Biography[edit | edit source]

One of Gotham City's top criminals, Penguin almost always tries to cover up his criminal activities with some other false enterprise. He often pretends to be going straight, claiming to be a legitimate businessman, and usually wins the hearts of all Gothamites before revealing his true motives. He also loves discrediting Batman and Robin. However, Batman always wins out because he doesn't concern himself with popular opinion, his dedication to solving the crime at hand allows him to cut right to the heart of Penguin's schemes. Penguin also fancies himself to be quite the ladies' man. He carries himself with an aristocratic air and is always formally attired. A cigarette is always on hand, and since he is one for the more refined tastes, Penguin uses a cigarette holder.
