** Exodus, albeit weakened and reduced to being a PsychicVampire by a brutal fight with Holocaust on Avalon, attracted by Nate and Cable's fight. Exodus had the upper hand... then Nate sensed his connection to Apocalypse. One bout of UnstoppableRage later, Exodus was at the bottom of a very large crevasse.

* [[ComicBook/XMan Nate Grey]], Cable's ''ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse'' counterpart, was prone to handing these out, since despite being UnskilledButStrong, he was creative and was estimated at the age of 17 to be on par with the Dark Phoenix. Notable examples include...
** AoA!Sinister, who Nate ultimately laminated to the floor after Sinister killed his foster father, Forge.
** Holocaust, Apocalypse's son, who fancied himself as Nate's ArchEnemy. Nate felt differently, and swatted him out the way with a contemptuous remark about the prelude being over and now being more interested in the main event, before going after Apocalypse. The second round didn't end well for Holocaust either.
** AoA!Apocalypse, who Nate [[LaserGuidedTykeBomb was created by Sinister to kill]], and who Nate kicked seven shades of crap out of, before leaving him on a platter for Magneto to rip in half.
** Cable, who mostly kept up with Nate by cunning, experience, dodging his attacks and a sucker punch or two.
** Exodus, albeit weakened and reduced to being a PsychicVampire by a brutal fight with Holocaust on Avalon, attracted by Nate and Cable's fight. Exodus had the upper hand... then Nate sensed his connection to Apocalypse. One bout of UnstoppableRage later, Exodus was at the bottom of a very large crevasse.
** Excalibur (not including Rachel Grey, it has to be said), twice. Peter Wisdom's ribs were never quite the same. Hilariously, Nate was actually defeated by a firm scolding from [[AlmightyMom Moira]] [=MacTaggert=].
** Jean Grey, when she tried to interfere with Nate's little argument with Maddie Pryor, getting flattened by Nate in one shot.
*** Nate was also on the receiving end from Maddie.
** Later, on his return during ''Dark Reign'', he fried the Dark Beast and comfortably took on both the Dark X-Men and Dark Avengers, giving a polite running commentary on why their various powers wouldn't work, with only Ares causing him anything like a problem - and by the looks of things, he actually threw that fight.



** Another Spider-Man example: he goes up against one of Galactus' former Heralds, Firelord, and it seems that Firelord has the upper hand, because Spidey has self-doubts about his skills. Once Spider-Man gets pissed, Firelord is taken out in less than five panels. Of course, it was after Firelord had just hurt a child and Spidey pretty much went berserk. And quite frankly, every time a villain hurts a child in Spider-Man's presence, Spidey will utterly devastate him, the only exception being [[spoiler:Lizard, who had evolved and developed new powers, which stopped Spider-Man from trashing him]].

** The "Hulk vs." battles in the main title fit the description as well -- a [[HopeSpot brief moment where it looks like someone might actually take Hulk out]], followed immediately by an asskicking. Only the Sentry gave him anything close to a run for his money.

Only the Sentry Sentry, and in a ''What If?'', Thor gave him anything close to a run for his money.money (the Sentry ultimately went nuts and lost control, while Thor and Hulk were evenly matched until a kid popped up and pointed out that their fight was putting a lot of people in danger).

* 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''.]]
