* AHouseDivided: ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' started it, and the rift didn't really get fixed until ''ComicBook/{{Siege}}'' resulted Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor reuniting the Avengers.

** Wakanda is a borderline example, as it is a well-known place with UN representation, but its native technology and natural reserves (i.e. vibranium) aren't easily shared with anyone.

And when the truth about the Incursions comes out, they go and start it all over again, with ''ComicBook/CivilWarII'' making things worse... And it might not be until the end of ''ComicBook/SecretEmpire'' that the fences will be mended again. Not to mention all the instances of LetsYouAndHimFight, which don't fall in here because they technically between different houses (''Comicbook/AvengersVsXMen'' for instance).

* AffirmativeActionLegacy: While Marvel was a trailblazer in having multi-ethnic heroes (Black Panther being the first black hero in comics), there have been many successors to established characters who fit the bill, especially since ComicBook/MarvelNOW.

** Hydra controlling the USA under Steve Rogers' command as shown in ''Comicbook/SecretEmpire'' is a close contender too. A man appointed by the chief executive of the most powerful nation on Earth to be its head of security suddenly reveals himself to be the leader of a large Nazi terrorist organization, locks all space-bound heroes out of Earth thanks to an impenetrable forcefield around the Earth, and has Manhattan shrouded in a dome of darkness so that many of the Earth-bound heroes (most of them are based there, remember) cannot act to remove him from power. Inhumans are sent to concentration camps, other heroes are forced to go on the run so they can plot a counterattack without being caught, and entire nations are torn asunder as Captain America goes on a campaign to put a Cosmic Cube back together so he can rewrite history to make the Nazis win WWII (said Cosmic Cube being what turned him from the BigGood into the BigBad in the first place).



* DefiantToTheEnd: The Skrull impersonator of John Lennon, one of the allies of Captain Britains' MI-13, spent his last moments in life mocking the Skrull soldiers about their plan to invade the Earth before they shot him in the head. When Thanos becomes all powerful while wielding the Gauntlet, Captain America refuses to break in his belief that Thanos will never win, even as he is killed.

** Norman Osborn managed to pull this off at the end of Secret Invasion, by hiring Deadpool in the guise of Nick Fury to steal data on how to kill the Skrull Queen, which he did on live television after the real Fury and the Avengers did all the heavy lifting, turning him into a global hero. His influence was so great among the people, that he was able to take control of SHIELD and replace it, turn the public against heroes and get everyone to forget that he used to run around in green and purple tights throwing innocent bystanders off bridges to their deaths for laughs.

* ClonesArePeopleToo: This is the general mindset the Marvel Universe treats clones with. Spider-Man considers both Ben and Kaine his brothers, Wolverine actually adopted X-23, and most clones are treated as their own people, with their own minds, goals and personalities. There are some who consider them abominations, but this behavior is always portrayed as bigoted.

* GreaterScopeVillain: The Marvel Universe has the cosmic beings Death and Oblivion, who are incredibly powerful and exactly what they sound like. They tend to empower mortals to achieve their goals for them; Thanos and Maelstrom, respectively, are their favorite "heralds," each of whom is a universe-threatening Big Bad in his own right. The two cosmic beings have each been around for (in our time) decades, and have been directly battled only a handful of times.
