* This is the biggest problem with the Utopia Initiative in ''ComicBook/SquadronSupreme''. They do come up with solutions to crime, poverty, war and even a stop gap measure for death, but the solutions are generated, implemented and maintained by a small team of superheroes and relies on them to maintain it. Humanity didn't earn it's happy ending the way Zarda's Utopians must have.

Added DiffLines:

* Volume 3 of ''ComicBook/KickAss'' ends the trilogy on a far better note compared to the first two volumes. Chris dies somewhat redeemed after refusing to go through executing Mindy out of remorse for traumatizing his mother with his crimes, allowing her and Dave to kill off much of the Mob and the corrupt cops, while Vic is brutally maimed and intimidated into turning up state evidence. Mindy's stepfather Marcus was cleared of wrongdoing and is allowed to return to the force, where he immediately leads a purge of its corrupt elements as well as crackdowns on the severely demoralized Mob. While the two have since cut off all contact, Dave is now happier with Valerie and has given up superheroics for good in favor of becoming a cop, while Mindy goes on a worldwide vigilante hunt, though she still sends flowers to her mother once in a while.

* MarvelUniverse since 2004 to 2010. First, ComicBook/ScarletWitch goes crazy and kills some people and the Avengers disband. Then ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'' wiped ninety percent of the mutants on Earth, and stopped new ones from being born. Then heroes have to fight [[ComicBook/CivilWar each other]], [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica one]] of Earth's greatest heroes dies, [[{{Spider-Man}} another]] [[ComicBook/OneMoreDay makes a deal with the devil]], [[ComicBook/IronMan another]] is labelled a fascist, [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]] is shot in space by [[EtTuBrute people he thought were friends]], has to fight for survival on another planet, and when he finally finds a place when he's accepted and loved, it's destroyed, so he [[WorldWarHulk comes back, pissed off]]. Then Bishop betrays the X-Men while Mister Sinister infiltrates the X-Mansion. Then we find out that Skrulls have infiltrated the superhero community, destroying the last bits of trust among heroes. And when they [[SecretInvasion attack]], the heroes taste [[DownerEnding Pyrrhic victory]]. Oh, and then [[Comicbook/DarkReign Norman Osborn becomes the most powerful man in the United States]], creates the ComicBook/DarkAvengers, attacks and destroys Asgard and....Good guys won. At that same point in time, various anti-mutant forces conspired to commit a single act of genocide that would destroy all of mutantkind by killing the last 200 mutants on the face of the Earth, starting with Cable and Nightcralwer and... Good guys won there too. After all of it, the heroes still won, managed to overthrow all those things, and their lives are [[StatusQuoIsGod returning back to normal]], heading towards a Comicbook/HeroicAge.

** Geoff Johns' run on the title when it starred Wally West also counts. Under Johns, Wally had to deal with the birth of the new Zoom, a former friend of his he failed to save and resolved to make Wally a better hero by [[TragedyBuildsCharacter forcing him to experience tragedy]]. Zoom would go on to cause his Wally's wife Linda to miscarry their twin children. After that, Wally learned that his mentor Barry was ''not'' the squeaky clean, white knight hero Wally thought he was, and in fact dipped into some ''very'' morally grey territory. After ''that'', Wally had to deal with the reformed Rogues turning back to their villainous ways but upping it to eleven. ''Then'', he had to deal with a war between various groups all calling themselves the Rogues. And finally, Zoom would return, with Professor Zoom in tow, and force Wally to relive his attack on Wally's wife repeatedly before Wally eventually beat him. At the end of all this, Wally got a second chance at being a father, with his twins being saved, Zoom admitting he was wrong in what he did before disappearing (he got better) and Wally coming tot he conclusion taht being the Flash is ''never'' about tragedy, but about always moving forward.
