* ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' isn't ''quite'' as restrained in her use of heat vision as Big Blue or the Girl of Steel. When Satanna (mad scientist / surgeon) kidnaps her best friend to experiment on her, PG ''blasts her arm off''. She then tells the horrified Satanna that she can pick it up and reattach it ''after'' telling her where to find Terra.

* ** ''ComicBook/{{Bizarrogirl}}'''s eyes can fire freezing beams. She also has stone vision to contrast Supergirl's X-Ray vision, something that no other Bizarro has.

** Interestingly when ''ComicBook/{{Rogue}}'' [[PowerParasite takes]] Cycolps's power, she can turn the beams off and on with ease something Scott is unable to do.
** One of the CrowningMomentOfAwesome in the ''ComicBook/AstonishingXMen'' run was when Scott decided to let loose on a [[KillerRobot Sentinel]] that was wrecking everyone but instead of retreating to safety Cycolps stated "''I want this thing off my lawn''" what came next was [[http://i.imgur.com/BGMUhTG.jpg entire panel of just red]] until Scott puts his visor back on. Even Wolverine who normally disrespects Cyclops was humbled.

* ComicBook/MartianManhunter has his Martian Vision. The effect of which [[DependingOnTheWriter depends on the writer]], ranging from heat, disintegration or concussive force. And once, memorably, for making ice cream. Rather [[FridgeLoigic confusing]] since Manhuter is usually [[KillItWithFire weak to fire]] which is heat... but it seems all FlyingBrick(s) ''have'' to use eyebeams to hang tough with Superman.

** It's revealed in the ComicBook/New52, that Superman can hurt ''himself'' with his beams. Seen when Lex Luthor needed Supes's blood and Clark [[https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/scale_super/11127/111275532/5145891-machucasimesmo.jpg obliged]]
*** Makes you wonder what would [[EyeScream happen]] if Superman poked himself in the eyes while using heat vison.

** Scott Summers' optic blasts have a [[BlessedWithSuck drawback]] in the fact that he [[PowerIncontinence can't turn them off]], requiring him to constantly wear a protective visor, or ruby sunglasses for more casual occasions. Unlike most such characters, his EyeBeams are of concussive (pushing) force instead of heat (though some writers seem unaware of this), affectionately referred to as [[MemeticMutation PUNCHES FROM THE PUNCH DIMENSION]] by fans. As a result he is one of the few eye-beam heroes who can choose to merely knock you out by looking at you, as well as having the option to put holes in you. He's also a relatively rare character who has this power and is explicitly noted to be [[RequiredSecondaryPowers immune to the effects]], so even if a DeadlyDodging enemy tricks him into shooting himself it has no affect beyond possibly knocking him off his feet (and being really embarrassing).

* The extreme end of the trope may be ComicBook/{{Darkseid}}, whose "Omega Effect" (sometimes referred to as "Omega Beam"), at full power, removes anything it hits from existence, and can travel any path he desires to hit something, including warping through space and time. Darkseid can however use the Omega Effect for a multitude of different purposes.[[spoiler: In ''Comicbook/FinalCrisis'', he uses a variation of the "Omega Effect" called the "Omega Sanction", which he uses to condemn Franchise/{{Batman}} to [[FateWorseThanDeath be trapped in a cycle of death and rebirth, with each life worse than the last. Worse, when he reaches the present again, he'll have built up enough negative energy through all those lives to result in an EarthshatteringKaboom]].]]

** ComicBook/PostCrisis, Superman's use of heat vision changed markedly, as he was now a solar-powered superhero. Using heat vision came out of the same energy bank that all his other powers used, but at a very steep cost. Now heat vision was used sparingly or only once a battle. Really cutting loose with the beams now means that Supes is NOT in his happy place.
** Remember that bit in the cinematic trailer of DC Universe Online? He MELTED Black Adam's face off with only a guttural yell. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=H7Nf-m6WGl4#t=236 Scene in question]]
** In VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs he does it again to [[spoiler: Shazam]].
