Additional Information
An awkward youth who had trouble maintaining friendships, Jeremiah was not interested in following in his family's footsteps until, when he was a teenager, he walked into a corner store being held up at gun point by an escaped inmate of the nearby Arkham Asylum. The lunatic had already murdered the shopkeeper and was looting the store when Jeremiah walked in. The lunatic tried to shoot him, but Jeremiah seemed to know all about the gunman's past and talked him into shooting himself instead. The gunman then proceeded to commit suicide and Jeremiah knew he was destined to follow his ancestors and become the head of Arkham Asylum. Jeremiah has spent the last decade travelling around Europe's most well-renowned psychiatric hospitals, preparing for his eventual return home to Gotham's infamous madhouse.

Possible role in Arkham 3
The last living descendant of the Asylum's founder, Amadeus Arkham, has returned to Gotham to rebuild both the asylum and his family's reputation. His work overseeing the refurbishment of the Arkham Mansion and construction of the new Asylum building have led to Jeremiah uncovering many secrets from Gotham's past, including conspiracies involving the Arkhams, Cobblepots and the Waynes. Could these secrets lead Jeremiah down the road to madness that has plagued his family for generations?

I don't really see a further gor him in the Arkham rede to be honest. 3/10.
Although he is an interesting charater, I could see him rebuilding Arkham, like you along with reputation. Still I think his odds are low... 3/10

Chances of appearing 6 out of 10 - so he's likely to appear? Are you friggin' kidding me? I think it's like barely 1 out of 10

6/10
I think they should extend the Amadeus Arkham story and you don't know what the story will be so it could go anywhere.

I thought he was dead? His coffin is found in AA right? Unless he's in the prequel, then I'd say 4/10. If it's a sequel, 0/10

I would say that he has an alright chance of appearing. Somewhere around 4/10, perhaps? We need another villain who can get in Batman's head, and while he isn't the greatest choice, he could work quite well.

Way to be disrespectful to someone, especially a mod.

I do not have anything against Red Robin, he's a nice guy! But, in my opinion, 60% chance of appearing is kind of too bumped up. Didn't mean to sound disrespectful, sorry...

I've read Arkham Asylum: Living Hell and wish I could forget it. It was a confusing and thoroughly unpleasant read. At least for my taste. Black Mask has already made an appearance in the Arkhamverse; I don't see why they'd need another Black Mask. I could handle it if it was just Jeremiah Arkham and not his Black Mask.
I'm crazy enough to take on Batman, but the IRS?! No thank you!

Agreed; hence no mention of the Black Mask alter ego.
