Batman characters | The Penguin

The PenguinThe Penguin, one of Batman's oldest foes, is an eccentric criminal mastermind, known as much for his love of ornithology and trick umbrellas as for his already shady business dealings. Gotham City's popular Iceberg Lounge serves as Penguin's front for a number of illegal financial activities that fund much of the city's underworld. Despite his short stature, the Penguin is a wily foe whose umbrellas conceal a variety of deadly weapons and gadgets.

In most incarnations, The Penguin is a short, chubby man who wears a tuxedo, top hat, and monocle. A mobster-type criminal, he fancies himself a "gentleman of crime." Unlike most Batman villains, he does not theme his crimes around a psychotic obsession; his intelligence and aristocratic personality starkly contrast against demented Batman villains, such as The Joker. However, he recently became a mobster and nightclub owner who engages in more quiet criminal activity whom Batman tolerates as a source
of criminal underworld information.

The Penguin does however possess a few eccentricities. He is known for his love of birds and his high-tech umbrellas that serve some specialized function, such as hang-gliding and weaponry. He also keeps beautiful women around him; perhaps to remind others of his monetary power or to compensate for his own grotesqueness.

The Penguin batmanThe Penguins Powers and Abilities

The Penguin is a genius with keen analytical mind and a sharp business acumen. He is proficient in areas pertaining to organized crime and business management. He is one of few Batman rogues that is 100% sane, others including Catwoman, Bane, and Ra's al Ghul. He has an uncanny high agility rate and is fast for his body stature, as he is also a master of Judo. Now that he rarely ever strays away from his restaraunt booth, it can be guessed his speed has dwindled over time.
