* ''Comicbook/MightyAvengers'' introduces a group of German extremists called W.E.S.P.E., who apparently hate HYDRA. When someone mentions HYDRA, one of the W.E.S.P.E. members remarks that he and his teammates may be nihilists, but at least they're not Nazis.

* Speaking of which, in ''Comicbook/SecretEmpire'', Black Ant and Comicbook/{{Taskmaster}} are initially wary of working with HYDRA. Black Ant even says while he and Taskmaster may be amoral criminals and killers, they aren't ''racists'' or Nazis. They end up being persuaded to join after Madame Hydra claims that the rumors of HYDRA being Nazis are merely lies spread by their enemies.

** At another point, North Korea attempts to bribe the Decepticons into destroying South Korea and manage to acquire the services of the Combaticons. The Autobots intervene to save South Korea, and the whole thing nearly ends with Russia nuking the entire Korean peninsula. Thundercracker, while not exactly the most pleasant individual and a fairly dangerous (former) Decepticon himself, proves that he has had just enough of North Korea's hijinks and the Decepticons in general, and responds by blowing up the North Korean energon facility so they wouldn't pull that kind of stunt agai, presumably because they would blame the Decepticons for what they perceived as treachery.

** In an old ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational'' issue, he allowed the League to leave Apokalips unharmed after he gave his word that they wouldn't be killed. He may be a monster , but at least he honors his promises!

** One thing that could explain this is that the Joker is [[OrderVsChaos in some ways]] the opposite of the Nazis. [[ChaoticEvil He's very random in his killing, does anything he can to get a laugh, and is just generally insane]]. The Nazis are [[LawfulEvil a dead serious organization which looks down their noses on those with mental illnesses and who have a very systematic and bureaucratic method of killing]] [[MurderArsonAndJaywalking and no sense of humor]].

Added DiffLines:

** During the time when Deadpool was working for the Butler, he was sent to go and kill a married couple, and was accompanied by Sabertooth. Once all was said and done, Deadpool would have his memory erased of the event. Deadpool pretty much blew up the house. Turns out, [[spoiler: that couple were Wade's parents. Wade pretty much blew up his childhood home, and doesn't know because his memory was erased afterwards.]] It is very obvious ''Sabertooth'' thought this was awful, and clearly felt bad for Deadpool.

** This became a subplot in ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'' with Luthor and [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Dr. Sivana]]. Originally in league with Libra, both quickly started covertly planning against Libra when they realized the true extent of Darkseid and Libra's plans. Lex decided he rather liked life (as opposed to anti-life) and Sivana said watching his own daughter submit to the Anti-Life Equation was the last straw. Libra's statement that leading the rearguard would grant Lex first line in what was implied to be a rape train on ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} probably helped to push Lex to find his moral fortitude as well.

* ''ComicBook/ArkhamAsylumLivingHell'' has the Joker talking down to a scam-artist corporate executive who got himself judged "Not guilty [[InsanityDefense by reason of insanity]]." Granted, he's usually crazily giggling and "playing" with cultural values, and bashing executives sounds right up his alley... except he and the plot are ''completely serious about this.'' As far as can be told, the issue here is that Warren White is just an ''asshole''. More specifically he says "I've killed people, but I didn't steal their kid's college funds." Hilariously, the Joker isn't the only one who does this in the story. ''Everyone'' the scam artist meets in Arkham calls him the "worst man I've ever met." The asylum director, Humpty Dumpty, the Joker, and [[spoiler:''demons from hell'']]--and Humpty is Warren's ''friend''. Oddly enough, White doesn't suffer from this after [[spoiler:he truly goes insane and ends up looking like a sharkman after getting locked in Mr. Freeze's cell.]] The other villains love him and are happy to take advantage of the services he offers [[spoiler:unaware that he made a DealWithTheDevil that will let him torture them in Hell after they all eventually die.]]
