Cosmo Krank is a character in Gotham.

History

Cosmo Krank is the son of Griffin Krank, an assassin known as The Toy Maker,[1] who worked at Krank Toys and Models in The Narrows. When Jim Gordon and Lucius Fox visit the toy store following the bomb-rigged attempt on Lee Thompkins' life, Cosmo was asked if anyone else worked here and states that his father was upstars as he goes to get him. After some near encounters with a large nutcracker with a gun and an explosive robot, Gordon and Fox run outside and see Griffin running as Cosmo stops them to keep them harming his father. Cosmo stated that he doesn't know why his father would try an attack on someone and that he had heard his father conversing with someone for a hit. Though Cosmo didn't know who the person was. As Gordon and Fox leave the toy store, they tell the arriving police officers that Griffin's son is still inside.[2]

Trivia

  • Cosmo Krank alias the Toymaker is a villain created specifically for the 2004 animated series The Batman. He was potrayed as the C.E.O. of Krank Co., a company that produced incredibly futuristic but dangerous toys. When Bruce Wayne lead a campaign for safe toys and eventually closed the toy factory down, Krank created the identity of the Toymaker in order to get revenge using toys of his own design as weapons.
  • Whereas Griffin Krank uses antique toys as weapons in Gotham, Cosmo used futuristic toys in The Batman.
  • Even though the character has not appeared in the comic books, or outside of The Batman or Gotham, his toy shop was previously seen in the video games Batman: Arkham City (2011) and Batman: Arkham Knight (2015), serving as a precedent for the character to make future appearances in other media.
