What's in a Name?

Last week, we saw the birth of a Gotham City criminal as Bridget Pike set the town aflame. However, it was this week that she received a supervillain name—or two. Gordon called her Firebug while Captain Barnes referred to her as Firefly. Both these characters exist in the comics as fire-friendly Gotham City supervillains.

Joe Rigger first appeared as Firebug in Batman #318 while another version of the character, Harlan Combs, debuted later in Gotham Central #3.

Similarly, two people have taken the moniker of Firefly: Garfield Lyons in Detective Comics #184 and Ted Carson in Batman #126.

A Dark Knight on Jenkins

Bullock tells Gordon that Selina Kyle has been holed in a Single Resident Occupancy off Jenkins. Like many previous street names in the show, this one may be named after a well-known Batman scribe: Paul Jenkins, who most recently wrote Batman: The Dark Knight with artist David Finch.

See you next week!
