* During the first ''ComicBook/{{Batman}} Vs. Film/{{Predator}}'' mini-series, Batman's first encounter with the alien hunter is so lopsided that the only thing that saved Bruce from being the creature's next trophy was the Batmobile.

*** Also from ''Secret Wars''. To wit, Titania, the new villainess of the comic, has just come out of inflicting a [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown nightmarish group beatdown]] on She-Hulk that very nearly killed her and is buzzing to go out to find the other superheroes. She bumps into Spider-Man, who is alone, much smaller and weaker than her... but he is much faster than her, and more, he's [[TranquilFury in absolutely]] ''[[TranquilFury no mood]]'' to play around with her after what she did. Titania never landed a single hit on Spidey and was eventually reduced to panicked pleading for him to stop before being [[DestinationDefenestration defenestrated through a concrete wall]]. For ''years'' afterwards, Titania had a ''crippling phobia'' of him.

She bumps into Spider-Man, who is alone, much smaller and weaker than her... but what is not immediately obvious to Titania is that he is much faster than her, has a ''huge'' advantage in speed, agility, reflexes, and fighting experience, and more, he's [[TranquilFury in absolutely]] ''[[TranquilFury no mood]]'' to play around with her after what she did. Titania never landed a single hit on Spidey and was eventually reduced to panicked pleading for him to stop before being [[DestinationDefenestration defenestrated through a concrete wall]].

Added DiffLines:

** Thor quickly taught an arrogant and overconfident Titania that she's nowhere near ''his'' weight class when she tries to fight him. Thor did it with the Asgardian version of "when Hell freezes over."
--->'''Titania''': "Everyone will be talking about me! Titania! The woman who killed Thor!"
--->'''Thor''': "Mayhap, woman. When icicles doth grace Surter's fiery realm." He then punches her so hard she is knocked out of sight over the horizon.

* ComicBook/{{Magneto}}'s first two battles with the "new" X-Men (the 1975 team) were long enough to be interesting, but with two of the X-Men helpless against him (Colossus and Wolverine are both very metallic), they still get thoroughly stomped. They carefully plan their third battle; one might argue they have the upper hand when the game is called on account of volcano, but it's still a close one.

** Superman vs the Auth.. erm vs the Elite. To educate the Elite, a new group of violent and cynical superheroes who want to kill him, Superman gives them such an insane beating that the last one standing really believes Superman has crossed his sacred line and killed all of his teammates. Then Supes proceeds to show said last man standing exactly how powerless normal people feel when reckless metahumans treat them as their playthings. [[spoiler:Supes doesn't actually kill ''any'' of them, but rather knocked them out using various methods, meaning that while taking all of them down seemingly effortlessly, ''he was still holding back''.]]

*** Averted in Batman and Robin; if you`ve read some of the confrontation between Tim and Damian leading up to this this one you probably expect another Curb Stomp Battle, but Damian actually seems to win during the first half of the fight before Tim gains the upper hand again.

** Batman gets one handed to him by Reverse-Flash in ''Comicbook/TheButton'', being unable to successfully stall him even for a minute. Of course old Reverse Flash gets his arrogant ass vaporized by [[spoiler: Doctor Manhattan]] moments later when he decides to investigate the bauble Batman had found a while back.

** Takes another one at the hands of Daken in ComicBook/DarkReign, [[spoiler: this time fatally]]. For all his expertise in explosives, firearms and CQB techniques, Frank is ''still'' a baseline human, and Daken has his father's HealingFactor and was ''bred'' to be a weapon. Interestingly, there's a quite a bit of ''fighting'', but nothing Frank does [[NoSell works]], and just results in Daken mocking him harder. Once the fight [[CombatBreakdown devolves]] into Daken's blades versus Frank's Kabar, it's a matter of seconds until [[spoiler: he's hacked to pieces and tipped into an alley like garbage]].
