Oink oink indeed :pyg:

Here's an audioclip from Batman and Robin #3, in which he makes his first appearance. Yes Damian's voice is awful and I'd imagine Pyg sounding more like a crazed Severus Snape, but admit it, this scene is just beautifully creepy -

He is an awesome character and has a great backstory to appear in Arkham City! He is a dark character that could totally fit into the dark atmosphere of the Arkhamverse.

Cmon Rocksteady, make it happen!

I can imagine taking down Pyg as a side character, either Nightwing, Robin or Huntress.

I Love Prof Pyg!
But what I like more, is to get a mix between well known villains and less known and nex villains.
Prf Pyg is quite new, unknown from a certain public, but is becoming really popular.

With Joker out, and certainly Zasz too (since we alwready had a presenc ein both games) I think Pyg deserves a spot, to replace Joker's madness, in hiw own way...

4/10 :pyg:

*bump*

Pyg fits the Arkhamverse perfectly, he would be a good replacement for Zsasz.

Oh my god, some of the comments from people in this thread are hilarious. :oldyella:

It's like a realm where punctuation, thought and reasoning all disappeared.

Pyg's a great villain and deserves a spot in the next game. Is it wrong I found Zsasz to not be creepy at all in the last game? Probably because he sounded like Vincent Price.

So for the next game:

Zsasz out, Pyg in. Oink.

Some of the older comments make me sad.

While i am indeed one of the piggy's number one fans, I don't think we'll be seeing him anytime soon. As far as I'm aware he's been quiet for a while now since the riots at the start of the new 52 (correct me if I'm wrong). While a Riddle would be nice, Origins seems set in the early days when the 'freaks' are only just popping out, throwing Pyg in would either be a wake up call of how crazy things could get, or just be a strange choice given how many more famous and long term enemies there are.

I agree, Prof Pyg is not the best choice ofr Arkham Origins.
I'd prefer Zasz again, even if we alwready got him in 2 games, because I feel the villains we have alwready seen in previous games deserves to get their origins set in the prequel.
Not all of them of course, would be weird to see all the villains created in one night, but Zasz as a mysterious unknown serial killer would be cool, first meeting with batman :)

Pyg would fit more in a sequel to AC, I would not be too pesimistic about this.

Even as a side mission I don't know if they'd include him. Interesting if they did, but I'm not expecting him to appear.

I think he should appear in the game as a side mission where he has kidnapped cops (as well as Commissioner Gordon) and you have to find them before Pyg performs a labotomy on them.

Professor Pyg rocks! One of the best modern/recent villains imo. Don't mind if he is in A3.

If they're going for chronology, it would make sense for :pyg: not to appear. But I think there's better than even odds that he'll get a riddle or some sort of cameo. I'd really like to see a fight scene with his four minions, whose names escape me. They seem like they could provide some interesting and varied combat challenges. Could look them up, wouldn't do anybody much good. Feel free to provide the names if you want.
Anyways, Toad, the conjoined triplets that fight as a unit, the fat "lady", and the guy whose face is always on fire. Fat lady could be implemented similar to the titan thugs, conjoined triplets would be harder to sneak up on and would require more complex counter input sequences. Can't imagine an interesting implementation of the Toad in fighting, so you encounter him in some other capacity, such as an interrogation or a chase sequence. Fire guy is a tough one, I can't think of how to implement him in a unique combat sequence either.
how I relish this battle, let's see if you can cut the mustard, try to ketchup etc.

This is the first I've heard of Professor Pyg. Based on what I've read, I am thoroughly disturbed and am cringing.

Put him in a Batman game!! :pyg:

He might even be as creepy as the Scarecrow or the Mad Hatter. I'll give him a 5/10.
