The Joker was the best out of the ones listed with Lex Luthor coming in a close second.

I think an underrated villain in the DCAU was Gorilla Grodd, really loved the dynamic between him and the Flash.

I was thinking about adding him, but I got lazy

@youknowwhattodo: Heheh Dan Didio.

Joker simply because he is my favorite out of them all and really he does represent evil. He truly can be terrifying when written that way. Lex would come next followed by Darkseid and Brainiac and Vandal. I love how you remembered Vandal Savage. I feel like he is easily forgotten.

I had to include him! lol he defeated the entire Justice League(after Superman and Batman were killed) and destroyed the entire world, only to redeem himself and help Superman Samurai Jack-style in the end.

Toss up between Lex and Darkseid.

While Lex probably was the best written character in the entire DCAU, due to his character development...but by the classic definition of a villain, Darkseid would be the top choice. He was absolutely menacing in STAS.

The Joker. His appearances in Mask of the Phantasm and Return of the Joker are among my favorite portrayals of the character.

Luthor, with Darkseid coming in at a close second. Joker's overrated.

Joker and Lex. Vandal was better in Young Justice.

My personal favorites are Grodd, Mad Hatter, and Metallo....

But of these, probably Joker and Lex Luthor

Darkseid for me who was really lowballed in the show. Watching it now, it's really baffling how they handled his level of power

I like Professor Pyg from Beware the Batman. He and Mister Toad are hilarious.

Where is Deathstroke?

I'd go with Darkseid... He is a pain in the ass for the JLA.

It's a shame Teen Titans wasn't DCAU.

And the Bat embargo.

Otherwise, we could have gotten Deathstroke in the rogues gallery. And other Batman villains in JL and JLU.
