Tweedledee last edited by Lots42 on 11/26/20 10:58AM View full history


Deever Tweed and his cousin Dumfree resemble each other so strongly that you would take them for identical twins. They are in fact cousins, known as Tweedledum and Tweedledee, both as a play on words on their real names, and because they resemble Sir John Tenniel's depictions of those characters in Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass.

The Tweeds always conduct their criminal activities in partnership with one another. Fat and lazy, they prefer to mastermind criminal schemes and let their henchmen carry out any necessary physical activity. The Tweeds will often use their extraordinary likeness to each other to dupe their opponents into thinking there is only one of them.

Tweedledee and Tweedledum first encountered Batman and Robin ( Dick Grayson) when the two cousins were conducting a series of robberies in Gotham City. Batman and Robin captured the Tweeds and have defeated them on subsequent occasions.

The duo tried a plan to take over Gotham's underworld by sparking a demonic war between multiple forces. They escaped the wrath of the survivors by getting themselves accidentally arrested.
