List Rules Vote up your favorite foes of the caped crusader!

Batman has, arguably, the greatest rogues gallery in all of comics, so let's rank every Batman villain best to worst! Bad guys like The Joker, Two-Face, and Hush have been reeking havoc on Batman since the 1940s. Some of his greatest allies have even crossed the line here and there, back and forth, and become worthy foes, like The Red Hood and Catwoman. If you want to rerank this list, then you'll want to consult this complete list of all Batman villains.

Which is the greatest Batman villain? Is the Clown Prince of Crime your favorite Bat baddie, or is it the vivacious DC villainess Poinson Ivy?

Make sure to vote up all your favorite Batman villains from this Batman villains list, and vote down the ones you don't think are worthy to be a part of this impressive roster.
