1 Batman Batman Batman aka Bruce Wayne is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

I'm Back to the Batcave... And I'm Batman...
I'm Tim Burton's character... I mean I'm Batman...
I am Vengeance... I am the Night... I am CONSTIPATED... And I am Batman
Selina, we're the same... Except that I'm Batman...
If I say this quietly, maybe Twoface will hear! (wispers)I'm Batman
Hi, Freeze! I'm George Clooney... I'm NOT Batman...
I'm Bat---*cough* I have laryngitis... *cough* I'm Batman!
You left me hanging by the Leg off a building... Because You're Batman...
Come at me, Bane... I'm Batman... Don't kill me, please...
I end all my sentences that way... CAUSE I'M BATMAN!

Batman is the best character in the batman comics. they are called batman comics for a reason. The joker appears in a lot of the comics, but not all of them. Batman does though, and I feel more emotionally attached to batman. Joker being number one on this list is understandable though. He's cool because he is like an evil batman, which challenges Batman in ways no other villain can.

This man has incredible morals which is why he always wins against his enemies.

Why is BATMAN the BEST...because nobody fights like him, defeats superhero who is a literal godlike being, never kills yet brings justice...come on what other reason do you want... o wait I forgot it he is the BEST because HE IS BATMAN or more like "I AM BATMAN"!

2 Joker Joker The Joker is a fictional super villain created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940) published by DC Comics . Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, ...read more.

The immovable object to the unstoppable force
The joker is absolutely legendary and the way that he does everything without a motive and has no rules at all shows why he is the greatest comic book character of all time. No matter where you look, a representation of the joker will always show you how amazing the character truly is.

After a lot of thinking I concluded that he deserves the # 1 position

Right from his jokes, his persona, his actions, his tricks to keep batman on run makes him legendary

Be it comics world version of Joker, be it Rocksteady version of Joker or be it Nolan version of Joker. None will disappoint you.

Sadly Mark Hamill will never Voice-Act for Joker again... But Hey! Why So Serious? - aamodvairagkar

The joker is awesome. I think he is more interesting than batman, with a more interesting persona and a past. His laugh is creepy, and he always has tricks up his sleeves. I think the Troy Baker (Arkham Origins) and the Heath Ledger (The Dark Knight) are the best portrayals. Don't get mad about me liking mark hamill less than other portrayals, but hey, why so serious?

He is invincible

3 Harley Quinn Harley Quinn Harley Quinn is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as a sidekick of the Joker.

Harley is a hot female joker

Is there anything to explain? She is just so BEAST!

Best character ever! Cutesy but deadly!

She is so pretty

4 Catwoman Catwoman Catwoman is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with the superhero Batman.

She is an incredibly interesting character: although she's a thief, she is not a villainous character, like the Joker or Poison Ivy. Rather, she is somewhat of a "Robin Hood" type of character. Hopefully, she & Batman will get together one day.

The most bad ass comic book character ever! She isn't an antagonist, but she isn't a heroine either. Not to mention that she is also Batman's love interest.But mind the comic book. She is ever better in Gotham. Gotham shows the young Selina, and might I add, she is my favorite character. Selina / Catwoman gets an A+, 10/10 for being amazing.

Easily my favourite female comic book character. What's so nice is that writers never go out of their way to show her independence and that works perfectly unlike most of today's "strong female characters" which are always so in your face. Catwoman is just puurrfect

She is so purrrfect
Way better Than harley quinn

5 Robin Robin Robin is the name of several fictional superheroes appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was originally created by Bob Kane, Bill Finger, and Jerry Robinson, to serve as a junior counterpart to the superhero Batman.

Holy top 10 list Batman! He was hilarious in the 60's, awesome in the comics, and had awesome costume nipples in Batman Forever. What's not to love about The Boy Wonder?

I like robin, cause of batman training him to become a master fighter, But, the only thing I don't like about him is the fact that he gets killed sometimes.

Dick Grayson is SO funny and it's amazing how he is still so happy even after his past! I have always (and always will) loved Dick Grayson from The Batman, to Teen Titans, to Young Justice, to when he becomes Night Wing in Young Justice and heck even in Teen Titans Go! He is AWESOME!

The most iconic sidekick of comics.

6 Riddler Riddler The Riddler is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

there is a boat full of people but there is not one single person on board. how is that possible? - bradz

What's an 11 letter word that's always spelled incorrectly?

My brother think he's magnificent with all of his question marks and riddles

Woa! Is that David Tennant as the Riddler? - catlinelizabethlaufeyson

7 Nightwing Nightwing Dick Grayson is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with Batman.

Takes down everyone in 2 seconds he is amazing at fighting and I hated in arkham city he didn't have a campaign or story mode. Also nightwing needs his own video game hack maybe robin can get his own game to

I know batman is number one but nightwing was once batman for a little while in the comics so he should be at least number 2

Nightwing is confirmed as the best acrobat in the DC universe. He's smart, skilled, a strong leader, and has a funny, optimistic personality to boot.

Nightwing has been confirmed to be a better fighter than Batman himself. He should be higher on this list.

8 Alfred

I really don't see why Alfred isn't in the top ten! This guy is like the greatest butler ever

Currently, it is nearly impossible to imagine Batman without Alfred.

The best butler ever makes sense why he is in the top ten should be top 5

He’s so loyal - Goku02

9 Bane Bane Bane is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

I understand that Bane is Batman's ultimate foe when it comes to strength and can outsmart him as far as a fight goes, but I really wouldn't put him at #6 simply because as far as many other villains story's go, Bane is somewhat the least interesting, and even in Batman's world he sought of comes off like a wrestling gimmick, hell I love Rises (And Tom Hardy's performance) but I really don't think Bane was needed at all in the film, it would be much interesting to have Riddler, Penguin or Black Mask, and HARLEY QUINN as the Threating villains. - Drewstar

Bane is so strong

I love batman and the joker 100%. But come on he is just crazy.

BANE BROKE THE BAT! THE BAT! AND THE BAT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE! BANE ALL THE WAY!

The most human of all Batman's villains and in a weird way, the one we want the most to get better and redeem himself. Two Face should be much higher than 17. - Drewstar

17 Oracle
18 Talia al Ghul Talia al Ghul Talia al Ghul is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with Batman.

Occasional lover of Batman. She is torn between her father and Batman and between good and evil. Deep down, she has a good heart and has shown this by helping Batman.

I not just voting Talia as the best character ever. I voted her because she's smokin hot! I might vote the Joker on my friend's computer soon!

25 Deathstroke Deathstroke Deathstroke is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. He is a mercenary and assassin who first appeared in The New Teen Titans #2.

He deserves a higher spot although he isn't just a Batman villain. So badass and powerful he took down the entire Justice League, never lost to Batman (mostly), and, of course, inspired DEADPOOL! Can't get better than Deathstroke (unless it's the Joker)

He is the best killer and tourtuare of all
