* This is common in SuperHero comics, as WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity. Perhaps the single best-known example is ComicBook/JeanGrey of the Comicbook/XMen, who, as Dark Phoenix, goes to star-eating levels before committing suicide. (Though later {{retcon}}s serve to [[ContinuitySnarl confuse the issue]].) Doctor Doom is also a frequent offender.

** Interestingly averted with [[Characters/XMenAcolytes Exodus]], who despite being an omega level mutant on par with Apocalypse himself reminds his followers that he is not God.


Added DiffLines:

** ComicBook/AdamWarlock's creator the High Evolutionary plays this straight, being an EvilutionaryBiologist who artificially evolved himself into a higher state of being. He often claims to be the apex of human evolution, a boast which doesn't quite bear out when one considers his frequent tendency to devolve back into human or even sub-human states (more than once he has been reduced to a literal ape).

** Doom's God complex is impressive enough that [[InsanityImmunity he can use it to]] NoSell mind control. Other people exist for Doom to order about, not the other way around.

* ''ComicBook/GothamCityGarage'': Given the number of people swearing by Lex and reiterating Lex loves them and the fact that years are counted from the called "Luthorrise", it looks like ComicBook/LexLuthor has taken his narcissism and megalomania to the extreme.



* In the ''PlanetHulk'' storyline, [[spoiler:the Red King claims to be God in the flesh while fighting the ComicBook/IncredibleHulk in a [[AMechByAnyOtherName mecha suit, yes it was a mecha]]... then the Hulk got [[UnstoppableRage really mad and strongly begged to differ.]]]]

** It helps his case that Supes shares a setting with ''actual'' gods, many of whom are as far above him as he is above us, and as such could stomp his ass if he ever got too uppity. Exactly ''how'' far is DependingOnTheWriter, many of whom tend to treat Supes as a genuine god [[AGodIAmNot in denial]].

ComicBook/WonderWoman and the various gods of the pantheon tend to think of Superman as a demi-god. Batman in his files, according to supplementary material of ''ComicBook/{{Justice}}'' states that Superman is a god -- and thankfully doesn't think of himself as one.

* ''ComicBook/TheGreatPowerOfChninkel'': The great crime of the ancient Chinkel king N'om was to have himself worshipped as a god in place of the Almighty Creator god O'ne. The whole chinkel race has since been forced to live in bondage to atone for this and N'om himself [[spoiler:was imprisoned in the interdimensional void and his soul split up into three immortal tyrants waging a ForeverWar amongst themselves.]]

** Evronians of the same subspecies as their emperor tend to imply being gods who know everything happening in their realm. Thankfully, they don't have the ability to back up these claims.

** The GalacticConqueror Moldrock, introduced in the relaunch stories, claims to be all-powerful when outside [[SealedEvilInACan the Pentadimensional world he was sealed in]] by the Coronians. Differently from the Evronian emperors, he can back it up (WordOfGod is that he's the most powerful enemy Paperinik will ever face), and has proven it by [[NobleDemon turning Corona from a desert planet to a lush garden world]] ''as soon as he got his powers''.

* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': When Wismerhill asks [[SorcerousOverlord Haazheel Thorn]] if he is truly a demigod as his followers say, Haazheel says he might as well be. [[spoiler:In fact, he is the son of the most powerful demon in Hell.]]

* Borderline example: Evil Kryptonians like General Zod tend to see themselves as above everyone due to their incredible power. At least Zod is GenreSavvy enough to realize ''some'' people can threaten them, urging his {{Mooks}} to learn decent fighting skills and battle tactics.
