Batman: Assault on Arkham

Synopsis: In Gotham City, the Riddler has secret information on the top secret Task Force X that he threatens to make public, but before Amanda Waller can have him killed, he is captured by Batman. Now with Riddler imprisoned in Arkham Asylum, Amanda Waller reassembles the Suicide Squad of captured supervillains with the mission to infiltrate the forensic mental hospital to retrieve Riddler's information. Led by Deadshot, this black ops team makes their way into the facility, only to face complications from within and without the team with secret agendas and double crosses all around. Meanwhile, Batman has his own concerns with an urgent search for The Joker's deadly bomb that threatens Gotham City. Eventually, all these players converge on Arkham Asylum for a showdown that few are going to escape alive.

Riddle me this.

When is a door, not a door?

It feels like drowning, doesn't it?

When the answer is at the

edge of your cortex,

but you can't seem to grasp it.

You're trying my patience.

The answer... When it's Ajar!

Here is an easy one.

What runs around a

city, but never moves?


A wall!

What do you want, Nigma?

I'm in charge so I'll

ask the questions.

Try to keep up, wont you?

Riddle me this.

What belongs to you,

but others use it more than you do?

Your name.


You've heard that one!

No, I have Google,

like the rest of the world.

Why do you talk to me

like this, waller?

Simple, I needed to

keep you babbling

long enough to pinpoint

your position.

My... what?

Hands in the air, where

we can see them!

Take him out!

Make it hurt!

Riddle me this.

Why didn't I quit when I was ahead?

What is it? Report!

The riddler is mine!

Switch to night vision!

Secure the perimeter!

Holy crap! It's Batman!


I know you helped him, Nigma.

Tell me where it is.

I'm invoking priority

level, ultraviolet.

Assemble task force X.

We have another suicide mission.

I got the hangover, but I

don't recall the party.

Oh crap! Not this again!

You too?

It's like a bloody

recurring nightmare.

Looks like we've got rookies.

Who are you people?

And why am I in uniform?

No bars!

No chains!

Time for meat!


You try it, fish fingers, and I'll

show you the meaning of cold-blooded.

You're feisty.

Everybody! Shut up!

I've been here before.

I am leaving!


Sit down!

I'm Amanda waller.

I'm here to indoctrinate you

convicts into our special forces.


I kill to keep degenerates

off the streets.

I won't work alongside them.

Fresh air and term off my sentence?

Feel free to keep

calling me up, love.

Task force X is an off-the-books

government strike team,

made up of convicts with

no hope for release,

serving as expendable agents,

for impossible missions.

Succeed, and I'll shave

time off your sentences.

If we don't?

You'll be dead!

Any other stupid questions?

Yeah, what's in my neck? A tracker?

Yes, and a powerful

nanotech explosive.

Run away, get yourself captured,

disobey an order,

hell, give me a right

answer too slowly,

and I'll blow your head clean off!

You're lying.

You would not take all of this

trouble, just to kill us.

Try me!

Anyone else?

I didn't think so.

What's so dangerous this time that

you had to send in the newbies?

You're going to break

into Arkham asylum.

- That's insane!

- You don't know much, do you?

Screw that!

I don't do freaky deaky's.


How do we start?

Oh, I like you, cowboy.

You're loco!

And me likey your locomotion!

- Ahh!

- What's the plan?

A week ago, while in my employ, a low

life calling himself the riddler

managed to gain access

to my computer system.

He downloaded a file

containing the identities

and histories of every current, past and

potential member of the suicide squad.

Including ours?

That's right! He's threatening to

release them all on the Internet.

You're going to get it back.

Riddler's got one copy, and it's

on a thumb drive in his cane,

which is apparently locked away

in the Arkham property room.

In the intensive treatment building, right

under the solitary confinement cells.

Good times!

So we get someone inside.

Is it me? Can it be me?


She's a wild card.

Harley Quinn, has an encyclopedic

knowledge of Arkham's layout

and its logistics.

She gonna be okay that

close to the joker?

I'm fine, we're done.

He's a jerk! Whatever.

Well, I'm convinced.

You'll be snuck into Gotham.
