Character Spotlight: Egghead

Long-time readers of this blog may remember that I've egg-xamined Egghead before, in the Batman (1966) Super Post. Here's what I said about him:


Egghead first appeared in the Batman episode "An Egg Grows in Gotham" (1966) .  His only comics appearance to date was a cameo in Batman: Shadow of the Bat #3-4 (August-September 1992), although a few years before that, he was mentioned by the Riddler in Secret Origins Special #1 (June 1989).

But that was a long time ago, 2011 to be egg-xact. And the times are a-changin'! Just like with Bookworm and Grey Ghost, Gotham Academy seems to be the repository for great characters that don't have a use anywhere else. And that's exactly where Egghead shows up, in Gotham Academy #15 (February 2016). I don't know what he teaches, but his real name is apparently Edgar Heed.
