Arkham City Bio
The Penguin is an eccentric criminal mastermind known for his shady business dealings. Born into the wealthy Cobblepot family, Oswald was sent overseas for school as a boy. When his family hit hard times, Cobblepot immersed himself in a criminal education on the streets of London.
Years later, he re-emerged as the Penguin, a black-market arms dealer in Gotham, facilitating the illegal financial activities that fund much of the city's underworld.
The Penguin seems to be prospering within Arkham City as the leader of it's emerging black market.

Image

Additional Information
The Penguin's alias first came from a childhood taunt, leveled by bullies who teased him because of his grotesque appearance and love of birds. Though hating the nickname, Cobblepot found this alias made him more known in the criminal underworld. In keeping with his family's tradition of wealth, the Penguin lives a life of crime, yet executes it with his class and style, including buying the now infamous Iceberg Lounge; guests who have included Bruce Wayne and even The Joker. Unlike most of Batman's rogue gallery, the Penguin is completely sane, making him certainly a unique opponent for the Dark Knight. Thanks to TheJester.

Possible role in Arkham 3
Penguin is a man who needs to be in control If someone wants it, I like to think Ive got it. and if a gang war takes place, Penguin will try his damnedest to gain control, but after Arkahm city his numbers have dwindled, so he must find a way to recruit many for his army if he wants to tackle the likes of Two-Face and Black Mask.Penguin is a danger to both Batman and Bruce Wayne, wanting revenge for the humiliating defeat he suffered at the hands of Batman and still holding his grudge against Bruce (who he most likely hates more after the events of Arkham city). You can bet your best trick-umbrella that Penguin won't be stuck in his display case prison for long and once he breaks out, someone's going to pay. Since Batman and Freeze were the ones who put him there you can bet that they'll be number one on his list. Maybe Cobblepot is going to kidnap Freeze's wife and use him as a hitman while holding her ransom. Penguin's also going to need to re-establish himself in Gotham's underworld possibly by going to war with Two-Face or Black Mask. With Freeze as a henchman and Joker out of the picture, will anything be able to stop this crazy bird from taking over the city? Thanks to Crane & Hush__.

Essential reading
No Mans Land Vol. 2, Detective Comics #58, Brightest Day, Penguin: Pain and Prejudice Thanks to TheJester.

Chances of appearing in Arkham 3: 7/10. Penguin will want revenge, however his role in Arkham City was big enough to be able to leave him out of the next game.

Chances of Appearing in Arkham 3:
A popular 7/10. He may be inactive for now, but no one messes with The Penguin. I'm sure he'll escape and return to his villainous ways.

6/10 He'll atleast get some exposure because even the likes of scarface, who did nothing really-plot wise in both games had an appearance. I think we may see a commercial for the Iceberg Lounge or see him as a victim of something or someone. :blackmask:

8/10. I would love for him to come back, he' was great. They'll have to give him a bit of a new motivation though.

Essential viewing? "Birds of a Feather" from BTAS. This is one of the saddest, best and most overlooked episodes of the show.
I'm crazy enough to take on Batman, but the IRS?! No thank you!

8/10

The Penguin was represented amazingly in AC as far as appearance, demeanor, and voice acting..... It was all spot on and I think he's just too involved and too major of a character now for RS to leave him out of Arkham 3.....Whether its just selling guns or another major role in the storyline The Penguin will be involved somehow.....The detail and attention RS gave to his Museum and his Iceberg Lounge was incredible and I would love to see more of it in Arkham 3

Chances of appearing in Arkham 3: 7/10 Probably my favorite character in Arkham city would love if he returned ::D Great voice, great appearance and his museum was pretty awesome. ::D

Penguin was voiced really well by Nolan North in Batman: Arkham City. Loved the character in the game and I thought it was a triumphant moment beating him and watching Mister Freeze squish his hand and threaten him. lol :heath: . It would be nice to see him again in the next game, but not as big of a role in AC. 6/10 chance of appearing in the next game. :penguin:
Thanks for the entertainment, Bats!~Joker

Additional Information: “I’m what you might call: a collector.” A dangerous mob-boss with an obsession for rare-items, trick umbrellas, and a certain flightless bird, Oswald Cobblepot does everything with style: whether it’s hosting a banquet for Gotham’s upper-class in his Iceberg Lounge or warring with other gangs for control of Gotham’s underworld. Being bullied, beaten, and injured time after time over the course of his life and constant gang-wars with Joker, Two-Face, Black Mask, and the rest of Gotham’s scum have hardened Penguin into a brutal and merciless figure. This foul-tempered fowl will stop at nothing to be the best and always gets lots of bang for his buck. He is determined to see his name put above all other's: The Penguin will instil more fear than Joker, Two-Face, or even Scarecrow; and Cobblepot will be the classiest name around, instead of those hated Waynes.

Possible Role in A3: You can bet your best trick-umbrella that Penguin won't be stuck in his display case prison for long and once he breaks out, someone's going to pay. Since Batman and Freeze were the ones who put him there you can bet that they'll be number one on his list. Maybe Cobblepot is going to kidnap Freeze's wife and use him as a hitman while holding her ransom. Penguin's also going to need to re-establish himself in Gotham's underworld possibly by going to war with Two-Face or Black Mask. With Freeze as a henchman and Joker out of the picture, will anything be able to stop this crazy bird from taking over the city?

Chances of Appearing: 9/10

Loved Nolan North's voice in AC. I expect him to be back and kicking for A3.

Is anyone else going to write an additional info this time? What happened to the days when 4 or 5 people duked it out for bragging rights? Now it seems like all you have to do to get posted is actually bother to write something...where's the fun in that? Let's bring some spirit back to these and make them fun and competative again.
