Your Favorite 5 Bat Villains!

I wanna hear yours but these are mine
1.  Mr. Freeze  (Not the one with Schwartzenegger in "Batman & Robin"--The one from the Comics and the Animated Series) because he isn't crazy like most.
2.  Catwoman--a highly skilled--"Cat" Burglar
3.  Clock King--just  a normal guy who is obsessively punctual
4.  Clayface ---he is so vain--you can see his character as a caricature of our modern day society.
5. Harley Quinn---just fun and crazy

Alright so I left out plenty----Poison Ivy, Joker, Bane, Ra's Al Ghul, Talia Al Ghul, Penguin, Mad Hatter, Ventriloquist, Black Mask, Scarecrow, Killer Croc, Hugo Strange, The Riddler, Calendar Man, Man-Bat and Two Face (I left out a bunch)----what are yours?

Hush, Ra's, Joker, Ivy, Bane. If Catwoman was a villian still, she'd be number one.

5 The Riddler (Mostly because of Frank Gorshin)

4 The Ventriloquist + Scarface (Always fun to read about)
3 Harley Quinn (Also a really fun character)
2 The Penguin (The Animated Series & The 60's show made me love this guy)
1 ...I dunno LOL

After Joker the list follows no particular pattern:

Joker
Bane
Scarecrow

Clay-Face
and Hugo Strange.

The weird thing is that I have almost never read a comic about these guys (except Joker), but after finding out their history, interests, and potentials...

Batman is a dark comic...and the dark Villains who shroud the world with darkness create a great atmosphere and environment "Playground" for batman to work with. I love it.   Arkham Asylum got me to read batman because it was so awesome and dark.

Thanks for all the replies!    I am excited about all the upcoming Bat Media

The Next Christopher Nolan installment of Batman on the Big Screen----I am curious to see what they'll do with Bane, the young Ra's, and Catwoman---Although i will admit I saw Anne Hathaway as more of a Harley Quinn----she is very pale and that smile---IS Harley Quinn's Smile!!   But I am excited to see what she'll bring!

And the Video Game -----the trailer I thought was fantastic------and did you know Dr. Hugo Strange Precedes the JOKER!!
   (I am sure you know the Joker was also supposed to die in his second appearance in the comics) but an editor made a last minute change)

Thanks again!

Deadshot and Catwoman can replace Ivy and Clayface if one were to consider them villians.

Penguin
Riddler
Scarface

"Terrific Twist on the List" 

Or "TTOTL" 
haha----I totally agree about the Joker--which is why I didn't include him in mine---and I agree 100% about Mr. Freeze 
 
The animated list you have is TERRIFIC!  Although I might include Man-Bat or the Clock King    
 
I agree with you on Dini about Harley Quinn---although I thought Jeph Loeb did her justice in "Hush"  but I still agree with you (if that makes sense)
 
And I am assuming you already know that Robin was based off of Robin Hood (created by Jerry Robinson--who is still around up in NY)  he sells prints on his site!   (He'll also sign stuff for you)

There's Dark Knight Dark City but that was about Barbatos and other demonic stuff.Riddler was cool there but let's leave stuff like that to Dr Hurt .He was supposedly the mastermind of Hush(meh) but only appeared for maybe 3 pages of a year long story.There is a decent arc in Legends of the Dark Knight and that's about it for the "mighty" Riddler's villiany.
Posted by FadeToBlackBolt
  1. Joker
  2. Ra's Al Ghul
  3. Ivy

Talia and Catwoman would be numbers 2 and 3 if you consider them villains.
