* In the Franchise/{{X-Men}} comics as a whole, this happened to the character of {{Magneto}}: First, he was just a former friend who did a FaceHeelTurn and believed in [[FantasticRacism Mutant Superiority]]. Then, his backstory, especially his being a Holocaust Survivor is developed in depth and he goes from re-occurring BigBad to [[AntiVillain Anti-Villain]] who is acting preemptively because he believes that it's just a matter of time until [[HumansAreBastards mutants are rounded up into Death Camps.]]

* For DC in general, ComicBook/PostCrisis, was this in general compared to the lighthearted Silver Age, and the slightly more grounded Bronze Age. There were many dark and depressing comic storylines. [[ComicBook/EmeraldTwilight Hal Jordan going insane with grief and trying to remake the universe]], [[ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman Superman dying]], [[ComicBook/{{Knightfall}} and Batman getting his back broken and replaced]] by the AntiHeroSubstitute ComicBook/Azrael. **[[UsefulNotes/BronzeAge|OfComicbooks]] was also less silly than the Silver Age, especially for DC. Topics like drug addiction, racism, and other social issues were addressed.

* For the entire SuperHero ''genre'' as a whole, this is a CyclicTrope. TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks was darker and more dramatic than TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks, and since the end of TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks, Fun Comics have been on the upswing.

** The comics tend to bounce up and down in this and it's pretty easy to see when the comic is gonna hit the DarkerAndEdgier mark: watch and see how much Peter has. If he has plenty of stuff and is quite happy, then chances are he's heading for this.
