I admit to not having read more than a few dozen issues of his series (due to one particular artist whose style I hated) but should have some idea, surely? Cos arch enemies tend to recur.

 

DC seem recently to have suggested Deathstroke the Tosser, but he’s more general Titans than Dick. I remember lots of Blockbuster, the smart version. Would it be him? Rapist Tarantula? Ladyshave?

 

Or do I  fall back on Crazy Quilt?

The shadow of the Batman which has influenced his every decision in his professional and personal lives.
Deep!
Well, Blockbuster the smart one is (was?) dead, but he could have been in the running. I would still think it is Deathstroke. Yes he is a Titans foe, but he seems to have a specific dislike of Dick.

"Specific dislike of..." Uh-huh-huh-huh...
One, keep it clean, boys!

Two, after the Post-Crisis period with One Earth, if Robin was 11-12 when he started, I can't see anyone NOT calling Batman out for it. Even if his contemporaries were fine with it, in my mind, heroes like Doctor Mid-Nite, Wildcat and especially the Sandman would have confronted him and tried to save Robin from this dangerous path!
Ya think? Sidekicks were hardly unknown in the Golden Age.
That's right. Sandman would have never allowed another hero to run around with a minor as a sidekick. Right, Sandy?
Yes, considering what happened to Sandy! See "JLA" # 113- The Creature in the Velvet Cage!
In the Dixon run, you could argue it was either Blockbuster or a crooked (literally) cop named Soames (his neck was twisted 180 degrees -- a disquieting visual to be sure). But both are dead no, I think.

Honestly, I'd go with Two-Face -- he and Dick have a fair bit of history, IIRC.
For a while there, Dick's biggest enemy was Dan Didio.

Check out the Secret Headquarters (my store) website! it's much better now!

Listen to WOXY.com, it's the future of rock-n-roll!

Ah, I misunderstood you previously.

I rather like the idea of a velvet cage!

The Two-Face business always feels a bit tacked on to me - isn't it a post-Crisis addition to the history of a character whose history was never wiped at the Crisis. Besides, I want Dick to have an exclusive villain!

Is that too picky? I think it may be too picky.
