** Deadpool himself is one too. Everyone hates him, He has awful luck with women and is subjected to all sorts of Slapstick.Oh and also , ya know being [[BlessedWithSuck living Stage 4 and all]]
* The life of Remy Lebeau alias ComicBook/{{Gambit}} (X-Men) starts by not being Remy LeBeau - he was kidnapped as a baby because of a prophecy and will never know his real parents. He was brought up as a thief, never having a chance to a normal life and we don't know about normal education. He was regularly targeted by the Assassins Guild and other bad people because he was designated a successor to his "adoptive" father, the head of the Thieves Guild. Then he had to marry his best childhood friend out of political reasons, only to be ordered to a duel by her evil brother which he couldn't refuse without banishment. He took the duel, killed the brother and... was banished. Later it is revealed that his wife even planned all that and was very happy about it, no matter making his life hell for years and trying to kill him. His powers are burning him out, so he gets a power limiter, only the price for that is leading people somewhere where these people kill a whole folk - the Morlocks- without knowing. He saves one kid who will become a mass murderer later. When he tries to steal paintings, he meets Storm who is made into a kid and stumbles into danger. Later he joins the X-Men but is never really a part of it, always an outsider among the outsiders. He falls in love with the only women never able to touch (Rogue) who plays on- and- off with him, dumping him regularly for other people (Joseph, Fantomex, etc.) leaving him to die in Antarctica. Now he is a character that hardly appears at all, only to have his love life telepathically broadcasted by Rogue, who he can now touch but who dumped him yet again. On top of all of that, he has spent the majority of hero-life wearing a pink breast plate, what made him ambivalent among X-Men fans.

* The life of Remy Lebeau alias ComicBook/{{Gambit}} (X-Men) starts by not being Remy LeBeau - he was kidnapped as a baby because of a prophecy Scott Summers aka ''ComicBook/Cycolps'' has gone though more shit and will never know his real parents. He was brought up as a thief, never having a chance to a normal life mockery and we don't know about normal education. He was regularly targeted by the Assassins Guild and other bad people because he was designated a successor to his "adoptive" father, the head ligtmate hatred than any of the Thieves Guild. Then long standing X-Men despite being TheLeader of the team for longest time. Even as a child he had to marry screws up his best childhood friend out of political reasons, only to be ordered to a duel by her evil brother which he couldn't refuse without banishment. He took the duel, killed the brother and... was banished. Later it is revealed that EyeBeams after falling off cliff and landing on his wife even planned all that and was very happy about it, no matter making his life hell for years and trying to kill him. His powers are burning him out, face, so he gets a power limiter, only can't control the price for that is leading people somewhere where these people kill a whole folk - optic blast ''ever''. Scott still holds respect as leader of the Morlocks- without knowing. He saves one kid who will become a mass murderer later. When he tries to steal paintings, he meets Storm who is made into a kid and stumbles into danger. Later he X-Men, until ''ComicBook/Wolverine joins the X-Men but is never really team. Logan does his best to make Scott look like a part of it, always an outsider among the outsiders. He falls in love ass and flirts with the only women never able to touch (Rogue) who plays on- and- off ''ComicBook/JeanGrey'' Scott's girl friend, not helped by fact every time Jean dies Scott [[YourCheatingHeart sleeps around with him, dumping him regularly for other people (Joseph, Fantomex, etc.) leaving women]] which leads to him to die getting brutalised by Wolverine or sometimes Jean herself. Scott's popularity takes a meteoric plunge in Antarctica. Now the Marvel universe when he is a character that hardly appears at all, only to have kills Professor X while under the influence of the Phoenix Force, it's also worth noting Scott's was still in control of his love life telepathically broadcasted by Rogue, who he can now touch but who dumped actions and Phoinex Force hadn't completely taken him yet again. On top over, so it's a mix of all of that, he has spent the majority of hero-life wearing a pink breast plate, what made him ambivalent among X-Men fans.helplessness and actual malice on Scott's part.

Added DiffLines:

* Hellion of the Comicbook/{{New X Men|AcademyX}}. His parents disinherit him for an incident which he didn't even start (and [[TheUnfavorite generally had a low opinion of him]] even ''before'' he manifested his powers). He loses his girlfriend shortly after M-Day (his own fault), and many of his friends are killed during Stryker's attacks, including one of his best friends and teammate. He does the right thing when Emma Frost tries to rig a contest to take out Comicbook/{{X 23}}, and just gets punished for his trouble. He's been gutted by Deathstrike, the Leper Queen turned him into a walking bomb with the Legacy Virus, Nimrods destroyed his hands (which have somehow never been healed despite the presence of powerful mutant healers like Elixir and Triage) while helping defend San Francisco from Bastion. He's punished for doing the only thing he could to stop Karima ''at her own request no less'' and treated like a monster by ''every'' senior X-Man despite them ''all'' having done far, ''far'' worse. Then his ''second'' girlfriend rebuffs him when he reaches out to her for help coping with what he's going through, and she coldly ''lies to his face'' about not caring about him anymore to break it off. ''Then'' he gets dumped into Spidey's remedial class because he's viewed as untrustworthy and likely to undergo a FaceHeelTurn. Most recently, he's revealed as one of the mutants who has somehow been overlooked by [[Comicbook/ExtraordinaryXMen Storm and her team sheltering in Limbo]], infected with the M-Pox, and nearly gets himself killed when he decides to [[TakingYouWithMe single-handedly attack Attilan]] reasoning he's dying anyway (fortunately Synapse manages to shut down his powers and saves his life). Pretty much any time he turns up, you can pretty much expect ''something'' bad to happen to him.
** For that matter, the New X-Men. Almost their entire generation was wiped out during the Decimation. Forty of their depowered number were murdered in a [[BusCrash bus bomb]] set by the Purifiers, while others were killed when Stryker attacked the Xavier school in the chaos afterwards. Despite their frequently {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d combat experience, they're ''still'' often treated as raw newbies by the experienced X-Men. If they're even remembered ''at all''. These days they rarely even appear as wallpaper despite their immense popularity, and when they ''are'' brought out of the background, it's usually to kill one of them off for shock value (usually Elixir, who, thanks to his powers, has suffered this ''several'' times!).
---> '''Surge:''' There's nothing you can teach us, "Prof".... We already know how to die.

* What's the most thankless job at [[MarvelComics Marvel's]] biggest newspaper, the ''Daily Bugle'', the guy who has the biggest reason to shout DudeWheresMyRespect? The guy who writes obituaries! Seriously! His name is Dilbert Trilby, and in ''Spider-Man Unlimited'' #1 after ComicBook/DoctorOctopus was killed (and subsequently resurrected by the Hand) he had a meltdown that you just ''have'' to sympathize with at the prospect of having to retract an obituary of the villain that he claimed was Pulitzer material, ranting in despair to Ben Ulrich how he has files full of past ones he had written on guys like ComicBook/SpiderMan, [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk the Hulk]], and the ComicBook/FantasticFour. ("Don't even get me started on the ComicBook/XMen!" he moans). all of which he painstakingly worked on after researching the lives of the subjects, only to have to retract them. In a universe where DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist, someone like him just can't catch a break.

* Filler Bunny from various JhonenVasquez comics was created purely to entertain the audience by being tortured. Appropriately enough, at one point he has a monkey climb up his butt.

* Herr Starr from ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'' is the recipient of ever-increasing quantities of humiliating violence. As a child, he has one of his eyes put out and goes bald; during the plotline of the comic, he gets [[BlackComedyRape raped by a male prostitute]], has a large scar carved into his head (which makes it look like a [[FreudWasRight giant... Uh...]]), has one ear shot off, narrowly escapes cannibals who eat his leg, and finally has his genitals eaten by a Rottweiler, leading to his forlorn use of the phrase "my cock is in the bitch's mouth and not in a good way".

* Wally West is kind of the go-to ButtMonkey for ''ComicBook/TheFlash'' writers. However bad any other speedster has it, they can always look at Wally and thank their lucky stars they're not ''him''.

to:

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} in ''ComicBook/SupergirlCosmicAdventuresInTheEightGrade'' is convinced that her new homeworld hates her. Her schoolmates mock her, her teachers are sadistic jerks, and her powers malfunction at the most inopportune times.

* ''Transhuman'' by JonathanHickman has a group of literal butt-monkeys. That is they are supposedly the showcase for a new type of genetic modification designed to give you superpowers, yet upon being sent to recapture a group of escaped, enhanced intelligence monkeys, they are captured and anally raped these monkeys live on TV. People make jokes about this, even to their faces, for the rest of their lives. The genetic modifications eventually have horrible side effects as well.
