    That's a little closer.

    The way I see the Penguin is more like Chuck Dixon's version, or John Ostrander's version from the Penguin Triumphant one-shot.

    DC came around when it comes to The Riddler. They realized that just because he's funny looking doesn't mean he should be comedy relief. I would much prefer they took the same perspective on the Penguin. Any of Batman's Rogues Gallery should be very formidable. They should be the best there is at what they do. I don't mind him having a sense of humor, but I want to see him be hard to beat at the same time. When they show these territorial battles and he always loses, it doesn't make sense.


Evenmore when you realise that he is perhaps the only villain who has won against Batman !

Crime did pay for the Penguin.

He has managed to get exactly what he wanted when he started his criminal career : fame, money, et cetera.
