Arkham City Bio
Born with a rare mutation that made his skin green and scaly and grew his body to grotesque proportions, Waylon Jones was raised by an alcoholic aunt and bullied relentlessly for his appearance.
He briefly worked as a carnival freak under the name Killer Croc, but misanthropy grew with his animal nature, pushing him to a life of crime. As his physical condition and mental state deteriorate, Killer Croc becomes a more bestial foe, increasingly detached from humanity.
His whereasbouts are unknown since his escape from Arkham Asylum.

Additional Information
Waylon Jones has become more animal than human. As his appearance grows more and more grotesque, his bestial side comes through more and more as well. Driven to a life of crime by an abusive aunt and constant bullying, Croc relies more on instinct than human thought. Croc also has an intense hatred of humanity, compounded by jealousy, meaning that no human is safe when he’s around, as Croc will target, kill, and often feed on any person who gets in his way. His physical size and strength as well as the threat he possesses to Gotham’s citizens means that whenever Croc is on the loose, Batman will stop at nothing to find him. Thanks to Hush__. After ending up inside Arkham City he found that 'food' was never really an issue as Joker and Peguin's thugs kept going down there to try and flush eachother out, but after having made deal with Mr. Hammer he promised to only eat Penguin's thugs, however people from all factions had a tendancy of ending up in the sewer so he was never without a meal. Has a strong hatered of Batman and waits for the day he gets to feast on him. Thanks to Scarecrow112.

Possible role in Arkham 3
Croc is always a threat to Batman when he's around and in the potential third game in the Arkhamverse, Croc will most likely be around. After settling for just a brief cameo in the last game, Croc will have to step it up in A3. His size and strength would lend him perfectly to being a lackey of another villain, will Penguin or Black Mask hire this monstrous killer? Or maybe he's got other plans of his own for Gotham and it's human population. Whatever he's up too, Batman (or maybe Robin) will have to deal with this menace. Thanks to Hush__.

Essential reading
Batman #358-359 & Detective Comics #525-526, Swamp Thing #66, Batman #489, Knightfall, Batman: Hush, Arkham Asylum: Living Hell,

Chances of appearing in Arkham3

Esstinal reading: Batman Hush, Arkham Asylum a living hell,Batman: Dark Knight,
Chances of A3 apperance: 7\10
Info: he is an insane murderous monster with almost no regard for human life. His best enviroment is the water. He is very poorly organized. He can not even plan a simple kidnapping with out aid. Still, over the years his intellegenace has changed over the years. at points he appears to be smart while at other times he appears to very brain-less
Role: he will no doubt be looking for batman after the events in AA and AC. He will most likly be running his own small time gang because he hates working for anyone but himself.

He looks like he weighs a hell of a lot more than 310lbs. What people want is a proper fight with Croc. Refer to C4RLs Arkham 3 story for what that should be like.

Chances of appearing. 4/10

I would say 3 1/2 he played a fair role in Asylum so in A3 no doubt the fight will be something similar
Batman's fight isn't easy. So lets make it harder.

Joker's Asylum vol 2 should be a required reading! Not just Croc's, all of Joker's Asylum arcs

Additional Information: After ending up inside Arkham City he found that 'food' was never really an issue as Joker and Peguin's thugs kept going down there to try and flush eachother out, but after having made deal with Mr. Hammer he promised to only eat Penguin's thugs, however people from all factions had a tendancy of ending up in the sewer so he was never without a meal. Has a strong hatered of Batman and waits for the day he gets to feast on him.

Role in Arkham 3: Killer Croc will most likely be living in the sewers of the area that A3 will be set and Batman will be forced to go down for a certain purpose, at which point Croc will attempt to kill him

Chances of appearin in A3: 7/10

He doesn't have to be in the sewers again - Croc can perfectly live in the outside world too...

Chances of appearing in A3: 7.5/10
His appearance in AC showed he was still pissed at Batman after AA.

Possible Role: He could be roaming the streets and be someone that Batman must avoid at all costs, forcing you to sneak passed him. However, a battle is inevitable.

This, except that I'd bump up the chance to an 8.5.

His appearance in AC shows that he's coming after Batman and is untamed and on the loose. He was originally going to wait for Batman to die, but, since Batman got cured, Croc's going to have to kill Bruce himself.

Croc's fight in AA was cool, but Batman basically ran away without fighting Croc head-on. He should return and have more of a head-to-head battle with Batman. It should still be tactical, like the AA fight, but it should feel more like a battle and less like a chase.
