I'm Batman

McGriddle me this!

Shortpacked!@TNI: Fair is fair.
Shortpacked!: Is there a SPLAT?  Twitter sure thought there would be!

So, hey, I have a Riddler now!  One of my old-time readers, Mike Wickliff, had an extra one just sitting around his place gathering dust, and so he graciously donated it to my cause.  And by "cause" I mean "The Batman Punches Everyone Foundation." 

'Cuz everyone knows that beating up the Ridder is Batman's favorite past time.  It's listed under his interests on his Facebook profile right next to "avenging the death of my parents by warring on all criminals."  (No, Batman does not want to join your dumb Zombie app.)

The Riddler's kinda a beefy one, for a The Riddler.  His body is recycled from, y'know, Clark Kent. Technically, he's friggin' Superman with a new head.  He's not musclebound by any means, but he does have a pair of pretty wide shoulders under that new noggin of his.  Riddler's DCUC design here is pretty close to my mental image of Riddler.  I dig the suit over the more iconic tights, and his nose and chin are nice and pointy. 

Articulation-wise, he's pretty limited.  The suitcoat prevents most useful movement of his hips, and his elbow and knee poseability is pretty shallow anyhow.  He's definitely not gonna be replicating any Jim Carrey moves! 

Oh, and mine has two left legs.  That's weird.  I didn't actually notice until the second day, so it's not terribly noticeable, but whatcha gonna do.

I have a Joker, Penguin, and Two-Face coming in the mail soon!  My Batman Rogues Gallery is growing.
