The dramatic reenactment of...Batman: Arkham Origins' pitch

Origin stories have been all the rage with comic book heroes of late, with Batman, Superman, X-Men, and Spider-Man (just to name a few) taking part. But sometimes, just one origin story isn't enough. You need to tell the story several times. Consecutively.

There are a couple different ways you can here. One possibility: Tell the story with a slightly different spin, so that no one notices. Another? Redefine the word "origin." Take, for example, Batman: Arkham Origins...

You like those beautiful Arnette glasses? Think you've got a better David Caruso-esque one-liner than "Looks like Batman's Arkham just got its Origins"? If so, leave your best one-liner in the comments. We'll pick our four favorites and hook those folks up with their very own pairs! Oh, and here's the official rules, if you're into that kind of thing.

LAST WEEK'S WINNERS: awesomesauce, TokenGamesRadarFurry, GOD. Email to claim your Arnette glasses!

    I messaged you guys and haven't gotten a message back. Also even if I've already won a round i still want to give people some enjoyment so here's mine: -after Copper made the pun- Tom says: "You guys are real Jokers"

    Arkhamtect? You Gotham be kidding me. It's a Harley Quinn-cidence that these ideas were rejected.

    Looks like a new developers up to bat. I'm sorry, I just really want a chance at glasses that probably won't be shipped here.

    Why Batman: Arkham Origins, when it could be Batkid: Arkham Begins.

    Tom captured how hard it is to pitch ideas to developers. This was funny and those sunglasses are everywhere!!!

    Holy hell that one was really good.... No, don't be silly. He's an Arkhamtect..... xDDDD Also great to see Tom got be the big shot after getting torn apart last week. Although somehow the joke was still on him. Woot! Sunglasses. I've also got absolutely no ideas for this week anyways..... Cooper already blew my mind.

    That was pretty great, Arkhamtect may be one of the greatest puns of the last ten years.
