Joker is the greatest villain because he’s the most suited to his opposite, the hero, who also happens to be the greatest superhero: Batman. Batman would arguably not be the world’s most popular hero without Joker, whose presence and actions have forced the Dark Knight to go above and beyond his skill set to superhuman levels in order to stop the Joker.

Heroes can also be wavered and effected by the characteristics of the society they were created in. However, heroes are not real but are created, usually to give hope to people or to provide a boost of morale to people who are being oppressed in away.
