Bruce Wayne is awesome, but not just because he's the Dark Knight. Perhaps more than any other superhero, Batman is defined by the eclectic and philosophically complex gallery of rogues who challenge him in the streets of Gotham City every night. From mutant gang members, to disgraced attorneys, to global criminal masterminds, the Caped Crusader has his work cut out for him. Given how colorful and diverse his opponents are, we thought it would be fun to see which villain our Masterminds most resemble.

Add up the points for each of your answers and divide them by 4. If you have a number between:
1-1.5: You are Ra's al Ghul! Of all the Dark Knight villains, you are philosophically the closest to Batman. Indeed, you were the one that taught him that a symbol outlives the man who creates it. As such, you have made yourself pretty much immortal. Congrats on the everlasting life!
1.6-2.4: You are the Joker! You just want to ask the world one question: why so serious? You think life is too short to be dull. A fan of the absurd and a master of puzzles, you're out to prove that the only constant force in the universe is chaos.
2.5-3.4: You are Bane! You have a lot in common with Batman: you are both combat masterminds, and you are both committed to equality. But you believe that criminals are everywhere—in government, finance, and in everyday life—whereas Batman tends to limit his vigilantism to the streets. Your added zeal has made you the only person to have ever defeated the Dark Knight. Bet that feels pretty cool, huh?
3.5-4: You are Two Face! You have more in common with the Joker than Batman. In the same way he believes chaos is the most influential force in the universe, so you believe it is chance. Your experience with the world has led you to believe that the unbiased act of flipping a coin is the only fair way to make decisions. That way, you take no responsibility for your actions, which makes you extra terrifying.
So... which Dark Knight Villain Are You?
