- The Joker: The Joker may not be one of Batgirl’s frequent villains but no other monster hurt her the way The Joker did. Not only did he shoot her in cold blood, but he stripped her down bare-naked to take pictures to send to her father. If Barbara holds any hatred for anyone, it is for the clown prince of crime. Although, I don’t think they will include The Joker in the movie to be made, I couldn’t let this list go by without giving him a dishonorable shout out.
Abilities: “Indomitable Will: The Joker’s insanity, or his frame of mind, leaves him immune to the Spectre’s judgement, though warranted, as Batman explained once that the Joker doesn’t actually know what is right and wrong, a crucial understanding the Spectre needs to judge. In a way, one has to know one’s deeds are evil or wrong for the Spectre to judge, and the Joker doesn’t. Also, both Jim Corrigan and Hal Jordan Spectres have had major problems with navigating the Joker’s mind, Corrigan even managed to get lost in it and Jordan literally was blasted out of his boots to the moon when he tried.
Genius Level Intellect: The Joker is portrayed as highly intelligent and skilled in the fields of chemistry and engineering, as well an expert with explosives. From his first appearance onward, he has been consistently portrayed as capable of hijacking broadcasts – usually news programs – of both the television and radio varieties.
-Gadgetry: The Joker commits crimes with countless “comedic” weapons (such as razor-sharp playing cards, acid-spewing flowers, cyanide pies, and lethally electric joy buzzers) and his signature Joker venom.
Hand-to-Hand Combat (Basic): The Joker has moderate skill in hand to hand combat. Over the years it has been shown that although Batman is stronger, the Joker is faster and more agile, and his fighting style is chaotic and difficult to predict. The Joker has been known to be able to hold his own in hand-to-hand combat against Batman, however every time he is subdued by Batman, it is through physical force. However, the Joker has proven to be very skilled in the area of martial arts as well, this being proven when beating the Batman once in a fight without “cheating”. However, this skill in fighting can also be questioned, due to different artists having different reincarnations of the Joker. In some cases, he is so weak, that Batman can take him down with a single punch, whilst in other cases; he has proven to be more than a match for the Dark Knight.
