** 'ComicBook/UltimateXMen'' has a heart-breaking example: a child whose entire mutant power is the dissolution of all living tissue within a ridiculous distance of him. When he wakes up and discovers his power has activated, the first sight are the corpses of his family and friends. He kills 385 people the day he hits puberty. In order to prevent the spread of widescale panic and revelation of mutnats in such a way, Wolverine is sent to kill him. His regeneration powers protect him, but the whole ordeal is hreatbreaking as Wolverine is pretty much performing a MercyKill on him.

** Skin's mutation is that he has six feet of extra skin. Sure, he can manipulate it and that does have its uses, but he's otherwise stuck looking like a mix between a melted candle and a bulldog.

** In ''ComicBook/{{Bizarrogirl}}'', Supergirl regards her powers as a dangerous burden due to her inability to save ComicBook/NewKrypton.
--->'''Lana:''' You're telling me you're not even going to go look? At all? What if someone needs your help? What if someone's hurt? Look around, Kara. People out there need you. You can use your gifts to --\\
'''Kara:''' "Gifts"? These "gifts" make a target, Lana. They make me dangerous to everyone around me. And as you'll recall, the last time I tried to help someone, I got a planet full of my people blown up --
** In that same story, Kara’s super-senses can hear everything from anywhere. So she has to get her room soundproofed in order to be able to sleep.
--->'''Supergirl:''' Not long ago, I installed mass-loaded vinyl throughout the walls of my room. Having Super-Hearing was keeping me awake at night. I couldn't escape the noise.

* A similar interpretation to Flash example in Dc section is ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}}, who once told a psychiatrist they would be short-tempered too if everyone else was like that one slow person in the checkout line.

* ''ComicBook/{{Uber}}'': The titular super-soldiers are nine-foot tall [[TheJuggernaut juggernauts of superhuman strength]] and [[PersonOfMassDestruction living weapons of mass destruction]], but it comes with a price: being bullet-proof means anything capable of damaging them will be impossible to treat afterwards since they are immune to anesthetics and can survive even the most [[BodyHorror horrific injuries]] like having half their head blown up or being turned from inside out - the former ''only'' died due to massive blood loss caused by a unrelated ADeathOfThousandCuts and the latter required a ''industrial drill'' to [[MercyKill euthanize him]], since he was still alive even after his heart and lungs were destroyed.

* Max Damage from ''ComicBook/{{Incorruptible}}'' (and ComicBook/{{Irredeemable}}'', they're sister series, with ''Incorruptible'' being focused on Max) is super strong and extremely resistant to damage. However, this also makes him unable to feel anything. He gets stronger and tougher the longer he's awake, but it resets back to the normal human baseline if he sleeps. If he wants to have sex, or even ''shave'', he's got to do it within the first few minutes after he wakes up. He's also vulnerable to his enemies while he's powering back up, and one of his enemies is a godlike (and ''murderously insane'' when the story starts, though we do see flashbacks to his saner days) Superman expy called the Plutonian. To be able to stand up to Tony, Max tends to stay awake for days at a stretch, making him exactly as cheerful as you'd expect such a person to be.

** The Plutonian himself from the same pair of series (he's the central character in ''Irredeemable'') is a human-in-appearance alien who started off as a hero and snapped one day because the Lois Lane expy was emphatically ''not'' okay with being lied to all those years and outed his secret identity. Also, his foster parents had all been abusive and/or terrified and dumped him back at the orphanage when his powers started to develop. So ... basically Superman (see above for ''his'' problems), minus the emotional support of Lois and the Kents.
