** {{Ultimate Marvel}}'s version is arguably worse off. On the one hand, he doesn't need the armor to support his heart like the mainstream Tony Stark does, and he has genuine SuperIntelligence plus a HealingFactor because of having "undifferentiated neural tissue" scattered throughout his body. The downside of this? ''Pain''. He's in perpetual agony; even when hovering on a blood alcohol level that would leave an ordinary man insensible ''and'' wearing a special bio-suit that was created to block out the pain, he's still constantly suffering.

* The adamantium that makes ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'s skeleton unbreakable and makes his claws even deadlier is also toxic. Wolverine would never have survived the adamantium infusion if it weren't for his HealingFactor. Another drawback is that his HealingFactor is weakened due to needing to work overtime to compensate for the adamantium poisoning. Having a metal skeleton also makes him a pretty poor opponent against on and off BigBad Magneto. This was graphically demonstrated in the ''Fatal Attractions'' arc (specifically ''X-Men'' vol. 2 #25) when Magneto ''ripped off the adamantium'' from Wolverine's bones, nearly killing him. [[spoiler: In UltimateMarvel, Magneto ''did'' kill Wolverine this way in ''Ultimatum''.]]

* The miniseries ''Worst X-Man Ever'' is about a boy who learns that he has the powers to explode, without any of the RequiredSecondaryPowers that allow him to survive said explosion, meaning he just has the power to die and kill people around him on command.

* Tony Chu of ''ComicBook/{{Chew}}'' has cibopathy. This is a form of PsychicPowers where he can see things relating to the past of anything he tastes; he can also absorb skills and knowledge by eating flesh or drinking blood from other human beings. What makes this suck? First and foremost, he can't turn it off -- and a lot of the visions he gets are pretty damn gross (just imagine eating a burger and getting ''all memories of the cow, that went into said burger''). Secondly, the only thing he can eat that doesn't trigger his cibopathy is beets... and he doesn't even ''like'' beets. Finally, his powers, combined with his {{jerkass}} boss, means he has to eat a lot of stuff that is inherently gross. Like corpses, dead animals, poop...

* In ''ComicBook/{{Thor 2014}}'', Jane Foster proves worthy of Mjolnir and gains the power of Thor. Unfortunately, every time she transforms, all poisons are purged from her body, including the chemotherapy drugs she needs for her cancer. If she keeps transforming, she's eventually going to die, but she doesn't let that stop her.

** His sister, Sage Chu is cipropanthropatic - person, who can read memories of anyone nearby, who is eating same thing, as she does. Naturally she can't turn it off and constantly suffers from AMindIsaTerribleThingToRead, which forces her to eat bizarre food to insure, that no one around eats the same thing.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Comicbook/KryptoniteNevermore'' shows that Superman's powers make him the world's greatest hero. His powers also set him apart from everyone else, make him feel an outcast and burden him with immense responsibilities that no sane person would want.

* Franchise/{{Superman}}'s cousin ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' also sees her powers as a burden. Pre-Crisis Kara came to a point where she was tired of being Supergirl constantly instead of being her own person and she actually felt guilty for wanting to lead a normal life. Post-Crisis, a lot of people tried to manipulate her or take advantage of her because she was so powerful, to the point she calls her formidable powers a curse in the ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' arc:
-->'''Supergirl:''' This strength, this power It's been like a curse. But I refuse to be a victim anymore!
