* ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'': The Shadowplay arc was a flashback arc dedicated to bringing Rung out of a coma by trying to get him to remember. It has Optimus (then Orion), Ratchet, Windcharger, Skids and one of the few good Senators all coming together to stop a malicious plot by the senate to kill a bunch of innocents and frame the, then innocent, worker's party. It succeeds, they retrieve the bomb, and save everyone. However they can't find any evidence connecting the senate to the bomb spree, the Senator is [[PunishedForSympathy taken away]], and Optimus befriends Zeta, who would grow up to be another tyrant. The arc concludes with Rung waking up in the present while the senator [[spoiler: had the titular Shadowplay performed on him turning him into the emotionless MadScientist Shockwave who's schemes would come to threaten the whole of the planet.]]

* ''ComicBook/{{Crimson}}'' ended with [[BigBad Lisseth]] being defeated and her apocalypse prevented. However, untold innocents perished during the dragon attacks around the world and two of the hero's companions (one of them being his love interest) pulled a HeroicSacrifice during the final battle. The hero remained a vampire at the end after fulfilling his purpose, so he is forced to leave his loved ones behind (his father becomes a US senator, while his other love interest joins a convent) so he can embark on [[AndTheAdventureContinues a new quest to become human again and return to them]].

* In ''ComicBook/DeepGravity'', the planet Poseidon is toxic to humans who stay too long, and personnel are therefore rotated through it rather than permanently stationed there. The freighter ''Vanguard'' is conducting one of these rotations, and when it's destroyed, a few survivors escape down to the planet. Most are newcomers, but one of the survivors is [[spoiler:Michelle]], who was among the group who had already had their maximum safe exposure and needed to ''leave''. It's left open whether or not Poseidon's slow poisoning will prove fatal before another ship arrives, but it doesn't look good.
