    Default Secondary arch-enemies of comics?

    Comic books thrives off a hero and their greatest enemy, but as heroes often have multiple, someone often stands as second best. What examples of this are there?

    Here are some I can give from Marvel that illustrate this:

    Here are the main arch-enemies:

    Spider-Man - Green Goblin/Norman Osborn
    Iron Man - Mandarin
    Captain America - Red Skull
    Wolverine - Sabretooth
    Daredevil - Kingpin

    Now here are the secondary arch-enemies:

    Spider-Man - Doctor Octopus
    Iron Man - Justin Hammer
    Captain America - Baron Zemo
    Wolverine - Lady Deathstrike
    Daredevil - Bullseye

    I think this gets a good point across. So, what examples are there to be found? Discuss.
