1. Nemesis - Alton Towers 2. Flight Deck - California's Great America 3. Afterburn - Carowinds 4. Alpengeist - Busch Gardens Williamsburg 5. Patriot - World's of Fun
Patriot only just made it into number 5. I was unsure between that and the Batman clones. Patriot won mainly because it didn't make me feel very dizzy after exiting unlike the 3 Batman clones I have ridden.

1: Talon (An extremely underrated coaster. The layout is one of B&M's best) 2: Montu (Unique, oldschool, well-themed, intense. I loved it) 3: Batman (Very forceful, smooth, intense, yet without the speed of others) 4: Raptor (Smooth, fast, iconic, but dies a little at the end) 5: Alpengeist (Great inversions, huge and snappy, but a little too rattly for my taste)
As of now, my Top 5 B&M inverts (which incidentally is one of my absolute favorite coaster types) would be:
1. Afterburn - Carowinds (I thought this layout was perfect, and it was full of forces!) 2. Talon - Dorney Park (As someone else mentioned, I feel this coaster is extremely underrated. Love this layout as well!) 3. Raptor - Cedar Point (I've always thought this one is awesome. Still get pumped to ride it after all these years. Great elements, including that awesome ending helix!) 4. Alpengeist - BGW (Massive invert that delivered in every aspect.....totally dug that wicked first drop!) 5. Batman: TR - SF Great America (I know they're clones - and damn good ones! - but for some reason of the 2 I've ridden I thought this one was better. Old school intensity at its best!)
Honorable mention goes out to Great Bear at Hersheypark. I know some say it's rather short, but I adore the helix right off the lift leading into the plunge to the creek!
I would rather be off riding coasters!

* Out of all the Batmans I've ridden (SFGAm, SFstL, SFGAdv, and Sea World San Antonio), I'd have to give the slight edge to the original at Great America, however really there was no noticeable difference.
