He's quoting Futurama... funny as hell
As far as who will be remembered as the greatest villain, what matters is impact on the readers. I'd say Lex has had the bigger impact within the DC universe, but Joker's achieved more memorable moments of villainy from a comic reader's perspective. Killing a Robin and maiming a Bat-girl, for starters.
They should of had Joker rape Bat-Girl. Just for more reason to hate him.
I think they implied that in The Killing Joke.
Luthor by a country mile. He's f**king badass.
I would have to say Luthor.He is the most iconic villian of DC,and is the most well known villian also.Joker is a Batman villian,but one could also say Luthor is a Superman villian.But more people know of Luthor.
I like both villains equally. Lex is cool and calculated while the Joker is wild.
Their both crazy and clever at the same time.
But it all comes down to the visual. Who are you going to remember? The psychotic clown or the psychotic bald man?
Many people have a fear of clowns. A fear of bald heads? Not so many.
Luthor should definitly get a respectable second place though, followed by Darkseid.
I would also like to motion for Brainiac, Zoom, and Deathstroke to be included on the list.
Oh what the hell, put Solomon Grundy on there for good measure.
Thats what I think but then again I think Lex would get board of Batman and thats why he rarely gives a second thought to him unlike Superman who is more on Lex level and has more to lose then Batman. Remember Lex can kill Superman he has shown that the thing with Lex is he wants to make Superman fall from grace before killing him.
Also really Darkseid could take the title if he ever just stopped talking and unleashed his full power he would rule the world before lunch is out.
Darkseid can keep on talking, he just needs the right words.
Namely the Anti-Life Equation.
Check out Darkseid in the Seven Soldiers: Mr.Miracle series.
No I mean I don't mind him talking when he is beating the crap out of people but just sitting there or standing there doing nothing but talk when he could wipe them out in a matter of sec.
Well, some men fear that they'll end up with a bald head.
Hmm....I disagree with this. I think the average person on the street would be more likely to know who The Joker is than Lex Luthor.
You are correct. I should have added all of them and some more Flash villians...and honestly I feel like a total doofus for leaving Brainiac off. Oh well, at least I put an "other" section.
Joker would be remember just because he's a crazy clown that everyone loves to hate.Lex should be in close second because his just plain smart and that's all he needs to fight Superman
I say Doomsday because of his reputation, even among those that do not follow comics closely, of killing Superman.
I want to say Ra's.
Lex Luthor for me.
Although Joker is pretty much my favorite overall DC Rogue, i just think that in the realm of villainy, Luthor is the greatest.
Joker will be remembered as a mass murderer, fine and well.
But Lex Luthor?
He often goes up against the (argueably) most powerful and renowned DC hero...
He often LEADS the other villains...
He has often completely DESTROYED the lives of people from his past (and present), over little more than a bruised ego...
He became President of the U.S....
I was able to say the exact same thing. Damn, beat me to it !!
Then go for it....he needs a vote.
God, this is tough. So many good choices... I wish the poll had been set up to allow you to vote more than once.
I'd have to say that my top choices are as follows:
Luthor (The modern version)
Ra's Al Ghul
And.. Doomsday .. but only the original ... not the version that speaks.
Having said all that let me make a point that I don't put any one of them higher than any other. They're all great. But, since I can only vote for one... it will be ... hmmmm... I guess Darksied because I put him first on my list not for any other reason.
tie, joker and lex luthor
