I honestly feel like Hardy's Bane was on par with the Joker for what he was, which in several ways was the exact opposite of a villain (for me the only thing missing from the character was a proper exit, though I get the arguments for that). It's also without a doubt the best version of Bane that's been done in any medium and as great as Ledger's Joker was I don't think you could make the same assertion with him.

Life was such a wheel that no
man could stand upon it for long.
And it always, at the end, came
round to the same place again.
