Additional Information
Batman discovered this young student after the death of Valley's father, who was dressed in myesterious armour. The two uncovered part of his past; that he was part of a long hereditary line of assassins, genetically modified and grown in vitro. As a child, he was subjected to subconcious hypnotic training, known as 'The System'. Essentially creating a hidden personality, 'The System' would kick in when Valley was in danger or when commanded to kill by a superior and often left Valley with only a vague sense of what he had done. Bruce and Jean-Paul never learned exactly who his supposed masters were.
Shortly after their meeting, Bane broke the Batman's back and, with Nightwing indisposed and Robin too young, Bruce passed the mantle of the Bat to Jean-Paul while he recovered. Unfortunately, Jean-Paul could not escape the nature of 'The System' and he soon began to upgrade the batsuit to include lethal weapons and showed no remorse in killing or maiming the criminals he captured. Robin altered Nightwing and the two of them tried to keep the city together until Bruce could return to reclaim his mantle. Jean-Paul fled, consumed with grief and shame.

Possible role in Arkham 3
Crippled by the effects of Jonathan Crane's new Scarecrow toxin, Batman experiences and fights against his greatest failures, including a reinactment of his breaking by Bane intermixed with his final battle in the Batcave with Jean-Paul Valley's Batman. Batman must use his brain to defeat Valley and escape from the Scarecrow's nightmare. The sudden, painful reminder of Jean-Paul's fragile mind sparks up a side-mssion in which Batman must find and help a homeless, destitute Jean-Paul Valley. Once found, Jean-Paul reveals information about, and fragmented memories regarding, his training and the System that he and Batman use to uncover his family heritage; Azrael and the Order of St Dumas.

This wasn't the same Azreal from AC was it? If not, then I doubt we'll see him. But if it is, theres like a 11/10 chance we'll see him.

Nah that was Michael Lane.

I miss Jean Paul...
Still, depending on the route Rocksteady go, if the Order of St Dumas is heavily involved in A3 i guess theres still a chance JPV could feature despite Lane, however remote.

I have to admit, of all the 'Possible Roles' I've written, this one has me the most excited and hopeful to see it.

That's not bad. That's not bad at all! :adam:

Any inclusion of Jean-Paul Valley is welcome.

as much as I'd love to see Jean-Paul, there already is an Azrael in Arkhamverse and it's Michael Lane.

5/10 Maybe at best.
I loathe you. You have no manners, you're arrogant, and conceited, and I wrote you a letter about it, in fact.
