Don’t go any further if you don’t want to know any more.  But of course you do and you will.










Call her Cat.

In the first episode we saw her steal milk for a good cause (OK, she also stole  a wallet, but nobody’s purrfect) so we know she’s got a little thief in her. This episode we saw the girl who will grow up to be Cat help save the day.  We also saw she’s a survivor of the streets who has a mother… somewhere.  While she holds her own secrets close to her hoodie, it’s no secret any longer that young Selina Kyle is destined to become Catwoman.  

 Cat has even come up against Carmine Falcone before.  Find out more about one of their encounters in Catwoman: When in Rome.

Who’s the Mayor?

Mayor Aubrey James made his first appearance in Batman Legends of the Dark Knight as a friend of Batman’s father, Thomas Wayne. In case you're wondering, he's the man with blonde hair.

 Arkham Asylum?


 Although this home for the criminally insane has been a part of Gotham City for decades, its origins are actually older than that.  In fact, Arkham Massachusetts is the fictional creation of 30’s pulp-fiction legend H.P. Lovecraft and home to a number of his horror stories.  DC talent began paying tribute to the late writer by mentioning Arkham in the 70’s.  By Batman #326, Arkham Asylum had grown from an homage to a full-blown feature of Gotham City.  For a classic look inside at some tales of madness, visit Batman Arkham Asylum Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE

 According to this episode of Gotham, old Arkham Asylum has been closed for nearly 15 years but might be re-opened.  We’ll wait to see what secrets roam its halls.  Meanwhile, you can explore an entirely different side of Arkham in the brand new Arkham Manor!
