The Bookworm

Sure, the Riddler might be my favorite Batman villain…but how could you go not love Roddy McDowall as the Bookworm?

    The bookworm was always my favorite villain. My mom even made me a little book light (nonfunctional) to affix to a hat.

  2. Vin, tell me you still wear that attached to your hat. The Bookworm would only expect it of you…don’t let him down. ;)
