Anonymous asked you:
Eddie and the Cobblepot are actually friends? I wouldn’t have thought the Riddler’s ego would allow it. When did this happen?
I’m not sure how exactly it happened, but during the all-too-short period between One Year Later and Battle for the Cowl, Batman writers and/or editors seemed to decide that Eddie (as a reformed private eye who still had—or at least claimed to have—partial amnesia following a head injury) and Ozzie should be odd friends of a sort. The only example I can remember off-hand is from the otherwise-abysmal Gotham Underground mini-series, which had a few great moments of their friendship:
Based on this, I think what caused them to bond was the fact that they were both intellectual, snobbish, social villains who are both in different areas of being “reformed.” Even when the story made it look like that Ozzie betrayed Eddie and sent him to be killed, it was all just a ploy to save Eddie’s life. Again, the actual story itself is a pile of hot steaming shit, but the Eddie/Ozzie stuff almost makes the nine-issue slog worthwhile.
There was real potential to be explored from the exchange in the panels above, so naturally, leave it to Tony Daniel (and/or Batman group editor Mike Marts) to piss it all away when they decided to un-amnesia the Riddler with a well-timed explosion that turned him evil again because comics.
Man, fuck that. This served absolutely no purpose other than as a spiteful attempt to… what, make the Riddler just a jerk who doesn’t like anyone? I honestly don’t see the reasoning here why Daniel would go out of his way to destroy any mere ideas that the Riddler and Penguin could be friends.
Well, realistically, I’m not sure they really could be, when all’s said and done. They’re both seriously egotistical villains, and it’s just as likely that they wouldn’t be able to stand one another, especially depending on WHICH versions of either characters we’re talking about on any given day. Like, how would the neck-tattooed Bishie!Riddler get along with the Tom Kenny Penguin of Teh Batmans? I dunno, which versions of these characters would get along the best?
Tic-tacs are those small sweets that taste of mint, yes?
I would trade both of my supposed fathers for half of one.
I would give mine away for free.
