Penny Cobblepot – the only explanation is that Penny is – or was – his wife? Or a daughter? This is the first we have learned of this. We know that Penguin had a son to Christy, who worked at one of his nightclubs. But have we ever seen Penny before?

There have been Penny and Penelope Cobblepots mentioned before as his daughter – but only in fanfiction that I can see. Could this be fannon becoming canon? What is the Batman's involvement? And how will this affect the Penguin's arrangements with Bane?

But we also have dates. The Penguin is 48 this year. And Penny was 20.

Uh oh. Just done a google. Guess what live for up to twenty years?
