Almost Got 'Em... by BrokenTeapot Almost Got 'Em... by BrokenTeapot
This was commissioned by *FallenAngelCam7, and he wanted me to draw some of the defeated villains from Arkham City playing poker, reminiscent of the Batman animated series episode, "Almost got Im."

Characters shown DC comics
Art *BrokenTeapot

... Also, due to this being a GIF file, it took me FOREVER to try and submit this, but for some reason it would only let me use this current category. SO, if anyone can tell me which category I SHOULD submit this to, then that would be much appreciated. ^^;

Rocksteady fucked them self when they killed Joker. Now they can't make a new Batman game with Joker. Unless he somehow got the cure...

I don't think that Rocksteady was stupid when they made the Joker Dies,I think that somehow he will be still alive like any other games often when someone dies in the Game

Guess what? The new game goes back to when Batman was younger! So Joker is still alive!

"SPOILERS"

at the end of the Riddler mission, he gets one of his own explosive helmets attached to his head by Batman, though Batman secretly disarmed it first, to make sure he behaves.

Never played the game, so I dunno what the spoilerz are here. But I wanted to comment your cleverness in placing a preview picture via making the main submission a gif instead of a j-peg or png. Man, I wish DA hadn't removed the preview feature; I rather liked that.

It would also be cooler if the GIFs can be saved at a higher resolution without any rez-loss...

Penguin: 'Kay, folks. Ante up 'ere. Jus' 'cause t'e city and t'e Bat reduced us ta maggots in a hellhole don't mean we can't 'ave ourselves a civilized game o' cards.
Riddler: All the planning... all the set-up... and I get reduced to a rat in a maze. I swear, I will never live this down.
Mad Hatter: He... he broke my hat...
Two-Face: Aw, will you just SHUT UP about the damn hat already?! Compared to us, you got off lightly, and we didn't even fight the Bat!
Harley Quinn: (incoherent muttering and crying)
Poison Ivy: Give it a rest, Harley. I mean, now that he's gone, this is your big chance to shine. And besides... you're killing for two now.

i love how sad Harley is... i wonder if she's going to actualy do something useful in the third game, i mean, i love harley, but she's Princess Peach, just a nice looking trophy for the winner =/

There is this girl who told me "No RoloX, Harley is a inteligent independent woman"... i was like "realy?, did i miss something from the comics, games and cartoons?, i mean, that could happen"... independent... someone please explain me that...

The main difference is that while Mario saves Peach for "cake", Batman tosses her to the ground.

I don't know who said that she's an "intelligent and independent" woman but that's pretty wrong. She's a sad and pathetic character obsessed with a man who sees her as a tool/toy.

Things I notice in this picture:
Two face has a complete set of 2s, which makes fun of the fast that he has 2 personalities.
Mad hatter is looking up at his hat, suggesting he's waiting for the right time to exchange it with one of the cards in his hands. Either that or he's his cards are reminding him that he failed to defeat bat man with his "other" cards.
The Riddle seems to have a minus sign in front of the question on his tie, which I don't have the faintest clue to the meaning of it.
I see that Quinn has a joker card in her hand, and judging by the slight tilt of her head and Poison Ivy trying to comfort Quinn, Harley is mourning for her loss of someone special.
Finally, I notice that Penguin is just...well, grumpy, nothing more.

I'm sorry, am I forgeting anything?

maybe the way 2Face & Ivy are grilling each other cautiously yet with contempt. if you've ever seen the episode this pic's inspired by, you'll remember these lines:

2Face: (after Ivy greeted him) "half of me wants to strangle you!"
Ivy: "...and the other half?"
2Face: "hit you with a truck!!!"
Ivy: (to the rest of the group) "we used to date...!"

I'd say taht the two fingers holding up the cards are an offensive gesture which suggests his anger with being defeated, but that's stretching it!
