    Default Which Batman villain should receive more attention?

    Since a good number of people (myself included) have Joker fatigue and since Batman have arguably the best rogues gallery, which Batman villain you would like to see receive more attention?

    Woah woah woah! Mystery? In BATMAN!? Next you'll be implying Batman is supposed to be a human detective or something!

    Catwoman
    Harley Quinn
    Punchline
    Poison Ivy
    Talia al Ghul

    Of course I might just be feeling a little hot blooded right now...

    They are the most overexposed characters and not considered to be villains anymore. Punchline is to fill up the gap that Harley Quinn left behind, Talia is to make up for Catwoman being redeemable.

    My vote is for Scarecrow.

    I think you missed the point where I was just listing all the attractive female rogues I could think of...

    Although I am really hopeful and interested in Punchline getting built up to be a long lasting big time foe.

    Batman and family have, at least, a dozen more attractive female rouges...waiting on a shelf in comic-book limbo.

    Batman and family have over 500 villains...many of who may not been seen any time soon.

    I did say that I could think of - I don't know all of them.

    I have remembered two more I'd like to see though
    Magpie
    White Rabbit

    Well, when was the last time in main continuity that Bruce actually acted like a detective?

    Anyway, no Bane. Had enough of him for a good while as a main villain. Do the Bats know Clayface is still alive? Either way, kind of like him being that anti-hero/reformed villain (he and Cass in Detective Comics had a good student/teacher thing going). Jane Doe is an interesting choice, for sure. Getting back to the nitty-gritty noir Detective aspect. Ivy being a full on villain would rile up some people, but why not.

    If Punchline can replace Harley, then why can't another villainess sub for Ivy?

    Why does Pam have to go backwards because writers aren't more creative?

    When was the last time we had a good Hugo Strange story (Eternal wasn't good. Maybe Arkham City.)? I feel like all the other villains have a well known relatively recent story attached to them:

    Ra's- Death and the Maidens
    Two-Face- Big Burn
    Penguin- Joker's Asylum Penguin#1, Pain and Prejudice
    Riddler- Earth One, Zero Year
    Bane- No Man's Land
    Poison Ivy- No Man's Land
    Black Mask- during Brubaker's Catwoman run
    Hush- Heart of Hush
    Mad Hatter- Rucka's New Gotham

    Controversial opinion: What could be done with Freeze and Clayface that hasn't been done already and much better?

    What word in the English language does the following: the first two letters signify a male, the first three letters signify a female, the first four letters signify a great, while the entire word signifies a great woman. What is the word?

    Ask The Riddler.

    My mind immediately went to Doctor Strange when I read the title. Then the first thing I did was look up his recent appearances because I couldn't remember and was surprised to realize he was behind the Monster Men event. Completely forgot. Still a strong contender.

    I'd like to see more of villanous Clayface too. He has been getting used for one-shot issues a lot and has felt more like a gimmick in his villain role. If DC wants to keep him redemable, they could combine Bruce mistaking Jane Doe's work for his.
