* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': Emperor Haghendorf is already an old man by the time of the main storyline, but he remains as always a FourStarBadass who commands the imperial armies against all its enemies, has his personal brigade of war dragons, and is still one of the best swordsmen in the world. AuthorityEqualsAsskicking indeed.

* The Franchise/{{Superman}} from ComicBook/KingdomCome. He is out of shape, has grey hair, and wrinkles, but when he crossed over into the {{DCU}}, he takes a punch from Heracles ''without flinching'', and can move normally in a 100 G environment. Heracles earlier knocked our Superman through a building and bloodied his nose.

** Whatever else [[{{Jerkass}} you might say about him]], General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross has always been this, even before becoming the ComicBook/{{Red Hulk}}. For most of his history he was an [[BadassNormal unpowered human]] who had no problem leading his troops into battle against the Hulk personally, or telling off the Hulk to his face. Then he agreed to be merged with the [[ShockAndAwe electrical monster ZZZAX]] and gained superpowers so he could fight the Hulk directly, wound up [[HeroicSacrifice dying]] saving his [[PapaWolf daughter's life]], and then later came {{Back From The Dead}}. As Ross, he has the body of a man half his age and over 50 years' worth of experience as a soldier. As Red Hulk, he's among Marvel's top-tier superhumans (Bruce Banner once rated him as possibly "second only to me") [[spoiler:until the "Doc Green" Hulk forcibly depowers him]].

** Two more Batmen who meet this trope. The first is the Batman from ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'', who, despite having wrecked his body through years of abuse and being dependent on an exoskeleton just to move, still has the balls to deck [[spoiler:a brainwashed [[Comicbook/{{Shazam}} Billy Batson]], whom everyone else is [[TheDreaded shit-scared of]] ]] ''on a hunch''. He later joins in the climatic fight scene in {{Powered Armour}}. The other is [[spoiler:Thomas Wayne, Bruce's father]], as seen in ''ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}}'', in the alternate time where [[spoiler:Bruce died instead of his parents that night in Crime Alley.]] He has nowhere near [[spoiler:his son's]] training, skill, or discipline, and is running on pain and rage, but he can still toss around criminals decades younger than him, and [[spoiler:kills not only Killer Croc, but also the [[BigBad Reserve Flash]]. By [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaling them]], no less. Yikes. ]]

* ''ComicBook/{{Bone}}'' Lucius Down.

to:

* ''ComicBook/{{Bone}}'' ''ComicBook/{{Bone}}:'' Supporting character Lucius Down.Down, the aged innkeeper of the Barrelhaven, was once the captain of the royal guard. Outside the royal family, who have certain supernatural advantages, he's probably the toughest human character in the series.



** And then ''ComicBook/{{Nextwave}}'' gave us his parody CaptainErsatz Dirk Anger, who is a subversion in the WhoWantsToLiveForever vein:
