Eddie the crook


Eddie was a minor antagonist in the 1989 movie, Batman. He was an ordinary mugger in Gotham City.


Eddie and his partner, Nick, mugged a tourist family who was visiting Gotham. He was at least partially remorseful for their crime, especially that Nick had turned his gun on Jimmy.

Eddie heard many stories of the "The Bat" which frightened him. He told Nick they should get off the roofs they were resting on since he heard one story where Batman killed a crook named Johnny Gobs.Batman managed to confront the cowardly crooks on the rooftops. Batman kicked Eddie through a loose door and was later apprehended. He was carried to an ambulance on a stretcher, writhing in pain.


  • "Hey mister, give me a dollar. How about it? Just one dollar! Are you deaf, don't speak English?"
  • "No, man. That ain't what I heard it all. I heard that the Bat got him."
  • "Five stories. Straight down there wasn't no blood in the body."
  • "Yeah, well, you shouldn't have turned your gun on that kid, man."
