(or, The Evolution of the Penguin Throughout Batman's History)

In August of 2003, while casting about for a character to play on Project Infinity MUX, I landed on the idea of applying for the Penguin. I was looking for a villain with a singular schtick as well as a sense of humor, cunning as well as ruthless, and perhaps - because I'm just that way - a little silly, but still capable of real evil. I had set my sights originally on Doctor Octopus from Spiderman fame, but then it's a little hard to hide four ten-foot steel tentacles under your raincoat whenever you want to pop down to the Quik-Stop for an Almond Joy. Besides, Otto's not that much for cracking jokes, let alone a smile. Anyways, although I did get the character, I never really did wind up being able to play him that much (can you believe few people actually wanted to scene with the Penguin??). But I still decided to make a website for him.

So, what will you find here? Well, information - raw or otherwise - on the character of the Penguin, as he has appeared in the comics, animation, and live action (television as well as movies). Oh yeah, and I threw in some information on penguins themselves, because I felt like it. If you have some information I can add to this site, and you're wondering if I want it, yes please. 8^) Do send it along, my email addy's at the bottom of the page.
