The Getaway Genius - I loved the idea behind his schtick.

Killer Moth as the "Anti-Batman", aiding and abetting criminals who get into trouble with the Police when committing their Crimes

Crazy Quilt - To renew the weird dynamic of a villain who hates Robin, btu doesn't really care about Batman.

The Monarch of Menace No real reason, I just love the name! \:\)

Calendar Man - Not the deranged, jet-downing-with-a-souped-up-bazooka psycho-freak from the 80-page giant, but the too clever by half calendar-obsessive who changed costumes and themes with every crime.

Gentleman Ghost - I know he's a Hawkman villain, but one of the first comics I bought had him confounding Batman. Of course this was back when his status as a ghost was debatable, and one of the most fun elements about him.

I'd actually like to see Strike Force Kobra return, as they featured revamps of some of Batman's weridest 1950's/60's transformations; Zebra Man, Planet Master, Element Woman etc...

> The Getaway Genius - I loved the idea behind his schtick.

Agreed. He and the Spook both had a gimmick that really worked well with Batman.

> Killer Moth as the "Anti-Batman", aiding and abetting criminals who get into trouble with the Police when committing their Crimes

I'd love to see the classic idea for Killer Moth to make a revamp. Letting him steal Hellgrammite's schtick was a bad development for the character.

We have a new, female one that I do hope to see take on Tim someday.

It IS a nice one. \:\)

I agree. I miss the classic Calendar Man.

> Gentleman Ghost - I know he's a Hawkman villain, but one of the first comics I bought had him confounding Batman. Of course this was back when his status as a ghost was debatable, and one of the most fun elements about him.

I'd like to see Batman take on the 90s Gentleman Ghost, a modern-day descendant of the ghostly one who was the classic gentleman thief.

Anytime anyone uses these guys, I get tickled. Planet Master, especially, has potential.

I believe that the GG might have had a brief re-appearance during Dixon's Robin run, but can't remember if it was the same character. Same MO though.

Not sure about that, CQ1 had a real, if insane, reason for hating Robin, not sure how CQ2 would not seem contrived.

Ah, didn't even know about him, I like it! \:\)

He's a good one though. \:\)

My thought is, "How insane do you have to be to want to be the second Crazy Quilt?" She either admired the original to the point where she'd hate Robin as much as he did, or is family. For that matter, we still don't know what happened to the original... last I saw of him was the prison break in Morrison's JLA run.

He only made one appearance, but he was fun. A thief with a sense of some honor and a genuinely amusing attitude toward what he does. Batman needs FUN villains, if only to contrast with him. \:\)

Ruby Ryder, because she's DC:s prime femme fatale and has not been seen since the 1970s. And because Batman needs more female villains. And because he needs more non-costumed high-profile foes.

Signalman. Okay, he may need a new costume, and to stop flashing that flaregun. But a crime career themed with signals, signs, and semiotics, that's an untapped potential. Really.

The Monarch of Menace, since he was the first villain ever to beat the Batman. Silly name and silly costume does NOT equal being inept.

Killer Moth as the anti-Batman, because he was always meant to be a cool villain and the Charaxes years were pure idiocy.

Black Spider as he was meant to be -- a rogue vigilante killing drug dealers.

Johnny Witts -- the con man with a mind as sharp as Batman's. Not seen since the early 60s.
