There are a few hints that Joe Smith is in fact Nemesis, not Samaritan. The opening credits sequence focuses on the creation of the hammer used by Nemesis. Even after Sam learns the truth about Joe's power and Joe comes clean with him, Joe continues to state, truthfully, that he is NOT Samaritan. Sam never thought to ask if Joe was Nemesis - Joe simply wouldn't volunteer that information. At several points during his fights with gang members, Joe shows extreme rage before hesitating and then performing a non-lethal attack. This is Joe fighting his villainous urge to kill and instead show restraint as his brother would have. The film score also implies this, as one of the tracks is titled "Cyrus vs. Nemesis", which suggests that Cyrus--the villain--goes up against the supervillain.
