**
In ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}: the post-Crisis universe, Kara spent thirty years in suspended animation, curled-up in a tiny pod and trapped in Kryptonite which hurt her and poisoned her mind.
** In the New 52, after capturing Kara, Tycho held her in a stasis beam near from a chunk of kryptonite. She was in incredible pain but she couldn't scream or even move.
--->'''Kara:''' Kryptonyte. a radioactive element lethal to the touch. Just being close to it -- like I'm being held now -- can be fatal. I'm screaming, but no sound comes out. I'm crying, but there are no tears. My skin is burning off, but there are no flames. All there is... All I am now... is the pain.
** In ''Supergirl:
Cosmic Adventures In The Eight Grade'', super-villain Belinda Zee is turned into a crystal statue. She cannot talk or move but she is fully sentient and -worst of all- she can feel pain.

* This happened to TheJuggernaut at the end of ''Amazing Spider-Man #230'', when Franchise/SpiderMan buried him in tons of concrete.
* In ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' comics of UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}, the original version of the Phantom Zone fell into this trope. Phantom Zone prisoners couldn't even touch each other; they were condemned just to watch the material world until their sentences expired.

** In ''ComicBook/TheKingdom'', Superman in one of his many deaths at the hands of Gog was subject to being slowly transformed into Kryptonite after being chained to a planet with a special bomb attached to it that would recreate the destruction of Krypton.
** In ''Superman Vol 1 #282'', Superman tells the tale of a Kryptonian named Nam-Ek (yes, that is his name. And this story was written ten years before the birth of the Franchise/DragonBall franchise) who managed to make himself immortal and indestructible. When Krypton exploded, he survived, and remained floating in lifeless space, alone forever.
--->'''Superman:''' Slowly, Nam-Ek realized that since he was immortal... he would remain there, suspended in space -- alone -- forever! And that's when he began to cry... And they say that somewhere in space... he is crying still...

* ComicBook/DoctorStrange isn't above inflicting this on his enemies. An amateur sorcerer sends his remote projection to blackmail Strange into giving up his chokehold on mystical knowledge, and Strange initially acquiesces. When the sorcerer projects himself again to reap his reward, his astral form is trapped in a small jar from which he can't escape. Strange places him among rows of identical jars and walks away from the sorcerer's panicked screaming.
** A professional thief shoots Dr. Strange and ransacks his home. When Strange catches up with the thief, he punishes him by trapping his physical body inside his own mind.

* This happened to Thanos in one of the classic MarvelUniverse storylines.



* ''ComicBook/TheSandman'''s sister Delirium condemns one man to forever feel the sensation of insects crawling all over his skin. He's seen later strapped to a bed in an asylum, not daring to scream because he does not want the spiders he can feel crawling on his lips to fall in. What makes all of this worse is this isn't some sociopathic baddy that the series generally has in spades; it's just a random traffic cop who was [[DisproportionateRetribution unfortunate enough]] to be the one to pull Delirium over.
