To start with, such poeple exist at almost all places, only the number varies depending on the organization.But it would be a sin if you "grew up and realized that life is like that". Beware of taking an impulsive decision, but by all means get proactive in dealing with this problem rather than being a silent witness to it.

I had faced a similar problem back in my last company ........ most of the tech leads that I had to work under did not deserve to be in that role .......... their contribution on the technical front used to be zilch ....... all they did was maintain documents and allocate work to others ........ and the worst part was that they did not think there was anything wrong in it ......... as if tech leads are not supposed to contribute "technically" ........ ( in comparison your guy seems to be better ....... you have mentioned that he has guided atleast one
project to proper delivery ........ I can't imagine my tech leads doing that ) ......

Your worst fear that you will loose all the joy of going to work can very much come true ..... it happened with me ........ each day I had to force myself to report to work ......... I did not quit right away since I had made the mistake of signing a service agreement with my company ........ I quit just sometime back ........ quit the very same day that my bond expired ........ ofcourse I did not quit due to one single guy ......... I quit because the whole bl**dy organization was full of such people ........ I knew there were better places waiting for me ....

The way I see it ....... if you are uncomfortable working with this guy at the same level ...... it is going to be difficult for you to work under him .... So go ahead and let your superiors know ........ but make sure that they are the types who can understand your problem and can do something about it ....... ( remember , they are the same people who promoted this guy of yours ....... ) ....... you have mentioned your company is great and you are considered a valuable member in your team ........ so things should work out ......... but if they don't .......... quit ........ quit asap rather than quiting later
when disillusionment has set in .......

By the way, if you somehow decide to or have to work under this guy,if he
says anything that directly hurts you ( as mentioned by you ), I suggest give it to him in the face.That surely won't be a good attitude for most companies ........... I certainly would consider that attitude good.
