** In an article about a local black comic book artist/writer, a paper claimed that there were only five black superheroes, which the article proceeded to list. Aside from the fact that there are far more than five black superheroes, the list didn't mention ComicBook/{{Storm}} (who, due to the at-the-time fairly recent first ''Film/XMen'' movie, was arguably the best-known black superhero in America) but did include [[ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]]. Who is white.

* The ''{{Series/Castle}}'' episode "Heroes & Villains" has a wall of heroes, including {{Deadpool}} and ComicBook/BlackPanther, and says they're all motivated by the murder of a parent. Except Deadpool is an insane mercenary with severe cancer whose kept alive by an implanted healing factor who isn't at all motivated by a parent's murder, and Black Panther, while he became the Panther because of his father's death, it's because the Black Panther is a hereditary title taken by the ruler and guardian of the fictional African country Wakanda, and T'Challa, the current Black Panter, received it as a result of the death of his father T'Chacka.

* Newspaper reviews of the autobiography/history of comics ''Supergods'' by Creator/GrantMorrison were particularly bad. [[http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/weekend/2011/0730/1224301600461.html The Irish Times]], in a caption to a picture of the JusticeLeagueOfAmerica, referred to ComicBook/TheFlash as ComicStrip/FlashGordon, while the Sunday Times used a piece of ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' fan art rather than the real deal and captioned it "Alan Moore's ''Watchman''".

Added DiffLines:

* The controversial Batgirl cover (The one where Batgirl is shown crying) rised some heated discussion, and at least one forum claimed that male superheroes were never shown weak or unable to act due to trauma. When Scarecrow's fear gas was brought up, they quickly claimed that it doesn't count because it's "not real fear, only chemicals". His fear gas creates realistic hallucinations of the victim's fears to terrify them, it doesn't just make them scared without a reason. By that logic, PTSD shouldn't exist, since any possible hallucinations are not real.

* Creator/RushLimbaugh stated the villain Bane in ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' was an obvious reference to Bane Capital and then made some other claims, but news outlets were quick to point out Bane was from UsefulNotes/TheNineties, before Bane Capital had existed.

* Creator/RushLimbaugh stated the villain Bane in ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' was an obvious reference to Bane Bain Capital (and thus an attack on 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney) and then made some other claims, but news outlets were quick to point out Bane was from UsefulNotes/TheNineties, before Bane Bain Capital had existed.

* The media brouhaha surrounding the fact that in-real-life beleaguered Prime Minister Gordon Brown appeared in the [[MarvelComics Marvel Comic]] ''Captain Britain and MI:13'' had several papers calling him [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1023597/Have-fear-Brown-help-save-world--new-comic-book-Captain-Britain.html SuperGordon]] and/or saying he "[[http://www.financialexpress.com/news/SuperGordon-to-help-save-world-in-Captain-Britain-fantasy/318214/ leads a counterattack]]" on the invading Skrulls, making him sound like [[OurPresidentsAreDifferent Prime Minister Action]]. In the comic itself, he shows competence and resolve, but doesn't do much; he does give commands, but seems to be a little bit out of the loop when it comes to the world of magic and superheroics.

*** Also a lot of news outlets neglected to mention that Ultimate Spider-Man is an AlternateUniverse character, which led a lot of laymen think that Marvel was replacing "classic"/616 Spider-Man, Peter Parker, not his UltimateMarvel counterpart.
