Myrtle Jenkins was a former classmate of Edward Nygma at Hilltop Elementary.


Myrtle became interested with Nygma after his crimes went public and she followed his rise to become The Riddler by reading every news article and police file about him. She orchestrated a plan to break into The Iceberg Lounge, to free Nygma who had been cryogenically frozen by Oswald Cobblepot and put him on display as the club's centerpiece. After successfully freeing Nygma from The Iceberg Lounge, she nursed him back to health to restrengthen his muscles after being frozen but discovered that he suffered some sort of brain damage after being frozen for so long. She was later killed by Victor Zsasz after Penguin found out she freed Ed.[1]
