** Don't ever mention the [[UndefeatableLittleVillage Gaulish Village]] that still holds out against the invaders (or its invincible occupants) in front of Julius Caesar. You will find yourself in the circus - and given [[AncientRome the time period]], that ''[[BloodSport doesn't]]'' [[CircusOfFear mean]] [[GladiatorGames trapezes and clowns]].

** One story actually deconstructed the "kill a couple in front of their young child" button. Batman was pursuing a criminal named Angel Lupo for murdering his pregnant sister. While on the run, Lupo shot and killed a couple in front of their son leaving the boy in a state of shock. Batman has the usual flashback and is bent on bringing Lupo to justice. Then it's revealed that [[spoiler: Angel had nothing to do with the first murder. His ''girlfriend'' (without his knowledge) had his sister killed in order to free him of the responsibility of caring for his sister. Not that it matters, since the baby's father (the ''Ventriloquist'') guns down Lupo in a fit of misdirected vengeance.]] Then it turns out that [[spoiler: Lupo didn't kill the boy's parents either -- the ''boy'' shot and killed his own parents and Lupo just happened to be nearby when it happened. Batman's Berserk Button made him pursue a man who, while still a career criminal, didn't commit any of the murders in the story and led him astray from the real killers.]]

** Also? Please do not pull a gun on him while he is visiting Crime Alley, where the aforementioned parental murder took place. He will not have mercy on you.
** It is ''not'' a good idea to threaten children around him, especially if said child happens to be one of his sidekicks.

** And whatever you do, don't tell him that someone else was closer to killing Batman than he ever had.

* Speaking of the ComicBook/SecretSix, don't bring up Scandal Savage's [[ComicBook/VandalSavage dad]] or do anything to remind her of him. ''Just don't do it''. You'll be ''very'' lucky to still be in one piece if you make him enter her mind. Actually, that's probably the easiest way to piss Scandal off, given that she is definitely the most AxCrazy of the team and has a ridiculously short fuse, and being insane.

* [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk The Hulk]] is generally a [[TheBerserker Berserker]] anyway, but anything or anyone that reminds him of his father is definitely in for a world of hurt.

* If you really want to earn [[ComicBook/IronMan Iron Man's]] wrath, steal his technology. If you want to multiply that wrath tenfold, use it for evil purposes, including harming people. The "Armor Wars" storyline is a good illustration of [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown what he will do]] if he even ''thinks'' you've misappropriated his tech, and neither enemies nor ''allies'' are safe.

** The recent ''ComicBook/NewAvengers'' issue added one more for Spider-Woman: Subject her into mind control or anything like that and she'll gladly put her hand inside your mouth and BLAST it from the inside. In fact, this pissed her off so much that if it wasn't for Spider-Man stopping her, she would've killed her mind controller.

*** Most notably, when confronted by former members of her ex-pimp's gang who are continuing to traffic women, Laura goes berserk taking them down. ComicBook/BlackWidow immediately comments afterwards that Laura is normally a very collected and deliberate fighter, but this time she was fighting out of pure rage. In fact, despite having [[Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} her daddy's]] temper, it's the ''only'' time she's ever been pushed so far past the RageBreakingPoint that she's slipped into a acting out of a true, blind rage.

* In ''ComicBook/AtomicRobo'', Jenkins is usually professional, but he has a few. One, don't bring him paperwork. Two, don't kill his orchid. Three, if you so much as ''suggest'' that Robo isn't a person, it may not go well for you.
