Death of a super villain

A ball-point banana? Posted by Hello

Frank Gorshin, who was perfect as the Riddler in the Batman TV show, died today of lung cancer. Along with Ceaser Romero as the Joker, Eartha Kitt as Catwoman and Burgess Meredith as the Penguin, Gorshin was one of the top supervillains of that camp classic. He also, strangley enough, performed on the Ed Sullivan show that introduced the Beatles to America.

The Riddler has always been treated as a second class Joker, but I like him. Oh, how the other super-villains would curse his need to leave clues for Batman. But he needed the challange. You gotta like that.
