I really Varrick was Mako's archenemy, at least for book 2. He mostly antagonized and Mako and Asami. Even in the trope page it stated that lex Luthor is Superman's arch enemy, because it was personal. The same thing applies to Varrick for Mako. Everything Varrick did to mako got quite personal. Furthermore the article sums it up by saying that an archenemy "generally refers to the enemy the hero considers to be his Arch Enemy". Again, why do you think Mako bears a strong grudge against Varrick? Why do you think Mako has been taking great efforts to foil Varrick? Mako does consider Varrick his arch enemy because again, Varrick's deceptions of those close to him became a personal edge, and mako needed to stop him.

He was the villain for half an arc, and Mako was trying to expose him because he tricked Asami into selling off her company. He's doing his job as a police officer. Lex Luthor is Superman's arch enemy because it's personal to him. He hates Superman. Mako doesn't hate Varrick personally, he's protecting his friends. And he's not one to Asami, either; she got played by him and got everything back in the end. There's nothing left.

In short, as I said in the comments, stop trying to shoehorn it in. Your premise relies a sketchy interpretation of his motives at best, and Varrick ceases to be an antagonist as soon as that arc is done.

First of all, being a police officer is not the only reason he fights for good. He's been fighting for good since he joined he Avatar. second, Mako does indeed hate varrick, because Varrick framed him. Even in book 3 Varrick may not be a villain anymore, but Mako still. Hates Varrick for having framed him. So I want to point out that it's quite innacurate to say that Mako doesn't hate Varrick. The only thing that's personal to Mako was when Varrick framed him.

No matter how much you say I'm wrong, I am not going to agree with you.

The fact that' you've downgraded to arguing his hate for Varrick already shows you know the rest is on thin ice. Of course Mako hates Varrick for framing him. Anyone would. But do you see him do anything other than act annoyed? No. He's let it go by the end of that dinner. It happened, he got over it. Same thing with Asami. She lost her company, got it back. Varrick doesn't continue to be an antagonist to them. He isn't like Luthor or Barbosa. He's just an arc villain turned comic relief, nothing more. And if he truly hated Varrick, he wouldn't be tolerating his advice later.

I think this discussion could use a bit cooler heads.

Anyhow, based upon the Avarar wiki it doesn't seem that they interact enough to fit.

Forget that wiki, the admins are jerks.

Well, know this, if I make my own wiki on the tropes of the franchise, or on the franchise itself, I will put whatever information I want seen, and whatever information I think is right. You cannot tell me it is wrong, because I will be in charge of my own wiki.

Will your wiki have blackjack and hookers as well?
