Batman has no clue Commissioner Gordon, Magneto and Yoda are the same guy

I haven't had a chance to play it yet, but the reviews for this week's video game release

Batman: Arkham Asylum have convinced me the game's worth shelling out $60 to be the Dark Knight. The game's undeniably cool conceit -- you have to fight your way through Batman's rogues gallery and escape a booby-trapped Arkham Asylum- - is alone enough to get me interested. And now that I know Commissioner Gordon is voiced by a metro native, maybe I can write it off as a work expense? Just in case any of my bosses are reading this.

Overland Park's Tom Kane voices four

characters in the game: Jim Gordon, Quincy Sharp, Amadeus Arkham and

Louie Green, according to the game's credits. It's not the first time Kane has voiced a comic character

either. He has an honor roll of fantasy fiction on his resume,

from voicing Magneto on Wolverine and the X-Men to Yoda on the Clone

Wars cartoon. He's also had parts on Duck Dodgers, Kim Possible, Jimmy

Neutron, the Powerpuff Girls, and about a million other shows and video

games too numerous to list here.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able

to reach Kane. But you know he does an awesome Yoda if someone pays him for it. As my coworker David Martin said, "Everyone thinks they can do Yoda."
