    Without a doubt, Joker is one of the most iconic villains in all of comics books. Aside from being Batman's toughest villain, there's just something that draws people to the clown prince of crime. We decided it was time to take a look at some of the notable voice actors who got to portray the Joker over the years in animation and video games.

    Who is your favorite Joker? Maybe we should be asking "who is your second favorite," actually.

    @inferiorego: who has your favorite Joker voice?

    Aside, from Hamill, I really loved Emerson in Dark Knight Returns. It's not a traditional Joker that you'd expect, but it fit the story and where the character was at within the story

    Young justice

    Assault on arkham

    John DiMaggio in under the hood was pretty good. Wish he would get more work.

    You know... when Mark Hamill isnt available.

    @inferiorego: Steve Blum does a good Joker as well. But he only did it in the 1st Lego Batman. Apparently there's a whole list of Joker voice actors you can look at in this link. http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/characters/Batman/Joker/

    My favorites so far are:

    Mark Hamill

    Richard Empcar (The Joker from the Injustice game, is a fantastic Joker. I think he even does a better job than Troy Barker as a replacement. Troy Barker is 3rd best so I'm not trying to put him down. I just don't see him as good as Richard Empcar.)

    Troy Barker (Apparently he's gotten better in Arkham Knight I forgot to mention).

    Christopher Corey Smith

    Steve Blum

    Jeff Bennett

    Not counting Mark Hamill cuz he's staple, at the top for me.

    Out of the list John Dimaggio and Troy Baker are my favourites. Dimaggio edging out baker a bit cuz i really really liked him in under the red hood, he has a really special joker voice.

    I've heard all of them, but I will rank the ones I can remember off the top of my head. Not counting Dee Bradley Baker-cause he had one laugh in Son of Batman (if I remember correctly)

    Mark Hamill

    John DiMaggio

    Kevin Michael Richardson

    Troy Baker

    Michael Emerson

    Brett Spiner- didn't love his but it was interesting and did hit the young justice tone.

    1. Hamill 2. DiMaggio, 3. Baker I've read Tim Curry was the first choice for Joker in Batman:TAS but was ultimately a bit too dark. I'd love to hear his version of what may have been.

    Mark Hamill (Troy Baker is a runner up as he is doing Hamill's Batman, but a spot on impression)

    John DiMaggio

    Kevin Michael Richardson

    And Michael Emerson in that order for favorites!

    Most of us probably watched a lot of the Batman animated tv show when we were younger (great show if you havn't seen it) and Mark Hamill was killing it as the voice of the Joker. He did such a great job in fact that most others more or less try and emulate him. Hamill's Joker voice was and remains the standard the others are aspiring to match.

    Kevin Michael Richardson did a great voice but it's often overshadowed by the fact the show gave Joker a barefoot monkey-like design.

    Brent Spiner's my least favorite but that partially has to do with the terrible lines he was given.

    Gotta go with Mark Hamill. He's the best.

    Brent Spiner, Data from Star Trek...now that's interesting. Didn't get a chance to catch him on Young Justice. Kevin Michael Richardson and Jeff Bennett I have heard, they were pretty great! Bender, John DiMaggio and Lost's/Person of Interest's Michael Emerson sound pretty interesting...

    If we talking casting director Andrea Romano, this just shows how brilliant she is!

    I don't know why os many people hate Kevin Michael Richardson's Joker. I love it! It was a deeper Joker voice which was refreshing to me.

    Only one on here I dislike is Young Justice's. THat was AWFUL. All the others I like, didn't see, or don't remember enough to have an opinion. Best non-theatrical film Jokers (that I remember):

    1. John DiMaggio
    2. Mark Hamill
    3. Troy Baker
    4. Michael Emerson
    5. Kevin Michael Richardson
    6. Jeff Bennett
    7. Brent Sniper

    I can't judge since I haven't heard every performer but I will say I've enjoyed all the ones I have heard. Mark Hamill seems to set the standard by which all are judged by. I've never heard anyone say he's not the best voice of the Joker. I like Troy Baker other voice work but the way he mimics Hamill's Joker is uncanny. It's not matching it but also still be able to perform so well while doing it. Dimaggio brought something different he kept his tone but the crazy and some great lines. Kevin Michael Richardson was excellent he sounded like he was having fun reading lines. I would either be creeped out or laugh along with him. Richard Epcar I actually didn't like him MK vs DC but when he did Injustice I really liked what he did. Played with the Joker more just to hear his lines. Emerson's performance really brought the DKR Joker to life from the pages of book. His calm demeanor in voice before actually confronting Batman then you heard the crazy.( Calm joker scares me more). Spiner got flack from fans of YJ for his take but it was fine. I've never been disappointed whenever he does a VO in a cartoon. Now Jeff Bennett in Brave and Bold actually took me longer to like. I've heard him perform before but after I found it fit the look and overall tone of show. He was his own Joker like all the performers are.

    Obviously Mark Hamill is great but I also really liked Troy Baker in Batman: Assault on Arkham and Arkham Origins.
