List Rules Must be characters who have appeared in the Batman comics.

The DC Universe has some great characters in it, but perhaps Gotham City has some of the best. Being non-superpowered, Batman's allies and villains tend to have to rely on wits, muscles, and bad fashion sense. It makes them some of the most fun, the most creative, and sometimes the coolest cast of supporting characters in comics. Rank your favorite Batman characters, Batman sidekicks, and Batman villains now!
