Which MIMOBOT has been played by Jim Carrey, has been referred to as a cheap knock off of the Joker and has his very own Method Man song?
Do you give up?
Take your time.
No rush really I’ve got all day.
THAT’S RIGHT!!! The Riddler!
But you know what? It’s not really fair to call him a Joker knock off. Riddles aren’t jokes. They’re…well… riddles. While the Joker finds joy in chaos, destruction and just pissing off Batman in general, The Riddler isn’t in it for any of that. He just wants to show off how much smarter he is.
That’s right folks. Back in 1948, the kid who raised his hand first—highest and hardest—every time the teacher asked a question, donned a green suit covered in question marks. He has spent every waking moment since then thumbing his nose at everybody in Gotham who can’t name all the Greek philosophers in order of birth date.
But that’s not all there is to him it seems. For somebody who’s so smart, he gets caught fairly easily. Not only that, but at one point he saw fit to give up his life of crime and become a private eye assisting the likes of the Gotham City Sirens, Commissioner Gordon, and yes, even the world’s greatest detective Batman. However all of that is short-lived and Edward Nygma soon returned to crime with the aid of his daughter, Enigma, which lead most readers to say, “Her name is Enigma Nygma? REALLY?!”
In the New 52, The Riddler has been rebooted and re-stylized and now rocks a green mohawk in the shape of a question mark. But we here at Mimoco love the classics so our Limited Edition The Riddler X MIMOBOT is just that—classic.
