The comic book version of King Tut is shown to be Victor Goodman, a criminal Egyptologist who targets and murders wealthy citizens, and leaves Egyptian-themed riddles, similar to the Riddle of the Sphinx. Batman teams up with the Riddler, who does not appreciate his modus operandi being stolen, and agrees to help to stop Goodman. His alter-ego is an homage to actor Victor Buono.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
None Known, but profound expert on all subjects related to Egyptology.

Batman: The Brave and the BoldEdit
King Tut appears in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode "Day of the Dark Knight!". He is shown as a convict trying to escape Iron Heights, but was foiled by Batman and Green Arrow. It should be noted that the other convicts that Tut escapes with are either common criminals, the show's supervillains, or other villains from the Adam West series including Egghead, The Bookworm, The Archer, Louie The Lilac , and Shame. Tut makes another jailbreak cameo, this time in Blackgate Penitentiary, in "Night of the Huntress!" He is once again foiled, this time by the Huntress. When last seen, King Tut was glimpsed as an inmate of Arkham Asylum in "Mayhem of the Music Meister!", sharing a padded cell with Psycho-Pirate and the Top. The straitjacketed Tut is one of the many asylum inmates caught under the hypnotic spell of the Music Meister. In "Battle of the Superheroes!", Batman and Robin wear special mummified suits in order to fight Pharaoh when he uses a special staff to turn people into zombies that obey his every command (The wrappings are coated in buttermilk, another reference to the live-action Batman series).
King Tut makes a cameo in the film alongside several other Batman villains. This version resembles Victor Buono's version of the character.
