Everytime I think of antagonists in comics, I'm mostly drawn to the general themes that bring about the downfall of the protagonists. sometimes they are societal, sometimes family related.

1- Gender and Ethnicity -- Adrian Tomine's Shortcominga
2- Waves -- Julie Delporte, Everywhere Antennas
3- Time Travel -- Jason, I Killed Adolf Hitler
4- Ambition and disappointment -- Seiichi Hayachi, Red Colored Elegy
5- Father figures -- Chris Ware, Jimmy Corrigan
