Batman's rogue gallery is considered the best in comics by just about everybody. While most of us prefer to think of ourselves as the good guys, there are those among us who prefer to be more villainous in our fictional fantasies.

For those of you who have an evil itch to scratch, we have come up with this quiz that asks the question: Which Batman villain are you? Hold your maniacal laughter until the end, please.
1) What were you doing before you became a super villain?
A) I was still a criminal, but a relatively minor petty crook, and far from a criminal mastermind.
B) I was working as a scientist for one of the biggest corporations in Gotham.
C) I was working as a psychiatrist.
D) I had very little in the way of a career before surfacing as a villain.
E) I was in law, and was well-respected as an attorney.
2) What is your primary motivation in crime?
A) I enjoy creating chaos for the sake of it.
B) I want revenge on Bruce Wayne after his company indirectly caused a family member to die.
C) I just enjoy the challenge of destroying people, but the money is a nice bonus.
D) Power. I want as much control as I can get, over as many people as possible.
E) I enjoy toying with the dichotomy between good and evil, and forcing my foes to think about the real difference between justice and injustice.
3) What caused you to become a villain instead of a hero?
A) During my previous job I was involved in an accident that caused me to be severely deformed and lose complete control of my mental state.
B) Losing a loved one drove me so mad with grief that I couldn't imagine doing anything else.
C) Being a hero simply isn't as fun; I get too much gratification out of seeing how far I can twist people.
D) I had a really bad childhood, and I was ostracized by my family. I guess it made me somewhat resentful.

4) What’s your preferred method of disposing of your enemies?
A) Whatever is handy, mostly, but I prefer anything with a bit of panache.
B) I designed a special weapon that can destroy everything from a single person to a whole city. It’s really COOL.

Mostly As: You are none other than the Clown Prince of Crime, The Joker. You’re a villain because you enjoy causing anarchy, and you like to see Batman sweat. Sure, you might have a sad past that led you onto the path of crime, but none of that is really a concern of yours now. It’s just too much fun being evil!
Mostly Bs: You are the tragic Mr. Freeze, who is constantly trying to get revenge on Bruce Wayne for his company’s cold refusal to invest in technology that could have saved your dying wife. You theme everything around the cold, as an accident makes you wear a futuristic suit to keep you from getting too warm.
Mostly Cs: You are everyone’s favorite psychiatrist, The Scarecrow. You enjoy messing with people’s minds, most of all, and can’t help but make a buck here and there. Even if you had all the money you could ever need, you’d still keep up with crime because it’s a wonderful challenge to break someone’s mind, piece by piece.
Mostly Ds: You are the ostracized child, The Penguin. Your parents abandoned you and you turned to crime as a means of forcing people to be around you, essentially. Through the power you’ve gained as one of Gotham’s biggest crime lords, you have tons of people who do what you say. More than your stupid parents can really say.
Mostly Es: You are the coin-flippin’ Two-Face. You became a villain after you couldn’t see the point in being a hero anymore, as you believe the only real justice is pure chance. You capture people, flip a coin, and let that decide whether your victims live or die. You’ve tried to come back to the side of good a couple times, but it never seems to work out in the end.
