The Riddler is an enemy of Batman whose crimes revolve around his obsession with riddles. His psychosis results from a deep inner need to prove that he is smarter than others, which causes him to leave challenging clues behind in otherwise perfect crimes. This has lead to him being repeatedly imprisoned in Arkham Asylum. Despite this obvious flaw, he is an extremely intelligent criminal mastermind. He has been associated with the Legion of Doom and the Secret Society of Super-Villains.
When the Justice League come to remove the patients of Arkham, only to be resisted by Batman, the Riddler watches the heroes argue and witnessing Zsasz and Mad Hatter's relocation from the Asylum. He begins to make a riddle but Cyborg orders him to be silent. Cyborg next plans to remove him but is stopped by Batman when he activates a virus he had uploaded into Cyborg. Riddler is freed by Harley Quinn alongside all the other inmates to attack the heroes.
The Riddler is seen about to crush Batman's head with a large rock but hesitates as he tries to think of a riddle to say before committing the act, allowing Green Arrow to knock him out with a boxing glove arrow. Riddler is furiously beaten down by Robin, right before he accidentally kills Nightwing.
