* AntagonistTitle: Officer Morrow is the actual hero of the comic, but its titled after its super-villain.



* ForTheEvulz: Nemesis' motivation for everything he does. He kills, destroys and torments people on a whim all for his sick pleasure. While he tells Blake he is doing this out of revenge for busting his parents and sending them to their deaths (see ItsPersonal) [[spoiler:it's actually false, and he is just doing this for kicks]]. The heroes exploit this when they managed to arrest him by tricking him into stealing a little girl's heart transplant because they knew he couldn't resist doing something so cruel, [[spoiler:though it turns out getting arrested was part of his plan]].

to:

* {{Expy}}: Nemesis is what you would get if you gave Batman's resources and skills to the Joker, he even wears a similar costume (its [[ManInWhite all-white]] and lacks the ears). Blake Morrow is obviously one for Commissioner Gordon.

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Invoked by Nemesis during his prison break. He elects to [[OneManArmy take on nearly a hundred riot cops by himself]] in front of the locked-up convicts just to show what he is capable of. After freeing them all, he becomes their leader.



* ForTheEvulz: Nemesis tells Blake that he is the son of two complete psychos Blake busted and sent to their deaths [[spoiler: but it's all lies. The son in question died before the story even began. Nemesis is just some rich, bored guy looking for kicks as a supervillain.]]

* GreaterScopeVillain: [[spoiler:The mysterious group that turned Nemesis into a supervillain. Their existence is only revealed at the end of the comic, they are still at large and planning to expand their operations, though they promise to leave Blake and his family alone]].
* ItsPersonal: Nemesis' parents were two psychopaths that Blake busted and sent to their deaths and this is the reason why he wants to torment the good officer so badly. [[spoiler: Subverted when its revealed Nemesis is merely impersonating the son (who died years before the story began as an opium addict in India). Nemesis is just some rich, bored guy looking for kicks as a supervillain.]]



* KickTheSonOfABitch: Considering that Stewart willingly helped Nemesis with his atrocities and is actively gloating about it its not hard to feel sorry when Nemesis blows his brains out.

%%* TakeAThirdOption* TakeAThirdOption: [[spoiler:When Nemesis forces Blake to chose between saving his wife and the President, the choice is taken out of his hand when the President decides to take out Nemesis himself and orders Blake to detonate the bomb strapped on him]].
* TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat: Exaggerated in the most ludicrous way, though in letter format instead of an actual video tape. [[spoiler:At the end of the comic, Blake receives a letter from Nemesis' benefactors congratulating him for defeating him and revealing they are an organization that provides bored rich people to live out a perverse supervillain fantasy. The kicker? The letter was written ''10 years'' ago and somehow managed to correctly predict all that happened in the comics such as Blake's daughter being impregnated and having triplets]].



* VillainousBreakdown: Nemesis gets flustered when the President is willing to die in order to stop him, and is openly enraged after Blake beats the crap out of him.

Should not be confused with ''ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock'' or ''Film/StarTrekNemesis''. Nor should he be confused for the hero with the same name from Creator/DCComics. You may be looking for ArchNemesis, a trope about a person's single greatest enemy, or Nemesis from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis''.
