    Default DC villains that are more interesting in other mediums then they are in.comics.

    Vandal Savage: most of my favor Vandal Savage stories are cartoons.
    Mr. Freeze: He was kind of lame before BTAS remade him.

    I liked Cheshire and Sportsmaster more in Young Justice than in the comics.

    Harley Quinn
    Clayface

    Only time I found both of them interesting was in BTAS

    Nyssa al Ghul. She started out strong and had potential in the comics (in my opinion at least), but got cut down and almost forgotten pretty quickly. I'm glad she's gotten a good run in the CW Verse, and at least a bit part in "Gotham". The CW version has been a lot of fun, and a easy character to support.

    Mr. Freeze, if only because it was the animated take that made people actually care about him as a villain.

    I'm also going to say Tobias Whale. He's a decent enough gang leader villain in the books, but shines in the live-action Black Lightning series by comparison.

    Totally agree with both mathew101281 & Frontier about Mr. Freeze.

    BTAS really made him special:


    And I know Adam West's Batman did it first, but I'd like to add the BTAS version of the Riddler (visually speaking, a well-designed character):

    There aren’t many good Zod stories in the comics. But he’s always a show stealer in live action.
    I liked Riddler Hush more than Eliot in the comics, does that count?

    Reign and the other Worldkillers were more interesting like action than in the comic books.

    You could say through the 60s, the tv version of the Joker was more interesting and popular than the comic version.
    He was popular enough in the 40s, 50s and start of the 60s, but he was hardly seen in comics due to Julius Schwartz disliking the character so much... without the tv shows regular appearances making him popular, he could well have disappeared altogether.
