Cosmo Krank is an original character from the series "The Batman". He once worked at Wayne Enterprises until he was fired for not taking the precaution to make sure his toys were safe. The Toymaker is an enemy of the Batman from The Batman.
At first, Cosmo Krank was the C.E.O. of a toy company named "Krank Co." that created incredibly futuristic toys. However, Bruce Wayne noticed that Krank Co's toys were very dangerous. He led a campaign that eventually closed down Krank Co. for good. Enraged, Cosmo Krank became a villain named "The Toymaker," who used his toys in his attempt to get revenge on Bruce Wayne.
His first attempt was to launch a robot attack on the meeting held by Wayne explaining to Krank's former investors why his company was shut down. His second attempt was using his razor-clawed Zoom Pet toy to make a delivery to Wayne Manor, and kill Wayne. Both attempts failed.
His third attempt was to have a boy play with his toy robot which would distract the police, while he made preparations to kidnap Wayne with his giant drill-like robot and take him to his mock paradise of Kranky Town, an underground world of toys he'd built as a hideout. His ultimate plan was to have his robot dip Wayne in a neon river of molten plastic to turn him into his personal 'non-action figure'. However, he found that Wayne had somehow escaped and was 'safely on his way home' while the Batman confronted him in his place, along with Detective Cash, who had been acting as Wayne's bodyguard. He summoned a massive army of remote-controlled Zoom Pets against the duo, while flying overhead in his Cosmo Flyer hoverdisc. After nearly dumping Cash into the plastic river, he lost his remote control to Batman, which the Dark Knight used to give Krank a taste of his own medicine. Backed into a corner by his own Zoom Pets and pleading to them for mercy as if they were actually alive, Batman used them to beat up Krank until the police arrived and arrested him for his assasination attempts.
He was later captured by Rumor, but he didn't make a physical appearance.
