Behind the scenes

  • In the DC comics, the Riddler, Edward Nygma, is a criminal mastermind and enemy of Batman who commits crimes revolving around an obsession with riddles. His first appearance in the comics was Detective Comics #140. After discovering Bruce Wayne's secret identity, the Riddler teamed up with Tommy Elliot to take their shared revenge.
  • Previously, an E. Nigma was featured in the Arrowverse. It is currently impossible to confirm whether the two are the same in-universe, but both mentions reference the same character.
