When it comes to trying to take down The Dark Knight, there is no doubt that you are going to have to bring your A-game. Batman is not only one of the coolest characters out there (which totally matters) but he is also one of the most powerful, and always seems to have the tools necessary to complete the job. I mean, the guy literally has his own supercar that he gets to drive around. It just wouldn’t be fair if his villains didn’t also have some outrageous powers.
Batman’s villains are great for so many reasons. Some have storylines that will tug at your heart strings, and others are just psychotic. The popularity of the Batman film franchise has helped make not only Batman, but also his villains, into household names for much of the population.
Do you not know who some of Batman’s most powerful villains are? Well, you’re in luck, because by the time you get to the end of this list, you’ll know everything there is to know about Batman’s foes. If it isn’t bad enough that one of these villains can come after you, several of them are also known for working together in a team. Who knows? Maybe, you'll read this list and be convinced that something or someone will finally be able to beat him one day! Though, I doubt it.
If you are more interested in the upcoming film Suicide Squad, which features several villains that are listed below, feel free to check out an all-inclusive list (written by yours truly) about the different bad guys that get their next crack at The Dark Knight on the big screen. Keep in mind that this list is in order, so feel free to share on Facebook if you agree or disagree!
17 Harley Quinn
16 The Penguin
15 Victor Zsasz
13 The Riddler
10 Poison Ivy
8 The Scarecrow
7 Solomon Grundy
When Solomon Grundy first appeared in the comics, it was not Batman he wanted to take down, but The Green Lantern. While he didn’t necessarily knock off Green Lantern, Grundy has done enough to stick around and be a permanent problem for several DC characters.
When it comes to different villains, you may start to relate to some of them or feel bad for them once you understand their backstory more. One character that absolutely tugs at your heart strings is Mr. Freeze. Dr. Victor Fries was a cryogenicist, whose wife was stricken with a fatal disease. In order to save her, he froze her and desperately searched for a cure. Unfortunately, GothCorp decided that it wasn’t worth the money and they pulled the plug, killing his wife. To make matters worse, it led to an accident that made Fries' body cold-blooded, meaning he must always be kept at subzero temperatures or he will die.
5 Killer Croc
4 Ra’s Al Ghul
3 The Joker
You aren’t going to be able to complete this list without including Bane, so you might as well put him near the top. Bane’s storyline is that he has abnormal strength due to experiments regarding a drug known as Venom. While he has been around since 1993, he gained popularity after a fantastic portrayal by Tom Hardy as the character in The Dark Knight Rises. Want a quote that really dictates the power of Bane?
“I am Bane and I could kill you... but death would only end your agony and silence your shame. Instead, I will simply... BREAK YOU!"
I don’t know if you’re excited for Batman V. Superman, but it’s kind of a big deal! Coming out in a few months, it will not only finally feature Batman and Superman on the same screen, but, based on the title, it is clear that they are not necessarily going to get along the whole time. Superman and Batman have had shared interests, most notably as members of the Justice League, but they’ve also had their fair share of conflict throughout the years.
Given that Superman may be the most powerful superhero of all, there is no doubt that he is also Batman’s most powerful foe. Superman has absolutely no shortage of powers that would help make him a favorite against any mere mortal, at least any mere mortal that isn’t named Bruce Wayne!
