In honor of batman coming out on video, I felt it would be nice to pay a tribute to all my favorite animated villians.
I don't actually read comics. All of my information comes from cartoons, movies and the web. I've included who or what they are, why they are on the list and who the main protaginst is.
The two movie incarnations of the joker. Both are obviously gold.
