Besides some superficial similarities he wasn't much like any of those characters at all.
Except for in his goals, beliefs, style, substance and about everything other than his dumb dumb pathetic backstory, cause who wants an interesting compelling villain when we get someone who has crappy "themes" coming out his a**, and wants money and power.
