** 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. This is where he christened himself as Scourge has differentiated himself with a new moniker, a new green color, the Hedgehog and a personality that is much, he was now much more malicious ambitious than before.

Subverted with Anti-Bunnie; she ended up becoming good (kinda) when she ended up contracting NIDS and her teammates left her to die. She was saved by Dr. Kintobar via a special mech suit (resembling Omega oddly enough) and she became his bodyguard as a result while now calling herself Buns.

** As he was originally a ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'' supporting character, one could argue Black Panther is the Good Counterpart of DoctorDoom. Both men are costumed, superpowered rulers of advanced high-tech nations with ties to the FF.

* [[RobotGirl Cyborgirl]] ([=LeTonya=] Charles) happens to be an evil version of ComicBook/{{Cyborg}}, as she had permanently damaged her body by overdosing on the drug Tar. But her aunt, who happened to be one of the scientists who repaired Victor Stone, saved her with [[WeCanRebuildHer powerful]] [[UnwillingRoboticization cybernetic implants]], hoping that this would reform her and give her a second chance in life. However, rather than use her newfound gifts for good, [=LeTonya=] chose to focus more on personal gain, essentially becoming [[RoboticPsychopath more machine than human]].

** This may not be quite so coincidental, as Creator/ChrisClaremont and JohnByrne were working on the ''Iron Fist'' title around the same time as their classic run on ''Comicbook/XMen''.

* "Except for an accident of circumstance, I could have been your Luke Skywalker, and he could have been me. After all, we were both farmboys who loved to fly." Baron Soontir Fel, the [[AcePilot best non-Vader pilot]] in the Empire, [[http://asylums.insanejournal.com/scans_daily/367889.html says this]] to Wedge Antilles after he's captured by [[ComicBook/XWingSeries Rogue Squadron]]. FarmBoy origins aside, he's actually closer to being the counterpart to Wedge, who also happens to be his brother-in-law. Fel is distinctly not evil; he's Imperial, which does put him on the "wrong" side, but he's not an evil man. He actually joins Rogue Squadron for a time, before disappearing and ending up as part of the [[HandOfThrawn Empire of the Hand]].

** This flip of alignments, of course, also leads to an inversion, as one of Scourge's opponents native to his own dimension is a good version of Dr. Eggman, Dr. Ivo Kintobor, a mild-mannered and kind-hearted inventor and veterinarian, who tries to help and protect all the creatures who usually fall victims to Scourge's rampages.
