QUIZ: Which Rogues Gallery Batman Villain Are You?

Few super heroes have a selection of villains quite like Batman. There’s something about Gotham City that turns once-promising people into scheming super-villains. And you know what? We’re here for it!

Batman’s Rogues Gallery is home to some of the most iconic comic book super-villains ever created. They’re each horrific and terrifying in their own ways but somehow, despite our better judgements, we can’t turn away. We’re happy to let these DC villains capture our attention each time because they’re so damn good at being evil.

But admit it — you’ve always wondered, which Rogues Gallery super-villain are you? Don’t worry, once it’s decided we won’t call Arkham to take you in. Probably.

Batman’s Rogues Gallery

Over the years, from the pages of DC comics to television and the big screen, we’ve seen Batman’s villains grow in numbers. Some have evolved in time to be antiheroes. Others have devolved into something less than human. But they all hold a special place in Batman fans’ hearts.

Many of these super-villains are also accomplished individuals, aside from their constant evildoing. A number of Batman’s most fearsome foes have attained post-graduate and doctorates in complicated scientific fields. Others, like former District Attorney Harvey Dent, were once well-respected members of Gotham society. If Batman’s Rogues Gallery proves anything, it’s that many of us are just one mishap away from beginning our own villain origin stories.

Think about it. The reason we love these Batman baddies is because (at least occasionally) we can understand their motives. They’ve been wronged, hurt, misunderstood by society — and that type of rejection leaves painful scars. No wonder they act out! Unless, of course, we’re talking about The Joker. That guy’s motives are about as clear as a cloud of laughing gas.
