The penguin was British?
A whole game of Batman beating up the mentally handicapped!
Funny you should say that, as the penguin is one of extremely few batman villains that ISN'T somehow mentally ill.
I think the penguin was supposed to be the dark reflection of Bruce Wayne, being rich and orphaned like batman but turning into a life of crime. He is also supposed to be deformed, isn't he?
Sometimes he's been ostracized by his rich family. Sometimes his overprotective mother died when he was young and all his pet birds were taken away to pay her debts.
Penguin is typically sent to Blackgate Penitentiary because he is of sound mind and thus fully responsible for his crimes. His character design tends to fluctuate between Burton's deformed hunchback character and the short, overweight guy in nice duds that he was originally envisioned to be.
His father died of pneumonia and so his mother insisted he always carry around an umbrella in case of rain. Because of his fat belly, hunched back, and long nose, the other children at school tormented him. Eventually he decided to embrace the idea of being an outcast and designed superscience gadgets that allowed him to control birds.
He's one of the few criminals who has cleaned up his act in the comics (well, sort of). He has become a successful nightclub owner and manages the Iceberg Lounge, but uses his old criminal connections to fence stolen property and broker information.
I really hope this isn't Mark Hammill's last go at the Joker.
I believe it will be the last go around for both Hamill as the Joker.

They based him off Jim Sterling.

5 for being legitimately surprised at the ending.
The inclusion of Soloman Grundy and Poison Ivy in the first game concrete my opinion that this is basically a slightly darker version of the Animated Series version of Batman. Which is fine by me because it's what I consider real Batman.
I don't believe Grundy was in the first one, Killer Croc was though.
I mean Soloman here, Ivy and Croc in the first.
So The Penguin is Rupert Murdoch?
