He ain’t heavy, he’s my sidekick. At least that’s what a lot of us thought about the newer Robin. Personally, I haven’t downloaded the Robin DLC pack for Arkham City since I simply wasn’t sure about the Boy Wonder. Watching this video put together by Rocksteady has pretty much changed my mind. He’s not just Batman-lite here, he has some impressive moves in his repertoire. Robin can deflect bullets with a shield built into his staff whereas Bats has to duck and hide from them. He has a brutal looking zip-kick that just might cave in the chest of any unlucky goon on the receiving end. The best part might just be the Snap Flash, a mobile mine. Plant it on an unsuspecting baddie and let him get into a group of his cohorts then detonate. Boom goes the dynamite! Better yet, knock out him out, plant the mine and wait for them to come check it out. Just like Batman’s explosive gel, set it off when several get close for maximum damage!
The Robin DLC pack is available separately for 560 Microsoft Points ($7) or the recently released Arkham Bundle which also includes the Nightwing pack and the Batman Skins pack for 1200 MS points ($15). There’s even a video showcasing that dlc as well. Hit the jump the check both out and decide for yourselves!

And so like all great things they must all sadly come to an end. The creator of perhaps one of the most notorious DC villains, the Joker, passed away on the 7th December in his sleep at the age of 89. You may not be familiar with Jerry Robinson but I would be very surprised if you had not come across the Joker, one of Batman’s greatest enemies. Born in 1922 he studied journalism at the University of Columbia and was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2004, alongside greats like Steve Ditko and Stan Lee.
DC released a number statements from various editors and executives:
“Jerry Robinson was an innovator, a pioneer in storytelling. His artwork was always astonishing, but his contributions to the Dark Knight mythology go far beyond art. The streets of Gotham City are a little lonelier today…Jerry will truly be missed.”—Mike Marts, BATMAN editor
“It’s impossible to work at DC Entertainment without feeling the impact of Jerry Robinson’s contributions to the industry. His influence continues to resonate today.”—Bob Harras, DC Entertainment Editor-in-Chief
“Jerry Robinson was one of the greats. He continued to be a vibrant, creative force well into his nineties, with ideas and thoughts that continue to inspire. Jerry was a great advocate for creators. It was my pleasure to meet and work with him. He will be missed.”—Dan DiDio, Co-Publisher, DC Entertainment
“Jerry Robinson illustrated some of the defining images of pop culture’s greatest icons. As an artist myself, it’s impossible not to feel humbled by his body of work. Everyone who loves comics owes Jerry a debt of gratitude for the rich legacy that he leaves behind.”—Jim Lee, DC Entertainment Co-Publisher and artist of BATMAN: HUSH
Our thoughts go to his family and friends, rest in peace one of the greatest contributors to comic books of our time.
