*** The Joker briefly had his own sidekick named Gaggy, who like Robin, was a former circus acrobat. He never caught on, but returned decades later as an enemy of HarleyQuinn and the ComicBook/GothamCitySirens.

* Axis Amerika was this to the ComicBook/AllStarSquadron, ironically modeled after the Golden Age/Earth-2 heroes (namely, Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Arrow, and Speedy) who vanished after the ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', with the only exception being Kamikaze, who simply was Imperial Japan's replacement for Tsunami. They soon meet their match with the Young All-Stars, who filled the shoes of the erased All-Stars. Before that, there was Der Zyklon, who was a Nazi super-speedster counterpart of the Flash and Johnny Quick.

* ComicBook/{{Sabretooth}} is portrayed as ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'s evil similar, with near identical powers and completely feral. And he's implied to be Wolverine's half-brother; if he is, then they've hated each other their entire lives. Interestingly however, both characters were introduced separately from each other, Wolverine first appeared (with slightly different powers than his X-Men debut) in the [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]] comic, while Sabretooth was introduced (with no powers at all and claws that were only part of his gloves) in the pages of ''[[ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]]''.

** Zod is as much an EvilCounterpart to Superman as he is to his father, Jor-El. While Superman has acclimated to Earths culture and can perfectly synergies the best aspects of his adopted planet and Krypton, Zod waxes nostalgia on his planets more violent and competitive past. Sporting a militaristic "might-makes-right" philosophy, he uses his tactical genius and yellow-sun powers to prop himself up over others and wants nothing more than to rule a new Krypton with an iron fist. Superman is a citizen who voluntarily uses his powers to help people and ennoble others, Zod is a soldier at heart and sees no point helping those that are weaker. Both call upon their heritage, Superman opts for an enlightened perspective instilled in him by Jor-El, Zod longs for the brutality of old Krypton.



** Zod is the EvilCounterpart to Superman's father, Jor-El.

** 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.
