Arkham Asylum Bio
Penny Young was always a brilliant student who was prepared to do anything to advance professionally. She has built up a reputation for being a cold, calculating woman, focused only on the project at hand. She was hired at Arkham Asyulm by Warden Quincy Sharp to head up the Asylum's Research Department and to finally restore the more deranged of Gotham's super-villains to sanity.

Additional Information
Dr Young is responsible for the TITAN serum. Tricked into working with an alias of the Joker, Young accepted money from "Jack White" to experiment with Venom, the super-steroid that gave Bane his increased speed, stamina and strength. Prior to the incident at Arkham Asylum, Young had a change of heart and tried to back out of her agreement with "White". During the Joker's takeover of the Asylum, Young tried to hide her notes on the Titan Serum so that they wouldn't fall into his hands. The Joker killed Dr Young during the Arkham Incident in retaliation for her betrayal and took the notes so that he could produce a workable Titan formula.

Possible role in Arkham 3
After realising that "Jack White" wasn't trustworthy, Penny Young attempted to atone for her part in Joker's Titan project by engineering subtle problems with the formula. These problems would eventually lead to the illness that recently affected the Batman and killed the Joker. She also hid the original research and analysis on Venom, including developments that allowed administration of a Venom dose via needle or tranq dart. Research that has spent two years hidden...

Wow, it goes to show how long it's been since I've played Arkham Asylum - I completely forgot about this character. I suppose she did end up getting her revenge on Joker, after he took an overdose of the formula she created...

A really underrated character imo, when Batman says that Bane called her 'witch' it really made you wonder what side she was on.

Obviously, she met her demise in AA, but suppose what's left of the Titan runs so low that there might be some villains who are desperate and crazy enough to bring Dr. Young back to life to recreate the formula...

Chances of appearing: 1/10

It was more her legacy that would have a role in A3 than herself. She's dead and isn't coming back, but her actions had such an impact on the plot of the first two games that it would be strange if there wasn't some sort of reference to to her.
