* ''ComicBook/SheHulk'' suffers from a ridiculous case of this, given the relatively small size of her following. It all revolves around the different approaches that have been taken to the character. Opinion divides between those that favor the original Savage incarnation, the 4th wall breaking ''Sensational'' equivalent conceived by Byrne, the wacky Dan Slott version and the more serious and action orientated PAD version - not to mention the people that consider her transformation to be FetishFuel and generally, there is to be no quarter given when it comes to this... And the naming of Lyra (the daughter of Thundra and the Hulk) as the new Savage She-Hulk created a mass case of knotted panties.

** Speaking of Creator/GrantMorrison, his run on ''ComicBook/NewXMen'' is probably the most polarizing series for X-Men fans as some fans claim that it was a fantastic series that changed the status quo of the X-Men while the other half didn't like the way that Cyclops and Jean Grey's relationship was being portrayed and the fact that [[spoiler: Xorn is revealed to be Magneto]] didn't go over well with many fans.

Some fans claim that it was a fantastic series that changed the status quo of the X-Men while instead of constantly retreading old plots and the same old character conflicts. The other half didn't like like, in particular, the way that Cyclops and Jean Grey's relationship was broken up in favour of Cyclops and Emma Frost, and Magneto being portrayed and the fact that [[spoiler: Xorn is revealed to be Magneto]] didn't go over well with many fans.depicted as a cackling genocidal villain.

* How ComicBook/HarleyQuinn should be portrayed has become this due to the drift between newer fans (fans who like her because of the ComicBook/New52, ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'', or ''ComicBook/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'') and older fans (fans of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''). The problem is caused due to how she's [[DependingOnTheWriter portrayed in media inconsistently]]. Should Harley be TheDitz, a GeniusDitz, a DitzyGenius, or is she ObfuscatingStupidity? Was she a genuine psychologist (or psychiatrist depending on who you ask) or was she only in it for the cash and couldn't make it through the schooling [[SextraCredit on her own]]? Then there's the costumes, in particular her newer one's that pile on the {{Fanservice}}. Some really enjoy the new designs and find them to be synonymous with her character, Harley's newer designs in particular have become a very popular cosplay choice; others find the changes unnecessary and another tactless way to pile on pointless sex-appeal.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Joker}}'' has caused this with ''how'' it decided to depict its version of [[ComicBook/TheJoker its title character]] with some saying he's still in character, just toned down and others saying that Brian Azzarello intentionally making the Joker not funny to readers and/or even implied to be a pill popper was out of character--and that's without getting into the fact that MemeticMolester reputation aside, it's the only time it's explicit that the Joker raped someone and there's debate over that going too far and again, out of character. There's also some fans who hated the depiction of the normally-talkative PerkyFemaleMinion ComicBook/HarleyQuinn as a {{silent|Antagonist}} [[TheDragon Dragon]] for the Joker.

* Talk about any kind of relationships in either {{Marvel}} or {{DC}} and see the flame wars flare up about which pairing was better for that character, whether it's Cyclops/Emma Frost vs. Cyclops/Jean Grey or Superman/Lois Lane vs. Superman/Wonder Woman.

** Wondy fandom ''defines'' BrokenBase. There is absolutely nothing we can't make an epic battle between good and evil. Secret ID, or no secret ID? Pre-Crisis or post-Crisis? Like a love interest, or loathe him? (Though never 'her,' there was surprisingly little argument over Io.) Love the costume, or despise it? Yea or nay on the invisible plane? ''And what about her frigging heels?''

* When ''TheFlash: Rebirth'' mini-series was announced, with the news it was bringing back Barry Allen, the ''Flash'' fanbase suffered a split down the center between Allen and Wally West almost identical to ''Green Lantern'''s Jordan/Rayner divide. At least this time people could see it coming.

* ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'' has caused some of this in Brandon Sanderson's fandon when it first came out, though not to the extent this tends to happen in other fandoms. Some, who's read the original draft for ''White Sand'' novel, find the graphic novel version inferior, while others call it SoOkayItsAverage, whereas yet others praise it as an excellent story and a good GatewayDrug into graphic novels in general.

* As with the games, [[ComicBook/SonicTheComic both]] ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog comics]].
