Mr. Polka Dot
Batman may very well be the most iconic comic book series of all time, but it also has some of the most ridiculous villains. Even some of Batman’s most recognizable foes are quite odd compared to the well developed characters seen in other comics like X-Men. Some of these villains are so terribly conceived that they’re just plain funny. Have a laugh and take a look at all 10 of these laughably lame Batman villains.
First up is Mr. Polka Dot, who first appeared in Detective Comics #300. This ridiculous villain has the ability to rip off the dots on his costume which them transform into a variety of devices like a buzz saw and a flying saucer.

Calculator first appeared in Detective Comics #463. He purposefully fought superheroes to learn their abilities using his costume that analyzes his opponents’ tactics. He later re-invented himself as the brains of the Secret Society of Super-Villains and became considerably less lame.

Crazy Quilt first appeared in Boy Commandos #15. This guy was blinded after being shot by a fellow criminal and then regained his sight through an experimental procedure. The surgery unfortunately caused him to see only bright and vivid colors, which drove him to insanity. His powers come from his hypnotizing helmet that also projects laser beams and allows Crazy Quilt to see.

Ten-Eyed Man made his first appearance in Batman #226. This war veteran was blinded in warehouse explosion and then gained sight through a procedure that allowed his fingers to act as eyes.
