Green Lantern Vs Sinestro


I had real hatred with Venture I didn't have to fake it. That sweet loathing just poured out of me whenever I saw his pathetic face! I just-I just wanted to kick his ass! I wanted to build a machine to kick his ass! I wanted to BUILD AN EMPIRE TO HOUSE THE MACHINE TO KICK HIS ASS!!

An archenemy is the foil to the hero. Their presence may not be as powerful as the Big Bad, but their feud with the Hero is usually more personal. Most archenemies possess traits similar to the Hero as a way of displaying the full extent to the Hero's character.
