Generation of riddles comes to an end

According to this ChgoTrib article, the TRUE RIDDLER Frank Gorshin is dead.

Gorshin created the finest, most engaging madman of all Batman's foes, plus he played a part in one of my favorite bad sci-fi films, "Invasion of the Saucer-Men", as well as having an impressive resume of respected film roles, from "Warlock" to "Twelve Monkeys" and beyond.

Plus, as a real trouper, he paid his dues in two soaps -- "The Edge of Night" and "General Hospital" -- and had been performing a one-man play based upon the life and performances of comic George Burns.

Gorshin was 72.
