* [[ComicBook/RobinSeries Tim Drake's]] (aka Franchise/{{Batman}}'s sidekick Robin) grown up a bit, but he's always been a huge geek and when he was younger was pretty unsure of how to act around girls. But he's still seen as pretty cute, and does end up getting an awful lot of girls.
** His adopted sister, [[ComicBook/Batgirl2000 Cassandra Cain]], the third Batgirl, is incredibly socially awkward, started off as a CuteMute, and is occasionally SarcasmBlind. Though she is capable of speaking now, she still stutters a lot, [[{{Malaproper}} often uses the wrong words]], and frequently quotes movies and tv shows.

* Comicbook/{{X 23}}, of all people, in ''Comicbook/AllNewXMen'' #30. While at a club with teenage Warren, they get into a brawl with some punks who take exception to Warren's wings. During the fight one of them grabs Laura by the hair and she reflexively turns on him with her claws out. When Warren stops her with a hand on her arm, the [[http://wyrmfyrforge.net/Images/X23Goofy.png sheepish grin she gives him]] as she puts them away is positively adorable. Later, she and Warren have a heart-to-heart where for a brief moment Laura becomes just an awkward teenage girl wondering what a guy likes about her.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Blondie}}'': Dagwood Bumstead could be easily the poster boy for this trope -- He is not only rather nerdy, but also extremely lazy and awkward. To top it all, his wardrobe is still stuck in the ''1930s'', bowtie and all (although he has stopped wearing hats).

* ''ComicBook/TransformersLastStandOfTheWreckers'' has Ironfist, a [[BadassCrew Wreckers]] {{Fanboy}}, GadgeteerGenius, and an ''enormous'' nerd who [[AscendedFanboy is invited to join the team he idolizes]]. [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee Enthusiastic]] and [[TheSmartGuy knowledgeable]] but also [[NaiveNewcomer naive and unprepared]] for the horrors of being a Wrecker, he's a NiceGuy and a giant robot ManChild who is nonetheless one of the most popular characters in the miniseries for ''being'' dorky and awkward, rather than in spite of it.

** Clark Kent, more so PostCrisis (where his moderate dorkiness is natural) than pre-ComicBook/{{Crisis|on Infinite Earths}} (when his extreme dorkiness was just a facade).

%% * ComicBook/SquirrelGirl takes this trope UpToEleven.UpToEleven. Lampashaded in ''VideoGame/MarvelHeroes''. Her bio says:
-->"You'd think that young Doreen Green's mutant power was Super-Adorability, but her abilities go far beyond simple cuteness. Her semi-prehensile tail allows her to display amazing feats of agility...well, yeah, that tail IS pretty adorable. How about the empathic bond she shares with squirrels? That's a good power! But, yeah, it's also kind of adorable."
