Analyzing The Main Characters of ‘Batman – The Telltale Series’

Bruce Wayne/Batman – The one constant in any adaptation of Batman. If you’re familiar with the character, he won’t be too dissimilar from what you’ve seen. The major difference is that this version is younger so he’s not as hardened. He seems much more willing to play both personas instead of focusing mainly on being Batman. He doesn’t seem to have the “lazy billionaire playboy” thing going on. Bruce Wayne seems very active in his company and his community.


Harvey Dent – Harvey Dent is something of a change. Here he is depicted as being physically taller and bulkier than Bruce Wayne. While traditionally Harvey Dent has been portrayed as an altruistic District Attorney, here he something different.While he is still portrayed as being a good man and wanting to do a good job, he seems to be much more lenient with criminals. While usually Harvey Dent is portrayed as being the opposite and that being a factor in him becoming Two-Face, here he muses to Bruce that he will have to work with Carmine Falcone. There is also a “slave to PR” element added to him.


Oswald Cobblepot – The biggest change is this character here. Oswald Cobblepot is also known as The Penguin. The Penguin is typically portrayed as older, shorter and fat. Here he is the not only the same age as Bruce Wayne but also a childhood friend of his. The criminal element is still there but now he is depicted as something of a brawler. However some things are always constant and he has a long criminal history. He also hints that he has big plans for the city and that anyone standing in his way will pay the consequences.
