It's Joker and it's not particularly close imo. I've literally never met someone who didn't know who the Joker is.

Joker and Luthor are the most iconic. Harley is more popular than magneto so i would say almost every Bat villain is famous. Sorry Marvel.

1. The Joker

2. Magneto

3. Lex Luthor

I think these are the only villains that transcend the geek/nerd culture bubble

Theres only three and its not even close. Alot of people like to mention Doctor Doom but i have meet many people who had no clue who he was. And thats probably becuase the Fantastic Four never had a majorly successful breakout animated television show, or stared in a highly successful box office blowout film or even one that was beloved by fans and got a cult following. But for the bottom three i can honestly say i have never meet anybody who didnt know who those guys were. I repeat Never.

Lex Luthor

@buttersdaman000: You mean in terms of non comic readers knowing them? Because I think there's a lot more than just those 3 that just casual cbm watchers would know.

I know ppl 60 or 70 yo who don't know who Magneto is, and I'd wager they don't know Luthor either.

@rukelnikovftw: Thats probably true, and i,m sure there are plenty of people who dont know of the two. But there still imo among the most recognizable villains in all of comics compared to the others. Popular Movies and cartoon shows have helped solidify that.

The joker and it's not even close. You don't need to read Batman comics, or watch mainstream Batman shows to know who he is. He's culturally known throughout the world. You can ask a 2 year old to a 80 year. They'll know who he is. There's Batman The Good and Joker The Evil.

People who are saying Lex Luther. Be real. You all can grab more than a handful of random people and they won't know who he is, or it might take them a bit to brainstorm who he is.

Magneto, Penguin, Catwoman, and the Green Goblin are tied second but it's not close.

Surprised nobody mentioned Doc Ock, he's pretty big.
