* 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.

* In the ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' story arc "The Day The Law Died," [[TheCaligula Judge Cal's]] method of getting rid of the "worry wrinkles" of his closest aide, Judge Slocum, involved injecting Slocum with a paralyzing agent and, while he's still conscious, [[FingerForcedSmile molding a permanent wide grin on his face]] before dropping him in a sealed vat of vinegar for preservation... and the whole time we get to read Slocum's thoughts of sheer horror being beset on him while seeing him with such a stupid, big smile on his face.
* ''ComicBook/AndersonPsiDivision'':
** The traiterous [[spoiler:Judge Fauster]] unleashes the Half-Life virus on Mega-City One so he can get access to immortality. After he's arrested for causing over a million deaths, he gloats that he'll still be there when the city has crumbled into dust. As punishment Chief Hershey orders him locked up for eternity and his mind placed in a computer-induced nightmare.
** Some poor sap is used this way by the Sisters of Death to create a bridge to Mega City One. His body is already dead but thanks to a nearby psychic amplifier his ''mind is still active'', trapped inside it as he's tied to a cross with barb wire.

* ** ''ComicBook/ThargsFutureShocks'': A pair of art thieves visit a gallery to find the most valuable piece to steal. They settle on a weird painting which is contained behind very thick bars. They saw through the bars to get at it, but instantly disappear.

The thieves are seen being tortured in Hell inside the painting.

* Happens to [[spoiler: Comicbook/{{Daredevil}} archenemy Bullseye. Let's see...a demonically possessed Daredevil kills the guy in the ''Shadowlands'' story arc. Lady Bullseye manages to resurrect him, but he's completely paralyzed, has lost all his senses except his eyesight, and needs to be placed in an iron lung. Bullseye comes up with a rather elaborate plot to torment Daredevil and ultimately kill him. He fails and in the process loses his sense of sight. One of the most vicious, psychotic, and frightening villains in the Marvel Universe is now, in the words of Daredevil, "a living brain in a flesh and bone coffin."]]
