    Default Pick your Top 8 Batverse characters (besides Bruce)

    Let's say there's a new Batman project coming out. Could be a movie, tv show, video game, animated, musical, whatever.

    Batman (Bruce Wayne) will be the star, but DC / Warner wants to surround him with 8 other Batverse characters that they'll fully develop in new ways.

    YOU pick the 8 Batverse characters to surround Bruce.

    They could be civilian supporting cast, costumed BatFam allies, or rogues gallery members. But you only have 8 slots to fill.

    First draft for my picks to surround Bruce:

    1. Alfred Pennyworth
    2. Jim Gordon
    3. Joker
    4. Selina Kyle
    5. Dick Grayson
    6. Two-Face
    7. Barbara Gordon
    8. Phantasm/Reaper

    Hmmm ... I might change my picks later.

    What are yours?

    Here goes (in no particular order):

    1. Jim Gordon
    2. Alfred Pennyworth
    3. The Joker
    4. Selina Kyle
    5. Dick Grayson
    6. Harvey Dent
    7. Barbara Gordon
    8. Oswald Cobblepot

    Damn, my list is almost identical to yours and I wasn't even peeking!

    But yeah, I think this covers the essential supporting cast, the love interest (who also starts out as a significant villain) and three of the most iconic and important villains.

    is this like a supporting cast thing or is this like a Gotham Cinematic Universe type deal, i.e character that will be introduced via the new Batman project but ultimately can/will spin off into their own things. my answer great varies depending on which way we going with this.

    My hypothetical is an open-world game, set in Gotham. And like Arkham Knight, you can do side-quests with allies.

    For allies, I'm tempted to go for characters that provide more tension and aren't necessarily going to agree to everything Bruce says. In fact, there could be one of those friend/rival type status measurements (maybe be called Disposition or something, but not actually friendship/rivalry of course) - that affects their disposition towards the player and actions taken.

    That sounds more interesting to me, so I'm just going to go with potentially difficult allies and team-ups this round.

    Huntress
    Red Hood
    Robin (Damian)
    Catwoman
    Batwoman
    Harley Quinn
    Killer Croc

    For major villain, as long as kept intelligent, I'm going to go with Bane.

    [Edit] Hm, actually, maybe should swap out Robin and Batwoman for Two-Face and Clayface to be more interesting.

    Cass
    Steph
    Dick
    Condiment King
    Kite Man (Hell Yeah!)
    Babs

    I don't hate Tim, but I'm not a fan either. For me, he simply kind of "exists". If it were 9, Bao Pham, being Clownhunter, would have made the list. For the simple reason he hunts down and wipes out those annoying clowns.

    Just need to do it to Joker, Harley, and new Harley (whatever her name is).
