How Penguin joined the Tourney
Oswald Cobblepot, heir to the Cobblepot dynasty, is in constant conflict with Bruce Wayne over the Wayne Family's near bankrupting of the Cobblepot Family in the hospitality industry. This led Oswald to eventually purchase The Iceberg Lounge where he employed an anything goes sensibility. Gambling ran rampant through the Lounge and those who couldn't pay were either put into a private torture room or were killed.
With one such client that couldn't pay a bar room brawl broke out resulting in a broken beer bottle being lodged in Penguin's face, a favor which Cobblepot repaid by taking both the client's eyes, as well as leaving the client wandering blindly through the freeway at rush hour. After seeing the finest doctors it was determined that the removal of the bottle would result in death. Penguin became content with it, believing that it made him look "unique." In addition, due to his hatred of the Waynes, he never stops laughing about their deaths at the hands of a mugger as well as Bruce Wayne's status as an orphan as a result upon learning about their deaths, even going as far to state that it "couldn't have happened to nicer people." One night, while in Arkham Asylum, he spotted a certain Hokuto Ryuken practitioner killing several guards and inmates with wind techniques. When Penguin demanded his name, he said he was Han then jumped away. Penguin crossed his fingers while grinning slyly at Han.
