I always feel like such a pathetic Batman fan when all these awesome characters come up in the database, but I've never heard of them...

I doubt we'll ever see these guys in the comics again, yet alone Arkham 3.

I know a fair amount of really obscure Batman allies and even I didn't know these guys. Good job Red. :gordon:

I knew of Onyx for awhile because of Under the Hood, but Orpheus escaped my Bat-radar :p
