He is a son of privilege, an inheritor of billions from his deceased parents. He owns a fleet of the finest cars and a hanger full of planes and has countless technological gadgets at his command. Donning a mask and long flowing cape, he's a man in white fighting relentlessly for a cause he believes in. Follow the violent fantasies come to life of the villain to top all villains in an in-your-face, unapologetic tour-de-force of action, ultraviolence and over-the-top humour...

Nemesis collects together issues 1-4 of the miniseries of the same name, which has also been reproduced in five parts in Titan's CLiNT magazine.

The series follows a super villain who makes it his business to take down the best police departments from some of the world's largest cities. However, when he comes to America and kidnaps the President in order to flush his latest target out into the open, little does he realise what sort of hero he's up against.

Nemesis is an interesting miniseries.The first teaser image for the series featured the caption "What if Batman was the Joker?" (although originally the creators had wanted to use "What if Batman was a c*nt?") and this pretty much sums up how twisted Nemesis is.

While this isn't as smart as the creator's Kick-Ass series, there is still enough here to make Nemesis a worthwhile purchase.
