10 Famous Superheroes Who Have Evil Siblings

Having a sibling as an arch-nemesis is the oldest plot in the history books for any superhero. The plot would generally start with the siblings not knowing about each other’s existence or one of them know about the other and it is generally the elder one. The plot generally hovers around the fact that how one sibling was always favored over the other which often leads them to follow different paths and finally crossing paths as superpowered adults with hidden ulterior motives at least for the sibling that has turned over a bad leaf. The epic narrative of the sibling rivalry has been a long ongoing hunt for the best sibling between the two-quarreling siblings dishing out at each other, with one sibling looking for world domination and rubbing the good sibling’s nose in the dirt and the good sibling trying to do what is right and save countless lives in the process along with the lives of the siblings and hoping the sibling will have some sense knocked into his/her brain.
