Batman protects Gotham City, but sometimes, the villains prove a challenge for him. From the patients in Arkham Asylum to the inmates of Blackgate, he has always has to come up with new ways to combat them. I have my favorites and I wanted to share them with you. Here is Part 3 of my Top 50 favorite Batman villains.
Sal Maroni- In the original Batman continuity, he was second only to Carmine “The Roman” Falcone as Gotham’s crime boss. Later, he was the one who threw acid on Harvey Dent, creating the villain known as Two-Face.
Nocturna- Natalia Knight was the victim of a horrible laser accident that drained the pigmentation from her skin, turning her into a vampire.
Calendar Man- Julian Day is a criminal who operates based on calendar holidays. He is very clever and intelligent. He was prominent in Batman: The Long Halloween.
Dr. Dedalus- Otto Netz founded the criminal organization known as Leviathan. Later, it was shown that he is the father of Kathy Kane, the original Batwoman.
Rupert Thorne- He is a criminal mob boss. He originally had political ambitions, but after Batman exposed his criminal activities, he was forced into hiding.
Dr. Phosphorus- Alexander Sartorius is a vicious criminal that can burn flesh. Often, he gives off radiation that become deadly to many.
Blockbuster- Mark and Roland Desmond are mutated crime bosses that ran things in Gotham City. After Mark’s death, Roland moved to Blüdhaven to torment Nightwing.
Ultimate Clayface- Basil Karlo was originally an actor turned murder, but after meeting the other Clayface group, he stole their powers to become even more powerful.
Dr. Death- Karl Hellfern deserves a place on any Batman villain list. Why is that? He was Batman’s very first supervillain and first recurring foe.
Carmine Falcone- He is a criminal mob boss who is nicknamed The Roman. He is cunning and devious and he is extremely deadly. No other crime family has come close.
