** Bolivar Trask was the misguided WellIntentionedExtremist who first invented the Sentinels. The first time they malfunctioned, he had a serious HeelRealization and sacrificed himself to destroy Master Mold. (A SenselessSacrifice, it turned out.) Sadly for the poor guy, he was resurrected by the Purifiers through use of a Technarch to be part of a team of the world's foremost mutant killers. After being [[DamnedByAFoolsPriase given credit for the highest record of mutant kills]] due to his creations, 16,521,618, the regret he felt was only amplified, and he killed himself after escaping Bastion's mental control.

* Susan Smith of ''ComicBook/FunkyWinkerbean'' attempted suicide when she realized that the teacher she had a crush on loved someone else. She's probably contemplating it again. Also had another character commit suicide when he realized he wouldn't make valedictorian. What is it with Batuik wanting smart people to kill themselves?

* Sunstreaker in "All Hail Megatron". After stupidly trusting Starscream and getting himself and his fellow Autobots stranded on Cybertron in imminent danger of death, and after watching Mirage beaten up in his place by Ironhide as a suspected traitor, Sunstreaker can't take it any more and just wants to die. Which he apparently does by detonating an explosive to destroy a bridge he's on while surrounded by the mutant Insecticon Swarm.
** AllHailMegatron #14 indicated that he might have survived. [[spoiler:Ironhide #3 confirms it, though he's badly damaged and his mind really messed up. Understandable after what he's been through.]]
* After [[ComicBook/KravensLastHunt burying Spider-man alive]], impersonating him, and defeating an enemy Spider-man couldn't, Kraven killed himself because after proving himself better than Spider-man in every way, he had defeated what was supposed to be the ultimate prey and had nothing left to hunt. Yes that's incredibly flawed logic, especially in the Marvel Universe, but Kraven was insane.

* Minuteman Jack "The Monster" Daw from ''[[OneHundredBullets 100 Bullets]]''. He's addicted to self destructive tendencies: alcohol, heroin, and violence. He makes remarks about wanting to die yet he teases death with the needle or the gun as Graves puts it. The gun being a metaphor for violence. Jack got clean but he hasn't really changed since he keeps seeking the kick (violence) that diverts him from facing his pain. There is a moment where he avoids violence and seems to be getting better. Jack "relapses" (violence); kills a guard by squeezing his head with his foot followed by challenging candidate-minuteman Crete. [[spoiler:Jack dies fighting crete when alligators devour them both. It shows us that he stayed married to his self destructive nature until the end.]]

* In ''UltimateMarvel'', the Vision sent a psychic broadcast around the world that was so nightmarish that it caused mass-suicides around the world. The broadcast turned out to be a recording of what the EldritchAbomination [[{{Galactus}} Gah Lak Tus]] had done to previous worlds before coming to Earth, in hopes of warning the population.

** Happened on a mass scale when an entire planet conquered by Mongul I chose suicide over continuing to accept his rulership. Given Mongul's power and brutality, this may have been a thoroughly reasonable decision.

* ''ComicBook/GreenLantern'' John Stewart nearly killed himself after being unable to stop the destruction of an inhabited planet (partly due to his own overconfidence). MartianManhunter used reverse psychology to talk him out of it.
