The Riddler is a student at Super Hero High School who, much to his namesake, asks riddles to demonstrate his intelligence and cunning. While Wonder Woman was feeling awkward in the dining hall, Riddler asked her if she wanted to hear a riddle. Wonder Woman obliged but kept walking in search of a seat. Riddler also was caught blocking the entrance to the library and refusing to let anyone in until they answered his riddle. During training for the 100th Annual Super Triathlon, Riddler kept showing up and joking he was the alternate's alternate.

For the school dance, Riddler wanted a date who understood him. He came up with a series of crimes and riddles that would lead his would-be date to him in the Centennial Park flower beds. First, he unleashed cats onto Metropolis. The last cat captured had his first clue attached to a string tied around its neck. It led Batgirl, Hawkgirl, and Flash to the clock tower across the Daily Planet. They found a man tied upside down to the clock face. They untied him and Batgirl found a second note tied to his back. Batgirl realized it led them to the Centennial Park flower beds. As they ran to the beds, Flash and Hawkgirl were caught in a net. Hawkgirl urged Batgirl to go on without them and catch the perp. Batgirl found the Riddler. He offered a rose and asked Batgirl to the dance. She turned him down and put a handcuff on him for breaking and entering, kidnapping, assault, and insulting her good taste. Riddler lamented she was breaking his heart and pinching his sensitive wrist skin.
