Favorite Bat-villains?

Post by MajorHoy on Sun Aug 10, 2014 8:20 pm

Okay, I've listed ten of Batman's villains on this poll, but if the system allowed more choices, there are a few others I could have gone with as well (such as Mr. Freeze).
"Catwoman" is listed even though sometimes she is an adversary and other times she isn't (but she may be going back to "is" these days). Clayface is also on there, though there have been a few in the past who have gone by that moniker. (Though I believe the most recent is Basil Karlo, the original person called Clayface, but with the powers of Matt Hagen, the second Clayface.)

  

  

(By the way, why is there a Joker smiley / emoticon, but no Batman / Bat-symbol one?)

I am going for two because they are the only Bat villains who I've always really liked (at least from those polled). The Riddler (a far more interesting character than the Joker, to me) and Clayface: specifically, Clayface III, Preston Payne, a character who really made an impression on me as a kid. My other two favourite Bat villains aren't on the list-Nocturna and the Thief of Night, great characters who've been shamefully neglected for decades.

Poison Ivy. I like the way she talks to plants.

I grew to hate Nocturna and the Mommy-obsession that Moench developed with her and Jason Todd.

I've never liked Bane or the Riddler, but I like the others on the list when the're properly written. My favourites are Ra's al Ghul by Denny O'Neil, the Joker by Steve Englehart and Clayface by Alan Moore. I agree with Tony about Nocturna and the Thief of Night. I think Mark Andreyko has been using Nocturna in Batwoman recently, but I've not read it, so I don't know how faithful they are to Doug Moench's version. My favourite Bat-villains not already mentioned are two Alan Grant and Norm Breyfogle creations: Cornelius Stirk (much scarier than Scarecrow) and Kadaver.

Mortimer Kadaver! I haven't thought about him in years! Or Stirk, for that matter. That was quite a good period for Batman, though. They created the Ventriloquist, too, another one I quite liked.

Well, if you can find a way to add more options in the poll, maybe I can expand it more . . .

Ten is, I think, the maximum allowed by the forum. And changing it would clear the existing votes. Anyway, there have been so many recurring Bat villains we'd probably need 100 options.

He was never really going to be anything other than a villain though, was he? Not with a name like that. I mean, you wouldn't want him as your doctor.

He'd've made a good undertaker.

Why not as a beautician? Or as an exterminator?

An exterminator, perhaps. Kadaver's Nail Salon' doesn't have the right ring to it.

Anyone ever see Scrubs? One of the Doctors was so bad, and had killed so many people, that he eventually found himself to be a talented medical examiner. That could work here.

I suppose that's one way of turning your problems into solutions. If a little extreme.

What would be so bad about "Mortimer Kadaver - Massage Therapist"?
