Professor Pyg Is Both Creepy & Charming in New Gotham Clip

Ever since its first season, Fox's Gotham has made a point of featuring versions of not only the more notable villains in Batman's rogues' gallery, but its more obscure ones as well. The latest instance of the latter, Professor Pyg, is ready to make his eerie presence felt on this week's episode.

Fans of the series, however, can get a quick glimpse of "A Dark Knight: Hog Day Afternoon" ahead of its airing in this clip featuring the porcine-themed psychopath holding James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) hostage. Naturally, creepiness ensues just in time for Halloween weekend.


Created by Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert in Batman #666, Lazlo Valentin (AKA Professor Pyg) is a deranged schizophrenic who is obsessed with making people "perfect" in his eyes. To achieve this, Pyg transforms his victims into "Dollotrons" by bonding doll masks to their faces via the usage of ice picks, drills and hammers.
