First of all, like someone else said, Arthas was never really a heroic figure. It's easy to be likeable when you're a crown prince, but as soon as he ran into any trouble (Stratholme) he went nuts. Sure, Ner'zhul contrived the plot to put Arthas in a no-win situation, but faced with a lot of bad options of how to handle Stratholme, he chose the absolute worst one imaginable. That was all his doing.And second of all, what would he be rebelling against? Darth Vader's claim to redemption is very debatable, but at least he killed the emperor. Same for Grom with Mannoroth. Arthas, on the other hand, *is* the Big Bad. Everything we've seen suggests that. Arthas, Ner'zhul and the Lich King are all one person, even if they didn't start out that way, even if some of them supposedly wouldn't have done what the Lich King has, etc. I'm pretty sure the Evil Overlord isn't going to kill himself, and even if he were, why wait until the adventurers fought all the way to his throne room to do it?
