Cast And Characters


  • The story arc was alluded to in which Ryder is seen listening to audio reports about Deacon Blackfire and a picture of Blackfire's blade was seen.
  • Blackfire and his cult seem unaffected by the previous attack of Fear Gas. It's possible that they were able to overcome fear with their strong faith, akin to Batman's iron will.
    • Although some militia mention that they heard chanting in the underground tunnels, suggesting that the Cult hid out there during the attack.
