The World's Finest Presents



The Penguin
Voiced By: Tom Kenny
First Appearance: "The Call of the Cobblepot"
Position: Criminal

Bio (Official): Oswald Cobblepot, like Bruce, is an ostensible billionaire in his 20s – but the similarities stop there. Unlike Bruce, "Ozzy" is rude, selfish, arrogant and homely – a grotesque penguin-bodied character – essentially, the “anti-Bruce!” While Gotham’s other villains may have it out for The Batman, Cobblepot is unique in that his scorn is often directed at Bruce Wayne, who serves as a constant reminder of everything Cobblepot is not. Employing the use of highly trained birds and an arsenal of deadly umbrellas, Penguin, as he calls himself, is determined to rebuild the Cobblepot fortune by criminal means.

Bio (The Batman vs. Dracula): After being told by a cellmate in Arkham that he hid a ton of cash in the Gotham Cemetery, The Joker and Penguin broke out to look for it. While Joker tussled with The Batman, Penguin searched for the treasure. The Penguin was unsuccessful in his search for the gold, but he did find the tomb of Count Dracula.

Accidentally cutting himself on his umbrella knife, Penguin dripped his blood onto Dracula’s shriveled corpse. The blood hit the heart and Dracula’s body immediately began to regenerate. After sucking the blood from a nearby cemetery guard, Dracula recruited Penguin to be his “tomb keeper” while he slept during the day. Penguin resisted at first, but after being put under Dracula’s mind control, he was forced to accept.

Penguin eventually snapped out of Dracula’s control once Dracula died. He was apprehended by the cops after he was found in a tomb with Vicki Vale and a whole lot of cash and gold.

Bio: On top of attempting to kill Alfred after their first meeting, Penguin declared revenge on both The Batman and Bruce Wayne. Despising Wayne's pretty boy image, Penguin went to the manner in an effor to get rid of Wayne once and for all. The Batman interfered with Penguin's plans ("What? How did you know I was here?!" "It's my job to know") and eventually returned Penguin to jail once again.

Upon escaping, Penguin teamed up with Catwoman in an effort to steal two powerful, ancient Egyptian statues that give the holder the ability to expel and use the power of light. Double-crossing Catwoman, Penguin stole both statues, hand-cuffed The Batman and Catwoman, and fled. Though he attempted to destroy Gotham, Penguin was unsuccessful, as the team he created was too deadly for both his Kabuki Twins and Penguin to fight.
