  • Strengths- Fueled by powers of the underworld, and in bondage to a demon in Hell. Uses his limited powers to help mankind in a skewed sort of way.

1. Wonder Woman

4. Carnage
  • Strengths- Carnage is the equal of both spiderman and Venom. He has super strength and uncontrollable bloodlust, which makes him a formidable enemy.

3. Harley-quinn
  • Strengths: She uses her card-themed weapons to blast her way into anywhere she wants. As the accomplice and lover of The Joker, she enjoys protections from him as well.

2. Poison Ivy
  • Strengths- Poison Ivy can use plants and toxins to help get her way. Her strengths also include gorgeousness to seduce people into doing things she wants them to do.

1. The Riddler
  • Strengths- Not many, i'm afraid. He uses riddles to fool his victims and things of that sort.
  • He is important to read about because he is halfway key to Batman. He is a big part of the plot and even though he is not really that strong when compared to the Joker- Batman and the Riddler are interconnected through the series.
