Arkham Asylum is the home for the criminally insane of Gotham City where it is hoped they will become rehabilitated and allowed back into society. The Asylum is filled with a colourful band of psychopaths, including the likes of The Joker, The Penguin, Riddler, The Ventriloquist, and many others.
The head of the Asylum is Professor Hugo Strange, a man known for using most unorthodox methods in hopes of 'helping' his patients. Despite the fact The Batman has apprehended several of Arkhams' occupants on more than one occasion; Strange believes that there is a place in Arkham for the Dark Knight.
