* ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'': The premise of ''The Visible Man'' is of an ex-soldier who gains partial {{Invisibility}} from a freak accident involving [[ILoveNuclearPower nuclear waste]] so that all his internal organs are showing. People shriek in terror at the mere sight of him.

* The original ''ComicBook/OmegaMen'' series had Kalista get mind-raped by an organism which did so by stealing her shape and memories, leaving her an unrecognisable blob. While this is happening, she starts losing her shape, then her features, then her ability to perceive things, then the ability to ''think''. It's horrifying, and it doesn't help that she begs for it to stop the entire time.

* Doppelganger, a villainess introduced in Issue 1 of ''ComicBook/GreenArrow: The Midas Touch'' (Volume 5 of his solo line and the first of the ComicBook/{{New 52}} reboot), is presumably a shapeshifter. Within panels of her first appearance, she [[HulkingOut hulks out]], [[GrowingMusclesSequence bulking up]] and [[ClothingDamage shredding a good portion of her]] [[LittleBlackDress slinky black dress]]. Any {{fanservice}} [[AmazonianBeauty this might have been played for]] [[FanDisservice is immediately thrown out the window]] as she not only grows [[MultiArmedAndDangerous an extra set of arms]], but ''[[MultipleHeadCase a second face]]'' (still stuck to the first one as if it were a {{conjoined twin|s}}) and breaks out into [[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/scale_small/10/107028/1998771-doppelganger.jpg warts]]. Appropriately so, Ollie quips that she's making him nauseated and her accomplice Supercharge refers to her as a freak when Dynamix (the third member of their villainous trio) wonders where she's been taken after they've all been incarcerated.

* In the ComicBook/{{Warrior}} mini-series, titular character Ultimate Warrior rips the skin off his opponents' chests, which he turns into armbands to wrap around his arms. Lightning then strikes the Warrior, giving him face-paint, and new pants. One video blog reviewer states [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dY2oFfo8SNg "There are only so many ways that I can say, what the [expletive] people!"]]

* In Comicbook/{{Enigma}}, several comic book villains come to life... as more horrifying, mutated versions of their more light-hearted comic forms. And each of them starts out as a normal human. Granted, they're not all terrible, but the first guy got it pretty bad. [[spoiler:And then there's the Enigma's own mother, who does this to herself in a fit of apparent insanity, and takes it up to eleven.]]

* ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye introduces Empurata, a technique employed by the old and corrupt Senate. Basically, they have the head and hands of the victim removed and replaced with boxy cycloptic heads and claws or clamps for the hands. A few of the big named characters suffered this, notably Whirl [[spoiler: and Shockwave.]]
* ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW'' of all things does this when a trio of unicorns swipe Rainbow Dash's wings as part of a ploy to grow their own. We don't see the act, of course, but there are ''[[https://derpiboo.ru/1079220 stitch marks]]''. [[WebOriginal/NostalgiaCritic You know, for kids!]]

* There is an 80s issue of CaptainAmerica vs Batroc, where the U.S. Agent side-story in the latter part featured a guy who appeared to be undergoing extreme steroid enhancement(to the point that he was paralyzed due to his muscles expanding too much to allow movement).

*The Post-Crisis Superman story that introduced Hank "Cyborg" Henshaw, which is basically a riff on Marvel's Fantastic Four, is loaded with this. Four NASA shuttle crew members encounter a type of radiation and suffer bodily mutations. One of them, as an example, has his body reformed into a mass of rock (a la the Thing) only with pieces of the shuttle mixed in. The pain drives him to commit suicide by way of an MRI machine, which rips him apart.

** Ben Grimm has stone skin, and it's apparently a miracle that he can even breath.
** Reed Richardís transformation removed most, if not all, of his internal organs.

* Oftentimes characters who are effectively immortal or have "healing factors" will venture into this territory. The ''ComicBook/UltimateXMen'' version of Wolverine has been subjected to such horrors as regrowing his entire body after being decapitated and having the flesh stripped entirely off his bones but still being alive. Orson Scott Card's "Ultimate Iron Man" gives Tony Stark similar powers (for some reason) and has many creepy scenes of him regrowing his various severed limbs (which he loses so often, it becomes a running joke). In a particularly strange example, TheSavageDragon had the mood spoiled during sex when he and his girlfriend are horrified by the sight of his severed arm suddenly and unexpectedly regenerating in a gruesome fashion.

* In Warren Ellis' writing of {{Stormwatch}}, the Island of Gamora launched a watered-down superhuman mutagen upon an English town. Most victims were rendered as horiffically mutated corpses. The unfortunate surivors were fused into a giant mass of flesh whose hands were fused together in a shape similar to that tubular seaform known as a lamprey.
