The Arkham Asylum (アーカム・アサイラム, Ākamu Asairamu), colloquially referred to simply as "Arkham" (アーカム, Ākamu), is a location that appears in the Marvelous DC's Justice Avengers series created by Gardner Fox and Jack Kirby.

It is a government-funded medical institution and penitentiary dedicated to the rehabilitation of the criminally insane, built on a small island off the coast of Gotham City as a security measure. The asylum was named after the original director's mother.

Having being in operation over the years, numerous criminals have been or are being admitted to the facility. The asylum has a mainly gothic look, with many interior gargoyles, but had been outfitted with high-tech security, including forcefield security doors.

"What kind of psycho built this place? Don't look like no hospital I ever been in."
