** It's surprising that this doesn't happen more often, but in 1993 {{Wolverine}} was attacking {{Magneto}}, so Magneto just said "Fuck it." and tore all the adamantium from Wolverine's skeleton. Wolverine survived thanks to his HealingFactor, but it was brutal.

* When ComicBook/{{Venom}} first broke out of prison following his first defeat, he headed for ComicBook/SpiderMan's apartment, not knowing he and Mary Jane had been evicted. Dropping in for a visit was the Black Cat, also looking to meet up with Peter. However, when the two meet, Venom demands to know where Spidey is and when Black Cat doesn't give him an answer, he's quick to attack. Despite dropping a chandelier on top of him, Venom wipes the floor with the Black Cat, tearing up the apartment and leaving her with a broken nose... and the revelation that Peter's married.

* ComicBook/{{X 23}} vs. Stryker's Purifiers when they assault the Xavier School in ''New X-Men''. The adults (including Emma, Cannonball, and the Sentinel ONE squadron) are rendered completely ineffective. Of the kids, only Dust is able to put up more than a token defense, but even she is overwhelmed. Then [[BigDamnHeroes Laura arrives]] on the scene, and ''tears the Purifiers to shreds''.

* ComicBook/{{X 23}} has had her share. Among the most notable:
** When her mother turns her loose against the Facility, she ''could'' have killed Zander Rice in seconds. She didn't. She put up her claws and proceeded to beat him to death for ''ten minutes'' as payback for the brutal treatment she endured at his hands. And there wasn't a ''thing'' he could do about it; he was completely at her mercy.

** She trades them with Lady Deathstrike during ''Messiah Complex''. X-Force encounters a battle between the Reavers and Cable while the latter is attempting to defend baby Hope. Laura, ''extremely'' [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend pissed off over Deathstrike nearly killing Hellion]], engages her in a fight which at first appears to go terribly against her. Deathstrike tears her apart and Laura is barely able to land a hit...until Deathstrike opens herself up for a surgical strike to her cybernetics. [[DeliberateInjuryGambit Exactly as Laura planned.]] It takes X ''seconds'' to finish her off.
** Laura is on the receiving end almost every time she encounters Kimura. Not because Kimura is a better fighter, or even all that powerful. Simply because she's physically indestructible, and nothing Laura can do can even scratch her skin. So when they ''do'' fight it out, Kimura puts her down with prejudice.
*** She was also subject to a savage one from Blob, of all people, in ''Comicbook/AllNewXMen''. In this case, Laura had been increasingly reckless in her actions, and made the mistake of charging in blindly in a direct attack. While the end result is masked by a GoryDiscretionShot, her head has clearly been pounded into paste to the point that Angel ''throws up'' when she starts to heal again.

* ''ComicBook/WorldWarHulk: X-Men'' is basically the Hulk handing one of these out to every X-Men team over the course of three issues. Until he runs into a fully powered Juggernaut, the most they can do is slow him down, and even then not for very long. Unfortunately, the Hulk was madder than he'd ever been before, which made him strong enough to stop [[TheJuggernaut the unstoppable Juggernaut]].

Mercury giving him a WhatTheHellHero about all of the mutant children slaughtered in the aftermath of [[Comicbook/HouseOfM Decimation]] and Hulk realizing Xavier had already suffered enough.

* In ''Comicbook/{{Exiles}}'', they spend two or three pages building up a fight between Mimic and an [[EvilTwin alternate universe double]] of CaptainAmerica. The fight is for the Skrull Gladiator Championship, which is the Skrull equivalent of the Superbowl. The actual fight lasts for two panels, with Mimic, [[ComboPlatterPowers a Swiss Army Knife of mutant powers]], unleashing the optic blasts that he borrowed from Cyclops. Mimic then flips the crowd the bird, and walks out of the arena.

* Marv vs. Manute in ''SinCity''. One would think that the fight would be epic since they're both very similar, physically. You'd be wrong. There's a reason why Manute has a fake eye in later stories.
* SquirrelGirl is a champion at this trope. Her most famous victories occurred off-panel, but in the ''Deadpool/GLI Summer Spectacular'', we see her give {{Deadpool}} the beating of his life in the space of a single page.

* Marvel villain Bullseye was on the receiving end of an ''absolutely epic'' one of these when he recklessly tried to kill American Eagle, a super-powered Native American who really wasn't in a good mood at the time. After pointing out to Bullseye that there's a big difference between going after unpowered normal types like Daredevil and someone like him, who both has super strength and doesn't hold back when using it, American Eagle proceeds to ''beat the complete and total shit'' out of Bullseye. It's a miracle he survived. Bullseye has since given American Eagle a very wide berth.

* Secret Wars opening issues had The Beyonder deliver one of these to Galactus and Doom
** The newly resurrected Ultron begins wrecking shit, until he tried to attack Galactus. Three panels of Ultron futilely attacking Galactus, and one panel of Galactus destroying him
** Nigh-omnipotent Molecule Man in full control of his powers vs Bulldozer and Doctor Octopus on separate occasions. Guess who wins.
** She-Hulk delivered one to the Enchantress, putting her in a coma with few hits. Good thign there were healing machines nearby
** Hulk vs Wrecking Crew minus Wrecker. The Jade Giant finished them

** Apollo gets his revenge two issues later, when he rips apart entire army of marvel-powerups parodies, including those two that got him earlier. Manwhile Jack and Doctor curbstomps other villaionous versions of Marvel superheroes, with former making city of Paris eat his opponents alive and Doctor turning his opponents bones into cologne.

** It's a Retcon. Those races were between the SilverAge versions of those two characters back when Superman really could keep up with the Flash (life just wasn't fair for the rest of the JLA back then). There had been one official ComicBook/PostCrisis race between Wally and Superman but, while Superman had been reduced in power, so had Wally and Wally only barely won. It was only when Barry returned at his full power level that it had to be explained that clearly, Barry must have been holding back during all those races (which is odd given that some of those races did have serious stakes and weren't just for charity.)

* Superboy vs. Superboy Prime in ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis. Superboy has weaker versions of most of the modern Superman's powers, while Superboy Prime could literally punch someone so hard their ancestors could feel it. [[spoiler: In a subversion, Superboy wins anyway in a DyingMomentOfAwesome by tricking the less-experienced Prime into letting Superboy destroy the {{Maguffin}}. He lost the fight, but won the objective.]]
