Biography Edit

Gideon Peale was the owner of an art gallery in Gotham City. The Riddler pretended to rob the gallery, going so far as to give the appearance of holding Gideon Peale at gunpoint. However, he was actually just lighting Gideon's cigarette with a gun-shaped cigarette lighter.

Batman and Robin smashed their way into the gallery under the pretense of rescuing Gideon. They apprehended the Riddler, who then explained the situation and promptly sued them for wrongful arrest.
