Yeah, there were a few dumb things about the Red Triangle Gang, but look at what they had in their favor-sword swallowers with real swords; crazed clowns with bombs, bazookas, nunchucks and long knives; fire-eaters who spat fire at their opponents; sadistic strongmen; crazed whackjobs that shot themselves out of cannons as kamikaze missiles, and everything in between.
Sure, Batman clobbered them, but he's Batman. They were a bunch of dangerous psychos that played for keeps, and that's one of the things that made them cool.
If you leave aside the idiocy of their hacking the Batmobile, I still think they'd make a much better model for the Circus of Crime, rather than a bunch of R-List criminals that Omega the Unknown could take out without working up a sweat.
