[Poll] Greatest Batman Villains

Postby Benji » Sep 14th, 2014, 12:40 pm

We've had this a couple times before, but that was a good while ago, before the new DC, before Dark Knight Rises and before Arkham Origins. Just vote for who, in your opinion, are the greatest Batman villains, you can vote up to 7.

Only 7,huh?That was tough...Here are mine:

Joker
Riddler.Arguably the smartest Bat-foe.
Bane
Penguin,as he's an underground crime lord.
Scarecrow,he can totally mess up with Batman's brain.
Ra's Al Ghul
Freeze,because he's so cool(pun intended).
When the mugger or the thief stops to think twice,that is fear.That is what I am.Tonight will not be my end,but it will be theirs!

Good topic, Benji. I wasn't sure what you meant by 'greatest' so I just picked a couple based on what they've accomplished and other's due to how cool they are.

My picks:

1: Bane - The only man to break the Bat.

2: Deathstroke - Batman's superior. [in terms of martial arts, though I suppose it's debatable]

3: Riddler - One of Batman's most intelligent foes.

4: Scarecrow - Super deadly with his fear toxin.

5: Ra's Al Ghul - Has his own army of Ninja at his command.

6: Man-Bat - Batman's anti-thesis.

7: Killer Croc - What's not to like about a half-man, half-crocodile? I think crocodile's are awesome which helped influence this vote.

Cheerio.

No particular order: Joker, Riddler, Bane, Ivy, Scarecrow, Ra's Al Ghul, Freeze.

Harley and Catwoman were on my list. But I decided that I liked them more as characters and not as Batman's villains.

In no particular order: Joker, Riddler, Bane, Two Face, Scarecrow, Ras al Ghul and Hush (post-Heart of Hush). There were many more I wish I could've voted for but ultimately it came down to who were the best antagonists.

Ra´s al Ghul is the greatest/dangerous Batman villain if you ask me :)

He has a private army able to hold his own against a small army of Parademons, is even more ruthless than the Joker, absolutely humilated Bane and Red Robin in one on one combat, almost defeated the Justice League by using Batman against them and last but not least is immortal.

Does Bane love that Black Mask has no votes? :bane:

Mr. Freeze. Because at times he helps Batman, but loses his temper when Nora is involved. He's probably the most tragic out of them all, too. He's just pure awesome. :freeze:

When it said "greatest", I decided that it meant his most powerful and interesting foes who have greatly challenged and hurt the Dark Knight over time. So, here are my seven;

1. The Joker - Wasn't a difficult pick, he's killed a Robin, crippled a Batgirl and is Batman's polar opposite
2. Two Face - Represents what a corrupted Batman would be like, also one of his biggest failures
3. Bane - He's broken the Bat once, took over Gotham and is smart enough to mutually respect the Bat
4. Ra's al Ghul - Head of an international terrorist organisation, represents unnatural power the Bat craves
5. Hugo Strange - Easily gets under the Bat's skin and is a tricky foe, very underrated imo
6. Hush - Masterminded a big plot alongside Nigma to kill the Bat, ran Joker out of Gotham and infiltrated the Bat-cave.

Now no. 7 was a tricky one for me; it was initially between Harley Quinn, Scarecrow and Mr Freeze. As much as I love Scarecrow, I don't think he's that "great" of a villain and doesn't add much to the Bat mythos aside from revisiting all of his big failures and fears. Then I decided on who is formidable enough to beat the Bat, represent his corruption and also is just a great overall DC villain;

7. Deathstroke

Those are my picks. Glad to see Scarecrow's getting a lot of votes, surprised about some of the numbers.

This was very tough, as most villains have something special to me. I voted for Joker, Harley, Two-Face, Penguin, Scarecrow, Bane and Mr. Freeze. I always find it interesting how popular Red Hood is, because as far as Robin was concerned, Jason Todd was really hated.
