The RiddlerThe Riddler is a fictional character, a villain in Gotham City, the home of Batman in the DC Comics series.
Edward Nigma, the Riddler, is a man who delights in the setting up of a crime, and in forewarning the police (and Batman) of his upcoming capers. These warnings are always sent in the form of a riddle. The Riddler discovered how fun and challenging puzzles were when he was a young boy (he cheated on a puzzle in school to win a prize), and he gradually turned to crime as he got older. The Riddler often has two female assistants (whose names sometimes differ) that help him, Quiz and Query.
In the 1960s Batman television series and spin-off movie, the Riddler was played by Frank Gorshin. In Batman: The Animated Series, the Riddler was played by John Glover. Jim Carrey portrayed the Riddler in the movie Batman Forever.
