What did they do to Croc

Postby arkham maniac 22 » Jul 3rd, 2015, 4:15 am

I mean looks nothing like he did in the past games! Is there any reason he's like this now. Any explanation in the prequel comics. Becuase I think his new design is horrible dosen't even resemble his old self!

The reasoning is that Croc's "condition" gets worse over time, further mutating him into a monster. In Origins, Waylon had more human features, in Asylum/City he grows considerably larger and forms even more grotesque teeth, and finally in Knight it appears he's still growing (his one arm for example) and apparently has a tail. It might be a bit much, but it isn't the first time its been done with the character (see the HUSH comic arc for example).

I'm pretty sure this was either because of TITAN or Scarecrow. Either ways, whatever it was, I'm definitely interested in finding out what happened. Thankfully, we're getting Croc DLC. Otherwise, I wouldn't be interested in it.

I doubt this has to do with his condition, though. It's an abnormal version of a skin disease, not something that would give him a tail. His transformation in the Hush storyline was due to, ah, actually, I forgot who it was, but somebody did something to him. He wanted to turn back to "normal," if I recall correctly.

The only Arkham-version of Croc who could nearly pass as someone with a skin disease is the one in Origins. You don't grow 11 ft tall and get eyes and teeth like that because of a skin desease. He was already mutating into a human crocodile during Asylum.

Well, I'd like to think that's the extent of his mutation. He can't possibly have changed this much in just a year.

Agreed, the difference between origins croc and asylum croc is extreme but that was over 5 years and resemblance can still be seen. Also he did have a more humanoid body but the AK croc looks like a giant green blob and doesn't show any human characteristics, besides standing on two legs.

You have a point here. A year seems a little short. Although this is a comic-universe, so it's hard to determine what's realistic or not, because you can't really compare it to our understanding of realism :adam:

IMO he looked horrible. I immediately thought he looked like a mini Godzilla.

I understand that his condition worsens over time, but I thought the Arkham games have made him look amazing up until Knight.

I hope when they, hopefully, release a trailer for the Season of Infamy DLC we'll get a better look at Croc. I have a feeling this one looks better up close than far away...though I will not argue the spikes on the side of his body are WAY too long.

Am I missing something or is this all speculation off that one riddle? I'll have to go back and look...I don't remember what I even saw. I was in the collectible zone.
