* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: The fifth Lethal Legion, four spirits taken from Hell by Satannish. They are Axe of Violence, Cyana, Zyklon and Cold Steel (who wanted the name "[[{{Superman}} Man of Steel]]", but unfortunately [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall it was already taken]]). As the story advances, we are informed that those villains were actually Lizzie Borden, Lucrezia Borgia, Heinrich Himmler and Joseph Stalin, turned into supervillains (or, more exactly, receiving superpowers). No CommieNazis: Zyklon and Cold Steel tried to kill each other when they recognized the other; they only worked toguether because Satanish forces them to. No afterlife for them, not even in hell: they [[CessationOfExistence ceased to exist]] during the fight of Satannish and Mephisto.

* WrittenByTheWinners: Once upon a time, the Shi'Ar were almost destroyed by the Mephistoids, an AlwaysChaoticEvil race with CompellingVoice. But, in their darkest hour, T'Kyll Alabar managed to inspire bravery in the Shi'Ar troops, who fought with renewed strength and managed to turn the tide of the war and win. The Mephistoid leader was sentenced to roam the space in a SleeperStarship, alongside the hero that defeated him. LegendFadesToMyth, until the day the ship crashed on Earth. Alabar, the living legend, explained to the Shi'Ar Deathcry that it was all Shi'Ar propaganda, that the reviled mephistoids were actually [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters noble aliens defending their homeland from an invading Empire]]. And the Vision figured out something else as well. Legend says that Alabar inspired bravery on the soldiers all by himself, but does not mention [[YouKillItYouBoughtIt how did he do it]]. [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide It would be better to forget that little detail]]...
* XanatosGambit: Subverted in the first X-Men crossover, back in the days of Roy Thomas. Magneto boasted that he had calculated everything, that he was ready for all possible outcomes. Then, the Avengers defeated the mind-controlled X-Men. Toad asked, now what? Which is the plan for this specific scenario? None. No plan. From then on, Magneto's whole business in the island began to fell down in pieces.
