Not much is known of the Puzzler's background, only that he has obviously had extensive education in Shakespeare, one that rivals or perhaps surpasses Batman's own. He is constantly quoting a line from plays, often from Macbeth, his personal favourite. He also has an interest in flying, as most of his crimes have an aviatic theme.

Just as Batman and Robin do not go at crime-fighting alone, Gotham City's most notorious villains need fellow partners in crime to assist them with their malicious schemes.

Rocket O'Rourke- her dream was to become a movie star, and thought that working with Puzzler would somehow lead her to this end. She is also attracted to the jewellry she gets as reward for helping him. Her most important task was to slip a sleeping potion into Artemis Knab's drink while pretending to be auditioning for a movie. She did not get a call-back.

Glider, Blimpy, and Ramjet- henchmen


To some people villainy is a job; but, unlike the rest of the law-abiding citizens of Gotham City, villains do not work in an office, factory, or from their own homes. They must establish a 'hideout' from which they can organize and orchestrate their evil deeds.


From time to time, those nasty villains would resort to insults. What follows are the names used by Puzzler.
