London, Dec 25 (ANI): Late Aussie actor Heath Ledgers role as the Joker in The Dark Knight has beaten US President George W Bush to bag the title of Greatest Villain Ever.
The Batman baddie took the No 1 spot in a survey by Chewits.

Star Wars legend Darth Vader came third and Freddy Krueger, the gruesome villain from the Nightmare On Elm Street movies, was in fourth place.
