* ''Franchise/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' fell into this with the Creator/DarkHorseComics continuation. While the TV show equivalent averted this (though it came close with the first two seasons of SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLegendOfKorra'' before it managed to improve by its later two seasons), the same cannot be said with the comic book continuation, which is written by Gene Yang than the creators themselves or head writer Aaron Ehasz. Three of the five graphic novel trilogies were not well received by fans as ''[[ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderThePromise The Promise]]'' had Zuko [[spoiler:asking Aang to kill him if he ends up like his father]] in part 1, followed by his [[spoiler:breakup with Mai along with a ship tease between him and Suki]] in part 2, ''[[ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheSearch The Search]]'' had the letter in the end of part 1 revealing that Zuko's father Ozai [[spoiler:may not be his real father]], followed by [[spoiler:Azula running away defeated]] in the end of part 3 in addition to the FanDislikedExplanation of how Ursa disappeared and ''[[ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderSmokeAndShadow Smoke and Shadow]]'' had [[spoiler:Azula running away in defeat again]] and Mai [[TookALevelInJerkass becoming a complete jerk]] and being depicted as [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic someone that fans are supposed to sympathise but actually isn't]], especially how she treats Zuko to the point that it served as a CharacterDerailment moment and caused her to fall into being a [[TheScrappy very despised character]] after being one of the {{Base Breaking Character}}s in the series and how OutOfCharacter she was in the comics than in the series in addition to her relationship with Zuko has fallen under ShippingBedDeath (same with Aang and Katara) to the point that some fans now want Zuko to end up with Suki (aside from the popular FanPreferredCouple Zutara), which has pissed off Sukka fans since their romance averted the StrangledByTheRedString trope that affected both pairings. Thankfully, ''[[ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheRift The Rift]]'' and ''[[ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderNorthAndSouth North and South]]'' fare better with fans, with the former evolved from one of the ideas for the scrapped fourth season in addition to ''ComicBook/TheLegendOfKorraTurfWars''. In October 2017, Yang officially [[http://ew.com/books/2017/10/05/avatar-the-last-airbender-comic-gets-new-creators-new-designs/ departed]] to focus on ''ComicBook/NewSuperMan'' and Faith Erin Hicks took over with several fans hoping that Hicks would improve on the comics' quality, so only time will tell if said era ends.

* Deconstructed by ''ComicBook/JLAAvengers''. The heroes have had their two earths and timelines fused, and the entire cosmos keeps warping as a result. When they finally meet the Grandmaster, a cosmic being who was nearly killed by the other organizer of the event that led to the universes fusing, Krona, he tells them to stop Krona, which would separate the worlds and put the timelines back to normal. The heroes ask him, basically, "What kind of worlds are we going back to?" The Grandmaster, with the last of his power, shows them the events of their lives. The Dork Ages end up sticking out more than anything else; about half the examples on the [[DorkAge/TheDCU DC]] and DorkAge/{{Marvel}} pages are seen. The most notable becomes [[GreenLantern Hal Jordan]] -- at the time of the comic's writing, he had gone crazy, killed off all the other Lanterns, tried to destroy and remake the universe, died, and become the host for ComicBook/TheSpectre. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming And yet, when they debate, he decides to restore the old time because they are not gods to reshape reality as they see fit]]. Even more amazing when you consider that this is a reversal of what he himself tried to do in ''ComicBook/ZeroHour'' during his Parallax phase.

** What may have ended the Dork Age for now is the fact that the Ken Penders Lawsuit has forced a ContinuityReboot for the entire series, though only time will tell if this is truly the end of the Dork Age, an extension of it, or even a new Dork Age entirely. The effects of the lawsuit and the divisive reboot resulted in Sega ending their partnership with Archie in 2017 and [[ChannelHop jumped ship]] to Creator/IDWEntertainment to the point that it's been confirmed the IDW run will be a complete reboot not connected to the original or reboot continuities of the Archie run than a continuation of the Archie run.
