** The Decepticons who speak in the Kimia ghetto establish their personalities immediately in a single sentence. Cyclonus disavows any affiliation with the Decepticons, seeing as how he doesn't share their values. Swindle, cheerfully and shamelessly sleazy as ever, tries to bargain his way out. Starscream gives a doubtful, scornful huff because of how things turned out--as a career schemer, he sees the Autobots' lack of coordination for what it is. Ratbat proves that once a politician, always a politician, trying to be released on account of his former social position, and immediately talking out the other side of his mouth in an attempt to rally the Decepticons to him when it fails.

* Franchise/{{Superman}} ''Franchise/{{Superman}}''
** Superman himself
in a [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/5a/Action_Comics_1.jpg nutshell]].nutshell]].
** The [[LegacyCharacter second]] Bloodsport establishes himself as a virulent bigot with no limits to said bigotry within the first three pages of his debut issue, with his response to coming across a gang of thugs, two black and one white, attempting to gang-rape a woman. He shoots and kills the two black guys while using the racially offensive terms "boy" and "your kind" to them; then when he's got the white thug at gunpoint and the woman demands that he shoot the guy for what they almost did to her, he shoots and kills ''her'' while muttering that "they always knew their place," ''then'' kills the white guy for being a "race-traitor."
--> '''Superman:''' Alien, black, Jew, gay...where ''do'' you draw the line, Bloodsport?
--> '''Bloodsport:''' Anywhere I want!

* The very first scene in ''ComicBook/TheDivine'' shows Jason, in a helicopter over an Asian jungle, shooting panicked animals from a machine-gun for fun. Then a ''dragon'' pops up, and Jason, without missing a beat, shoots it in the eye from "an American-made gun" while remarking sarcastically that "they told me not to shoot it. It's bad luck in the fairy tales." It's clear that Jason's a testosterone-addled macho who doesn't believe in anything greater than himself.

* ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'' is chock-full of those:
** Drile's introduced as having tried to sell his Sand Master skills for money.
** The whole story starts with Kenton arguing with his father about skill vs. strength and how he wants to go through Mastrell's Path to prove his worth.
** Praxton, for that matter, is quickly established as a jerkass and Fantasy-Forbidding Father in the same argument.
** Aarik's first scene is beating up a thug in two sword moves and throwing a snarky comment before disappearing into the streets.
** Khrissalla enters the tent Kenton's recuperating in like a supermodel on a catwalk.

* The first time we (clearly) see Xadhoom in ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' has her blasting her way through a wall, [[BigDamnHeroes save Paperinik from a group of Evronians]] and killing most of them with an awesome (if relatively subdued) display of her powers, ''[[LetsYouAndHimFight blast Paperinik because she mistook him for another Evronian]]'', notice that her Evronian-killing blast hasn't caused him any damage and thinking that either he wasn't Evronian or was just very tough, and switching to FrickinLaserBeams to make sure he'll die. This tells the reader that she ''hates'' Evronians and is intelligent enough to know how to kill them without harming non-Evronians, and hints to her being a scientist.

* When she first appear in ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}'', [[LovableAlphaBitch Cornelia Hale]] muses on how her friend Irma somehow managing to get interrogated in class only on what she studied is nothing special compared to what she's been pulling lately, teases her best friend Elyon about her bad grade in math and her crush on Matt Olsen before leaving her to deal alone with Irma and Hay Lin deciding a penitence for her bad grade, and then notices that [[NewTransferStudent Will and Taranee are getting bullied]] and reacts by [[BullyHunter sending the bullies running]] before effectively adopting the new students in her group of friends.

** The first time we see Dr. Manhattan he is shown as a giant which [[PhysicalGod showcases his power]] as well as his [[HumanoidAbomination truly alien nature to the rest of the world]]. He then responds to the news of The Comedian's death with [[BlueAndOrangeMorality "Life and death are meaningless abstracts. Why should I care?"]]
