How exactly is Enemy Within different from Superpowered Evil Side? Aren't they essentially the same thing?

Many stories have a main protagonist and a main antagonist. In Enemy Within, the antagonist and the protagonist are two sides of the opposite coin, and generally share the same body, or are alternate settings for the same person. Superpowered Evil Side is usually used to fight the true antagonist. It's the dark power that the protagonist is holding back but ultimately comes in handy to fight— it's the protagonist going over the deep end.
