9. Return of Bruce Wayne
The Bruce Wayne/ Batman divide is of massive personal interest to me. How far are they separate? More importantly, which one is the alter ego?
My argument is that Bruce Wayne is the ‘costume’; that he in fact died with his parents that fateful night (metaphorically of course). Now all that’s left inside is the Dark Knight.
Arkham City went a little way to strengthen this argument in its opening segment in which you, as Bruce Wayne, are kidnapped and processed into Arkham City.
Arkham City had a truly epic opening chapter and I loved the fact that Rocksteady went there.
We’d love to see more of these ‘Bruce Wayne’ segments in the next Arkham game; maybe even combined with a mechanic that lets us de-cowl say, whenever we’re in the Batcave, and partake in missions related to the maintenance of the alter-ego.
