* Marv from ''SinCity'' is like this to the girls at Kadie's Bar, especially Nancy. Granted, it's due to his enormous chivalry, but given his age and the ages of most of the dancers, I say it counts. He mentions one moment when a frat boy roughed up Nancy, which hit his BerserkButton about hitting women in general, and he "straightened him out but good," mentioning that he maybe went a little too far (implying that the other guy didn't survive). There's also the short yarn "Silent Night," where Marv [[spoiler:hears about a mother asking after her missing daughter, then hunts down and kills her abductors (who had been planning to sell the poor girl for sex) and [[PetTheDog cradles the terrified child in his arms]] in a rare tender moment before taking her home]].

* Nathaniel Christopher Summers aka ComicBook/{{Cable}}, after adopting Hope Summers, is this nowadays, and a rather good one too. Hard to believe he used to be an amoral [[RobLiefeld Liefeld]] character.

* Volstagg in TheMightyThor. Harm, or even threaten, any of his children, biological or adopted, and he will come down on you like the wrath of the angry god he is. IT doesn't need to be his kid either, he'll take you out for harming ''any'' child near him.

* A rather twisted example would be {{Sinestro}}. Harm his daughter, [[spoiler:Soranik Natu]], and you will have the wrath of the entire Sinestro Corps bearing down on you and your entire planet, as the [[spoiler:Weaponer of Qward]] learned. Being Sinestro, this happens after he lets his daughter's boyfriend, [[spoiler:Kyle Rayner]], fail in a rescue attempt first just to show her how unworthy he is.

* Scandal Savage and Bane of ''ComicBook/SecretSix'' have something of a father-daughter relationship, with Scandal's biological father being... well, [[ManipulativeBastard Vandal]] [[MagnificentBastard Savage]] and Bane being a GeniusBruiser when not on his venom, and it seems the one surefire way to get Bane to ''use'' said venom again is to put Scandal in danger, at which point anyone who happens to be in the way gets to experience what the Franchise/{{Batman}} went through in ''{{Knightfall}}'' -- that is, a broken back.

* In ''{{ComicBook/Violine}}'', her father Francois certainly qualifies as this, traveling Africa for years in search of her mother.

* LukeCageHeroForHire: ComicBook/NormanOsborn learned the hard way to not endanger Luke Cage's girlfriend (now wife) [[ComicBook/JessicaJones Jessica]] and their (then unborn) daughter - Luke beat the tar out of him in public, not caring if his already revealed identity took a nosedive in regards to reputation.

* [[{{Spider-Man}} Peter Parker]] has his moments in ComicBook/{{Spider-Girl}}. Sure, he may be [[RetiredBadass retired]] and [[HandicappedBadass missing a leg]], but you shouldn't mess with his kids.

** Every incarnation of Peter Parker has this to some extent.... Granted, most versions don't have children, but they all have a big blinking button somewhere in their psyche labeled 'someone hurt my loved ones', and the majority of the New York underworld can tell when some idiot has pressed it.
*** Hint: the reason the motor-mouthed superhero hasn't talked in the last sixty seconds is because he's using all his superior intellect and enhanced nerve conduction velocity (IE: ability to think faster than normal) to consider the merits of the 6,000 different ways he intends to hurt you.

** Later, after ''ComicBook/DarkReign'', Cage's ComicBook/NewAvengers took on Norman's new DarkAvengers. Norman was savvy enough to invoke this trope beforehand, knowing it would anger Cage into [[UnstoppableRage doing something impulsive]] (and make Norman appear to be defending himself from a ScaryBlackMan).
