List Rules Vote up the members of Batman's rogues gallery you're weirdly thirsty for.

DC Comics has perfected the craft of creating intriguing female villains, arguably because their outlaws are often easy on the eyes. It's much more fun to read about Ivy's atrocities and Bane's back-breaking antics when writers are flaunting their characters' good looks. Although a few of Batman's rogues are infamous for their ugly mugs - Swamp Thing certainly could use a good grooming - some Dark Knight evildoers know how to turn on the charm. 

Whether depicted on television, in film, or throughout the comics, the hottest Batman villains are notoriously fun to see doing bad things. If you've ever found yourself crushing on Talia al Ghul or Mr. Freeze, you're certainly not alone; of the hottest DC supervillains Batman's enemies are at the top of the charts.
