The Penguin is one of Batman's most notorious and oldest arch rival from the DC comics. He was introduced December 1941 in Detective Comics #58 by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger. The Penguin's alter ego is Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot. The villain was originally a short fat mobster and thief in Gotham City. He called himself a "gentleman of crime" and walks around in a tuxedo suit and top hat with high tech umbrellas. In the movie Batman Returns, the Penguin became a more monstrous villain with birdlike attributes like penguins. Today, the super villain continues to be a popular foe against the dynamic duo in comic book and animated television. This year new official Penguin costumes were released with other Batman villain costumes for Halloween. Check out the following Batman character costumes that are currently on sale.
