I’m not saying that Riddler would be the best dad because lets be real. He can barely care for himself let alone another human being. Bedtime? What bedtime? Healthy diet? Ha! a structured environment that provides a sense of control and safety? How does getting being tossed around from foster parent to foster sound? Basic safety considers??? Hey let’s let this child dress up in spandex and do crime. He’d be one of the worst influences on that child and give them a hole heap of issues that their future therapist will have the privilege of dealing with.
You know what else he’d do??
Transfer a ton of money to the child’s foster parents to ensure that his child is well provided for and has a good education. Have Query and Echo rob an ice cream truck because they didn’t stop for his child. Check under the bed for monsters and agree to sleep in their room when that wasn’t enough. Break out of Arkham to visit special holidays such as birthdays and Christmas. Skim over a ton of parenting websites. Just doing his best to be the parent that his parents never were for him.
Riddler isn’t the best father, but he giving it his best and that’s really important to me.
