** Papa Smurf could also be seen as a good counterpart to Gargamel. One wizard who uses magic for good, while the other uses it for sinister purposes.

* The ''Comicbook/IncredibleHulk'' now has the ComicBook/RedHulk. The Leader and the Abomination (both gaining their powers from exposure to gamma radiation, the latter also being a green-skinned and super strong behemoth like the Hulk) probably fit this role too.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' has fought many evil versions of hers throughout her career:
** The original Satan Girl, an EvilTwin created by exposure to Red Kryptonite, is every bit as powerful as a Silver Age Supergirl but with zero moral compuctions.
** [[ComicBook/Supergirl2005 Post-Crisis]] Dark Supergirl is a version of the former, but even nastier and violent.
** Superwoman (Lucy Lane) is another female with super-powers and complicated family issues. Nonetheless, she's an human with a super-powerful costume, whereas Supergirl is a Kryptonian with natural-born powers. And even though Supergirl stands up to her mother when she crosses one line, Superwoman would make anything to earn her father's approval, no matter how atrocious.
** Bizarro-Girl is Supergirl's imperfect clone. She's more of a backwards loony with a warped sense of morality than an evil twin, though.
** Overgirl is Supergirl's Nazi counterpart.

*** ''The [[ComicBook/UltimateMarvel Ultimate]] Galactus Trilogy'' takes this even further by making Red Guardian an ''explicit'' attempt to make a Soviet Captain America. He even has his own shield!

** Yet another Batman counterpart came in the pages of ''[[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]]'', with Prometheus; [[FreudianExcuse he was the child of gangsters who had been gunned down by the cops when he was a boy]], and his great physical fighting abilities were the result, not of training, but of [[PowersAsPrograms "recording" other people's abilities electronically]] and loading them into his brain with a cybernetic helmet. Oddly, though, he ''isn't'' a particularly Batman-focused villain, usually meeting up with the hero only as part of an attempt to take down the whole JLA.

* In the ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' series, Sonic has a direct evil counterpart in the form of Scourge the Hedgehog. Unlike Shadow, who often acts as a foil to Sonic, and Metal Sonic, which is a robot built to serve Dr. Eggman's diabolical purposes, Scourge is literally an evil counterpart: He is Sonic from a parallel dimension, where the protagonists and villains switch roles. In the early days of the comic, Scourge was simply known as "Anti-Sonic" and was identical to Sonic save for sunglasses, a black leather jacket, and a JerkAss attitude. More recently, Scourge has differentiated himself with a new moniker, a new green color, and a personality that is much, much more malicious than before.
** He, then, forces this on his Anti-Freedom Fighters, turning them into the Suppression Squad and even they just as bad. Princess Sally's counterpart, Alicia, is nothing more than a figurehead. Miles, Tails' counterpart, is cold, calculating and the ''real brains'' behind the team. Rotor's counterpart, Boomer, took his genius and used it on himself, turning himself into a cybernetic terror (which also makes him Bunnie's evil counterpart, as her counterpart, Buns, ends up becoming E-123 Omega's... not-so-destructive(?) counterpart). And Patch, Antoine's evil counterpart, is completely vain and in it for power.

The result was becoming green, getting some scars on his chest and a form of rebirth.
