** Mr. Sensitive of ''ComicBook/XStatix'' is a mutant with superhuman senses... unfortunately, his sense of touch is so acute that even the slightest injury can be debilitating.

*** Though, given that Rita had gained control of her powers by the time she joined up with the team, she doesn't really fit this. This is the most commonly cited reason for why she was never [[BackFromTheDead revived]] until long after her teammates were; her status as a "freak" is incredibly dubious in comparison to what Cliff and Larry have to go through. More recent incarnations of the character, however, firmly turn her into this: [[spoiler: Rita is revealed to essentially be a BlobMonster who has to constantly maintain her concentration or else she'll start to [[BodyHorror break down and melt]]. This has the side effect of making her walk around with [[StepfordSmiler a perpetual]] [[SlasherSmile creepy smile]] on her face.]]

* 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 Franchise/{{Superman}} focus his heat vision like a super-powered laser, which was able to do the job.

** 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.

*** Bullseye takes pills for it, when writers remember that property. Presumably, the other adamantium users that lack a healing factor do the same.

*** An often overlooked aspect of Cyclops's condition is that due to having to wear ruby quartz glasses to control his powers, he can only see everything in shades of red. In practice, he's completely colorblind.

* Rick Sheridan, from the 1990s MarvelComics series ''ComicBook/{{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...

** {{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.
