Most major characters in the Batman comics have spent some time inside a cell at Arkham, including but not limited to The Joker, The Riddler, Scarecrow,Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, and Two-Face; not to mention Harley Quinn, who started off as a doctor at Arkham before her own mental collapse. However, keeping with the mythology of the original comics means we probably won’t be seeing much of these characters at Arkham anytime soon. Perhaps Edward Nygma has potential?!
