The Joker is definitely the most like the devil in terms of villains. He's presented as something almost more than human, like a force of nature. I've always found Bane's "speak of the devil" line as indicative of his huge ego, that he sees himself as an antichrist/destroyer type of figure there to rain fire on the city.
