Hard not to go with Ledger’s Joker and Terrence Stamps Zod. I’d probably have to put Nicholson’s Joker & Hackman’s Luthor in there too. Honorable mention goes to John Shea’s Lex Luthor from 90’s Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. His performance might seem dated and cheesy now, but back then it was an awesome fresh take on Lex. Mr. Shea really put his all into the part and it showed in every episode from season 1.

Ledger’s Joker, Shannon’s Zod and Black Manta. If we’re adding live action TV shows…Mark Hamill as Trickster from 90’s Flash show.

Hmm. Mark Strong’s Sinestro was the first to come to mind, followed by Terence Stamp’s General Zod.

But since they’ve already been mentioned, I’m going to go with Frank Gorshin’s Riddler. For me, not only was he always a joy to watch on the TV show, he was the villainous highlight of the 1966 Batman film.

Keath Ledger was the best Joker ever, may he rest in peace. Zod was also a perfect cast in my opinion. He was great.

@michael.allen99000 No doubt about it that he was perfectly cast in that role. I was hoping he’d reprise it, but now that he’s Svannah thats highly unlikely.
