* [[Comicbook/TheFlash Wally West]] didn't exactly have the best parents. His father demanded to be given the love that he never got as a child from his family to the point where he (Rudolph West) became the abuser. However, this was actually a retcon, and early comics portrayed Wally and both of his parents as rather close.

**{{Characters/Wally West}}
didn't exactly have the best parents. His father Rudy demanded to be given the love that he never got as a child from his family and his mother was too worried about appearances than being a mother. Canonically, they are emotionally neglectful (unless if count Wally's father selling him out to the point where he (Rudolph West) became the abuser. Manhunters as abusive), but fans often portray them, especially Rudy, as physically abusive. However, this their emotional neglectfulness was actually a retcon, and early comics portrayed Wally and both of his parents as rather close.close.
***Rudy, along with Iris and Daniel, was also a victim of a physically abusive father in ''{{Comicbook/New 52}}''.
**Some of the Rogues had abusive parents.
***Captain Cold and Golden Glider grew up with a physical abusive father.
***The first Captain Boomerang grew up with an abusive father and mother.
**{{Characters/Eobard Thawne}}, on the other hand, had abusive parents who conceived him merely for research, favor his brother, and treat him with cold disdain. This is all emotional neglect, but it crosses the line to abuse when they slap him for getting angry at his younger brother's tantrums.

* ''[[{{ComicBook/Amulet}} Amulet]]'' has the Elf King, who treats his son, Trellis, [[spoiler:and other son, Luger]] abominably. [[spoiler: He had both of their memories repeatedly wiped to the point where the two ''didnít even know they were brothers'']], ordered his soldiers to abuse Trellis whilst he was in their custody, and to top it all off, [[spoiler:gave Trellis his distinctive scar when the latter fought back against being possessed by a [[PeoplePuppets Dark Shadow]], ''which the King himself orchestrated''. This is possibly because he isn't their father at all, [[DeadAllAlong but the Stone using his body.]]]] Then thereís Maxís father, who was emotionally abusive towards his son, pressuring him to follow in his footsteps, and to top it all off, when Max was sent to jail, his father didnít even protest or offer any sort of emotional support.

* Bertron, the alien scientist from ''ComicBook/SupermanDoomsdayHunterPrey'', is this of the creator/father sort in that he subjected his creation, the creature that would someday become Doomsday, to a constant cycle of death and rebirth in order to force evolution upon the child so that he would grow to become the UltimateLifeForm. Upon reaching that goal, however, Bertron found himself at the mercy of his own creation as it turned its attention toward its creators after killing all the resident lifeforms on the planet. Bertron tried to talk down the creature by saying, "You cannot kill...your own father," only to be killed soon afterward. Years later, Waverider would find out that the creature's rampage is fueled by the fact that it sees everything it comes across as a reflection of its creator/father.

* When [[ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog Knuckles]] was born, his parents soon begin arguing about the proper way to raise him. It eventually got so bad that his father Locke divorced his wife and took sole custody of the boy so he could raise him to be a guardian. Locke essentially abandoned his son when he was ten years old, forcing him to fend for himself for years with little or no contact with other people. Locke insists that all of this was done to build character and make Knuckles a better guardian by forcing him to do things himself. In truth, he had Knuckles under close observation the entire time he was "abandoned" and often expresses regret at causing his son so much grief, but he still insists he was only [[IDidWhatIHadToDo doing his job.]] However, Locke did get a considerable comeuppance, as his actions regarding Knuckles led to an echidna scientist going rogue and getting a considerable number of their race slaughtered.
** It may run in the family. In an early issue of Knuckles' spin off series, Knuckles talks to his mom about why the family broke apart. In the ensuing flashback, she talks to her mother in law about how she felt when Locke was taken away for guardian training. Said in law paused and only said that she'd be lost without her husband.

** Gary Richards. It's no wonder Reed turned out so mentally unstable with a dad [[BlatantLies as loving and supportive as this guy]]. Gary is from the first issue shown to be verbally and emotionally (if not physically) abusive toward Reed, having no interest or tolerance for Reed's tinkering, yelling at him from turning the phone into a device, then throwing it at Reed's dinner. A later issue suggests Gary was physically abusive as well. Thanos manages to torture Reed by conjuring an image of Gary prepared to beat him.
