** In ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}''/''Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}'' story ''ComicBook/ElseworldsFinestSupergirlAndBatgirl'', Barbara and Bruce have a quite dry, sarcastic sense of humor:
-->'''Barbara:''' You're ruining my reputation, Mister Wayne.\\
'''Bruce:''' That's the price you pay for my assistance in crime-fighting, Ms. Gordon.\\
'''Barbara:''' Down here, that's Batgirl.\\
'''Bruce:''' As you command, but be good to me, or I'll tell Gotham about this cave hidden under its civic center.\\
'''Barbara:''' Threat noted. Your disappearance scheduled.

* [[ServileSnarker Alfred Pennyworth]], in various incarnations of ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'', constantly makes ironic (but [[GentlemanSnarker highly polite and proper]]) comments on Master Bruce's lifestyle.

* Whenever Franchise/{{Batman}} (in any incarnation) isn't either moping around in {{Wangst}} or being TheComicallySerious, he's generally the one with a deadpan line. Or, as Jaime Reyes (''ComicBook/BlueBeetle III'') put it, "Batman's actually kind of funny, in a dry, scary way." Typically, Batman needs Superman as a foil if he's going to be funny.\\

The Robins (most of them) tend to pick up the slack as far as snark goes.

* Believe it or not, GoldenAge Superman did this alot. Back when it was Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster writing, It would hardly be an issue where the Man of Tomorrow didn't throw a one-liner. (Albiet, in a very DEADPAN) Faction.
-->'''Criminal''': Let go of my hand!
-->'''Superman:''' Your foot will do just as well.

to:

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'':
** Pre-Crisis Kara Zor-El was the nicest and kindest Supergirl's version, but she had little patience for idiots.
*** In ''The Daring Adventures of Supergirl'' vol. 1 #12, while several mooks are shooting at her:
---->'''Supergirl:'' I hate thinking of the fortune in ammunition thugs like you have wasted on me over the years!
*** A short while later, a cop is berating her:
---->'''Lieutenant Peters:''' You wanna play cop, join the department and get yourself a badge! Until then, stay out of my way!\\
'''Supergirl:''' You need a hint as to what you can do with your badge, Peters?
** Creator/PeterDavid gave this quality to the Linda Danvers Supergirl and it has since passed over to future incarnations of the character.
** Post-Crisis Kara often makes sarcastic remarks when she gets angry. In Supergirl vol. 5 #22 she fights a SuperSoldier who claims to be "your tax dollars at work". After defeating him, she grumbles:
--->'''Supergirl:''' Tax dollars at work, my butt!
** New 52 Supergirl also has some good deadpan lines. In Supergirl #22, after Cyborg Superman reveals that he needs her flesh to become whole again, Supergirl gives this gem of an answer:
--->'''Supergirl:''' You want to say that again? I couldn't hear you through all the creepiness coming out of your mouth!
** In ''Comicbook/SupergirlRebirth'' #1, Kara and her foster mother Eliza have a friendly battle of wits:
--->'''Supergirl:''' Eliza, Jeremiah Do you need help?\\
'''Eliza:''' Not at all! I live to work hours cleaning twenty square feet.\\
'''Supergirl:''' Sarcasm is not unique to Earth, you know.\\
'''Eliza:''' Good. You already speak my language. This adjustment process will be easy.

** In contrast to Spidey, Clark Kent tends to be quite snarky at the ''Planet'', but drops it as Superman. This is DependingOnTheWriter in [[{{Film/Superman}} the Movie]], Superman was at ''least'' as snarky as Spider-Man ever was.
** It often depends who he's talking to, as well. When he's "Superman", say in public, or against a villain, no snarking. When he's around somebody that knows the real him (Clark), like Batman, he tends to be more snarky.
** In the New 52, he's actually fairly witty or sarcastic with most of his lines, both as Superman and Clark Kent. Like this particular gem, in a spaceship, with a gaping whole blown in the side of it by a giant:
--->Superman: Grifter, take your friend hiding in the rafters--\\
'''???:''' Deathblow.\\
'''Superman:''' Seriously? Never mind, just let me handle this--\\
'''Grifter:''' But the hull is breached!\\
'''Superman:''' You '''think'''...?

* ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'': ComicBook/{{Gambit}} (to name just one) is the absolute King of this trope. Every other sentence that comes out of his mouth is a snark. And you can never tell when he means it...

* This is such a defining characteristic of Lenny from ''ShadeTheChangingMan'' that when her ability to snark was stolen (along with her sex drive,) she attempted suicide.
