Since childhood, Eddie Nashton used puzzles to outwit his opponents, habitually cheating to ensure he would win. Beginning the life of crime as a simple conman using puzzles to cheat people of their money, Nashton yearned to earn big money.


Adopting a unique approach to crime he provided clues to his capers in the form of puzzles and riddles. Taunting the police and the vigilante known as the Batman, he assumed the identity of the Riddler.
