  1. So… a cross-dressing bad guy is gonna recruit thugs that can headbutt people into deadly leprosy? Or was “nemesis” defined differently some time ago?

  2. Lost armless lepers? I dunno…maybe “lepers” are the ’30s version of “zombies.” If it’s *zombies* we’re talkin’ about, then Dr. Nemesis may be the the man. Otherwise, perhaps the set-up just calls for a really good *medical* doctor. But that wouldn’t be nearly as exciting, now would it?

  3. Sounds to me, fellas, that the good (…at this point we’ll assume the doctor is a law-abiding citizen.) doctor maybe a “nemesis” to evil-doers everywhere. And think on this: maybe Dr. Nemesis is the only man qualified to provide directions to these confused amputees. Because, let’s face it, this could be the 30’s-40’s, and folks then weren’t as tolerant as they are today*. An armless soul with a serious skin condition wanders up to you and you’re going to show compassion and understanding. Right? But then? Women would faint and men would run for the nearest exit. They needed a man with a stern constitution to deal with these poor souls. Now, as for the killers– well, Dr. Nemesis has the prescription for evil: take two knuckle beatdowns and call your lawyer (…from prison) in the morning!

    *Thank God it wasn’t the 50’s; they just didn’t tolerate medical deformities when Ike was in office! You could end up in a rural sideshow if caught or, at worst, in dog food. Sheesh.

  4. I Like Ike!

  5. Is Dr. Nemesis really the best name they could think of? Good God, give me a fuckin break; that’s hilarious!
