Ventriloquist was one of the best classic-style Batvillains in years, probably the last of them. A simple, warped gimmick, a schizoid personality who has a criminal genius mentality, acting it all out through a ventriloquist dummy.

The supernatural element to his origin seems completely bizarre and adds nothing of real interest to the concept IMHO.

I agree with you. adding the supernatural element took away from wesker and made the block of wood more powerful. I liked the different direction you could take with ventriquolist, like they did with Mr. Socko, and the quake master. It just makes for fun stories.
