* 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/XMen 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 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."
