I really liked this story! You did a great job with the Riddler! I felt like I was watching an episode of Batman: The Animated Series which is one of my all time favorite shows! I have all 4 volumes on dvd.
It was kinda spooky. But honestly, Mockridge had it coming! Keep up the great writing :)

Chilling. This is exactly how the Riddler would kill his enemy.

Heh this was funny and kind of scary at the same time. I think you captured the Riddler perfectly, and I agree, Mockridge had it coming.

I always thought it was a bit strange Mockridge was just left alone in the series - I can't imagine the vengeful TAS Riddler just leaving things be like that. Also I loved the Frank Gorshin giggle at the end. Very nice job. :)

I knew the punchline from the first paragraph, but it was still a fun read.

Even knowing that, I still got a laugh at the punchline.

Well done, and a wonderful use on a classic riddle.

The riddle always scared me the most (next to the Scarecrow.) Though he is quirky when it comes to riddles, he is one of the few villains he still has some sanity in him (Joker is just plain nuts. Your everyday psychotic sicko)

He is also the few that escaped Batman on the first trial as a villain. Who has bragging rights to that. In one episode, he alsmost killed Batman. (The ending was funny as he was screaming all over the Asylam that his plan was perfet and he should not have escaped.)

Now THIS is how that episode should have ended. Or at least, this should have been a follow-up episode to "If You're So Smart..."

Daniel Mockridge SO had it coming. This is a GREAT oneshot. I really enjoyed your writing and your portrayal of the Riddler was spot-on. The part where Nygma started laughing, starting with a giggle and moving to a full-out cackle, sent chills up my spine. Really great work here, and the ending was awesome.

Spooky!

I liked the way the integrated the riddle itself into the outcome of the story. Too many people miss that aspect of structure when working with the Riddler, but I imagine it's because you started with the riddle and worked backwards. I bet you a dollar that two minutes after this vignette ended, Batman swooped in, punched the bowler hat off of Nygma's head and saved Mockridge - damn it all.

(Also, Mockridge was the corporate chair of Competitron; but most companies combine the role of the chair with the role of the executive officer these days.)

My only criticism would be that the beginning was a little drawn out for the overall length of the piece. Next time, don't be afraid to dive right into the action, especially with oneshots.

You did do a very good job! Riddler is an awesome Batman villain... And it's interesting seeing a villain succeed in his task and not having Batman interrupt him...

A dark story... Riddler has a tendency to be the more "campy" villain of the Rogue Gallery... if he ever shows up at all...

So, it's always interesting to see a story that shows his dark side...

You should write Riddler more often. Perhaps a psychological piece...

"I didn't want to leave you a clue, you know. But I couldn't stop. You have to help me because I think there might be something wrong... I think I might actually be crazy..." - Riddler...

From a comic, I think... I've seen the quote floating around somewhere...

Dude, this is freak'n awesome! I love the Riddler, he's definitely one of my faves!

I've heard that riddle before in that Riddler website. I could never get it...

I really hate Mockridge, too.

I'm with you on your point of view of Mockridge which is why i loved this story. You did a good job sticking to the Riddler's personality. Hope you write more soon!
