During the 1980s director Tim Burton produced the movie “Batman”. The main character, Bruce Wayne played by Michael Keaton, is a billionaire vigilante who defends the city of Gotham by night. The Joker, Batman’s arch rival, was played by Jack Nicholson. Jack portrayed a physically scarred psychopath bent on destroying the Batman and Gotham City.

He is sadistic, schitsophrenic, who is bipolar, and an emotionally and physically scarred homicidal maniac. Straight down to his preposterous outfit, he never fails to be a creep. He claims to never have a plan, but through it all he has planned so far ahead he knows what will happen and banks on what won’t happen. The Joker is well deserving of being on this list, for the exact definition of villain is: a wicked evil person or scoundrel. Well to me The Joker fits right in.
