Good evening. I'm Jack Ryder, and this is Summer Gleeson's Gotham Insider.

 

Tonight is the first of our new series of investigations about Gotham's most peculiar phenomenon : costumed criminals and their secret origins, featuring for the first time a live interview with Gotham's most puzzling criminal, the Riddler.

Mister Nygma has joined us on screen - so, uh, RIDDLER... When did you begin your career as a costumed criminal ?

Is that a RIDDLE ?

When is a door into the past...

When is a door into uncertainty...

When is a door NOT A DOOR ?

 

Riddles always obsessed me as a child. We all ask RIDDLES, don't we ? And we know them... A body of lore possessed by every kiddie.

What's YELLOW and DANGEROUS ?

Shark infested custard !

 

I've always been the Riddler. I always will be.

Maybe it started very young, tricking playmates with fake BRAIN TEASERS...

Or cheating in a school history contest, photographing a JIGSAW PUZZLE...

Maybe I was a COMPUTER GAME DESIGNER, Edward Nygma, the Puzzle King, Conundrum Champion, Wizard of Quiz... Maybe I decided to turn my talents to crime after I've been robbed of my game ideas by DAN MOCKRIDGE...

 

Maybe I wanted to join Gotham's world-famous carnival rogue gallery, and match wits with... with the BATMAN, for the glory...

The fame... The buck$...
