** Shadow deserves a mention, the calm and pragmatic anti hero he was in games, has increased his pride and lack of hindsight in the comic series. Feels he constantly has to prove himself as the ultimate and gets mocked for his no nonsense attitude due to the comic making light on his serious methods towards threats. He always gets into situations in harsh and reckless ways especially against powerful enemies like Scourge or ADAM biting off more than he can chew. He goes into a [[BerserkButtom roaring rampage of revenge]] when he loses to those same threats and his pride crushed making him more a sore loser.

* The ''ComicBook/DoctorWhoTitan'' Eleventh Doctor comics depict the Master's TARDIS as '''always''' being a white classical column, to the point that the Doctor recognises it in a companion's visions and as a symbol on a flag. In fact, the Master's TARDIS only assumed that form on TV in the later episodes of "Logopolis" and the first episode of the next story "Castrovalva". However, the white column form had already been taken as the definitive one, for some reason, in {{Fanon}}, especially among Sexy/Lolita shippers. (Yes, [[CrackPairing it]] [[DatingCatwoman exists]].)

** Subverted with Invisible Woman who was originally called the Invisible Girl, and useless in a fight. She gained the ability to create force-fields, became a more competent fighter, took on the name Invisible Woman (after-all, Iceman and Spider-Man were supposed to be teenagers but never referred to as "boys") and has sometimes served as a more competent leader especially during such time as Reed was away.
* The Guardians Of The Universe in ''Franchise/GreenLantern'' have always been distant and aloof, but were once wise and respected, having created [[SpacePolice an organization of star-patrolling peacekeepers]] that has survived for eons. With each passing year though, they become more incompetent, single-minded, and corrupt, lying to their members, holding their own mysterious agendas, and constantly having their mistakes blow up in the faces and inevitably needing to be saved by the Earth Lanterns (and then clearly resenting the aid). One comic even had a Guardian admit he didn't remember why they started the Corp in the first place. By this point, it's a genuine curiosity how they got an organization as advanced and well-functioning as the Green Lanterns working outside of dumb luck.

** Hal Jordan himself has undergone this. He used to be a bit of a hothead who hated authority, but was otherwise a pretty normal guy. These days he's mostly written as a gigantic idiot who flies off into a fight at a moment's notice and bickers with authority no matter what.

* Northstar of Marvel's ''ComicBook/AlphaFlight'' (later the ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'') started off as an arrogant former athlete with an interest in politics and a devotion to his mentally ill sister. While John Byrne wasn't allowed to write Northstar as explicitly gay, he managed to work in a few hints. When Marvel finally got the bright idea to "out" Northstar... well, suddenly, it seemed like all that mature characterization vanished, and suddenly he was gay. Gay, gay, gay. ''So'' gay. Did he tell you how gay he is? Even worse, he went back to being a self-absorbed douche despite maturing over the course of Alpha Flight.
