The Riddler (Edward Nigma) takes delight in incorporating riddles and puzzles into his criminal plots, often leaving them as clues for the authorities and Batman to solve. The character is one of Batman's most enduring enemies and is typically portrayed as a smooth-talking character with a high IQ. But this is tempered by his intense narcissism, histrionic behavior, underlying egomania, and his obsessive-compulsive need to devise and disseminate his riddles and puzzles.
After a teacher announces that a contest will be held over who can solve a puzzle the fastest, a young Edward Nigma sets his sights on winning this, craving the glory and satisfaction that will come with the victory. He sneaks into the school one night, takes the puzzle out of the teacher's desk, and practices it until he is able to solve it in under a minute. As predicted, he wins the contest and is given a book about riddles as a prize. His cheating rewarded, Edward embraced the mastery of puzzles of all kinds, eventually becoming a carnival employee who excelled at cheating his customers out of their money with his bizarre puzzles and mind games. He soon finds himself longing for greater challenges and thrills, and dons the disguise of the "Riddler" to challenge Batman, believing him to be a worthy adversary.The Riddler has a working relationship with the Cluemaster, although he initially resents the villain for seemingly copying his modus operandi.
