The Dark Knight - 7 Psychopaths by AndrewKwan The Dark Knight - 7 Psychopaths by AndrewKwan
So, I loved the movie Seven Psychopaths and I thought the name could fit very well when referring to Batman Characters!
Here is my minimalist take on Christopher Nolan's trilogy and I'll be doing a Classic comic book version with a few different characters.

I only say Talia as far as tha movie is concerned Bcuz ZsasZ was mostly a minor cameo N tha movie & his character was never taken much further than UR average street thug...that happens 2 use a knife but every1 remembers Talia's knife much more vividly admittedly mostly Bcuz of her speech after using said instrument of torture!

This peice wasn't about including the most know characters or villains in the series. While most of then ARE well known, my intention was to present the different characters that show psychopathic tendencies. Also why I don't have Catwoman included either. Talia didn't make the cut because a) even in his short screen time, he showed more psychotic behavior and mental disorder than Talia did to me, and b) Talia's visual aesthetic and psychology is too similar to Ras al Ghul which isn't what I want in my design- the characters should all have different designs and present a different psychosis. So to me, Talia and Ras have the same psychotic goals but Talia also has the need  to honor her father and seek revenge. In my book, that's not good enough to knock out a serial killer that scars his body every time he kills. How that character  is portrayed is more important than how much screen time or how crucial he is to the plot.

You make a great argument but it also proves my point 2 an extent because my point is that(like I said B4)ZsasZ was never shown(or even mentioned)2 scar his body every time he kills, I had 2 go beyond tha movies 2 find that out! Catwoman isn't a fair point either Bcuz she didn't really have an origin N these movies either like she did N tha movies that preceded...she wasn't even really tha same character where she went through great lengths 2 resemble a cat but just so happened 2 have goggles that looked like "cat-ears" when they're not N use on her head and nothing else whatsoever 4 real! Really though, if he seemed more psychotic 2 U then that's UR opinion that I can't truly fault U 4 having!
ALSO
I have 2 ask though if Talia was 2 similar 2 Ra's Al Ghul then how does Bane make tha list since his motivations reflected Talia's 4 most of tha movie until it's revealed that she was tha real mastermind tha whole time?

Zsasz was kept in Arkham Insane Asylum for the Criminally Insane in the movie. 'Nuff said. This is an art peice, so it's about the visuals. Like I said before, I was looking for different aspects of psychosis, and a strong visual design. Both of which Zsasz has over Talia. The Joker didn't have an origin story in the movies either, so your point about Catwoman is moot. And on your last note, your don't have to be as psychotic as the people you employ. While you may be right about Bane having similar goals as Ras, he has an intensified lust for violence and cruelty as well. Both Bane AND Zsasz have a stronger imagery than Talia as well. Honestly, if you're not happy with my art than you're free to make whatever art you want that satisfies YOUR tastes. If we're not going to talk about the art, then I don't really have anything else to say here.

Fine but let me just say that I only brought up Catwoman Bcuz U did 1st and I said her origin story would've made her as psychotic as the others whereas tha Joker(much like Scarecrow)was portrayed as being psychotic despite not having an origin story 2 the highest degree but he was also a criminal mastermind more that anything else but ZsasZ being put N Arkham was used mostly 2 portray tha likelihood that Dr Niles Crane(tha Scarecrow)had ties 2 criminal activities...ya know, corruption!
ALSO
UR right about this discussion having nothing 2 do w/ the execution of UR artwork but this does have 2 do w/ the selection of UR targets so it does have about 50% 2 do w/ art but I can't blame U 4 selecting ZsasZ over Talia after further review but oly Bcuz we do eventually C him "bring a knife 2 a gun fight" N tha movie but that's it where I say Talia's knife stands out mostly cuz of its relevance N tha movie; I will apologize about 50% 4 this whole thing Bcuz this mostly has 2 do w/ my disdain 4 people seemingly giving more credit 2 a 1-note character over a character that's far more important or effective!
