Character Spotlight: Condiment King

Condiment King

The Condiment King, aka Mitchell Mayo, is a comic relief villain that first appeared in the Batman: The Animated Series episode "Make 'Em Laugh" (1994).  He first appeared in comics in Birds of Prey #37 (January 2002), also in a comic relief role, although chronologically he first appeared in Batgirl: Year One #8 (September 2003), where his costume and equipment has a much more home-made vibe.
