28: recognizing your nemesis

in IV: a decade of curious people and dangerous ideas, chuck klosterman breaks it down.
he writes:

The Joker was Batman’s nemesis, but — ironically — his archenemy was Superman, since Superman made Batman entirely mortal and generally nonessential. Nobody likes to admit this, but Batman fucking hated Superman; Superman is the reason Batman became an alcoholic.

and goes on to list how to tell the difference between your nemesis and archenemy. i always thought it was funny.
