1. The Joker
2. Ra's Al Ghul
3. Two-Face
4. Catwoman
5. Bane
6. Harley Quinn
7. Mister Freeze
8. Poison Ivy
9. The Riddler
10. Scarecrow
11. Hush
12. Zsassz

So, he is strangely at the same level. Go figure that Nolan would end up using of all my top 5. I wish we could have seen Harley as well.
I'd put him above Ra's Al Ghul in terms of popularity now. Ra's Al Ghul is not a very distinctive villain. If it weren't for Batman Begins, nobody would know about him except for the hardcore fans.
