And yes, I'm aware of the Hush plot, but I wasn't impressed. Hush was far more formidable, as he was at least there physically! All they did was show one page at the end that it was all planned by the Riddler.

Oh, and he sounds like a whiny kid.
There have been a few issues where he has come across as more menacing. For instance, in Dark Knight: Dark City he actually kills people without hesitation.
