THE RIDDLER (DC COMICS)

I don't think anyone has done The Riddler right. Almost any outfit I've seen him in looks like a Joker rip-off. He's supposed to be a crazy genius, so I wanted to give him some personality and reflect that. I thought about giving him mismatched clothing that almost didn't make sense. I imagined him wearing a mask right away, though I can't tell you why. Perhaps he hides his identity while he stalks his victims. I couldn't quite shake the Anonymous vibe with the mask and the hood, and I began thinking of him as a hacker. I think that'd be a good modern take on the character, with cryptology as his preferred language.
