Batman Wiki

A gathering of the most traditional top tier villains by Brian Stelfreeze.

Batman: “So the question is, who wants to eliminate me?
Alfred: “That line is forming around the block, sir.
―Batman and Alfred discussing an attempt on his life.[src]

The Rogues Gallery is the term for the various villains that Batman has faced over the years. These have ranged from costumed villains like the Joker, Poison Ivy and Two-Face, plainclothes crime bosses like Rupert Thorne, Carmine Falcone and Joe Chill to lesser known foes such as Magpie, Killer Moth and Humpty Dumpty. As enemies of the Batman are often sympathetic or otherwise morally complex, he is also known to be enemies with anti-heroic allies such as Catwoman, Azrael or the Red Hood.
