Added DiffLines:

* In some early ''ComicStrip/BabyBlues'' strips, Wanda was shown to be a fan of Mel Gibson (or rather, [[MrFanservice his buns]]). Obviously, this was before his anti-Semetic rant and verbal abuse toward his girlfriend occurred.

* ''ComicBook/ActionComics'' #309 features Superman revealing his identity to President Kennedy, which is sad for two reasons:
** The issue was released the week after Kennedy was assassinated.
** Superman tells Kennedy "If I can't trust the '''President of the United States''', who '''can''' I trust?" Flash forward to Watergate...

* In ''ComicBook/TheInfinityGauntlet'', {{Thanos}} using the titular gauntlet causes all sorts of earthquakes to happen all over Earth. One of those buries Japan in the ocean. Makes one cringe after a similar disaster happened to Japan in 2011.

*** More of an aversion, considering Charlie was probably worried that the next issue would be about ''WorldWarIII''.

* [[http://bigthink.com/ideas/21279 This]] political cartoon from 1870, using anthromorphisised countries to depict the situation of Europe before UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne. Now, notice how Germany's hand is resting on Belgium...

* Another ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' example: In the 1990s, longtime couple Cyclops and Jean Grey finally tied the knot. Marvel released a one-shot special, ''The Wedding Album'' and included random autolog messages from the reception. One message comes from [[RefugeeFromTVLand Shatterstar]], who predicts the marriage won't last. Fast-forward about a decade, and Marvel [[DroppedABridgeOnHim dropping a bridge]] on Jean in favor of Cyclops leaving his wife for a rival out of left field, Emma Frost.

* An issue of ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'', written by Matt Fraction, [[WriterOnBoard went on a tangent about how perfect and more accepting California]] was to mutants compared to the rest of the country. At this point it's clear that Fraction was using mutants as a metaphor/symbolism for homosexuality. Cue Proposition 8 being passed in that state.

* There's an early ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' comic in which a stealth jet is going to be flown into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. Fortunately, ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} gets on top of the plane, carves his way in, and pulls it up at the very last second. Reading this post 9/11 made it less of a fun action scene and more a harsh reminder that we don't have super-heroes in the real world.

to:

* In ''ComicBook/IronMan #231'', Marcy Pearson suggests that should choose a less controversial spokesperson to replace Iron Man, like Bill Cosby. It's a pretty wince-inducing line with Cosby's later sexual assault charges.

* A literal example occurred in ''TheFarSide'': a strip involving DickClark aging 200 years in 30 seconds on national TV. That's a pretty accurate description of what has happened to him since his stroke back in 2004. And now that he's dead at 82, it's even worse.

* In an early ''{{Zits}}'' strip Jeremy bemoans the that his generation doesn't have an epic, "where were you?" moment like the Kennedy assassination. Then came September 11th...

** 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.
