10 Reasons Why The Riddler Is Actually Batman's Greatest Nemesis

Updated 1 Jun 2017 54.8k views10 items

Out of all the superheroes out there, many comic book fans would argue that Batman has the best rogues' gallery. With great villains such as Mr. Freeze, Ra's Al Ghul, and Two-Face among so many others, Batman has to contend with some of the most creative and sinister baddies in comic book history. However, out of all of the villains listed on "Gotham's Most Wanted," there is no better feud in Batman comics than Batman and the Riddler.

That's right: the Riddler is Batman's greatest enemy. More than Two-Face, more than Bane, and more than Ra's. The Riddler is even more of a threat to Batman than the Joker. 

Many may scoff at the idea of the Riddler, AKA Edward Nigma, being Batman's greatest nemesis, but there are plenty of reasons to support this claim. Remember how the Riddler held Gotham hostage in the Zero Year? Or that he knows the immortal secrets of the Lazarus Pit? Or that he knows that Batman is Bruce Wayne? Read on to see why The Riddler is a great villain and the greatest foe of the Dark Knight.
