This is a question My Arch-nemesis

I lived in fear of a Darth Vader-esque school dinner lady who stood me perpetually at the naughty table for refusing to eat mushy peas. An ordeal made worse after I was caught spooning the accursed veg into her wellies. Who, we ask, has wrecked your life?

Thanks to Philly G for the suggestion

My nemesis is...
...rather unsurprisingly my boss. Now I know we've had all manner of employment related nemeses (nemesises? nemesisis?) but this guy is a wanknut of the top level.

For those that don't know, I'm employed by a fairly large company. They've been around since the 17th century, and as is the case with these sort of groups they've expanded into several product areas - no I'm not naming names but a quick google should sort you out. I'm employed by the entertainment division, which is alright as nobody minds you doing your own thing every so often.

So the boss man got where he is through family (as these types always do) and quickly managed to get his people installed throughout the company - chums and the like keeping on eye on the rest of us.

Now I'm a fan of my alternate music, but this guy is a total goth, occasionally turning up with black eyeliner on or wearing tight leather trousers. The thing is he's also the most bigoted person around. We have a mental health facility down the road from our offices, and he's always shouting at the patients when he meets them in the street, saying they should be chucked in the asylum (his words). He's even beaten a few of them up, although usually when he's got his cronies along with him. Of course nobody ever believes it's him.

He's notorious for shutting down projects he doesn't like the look of, although he usually waits until the last moment to do it - inevitably leaving you looking like a complete nob end for thinking of the idea in the first place. The worst time was when I came up with this awesome wee TV gizmo (can't say more - NDA) and he shot me down right in front of a load of investors. Apparently it "raised too many questions" which is exactly the sort of nebulous crap he's well known for.

Of course when he fitted a jet engine on the back of his motor and started hanging around with this kid who wore leather that was so tight you could see his nipples we all knew he had gone too far.

I was thinking it might be batman, but I don't know enough about batman to be sure!
I went into the Marvel Comic Museum thingy in Niagara City when I was on holiday in Canada and it meant nothing to me. My friends were green with jealousy and it meant nothing to me! (Is batman even a Marvel character?)
Please excuse me for being a dunce!
