Same here. Although I still think Joker was the best villain of the trilogy. Bane and Ra's are practically tied in second place though, for different reasons of course.

In addition both are evil students of the heroes mentor, and both are at the end revealed to be not fully evil. They are very different characters, but a comparison can be made.
Good points.

I'd add the fact that both villains have these instantly recognisable themes that almost always accompany their appereances in their respective movies and bring with them a sense of dread.
