* 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* In ''Franchise/{{Superman}}: Godfall'', the Kandorians are incredibly xenophobic and racist against all non-native Kandorians, especially Empireths, who are mutants with psychic powers as well as the typical Kryptonian powers under a yellow sun.

*** 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.

* ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}''. Hands down the [[TropeCodifier Trope Codifier]], where anti-mutant sentiment is used as a metaphor for racism (and homophobia), complete with their own slurs like 'Mutie', which is essentially the mutant equivalent of the N-word. Especially [[{{Anvilicious}} blatant]] in the second movie:

** FantasticRacism is so prominent in the X-men comics that they have several groups of {{Politically Incorrect Villain}}s in the form of the Friends of Humanity, [[TheFundamentalist the religiously-motivated]] Purifiers, and many more.

** The Red and Green Martians were bitter enemies as the two most populous and prominent people in the planet. The Greens were brutal savages who have assaulted the Red's domains and committed appalling atrocities. In the prequel series ''Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris'', when a Red Martian tyrant goes on a genocidal rampage against the Green tribes, few people disagree with his actions.
** The Holy Therns and the First-Born are predisposed to this trope since both of them they consider themselves a MasterRace of living gods, and look down on the the Red and Green people as nothing more than animals and savages. They have been at war for eras, so naturally they despise each other as they do people "of lower orders".

actions and fact ''condone'' him. Though its shown that genuinely honorable and benevolent do exist such as Tars Tarkas and his daughter Sola, they are treated as exception to the rule than the norm, and the hate against their people is not without justification since they are AlwaysChaoticEvil. Its wasn't until John Carter arrived on Mars that peace between the two peoples was possible, and even then, it was fragile at best.

Added DiffLines:

** Not limited to Mars either, [[OurVampiresAreDifferent the Vathek of Strio]], an vampire race of Saturn, has used their neighbors as slaves and blood farms. They are also highly xenophobic towards aliens, treating any Martians as animals and things.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/WarlordOfMars'' is so filled with racial tensions that almost no people gets along with each other, with the Red Martians in the receiving end of every other race, being treated as source of [[MadeASlave slave labor]] and/or [[ImAHumanitarian nourishment]].

** The Yellow Martians are a reclusive people that doesn't interact much with the outside world, but its revealed that they too intensely despise the Green Martians, having been nearly driven to extinction by them and forced to retreat to the North pole. Its mentioned that they used to practice slavery, using rebellious Red Martians as bait to hunt beasts.

* Mutants are also treated as sub-human in ''StrontiumDog'', to the point that the only way they can make a living is by {{Bounty Hunter}}ing.

** Perhaps the most terrifying thing about anti-Mutant sentiment in the Marvelverse is how easily it seems to reach '''ethnic cleansing''' levels of intensity. It has been repeatedly shown in Marvel, as early as ''ComicBook/GodLovesManKills'', that many anti-mutant members, particularly those like the Purifiers or the U-Men, are willing to murder '''mutant children''' for the "sin" of being mutants. There's a reason why, in ''Schism'', most of the students prefer to stay with Cyclops and learn how to fight, because, as their spokesperson notes, they live in a world where they went from "civilian" to "target" the moment their X-gene activated, so they had best learn to fight back.
