  • I don't know how much of it is true by I found an explanation here :
  • The Penguin is , a DC Comics supervillain who is one of oldest, most persistent enemies. The Penguin was introduced by artist and writer Bill Finger, making his debut in Detective Comics #58 (December 1941). The Penguin is a short, rotund man known for his love of birds and his specialized high-tech umbrellas. A mobster and thief, he fancies himself a "gentleman of crime"; his nightclub business provides a cover for more low-key criminal activity, which Batman tolerates as a source of criminal underworld information. According to co-creator Bob Kane, the character was inspired from the then advertising mascot of cigarettes — a penguin with a top hat and cane. Bill Finger also thought the image of high-society gentlemen in tuxedos was reminiscent.

    thank you.
