|Bios - Edward Nygma / The Riddler
|Voiced By: John Glover
First Appearance: "If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich?"
Bio: Edward Nygma was a computer and electronics genius who was
fascinated with puzzles and riddles since childhood. Extremely
intelligent and a bit odd., he would cheat at school and feel superior
to his classmates. Nygma's obsession and love for committing crimes lead
him to don the guise of "The Riddler." Edward's transformation allows
him to lose all sense of reality. He becomes completely wrapped up in
the evil and criminal behavior which is warping his mind. He needs to be
the Riddler to truly express the real Edward Nygma, in turn completely
separating himself from any normalcy he once had. The Riddler uses a
vast array of computer and electronic gizmos in his arsenal, but is best
known for the lethal use of his "?" cane. It is his trademark. When his
plans are ultimately foiled by Batman, The Riddler's hatred turns to an
obsession to outwit and ultimately destroy Batman. His hatred is fueled
by the surprising intellect Batman posses, which leads to his solving of
Edward's riddles. His twisted mind is only concerned with creating the
ultimate riddle related crime, which Batman can never solve.
