I dunno, I think it's much nicer if your Arch Enemy is an Obvious Villain. You definitely don't want your Arch Enemy to be reasoned and pleasant. Then you;d end up having to constantly reassess all your beliefs on the way to work every morning, and that would be way too much effort.

These days though I get by quite nicely on Metro, because it is inoffensive, and I can't read Dutch very well so only understand about 1/100 of the story.
