The Ventriloquist & Scarface (Knock on wood)

The inspiration for this week’s blog comes from my All New Marvel Roundup and Superconductivity podcast cohost Charlie Esser (@charlieesser).  Charlie mentioned that now that Oswald is top dog of crime On Gotham now, he needs a new rival and the writers should introduce the Ventriloquist.  Who is the Ventriloquist?  3 people have used the name.  The first and best known was a timid man named Arnold Wesker who committed crimes by commanding his gang through his dummy Scarface, who was always dressed as a 1920’s gangster.  Wesker and Scarface both first appeared in Detective Comics #583 (February 1988).
