* There was a story from Creator/PaulDini's run on ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' in which SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker impersonated a stage magician with a vast teen following. The press revealed that the real magician was dead. SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker uses a viral marketing campaign to tell his audience that they'll have one last show where they can see that he's not dead. Guess [[Creator/HeathLedger which actor]] passed away after this comic and printed and [[Film/TheDarkKnight what his last]] [[Film/TheImaginariumOfDoctorParnassus two films are]]...

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} has expressed a love for both the incarnation of Death and Bea Arthur. Now it's a little easier to decide.

** The comic ends with Spider Jerusalem degenerating under an incurable disease and about to end his life by putting a gun up under his chin. [[spoiler: It was actually a cigarette lighter. As it turned out, he was fine.]] A few years after the end of the comics, Spider's real-life inspiration HunterSThompson ended up doing pretty much the same thing.

** In a series of strips from the early 70s, Duke Harris, who's based on HunterSThompson, accidentally shoots his assistant. Nearly thirty years later, Thompson accidentally ''did'' shoot his assistant.

** One strip had Andy cutting the family's cable and the children are forced to watch ''Series/SesameStreet'' instead. Not so amusing after ''Sesame Street'' moved from PBS to cable channel HBO in January 2016.

* In ''ComicBook/TheUltimates 3'', Blob threatens to eat Wasp. At the time, this was just "witty" combat banter. (even if the joke amounted to "Ha ha! Get it? He eats a lot! Fatty.") Then ''{{Ultimatum}}'' arrived, [[{{Gorn}} and...]] [[http://www.thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/linkara/at4w/16466-ultimates-3-one-and-two Linkara put it this way.]]

* UltimateMarvel had a borderline example in ''ComicBook/UltimateXMen''. After explaining to Beast the true nature of a project ComicBook/NickFury had him working on, Bishop says that Beast's work meant that Nick Fury [[spoiler:wouldn't be executed for causing a mutant genocide.]] The "aneurysm" comes in the ''Ultimate Power'' miniseries, where Nick Fury is [[spoiler:imprisoned on the Earth of the Squadron Supreme for the deaths of millions.]]

** ''ComicBook/{{Zombo}}'': The President of Earth is Creator/DonaldTrump. He's a PresidentEvil shouting gibberish who constantly [[Series/TheApprentice fires everyone around him]]. This became less funny after Trump actually did run for U.S. President in 2016 (a possibility he had boasted about for several years prior) with many accusing him of nativism and authoritarian policies.

** In an issue of ''ComicBook/SheHulk'', Spider-Man jokingly suggested that J. Jonah Jameson hated him because he assumed he was black. When Miles Morales was announced, quite a few people, even prominent conservatives like Lou Dobbs and Creator/GlennBeck, attacked the character for being a supposedly being a disgusting example of [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad political correctness]] and other such things. Beck even tried to insinuate [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama Michelle Obama]] [[InsaneTrollLogic was responsible for Peter being killed and replaced with a black kid]].

* Issue #50 of the Marvel ''[[ComicBook/GIJoeARealAmericanHeroMarvel G.I. Joe]]'' comic (which came out in 1985) included the first issue of the spin-off title ''G.I. Joe: Special Missions''. This first issue revolved around the hijacking of a jetliner by a radical Trotskyist group. Not a far-fetched premise, given the frequency of airline hijackings in the mid-1980s. They even go through the motions of claiming they'll release hostages if demands are met. Then you find out the terrorists' real plan: to use the airliner in a kamikaze attack on the Kremlin to avenge the assassination of Trotsky by [[JosefStalin Stalin]]...

* In the editorial for a 2005 issue of the 2000AD stablemate ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd Megazine'' detailed the difficulty the editor (then Alan Barnes) had on deciding whether or not to run a reprint of a 1970s strip ''Charley's War'', a strip about the UsefulNotes/FirstWorldWar. The first page of the re-run started with a full page spread of a Zeppelin Raid on London, with frightened citizens running into a [[UsefulNotes/TheLondonUnderground Tube Station]] yelling "It'll be safe down there." To make matters worse the Editor recounted how this dilemma arose on the last day before the deadline, the 8th of July 2005. Ouch. He did, however, decide to run the strip.
