Re: The Joker (The Dark Knight) vs. Bane (TDKR)
Joker and Bane are in many ways opposites as far as villains go so it's not appropriate to compare them. I think they were both equally effective for what they were.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
