My Enemy, Myself

58 Covers Featuring Characters Duking It Out With Their Dastardly Doppelgängers

From the German, a Doppelgänger (literally “double walker”) is a look-alike of a living person, and they were originally seen as paranormal harbingers of bad luck. These days, we’re more likely to use the word to describe anyone who’s a spitting image of someone else.
