* New character Greymalkin from ''Young Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' has this as his origin story. He was buried alive by his abusive father roughly 200 years ago. The trauma caused his [[{{Mutants}} mutant]] powers to appear, and it just so happens said powers are superstrength and invincibility except in total darkness. The poor guy was buried alive, immobile, for 200 years until he was freed. Beast comments that it's amazing he kept his sanity.

* ComicBook/NewMutants: How do you deal with a sadistic [[BlondesAreEvil evil blonde]] that can control people with her voice? [[spoiler: Simple. Use dark magic to completely remove her mouth, reducing her to a broken, weeping mess.]] Do not mess with Doug Ramsey. Seriously.

* A stand-alone comic in the magazine ''Fantomen'' featured a young man who somehow finds out exactly when he will die. As it's far into the future (he'd be about a hundred years old), he starts partaking in high risk sports and generally taking extreme risks. He ends up in a hospital bed, his entire body broken beyond healing... all too aware that he'll stay that way for ''decades'', with nothing to do but count the seconds.

* A stand-alone comic in the magazine ''Fantomen'' featured a young man who somehow comes into possession of a watch that shows what time you will die down to the second, after its original owner is killed right on time. When the man finds out exactly when he will die. As it's far that his own date of death is decades into the future (he'd be about a hundred years old), in his early 90's), he starts partaking embarks on a career as a daredevil, confident in high risk sports the knowledge that he cant die before his time. However, his careless stunts causes several fatalities, and generally taking extreme risks. He a revenge-driven widower attacks him with a grenade, which ends up blowing off his limbs and renders him blind and mute, leaving him helpless, blind and immovable in a hospital bed, his entire body broken beyond healing... all too aware that he'll stay that way for ''decades'', bed with nothing to do but count the seconds.seconds for the rest of his life. To drive the irony in further, one of his doctors picks up the watch and his time turns out to be the next day at midnight, but the doctor has no idea of the clocks power.

Added DiffLines:

** The Queen of Fables was a villain who had formerly been trapped in a book of fairy tales, and could reshape reality to her whims using the same tales and other imaginative fantasy, turning Manhattan into an enchanted forest and cursing Wonder Woman with a thousand-year slumber. Wonder Woman recovered, however, and did away with the Queen by trapping her in a ''very'' different book, the U.S. Tax Code! (The idea was that she'd never find anything to use as a weapon in there, but no doubt she was ''not'' very happy.)

** Larfleeze, aka Agent Orange, gains his constructs by killing people. It's implied, and later confirmed that they're not just constructs in the victim's likeness, but their souls forced to do Larfleeze's bidding.

* TheFlash exacted revenge on teenage supervillain Inertia (the killer and clone of the previous Flash, this Flash's cousin) by essentially turning him into a living statue, putting him on display in the Flash Museum facing a statue of the Flash he killed. Inertia is still perfectly conscious and aware, and is unable to even close his eyes. Eventually, he recovered, although it's made him rather AxCrazy. Wally also ''unintentionally'' did this to [[EvilCounterpart Zoom]], believing that Zoom was just in suspended animation, not [[FateWorseThanDeath fully conscious and constantly reliving the worst moment of his life]]:

* In ''The ComicBook/UncannyXMen'', Doctor Doom once turned {{Storm}} into an organic chrome statue. She could not move but could still think. This turned into a case of UnstoppableRage because she is severely claustrophobic, and being unable to move made her completely insane. And her mutant powers were still working, so the claustrophobia manifested as a deadly storm overhead. Which expanded until it was a hurricane covering roughly half the planet. (By that point, even after Storm was freed, it was too large for her to control.)
