means Batman must have gone through a slew of supple young teens by now. But in comic time? Hoo boy.

So just how many goddamn Robins are there anyway? (And why isn’t Batman clever enough to think of another alias for his underage sidekicks?)
