Warner Bros. Interactive and DC Entertainment have come up with a collector’s edition of upcoming videogame “Batman: Arkham Origins” that even Bruce Wayne might love.

The limited edition set, priced at $120, will include:

■ the game for either Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, when it becomes available Oct. 25

■ a premium 9-inch statue of the Joker featuring LED effects, produced by TriForce

■ an 80-page, full-color hardcover art book

■ two key pieces of evidence from the Gotham City Police Department crime lab

■ a Batman Wanted Poster

■ the schematic of a Batwing prototype

■ a stencil of the Anarky logo

■ a glow-in-The-dark map of Gotham City

■ a Wayne family photo

■ an assassin’s intel dossier, including files on the eight assassins in the game, as well as Black Mask’s contract

■ a skin that lets Batman look the way he did during his first appearance in “Detective Comics #27,” released in 1939

■ a Deathstroke challenge pack that unlocks the ability to play as one of the world’s deadliest assassins and is usable throughout all the “Arkham Origins” challenge maps. Character pack also includes two bonus challenge maps and two bonus Deathstroke skins

■ and the Knightfall challenge pack only for PlayStation 3

■ and the “Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics” feature-length documentary from Warner Bros Home Entertainment that focuses on DC Comics’ villains — including the Joker, Lex Luthor, Bane, Black Adam, Black Manta, Catwoman, Darkseid, Deathstroke, Doomsday, General Zod, Sinestro, and the Suicide Squad — that Christopher Lee narrates. Directors Richard Donner, Guillermo del Toro and Zack Snyder, as well as DC’s chief creative officer Geoff Johns are featured in the film, which will also be sold separately for around $19.98.

“I am delighted to be participating in this documentary which really gets to the heart of what villains are,” Lee has said. “Even though I’ve played the hero more times than the bad guy, people remember me for the latter, perhaps because villains are more interesting and more complex. But they’re still people. Tony Hopkins was right when he said, ‘I don’t play villains, I play people.’ Each of these characters has a different personality and their reasons for being or becoming evil are not the same.”
