* Kenton of ''ComicBook/WhiteSand''. While he points out himself that determination is no substitute for ''ability'' he lacks, he manages to climb to the highest rank of Sand Masters by sheer stubborness, then survives being buried under a metre of sand with sheer willpower and protects his remaining people with little more than zeal.

* {{Comicbook/Superman}}. In ''ComicBook/EmperorJoker'', Batman is broken by having himself killed, night after night after night. Only Superman's selfless offer to take those memories (thanks to Mxyzptlk and ComicBook/{{the Spectre}}) enables him to go on. Superman is also seen in the John Byrne reboot boosting the willpower of a group of Green Lanterns' rings. He beat Doomsday after the JLA had been crushed, the story frequently describing him as never giving up.

* Superman's cousin ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' never quits. Never. Not even when she's poisoned with Kryptonite, her body is getting stolen by an alien abomination, and her heart has stopped. Even so, she'll keep fighting. In the ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' arc she explains that her mother taught her to never give up.
-->'''Supergirl:''' But then I thought of mother. I remembered all I had to live up to. A daughter of the House of El never quits. I wasn't about to be the first.

* Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}} is the Marvel personification of heroic spirit and being the main face of the company you gotta make expectations meet, some might say even his [[HeroWithBadPublicity buttmonkey status]] is actually enhancing him to make his detemination powers stronger.

* Basically every main character in ''SinCity'': Hartigan, Marv, Dwight, Wallace... some of the predicaments that these characters find themselves in are flabbergasting, yet they never show more than the slightest notion of fear in their endeavors.

* The graphic novel ''[[ThreeHundred 300]]'' (and really, the real life battle that it it based on) makes a note of showing that all of the 300 Spartans (particularly King Leonidas) are some of the most {{badass}} {{determinator}}s imaginable.

* The GreenLantern Corps is full of Determinators, with Hal Jordan being a big one. Seeing as their rings are fueled by will power, this is probably a given.

* {{ComicBook/Huntress}}, the Helena Bertinelli version, is made of this trope. At one point, the Joker shot her three times in the stomach at point blank range, and she kept coming. Another time, she fought Lady Shiva in hand-to-hand combat, threw her own blood in Shiva's face to blind her, and managed to knock Shiva down. Shiva dubbed her the Iron Owl for this.

* Also, say what you like about Doctor Doom, but his obsessive, all-consuming hatred of Reed Richards never, ever, ''ever'' dies, and he ''will'' keep living, and fighting, and plotting Richards' ultimate and final defeat until one of them is dead. [[ComicBookDeath And even then he will not give up.]]
