** There's a guy in one issue of ''ComicBook/UltimateXMen'' whose entire mutant power is the dissolution of all living tissue within a ridiculous distance of him. He kills 385 people the day he hits puberty, and has to be taken out discreetly by Wolverine because if his existence ever got out mutants would be rounded up and stuck in camps faster than you can say Franklin Richards.
*** It was touching in a way. Wolverine tracked him down in a cave and shared a few beers with him while listening.

* ''ComicBook/DungeonsAndDragons'' In Issue #6 Drey describes that Adric suffers a curse...the curse of being clever. This means he can always see a way out when everything seems lost, but it also means he can't save everyone, no matter how much he wants to.

** Gladstone Gander occasionally gets this treatment: one story dealt with him trying to solve the problem of his home being cluttered by all the things he's won, a few stories have other people showing disdain for him for being effectively a cheater or a freeloader who has everything fall into his lap without having to make any effort, and in ''ComicBook/{{Ultraheroes}}'' his superhero alter ego is ''massively'' unpopular, both with the fans of the team and his own teammates.

It has long since been established that Scrooge has struck Gladstone from his will because he has zero respect for someone who avoids doing any real work at every possibility.

** Superman himself had a similar problem. After [[ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman his fatal fight with Doomsday]], people kept trying to resuscitate him with zero luck: The Guardian tried mouth-to-mouth and realized his lungs were like trying to breathe into an iron lung, normal defibs did jack squat and a special set made by Professor Hamilton only blew Bibbo down the street when he tried to use it.

* In one story Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}} story, ComicBook/PowerGirl was dying and needed surgery to save her life. But doctors could not operate on her for a simple reason: Her bulletproof skin made it impossible. There was no scalpel or surgical laser they had that was capable of cutting through her skin. Fortunately the rest of the League thought of something: they had former Green Lantern Corps member Kilowog put together a helmet that let {{Superman}} focus his heat vision like a super-powered laser, which was able to do the job.

* In ''SupermanAndBatmanGenerations'', Joel Kent, after years of living without Kryptonian superpowers due to being prenatally exposed to Gold Kryptonite radiation, receives a formula from the Ultra-Humanite (posing as Lex Luthor) which gives him back his powers. Unfortunately, after using those powers to [[CainAndAbel kill his sister Kara]], Joel found out that the formula that gave him back his powers ended up killing him after a few hours' use, despite Ultra's original claim of the contrary - which turns out to be just what Ultra was expecting Joel to believe.

* Jukko Hamaleinen of ''StormWatch: Team Achilles'' has powers which cause him nothing but pain - he can feel the pain of every being within a 4 mile radius. This includes the people he beats up himself, including a mostly depowered [[ComicBook/TheAuthority Midnighter]] at one point. There isn't really ''any'' upside.
* {{Deadpool}} had terminal cancer so he turned to the Canadian government's Weapon X program for help. The good: He won't die of cancer. The bad: His cancer is now supercharged on HealingFactor and constantly destroys and rebuilds his ''entire body'', including his brain, leaving him with a face that... has the consistency and appearance of a hamburger patty, and made him just plain crazy, and very, very funny. At least his fans love him. Moral of the story? Canadian healthcare ain't all it's made out to be.

* Jessica Drew AKA SpiderWoman was one to get over this problem but initially, her powers caused accelerated aging, unwanted attraction due to pheromones and unjustified hatred because of those same pheromones.

*** That is to say, it's the reason why he's an ''insane'' supervillain, and not the reason for the villainy itself. Maximus was already a dick. Incidentally, the aforementioned incident was Maximus collaborating with the Kree - the very aliens who were responsible for their existence - to attack Attilan, in a scheme to get Black Bolt in trouble, and for him to step out of his shadow. Black Bolt used his hyper-sonic scream to down their flagship, and Maximus just happened to be nearby when it happened. BB may feel guilt about it, especially because their parents were caught when the ship crashed into the parliament building [[LaserGuidedKarma but for Maximus, it really was just desserts]].

* Rick Sheridan, from the 1990s MarvelComics series ''{{Sleepwalker}}'' ends up having to share his head with the titular alien hero, who can only come out when Rick sleeps. Sleepy's presence causes no end of trouble for Rick in his social life, up to and including putting Rick in a coma when Sleepwalker tries to force his way out while Rick is still awake. At least Peter Parker got some cool powers to balance things out...

* Anyone infected with the Beauty Virus in ''ComicBook/Beauty'' becomes thin, beautiful, and literally radiant. They can eat as much as they want and all they feel is a slightly feverish feeling. Unfortunately, they live a year or two before they blow up.
