* In ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'', ComicBook/{{Sabretooth}} thinks himself a violent, animalistic savage who lives only to hunt and kill, and is ''very'' proud of this fact. He does [[AxCrazy a very good]] [[PsychoForHire job at living]] [[ImAHumanitarian up to this]].
* Most supervillain teams have names which identify them as evil; [[Comicbook/TheAvengers The Masters of Evil]], the [[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Injustice League]], the Secret Society of Super-Villains, etc. Occasionally, as with the [[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} Brotherhood of Evil Mutants]], it's explained later that the characters [[WhatIsEvil don't see themselves as evil]], but are aware others do and [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy feel they can use this to their advantage]].
** The film version of ''Film/{{X-Men}}'' avoids this by having Magneto simply call his group "The Brotherhood of Mutants".

-> ''The SilverSurfer met his latest and greatest enemy this year: A tyrant named Tyrant. And wasn't it only last year that ComicBook/XFactor was fighting nasty boys called the Nasty Boys? Next year, Marvel heroes will battle all-new characters named Villain, The Bad Guys, The Antagonist, The Opponent, The Legion of Enemies, Mister Naughty, and The Incredible Do-Badder.''
-->-- '''Marvel Year In Review 1993'''

* In Rick Veitch's early-2000s run on ''Comicbook/{{Aquaman}}'', the titular hero confronts his archnemesis (and murderer of his son), Black Manta, and, after defeating him, uses his new magic powers to re-wire his brain and cure him of his autism; the painful and incompetent treatment he received as a child was part of why he'd become such an insane monster. He appears to turn himself around, but the apparent FreudianExcuse and HeelFaceTurn are subverted when, at a critical moment, Manta stabs Aquaman in the back and explains: "Y'see, deep down, in my most secret heart of hearts, I'm still a totally depraved sonuvabitch whose main goal in life is to watch you die. Slowly and painfully. Just like your kid."

* In ''{{ComicBook/Violine}}'', Muller boasts about how much of a bad guy he is, even claiming this is what [[makes him survive his apparent death]]. The corrupt board executives of the company exploiting Africans in Zongo also know they do bad things, but don't care and delight in it.

** Similarly, recent issues of SavageDragon have subverted this a bit with the new OverLord referring to his team (the Vicious Circle) simply as The Circle. Since there are a number of similarities between Magneto's Brotherhood and OverLord's Circle, it's arguable that one is in response to the other.
