Batman Baddie Copperhead Re-Imagined as Female Assassin in Arkham Origins

Posted on July 18, 2013 AT 02:04pm

Snake-suited supervillain Copperhead has been rewritten as a female assassin and will be among Batman’s adversaries in Arkham Origins, WB Games Montreal announced at Comic-Con today.

As reported by Polygon, WB Games Montreal creative director Eric Holmes unveiled the new, female version of Copperhead with a video that showed the character stalking Batman and combating the Caped Crusader with razor-sharp claws.

Apparently, Copperhead’s new look jelled well enough with famed comic writer Geoff Johns that the new, female version will be used in mainstream DC Universe comics.

Batman: Arkham Origins launches on PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U October 25 alongside Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate for 3DS and PlayStation Vita.

Update: Now with 100% more Copperhead trailer:
