[[caption-width:290:You evil, evil man!]]
What if {{Batman}} was TheJoker?

Nemesis follows the adventures of a rich playboy that enjoys the finer things in life: fast cars, beautiful women, and [[NeverSayDie "dealing"]] with someone on a 28 day (violent) crime spree. Marketed as the comic that "Makes Kick-Ass look like shit!" this is MarkMillar's latest work for MarvelComics with a movie adaptation already in consideration.

Hopefully DCComics won't sue.

Should not be confused with ''NemesisTheWarlock'' or ''Film/StarTrekNemesis''. You may be looking for ArchNemesis, a trope about a person's single greatest enemy, or Nemesis from {{Resident Evil 3}}

!!Examples

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Blake's almost as prescient about what criminals will do as Nemesis is about what Law enforcement will do.
* [[spoiler: ChildByRape: Nemesis forces Blake's son and daughter to have sex, after using fertility drugs on her and though Blake's son being gay. Nemesis then made sure that, if they made her have an abortion, Blake's daughter would never be able to bear more children. CompleteMonster indeed.]]
* CompositeCharacter: Of Batman and The Joker.
* DarkAge: The first issue seems like an (albeit well drawn) throwback to early 90s comics: bad writing, pointless cursing and plenty of YouFailPhysicsForever.
* ExecutiveMeddling: [[TropesAreNotBad And thank God for it]]. First issue was supposed to end with Nemesis impaling BarackObama's head on stake, but Marvel's editors stepped in on that one, so it was changed to completely different guy being a president, and only tied up.
* 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.]]
* GambitRoulette: Over the course of the book the [[SerialEscalation ante is sequentially upped]] until the planners appear to have outright clairvoyant omniscience.
* LightIsNotGood: Nemesis who is a villain in a pure white costume
* OurPresidentsAreDifferent: [[spoiler: When Blake is faced with a SadisticChoice, the President or his wife, both of whom are rigged with explosives, the President enforced a third option. He gets in Nemesis' face and orders Blake to blow him up.]]
* RefugeInAudacity: The only way "Holy shit. I'm covered in old person." works at all.
* RuleOfCool: How else is Nemesis able to stay on the outside of a plane mid-flight?
* SadisticChoice
* ShowDontTell: The first issue breaks this rule.
* TakeAThirdOption: See OurPresidentsAreDifferent.
* VillainProtagonist: Yes.
* WhiteShirtOfDeath: Nemesis's costume is entirely white, leaving blood highly visible on it whenever he's slaughtering people.
* XanatosSpeedChess: This is what Blake's playing at least. Just as Nemesis planned he would.
* WarOnCops: Nemesis' main recreational activity. His main target isn't politicians or landmarks, but well known police commissioners.

You've followed a rich playboy that enjoys the finer things in life: fast cars, beautiful women, and [[NeverSayDie "dealing"]] with someone on a 28 day (violent) crime spree. Marketed as the link to "Nemesis" this could refer to:

* A character's ''Arch'' nemesis/ main opponent, which is under '''ArchEnemy'''

Or it could refer to several works called ''Nemesis'', such as:

* The 1992 Cyberpunk film ''Film/{{Nemesis}}''
* The 2009 Frank Millar
