** During ''Comicbook/TheKreeSkrullWar'', the government proposed rounding up aliens living on Earth and forcing them into camps. After ComicBook/NickFury allowed ComicBook/CaptainMarVell to escape capture, he justified his actions by saying that he remembered the Japanese American internment camps from UsefulNotes/WorldWar2, and vowed never to let something like that occur on U.S. soil ever again.

** Humans seem to be increasingly developing this sort of attitude toward aliens too now- including some superheroes- particularly after extraterrestrials repeated attempts to invade Earth.

* A TalkingAnimal versions of this trope occurs in ''ComicBook/{{Blacksad}}'': species isn't a problem in this world, but color is, as in literal fur color. The main two groups are Arctic Nation, [[ANaziByAnyOtherName a semi-religious association of white-coated animals with a stylized snowflake as a symbol]], and the Claws, a street gang of black-furred beasts. John Blacksad himself, the protagonist, is a ''black-and-white'' cat, so neither side likes him. Not much discussion is given to what they think of animals with fur colors other than black or white, though - the two groups mostly seem to focus on hating each other. In another Blacksad story there was similar tension between lizards and mammals.

* Exaggerated in ''ComicBook/{{Dinocorps}}'' with the Saurons. The Saurons are a group of dinosaurs who consider themselves to be "True-Bloods," and they hated how the other dinosaurs used so much technology to make their community thrive. [[BigBad Jarek]], the leader of the Saurons, sent an entire species into extinction simply because they weren't Saurons like him. When he wakes up in the present and discovers humans (or mammals as he calls them) have taken over, he ''immediately'' decides to kill them all too so he can rule the planet with fellow Saurons.

** In ''ComicBook/ElseworldsFinestSupergirlAndBatgirl'', Lex Luthor hates aliens. As far as he's concerned, killing a “xeno” isn't murder. Similarly, ''Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}'' is very bigoted against parahumans (to be fair, though, she didn’t trust normal people either, and at the end of the story she appears to have gotten over her prejudice a bit).

** Torquemada's Inquisitors are faced with a dilemma. Having suceeded only too well in "purifying" Earth and the immediate Galaxy of sentient aliens, with nobody else left to kill, they wonder how to keep the machine working and sustaining the hatred and xenophobic fear which keeps them in power. Then they have the brilliant idea to go back to basics and purify the human race still further by selecting a new hate-group. The new pogrom is against people with red hair and freckles. [[note]]This Lampshades the often-overlooked reality that any bureaucracy always finds reasons to perpetuate itself; the Nazi death camps would not have said "well done, job completed" and wound themselves up when there were no Jews left. They'd have moved on to other forms of hated "subhuman" who were next on the list, as was seen with gypsies. The nazis also had plans for Slavs and black people, whi were not seen as being so high a priority after Jews. They were simply timed out by My 1945.[[/note]]

* Done pretty [[{{Anvilicious}} blatantly]] in the ECComics story "[[http://asylums.insanejournal.com/scans_daily/54803.html Judgement Day]]", with its orange and blue robots. They are identical but for outer casings and programming, but the blue robots sit at the back of the bus, recharge in different stations, live in their own sector in town. The human evaluating the robot society does not let them progress to space until they can get over that, noting that Earth was like this once, and only owned the universe after humans learned to live together. In the last panel of the story [[spoiler: he takes off his helmet, revealing that he is black.]]

* In ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'', both Darksiders and Daysiders have a ton of predjudice against one another. Darksiders are quick to label the other side barbarians and don't seem interested in learning their culture, whereas Daysiders, especially Sand Masters, believe that Darksider ancestry poisons the bloodline irreparably.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'':
** New 52 ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' hated clones, believing that they inevitably turn evil, which proved unfortunate for Superboy, whose very existence revolted her - though it could be argued that she pitied him more than anything else. This turns out to be a learned prejudice, one held by Kryptonians at large due to the Kryptonian Clone Revolt. The events of ''Comicbook/HelOnEarth'' caused her to re-examine this prejudice and unlearn it, and when she runs into Superboy again in issue 38 and he's attacked, she immediately jumps to his defence.
** In the ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' arc, [[Franchise/GreenLantern Red Lantern]] Zilius Zox, a spherical alien, don't like a lot non-round aliens. He disliked Green Lantern B'ox instantly just because B'ox was a living polyhedron.

* ''ComicBook/HelOnEarth'':
** H'el, a Kryptonian, hates Superboy, a human/Kryptonian clone, with every fiber of his body. This is because Krypton used to use clones as servants until they revolted and nearly wrecked their planet.
** H'el also thinks Earth and every human on it is inferior to Krypton and Kryptonians. He doesn't care what price Earth has to pay in his [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong goal to ressurect Krypton]].



* Over the years, ComicBook/LexLuthor slowly morphed his hatred of Franchise/{{Superman}} into anti-alien human supremacism. In ''ComicBook/SupermanSecretOrigin'' he colludes with elements in the US armed forces with similar sentiments.

*** It got even worse during the "Divided We Fall"/"United We Stand" storyline when it stood revealed that mutants were actually created by the US Government trying to recreate the SuperSolider formula: not only were Nimrod-type Sentinels unleashed to wipe them out, the US started to fracture because of it.
