exactly what i said. What is the monarchs beef with old Rusty? did i miss that episode?
The only thing we know about their history is that they went to college together, but didn’t really know each other well, but had the same creative writing class. Why The Monarch insists on tormenting Dr. V we may never know. It may be simply that, being a ineffectual villian, he needed an ineffectual archenemy.
Because they’re nemesises. That’s what nemesises do.
Maybe Rusty mocked his “way too specific poetry about butterflies.”
