* Mikey Rhodes, the VillainProtagonist in ''{{ComicBook/Birthright}}''. He serves as vessel to [[EldritchAbomination a demonic entity]] [[OmnicidalManiac bent on merging Earth with the dimension where it came from]]. However, his backstory is very sympathetic: he was originally the ChosenOne destined to Lore (said demonic entity), and was taken to that dimension to fight the war. [[ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne Having a responsibility that he never asked for being forced on him]], as well [[ShellShockedVeteran as witnessing many horrors from the war]] and being separated from his family pushed him to become a FallenHero and [[DealWithTheDevil make a deal with Lore]] to return home. He loves his family and he doesn't want their world destroyed, but he has no choice in the matter, [[DemonicPossession since Lore is inside his body]], therefore he has to obey him.

* Franchise/{{Superman}} enters this territory in ''ComicBook/SupermanRedSon''. As a leader of the USSR, he is a huge threat to the US and ends up ruling huge portions of the world population. But he still retains most of his heroic qualities, is attempting to create a utopia, and is very reluctant to actually do wrong. This is opposed to SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor, an AntiHero who is America's only hope, but also a Machiavellian egotist; he doesn't actually care what happens to America, just as long as he can get one over on Superman.

* DrDoom, arch enemy of the ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'', has been known to defend his actions on this basis from time to time, especially in regards to his iron-fisted rule over his [[{{Ruritania}} small Eastern European homeland]] Latveria. Considering Doom showed the Four the apocalyptic mess that the insane Prince Zorba made of the land after he took the throne, the Four were forced to agree that Doom would be preferable and help him retake the throne after Zorba orders a murderous purge of the population to thwart his predecessor. The Four would have been more than willing to immediately take down Doom afterward if he hadn't installed mental inhibitors in them to force them to leave instead.

* The ''{{Sleepwalker}}'' villain Spectra is first seen planning to steal a valuable synthetic diamond and sell it for drug money, until the diamond becomes involved in a FreakLabAccident that imbues her with its light-based energies and gives her superpowers. While she initially seems poised to become a supervillain, she has apparently had a change of heart by the time Sleepwalker runs into her again, having taken to [[CutLexLuthoraCheck using her light-projecting powers to make an honest living]], and only intervening to stop Sleepwalker when she thought he was a villain. Once the misunderstanding was sorted out, Spectra later helped Sleepwalker defeat the AxCrazy Psyko.

* [[SubMariner Namor]] goes between this and AntiHero, sometimes in the same book. Sometimes in the same ''panel.'' Most (if not all) of the villain side comes from his loyalty to Atlantis above all.

* Circuit Breaker in the {{Marvel}} ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformers Transformers Generation 1]]'' comic. She hates all robots equally, regardless of faction, but given her origin, that's understandable. Megatron also tends to feign cooperation with the Autobots purely to make people think the Autobots are also evil, furthering Circuit Breaker's hatred. Also, she is shown to genuinely want to protect other humans, repeatedly risking her own life and being severely damaged to save an innocent bystander.
