I think the Joker was, hands down. What makes him stand out from other evil villain is that he is always happy and always smiling. Heath Ledger did an awesome job playing him!
Who, in your opinion, was the best evil villain of all time?

Goldfinger seemed to enjoy himself, and don't know about the rest of you, but I would have enjoyed having a mint julep or two with him at the horse farm in Kentucky.

In recent times, maybe Hannibal Lecter.

The Joker is entirely boring. Batman has so many other interesting villains, but Hollywood seems incapable of thinking up anything good for them. The TV show did a better job.

Loki in The Avengers, because he was so complex and multi-layered. He was damaged, and that's why he became who he was in The Avengers. He's not only evil either, he's hilarious. Some of his one liners made me LMAO.

I'm torn between Iago and Macbeth. Most villains since them have been but poor re-incarnations of one or the other, of which Milton's Satan was one of the first. I'll go with Iago because he is more purely evil, a villain's villain, as supposed to Macbeth who is more of a hero-villain, and used to be virtuous before his fall.

Iago's completely overrated, his supposedly genius plan was simply planting a handkerchief. Lady Macbeth's a decent one. In modern times, Voldemort and Hannibal Lecter are both good choices.

Tom Hardy in the miniseries, The Take. He played a murdering, raping, psychopath. That's the first time I ever saw anything he was in and right after I watched it, Batman came out. Now every time I see a picture of him I feel really uncomfortable.

Many say Darth Vader, but I give the credit to Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious (played by gay Ian McDiarmid). His is one of the few, perhaps the only, portrayal of unrepentant, pure evil on film. All other villains have an element of good but not Palpatine. That is one of Lucas' few daring choices in his films. He contrasts the conflict of Darth Vader/Anakin with the purity of Palpatine's evil. He revels in causing suffering. McDiarmid agrees that Palpatine is purity in evil. He has said that even Satan was once an angel who fell; Palpatine had no such fall. Asked if Palpatine had any redeeming qualities, McDiarmid had to think a bit and said, "He's a patron of the arts."
