* One particularly obscure example that Franchise/{{Superman}} faced was [[MeaningfulName Viroxx]], which could only be described [[TheVirus an space-virus]] that devoured energy, [[TheAssimilator capable of converting sentient beings into drones]] that in turn would absorb others as nourishment for their master. The assimilating process was supposedly irreversible and turns the victim into a unfeeling, cold-blooded monster interested only in killing more people to absorb their energy (one heartbreaking moment was when a men witness his recently converted wife devours their daughter and him being forced to kill her in self-defense); It had laid waste to many worlds, destroying billions of lives and reducing entire populations into a few thousand vagrants based on space fleets. Even with Superman is unable to hold it back and in the end, with the combined effort of all the survivors they only managed to scary it away - ''not kill it'', but chase it far away from our galaxy.

* The recent run on the ''Franchise/GreenLantern'' comics has seen various alien entities that are incarnations of the various colors of the emotional spectrum, which has led to some fan speculating that these beasts may be like infant Chaos Gods from TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} in training. These include the Yellow Entity Parallax (Fear), the Green Entity Ion (Will), and the Violet Predator (Love). These entities are known to possess and empower worthy individuals, but are often monstrous and insanely powerful.

** ComicBook/{{Galactus}}. [[TimeAbyss Older than the universe itself]] and incomprehensible by mortals. It's {{canon}} that his hat-wearing humanoid form is simply an image our puny minds superimposes over a reality [[we cannot YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm truly comprehend]]; for instance, Beta-Ray Bill's species sees him as a big starfish.

** The Sparkeater, a monster the crew encounters in issue 3. It's a floating, multi-tentacled monstrosity that kills biomechanical lifeforms by making them ''vomit out their own brain'', than rips out their spark and eats it whole (which is comparable to eating human's soul). Legends say that it's attracted to emotional torment and searches for the locations of horrible crimes or tragedies to feast. The most disturbing part is that [[spoiler: [[WasOnceAMan it used to be a normal cybertronion]]; while normal, it was shot with an experimental weapon that basically killed it and than [[CameBackWrong reanimated and mutated it's body into the creature it became]].]]

Yeah, it was their fault that the Sparkeater exists in the first place]].

Added DiffLines:

** ''ComicBook/{{Aquila}}'': Ammit the Devourer. From what little we've seen of her, she's a bloated monstrosity that's all tentacles and mouths and feasts on the souls of the damned.

** [[spoiler: Patriot Costume]] may be this - nobody knows where it came from, why it took the form it did, why it [[spoiler: kidnapped Speed]] and what it wants from Young Avengers. However, it seems it can freely walk in and out of Mother's home dimension and don't get attacked. It seems to even ''creeps out'' Mother a bit.
