Re: Favourite Ra's al Ghul in the media
I would say that Nolan/Bale's and Dini/Timm/Conroy's visions of Batman are so different that both perfectly nail what they are going for....
With that said I do prefer the Conroy/TAS Batman. Admittedly though, I prefer the less predictably depressing epilogue to Bruce Wayne's life in TDKR than the final in continuity episode of JLU (set as an epilogue to Batman Beyond, which makes that fun series suddenly very dreary).
For characters, I think the Nolanverse did as well or better:
Joker (equal and ver different)
But I prefer TAS' take on
Ra's Al Ghul
Talia Al Ghul
For whatever it is worth.
