Oops, you're absolutely right, I forgot there were two stories in that one... Credit should go to Max Allan Collins

Yup, though IIRC that was the story that told us he was a mutant with a resistance to cold. ;->

>and in Manhunter, where we saw what the Penguin does in his off-time.

Dare I ask???

Nothing all that odd for him really... pretenses toward high culture and lengthy bubble baths. The latter's where Mark Shaw busted him for a parole violation. Seeing him taken into custody wearing nothing but his top hat's a life-scarring moment. \:\)
