From the moment he started singing (in a preview clip), Gargoyle had the audience in the palm of his hands, er, wings. The smooth stylings of the stony singer immediately captured attention on DC Superheroes Night on The Masked Singer, and it had everyone wondering who was under the mask.
Gargoyle made his debut along with two other new contestants, Squirrel and Wolf. Though he might look like a bat, Gargoyle came out and showed the audience that he's a singer and a competitor.
After a rousing performance, Gargoyle lost in the Battle Royale to Squirrel, but he lived to sing another day after the panelists utilized the Ding Dong Keep It On save feature. Gargoyle will live to sing another day when all of the contestants saved will complete against each other.
So who is under the mask? Let's look at the clues to see who is Gargoyle on The Masked Singer.

Here are Gargoyle's clues from DC Superheroes Night:
Celebrity Clue (delivered by Helen Mirren and Zachary Levi): "Record maker." Gargoyle said, "I’m keen on making waves in the field. But being a part of history is the best bonus I could ask for."
Voiceover clue: "From the time I was 6, I pretty much knew I wanted to be a superhero. But while my peers all seemed to fly, I was stuck on the sidelines. Until my dad gave me a piece of advice. Never let anyone tell you, you can’t do something. He made me believe I could do anything. And it became my superpower. So, when the call finally came for a hero, I put my cape on, and shocked millions with how hard I slay. I went from the guy they passed on, to the guy they passed to. And now when the lights are blinded and the game is on the line, I always answer the call."
