Arkham City Bio
Little is known about the earlt years of the nearly immortal Rāʾs Al Ghul, leader of the League of Assassins, whose name means 'the demon's head'.
He has lived for centuries due to the Lazarus Pits, mystcal and alchemical brews that restore youth. A brilliant master of strategy and organisation, Rāʾs' goal is to save the Earth from it's eventual ecological devastation by destroying most of it's population.
He recognises Batman as both a worthy foe and a possible ally- except that Batman cannot accept Rāʾs' dystopic worldview.
To bring Batman to his side, Ra's has even orchestrated a relationship between Batman and his beautiful daughter, Talia al Ghul.

Chances of Appearing: 7.5/10
Possible Role: I have a strong feeling we haven't gotten rid of Ra's yet. He'll be back as an even bigger threat to Batman. If he comes back, I doubt RS would put him in a side mission. He's far too important of a character to ONLY have a sidemission.

He has been known to return from his death more than one time due to the Lazarus so that won't be a problem in Ra's way.

Mabye he will constuct a lazarus pit and use people even more and will be the main villain of A3 as Joker is dead :ras: :ras: :ras: He might kidnap various high profile people in gotham to cleanse the universe of their filthy laws. He may also kidnap people he may deem worthy to be a sucsessor.

essential reading : The resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul
Chances: 8/10 He will probably be alive again and participating in the game,as that's what the Lazarus Pit does:Resurrects people.

Just because you don't want him to return doesn't mean his chances of returning are 0/10. Look at it from an unbaised view for once. From what we've seen from the game, it's obvious Rocksteady is at least thinking about bringing Ra's back. And they can if they want to.

As if anyone really dies when it comes to Batman. The villains have just about as much plot armor as Batman himself.

I think he'll come back, and like so many have speculated, he may have something to do with Azrael's prophecy at the end of Arkham City.
I'm crazy enough to take on Batman, but the IRS?! No thank you!

He pretty much HAS to be in Arkham 3. No idea what his role could be. Possibly have the League of Assassins wage war against the Order of St. Dumas?

8/10

If anyone is coming back from the dead(Talia,Joker,Clayface).....Its this guy,Ra's Al Ghul, obviously because of his Lazarus Pit and becasue we all know his body is not on the sword on the fence after checking..... I think he'll be back and play a major role having to do with the predicted prophecy of Azrael's.....He'll be looking for revenge on the Batman and probably end up getting convinced by another villain that Batman killed Talia......
