R is for Riddler #AtoZChallenge

For the A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of antagonists.

On my normal blogging days, Monday – parenting and Thursday – writing/publishing, I will tie that day’s topic to antagonists but on the other days (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday), I will write about antagonists from movies, TVs or books. On Wednesdays, my Quote of the Week will be from an antagonist that matches the letter of the day. Enjoy.

R is for the Riddler, the supervillain and adversary to DC Comic’s Batman. Edward Nigma (aka the Riddler) first appeared in the comics in 1948. He delights in incorporating riddles and puzzles into his criminal plots. He is a smooth-talking character with a high IQ who often sends complex clues to Batman and the police.

The Riddler is often seen wearing a green suit and bowler hat or in a green unitard with questions marks printed on it. And of course there is his infamous question mark cane.

Frank Gorshin played the Riddler in the 1966 film Batman. Jim Carrey portrayed him in Batman Forever (1995). Carrey’s charismatic performance was one of the highlights of the film. (“Riddle me this, riddle me that, who’s afraid of the big, black bat?)

  1. Jim Cary’s version of the Riddler always sticks with me too. He was brilliant in the role.
