Known for his green, question mark-covered costume (either as a skintight catsuit or a business suit and bowler hat).

{Weapon(s)/Ability(ies)}
He has genius-level intelligence. He is a supreme problem-solver, criminal mastermind. He is a genius with brilliant deductive power. His mind excels with puzzles, minds games, and manipulations. He is also an expert detective. He possesses great deductive skills and analytic ability. He is also independently wealthy. Riddler has a vast fortune that he has acquired over years of crime as well as legally.

The Riddler possesses the strength level of a man his age, size and weight who engages in minimal regular exercise. On one occasion however, the Riddler was injected with a dosage of Venom, which imbued him with super-human strength for a short period of time.

He also has weaknesses akin to an average human being. He is compulsively honest. His inability to hide his true intentions and/or motives. He is obsessive compulsive. His riddles are in fact a bizarre obsessive compulsion; his attempts to stop himself from sending them has met with failure time and time again. This extends to the fact he cannot simply kill his opponents when he has the upper hand, but prefers to put them in a deathtrap to see if he can devise a life and death intellectual challenge that the hero cannot escape. However, of Batman's themed enemies, Riddler's compulsion is quite flexible, allowing him to commit any crime as long as he can describe it in a riddle or puzzle.


{Personality}
The Riddler's criminal modus operandi is so deeply ingrained into his personality that he is virtually powerless to stop himself from acting it out. He cannot simply kill his opponents when he has the upper hand; he has to put them in a deathtrap to see if he can devise a life and death intellectual challenge that the hero cannot solve and escape. However, unlike many of Batman's themed enemies, Riddler's compulsion is quite flexible, allowing him to commit any crime as long as he can describe it in a riddle or puzzle.

{Background}
Edward was born into a broken home, his mother was absent and his father was abusive. When Edward was a young boy he became excited at the idea of winning a puzzle contest at school. To increase his likelihood of winning Edward sneaks into school during the night and practices the puzzle until he can solve it with ease. He ends up winning and is awarded a riddle book. Since that time he has mastered puzzles, mindgames and riddles. Edward was profoundly intelligent and would pass tests with apparent ease, something his father out of jealousy couldn't or wouldn't believe, and therefore attributed his success to cheating (supposedly catching him once) and beat him repeatedly so he'll not lie and stay out of trouble. Out of the abuse Edward developed a compulsion he has became known for, he constantly endeavors to tell the truth to prove his innocence. This is where his obsession with riddles comes from. Unfortunately the abuse is also a main factor that drove him to a life of crime.

When Edward got older he left home and became a carnival performer, using his skills to cheat carnival goers out of their money. But this was not enough for him he longed for something more, and becomes the Riddler and pics The Batman, as a adversary, as he believes him to be intelligent and more then worthy opponent. Starting out as a simple informant and criminal profiler for the underworld of Gotham City as well as for Batman. The Riddler slowly became more of a villain to Batman. It wasn't long before he became a main adversary to the Caped Crusader constantly testing his analytical abilities to the limits.
