* Thomas Elliot, a.k.a. Hush, dedicated himself to destroying Bruce Wayne out of sheer envy. The way he sees it, Bruce was "lucky" that his parents died when he was a kid (and getting all of their money) -- Thomas, on the other hand, had to go to all of the trouble of cutting his parents' car's brakelines and later smothering his horrible mother to get access to their money. Thomas, of course, being an amoral sociopath, doesn't grasp that Bruce's parents might be different from his parents, making this a rare case of someone consumed by insane jealousy not because of what someone else has done or accomplished, but literally for ''NO REASON AT ALL.''

* ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'': Loki is Marvel's personification of this trope to the point that he has actual green eyes. His constant envy of his elder brother, Thor and his need for love from his father warp him into a villain. Most of his mischief is about getting attention and love. His history as an abused child doesn't help. Neither did Odin's blatant favoritism towards Thor. Odin adopted Loki out of obligation and guilt. Ironically he creates his own destruction by doing so.
* In the ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'', this is the reason Comicbook/DoctorDoom hates Mr. Fantastic. He can't stand the fact that Reed Richards is smarter than him, and has beaten Doom every time he has tried to kill Reed and/or TakeOverTheWorld. In addition to those few extra IQ points, Reed also has everything else Doom doesn't have, from worldwide respect all the way down to unmarred good looks.

* Haazen from ''ComicBook/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' (the comics) ''is'' this trope -- he was consumed years ago by his jealousy of his friend (and later employer) Barrison Draay's wealth, good looks, talent with the Force, and luck in love with the girl Haazen was also sweet on. This lead him to ultimately arrange Barrison's assassination and then spend ''decades'' concocting an EvilPlan that would pervert everything Barrison stood for as well as his family name, while ending with Haazen ruling the galaxy from behind the scenes. [[MagnificentBastard And if would have worked]] if Zayne Carrick hadn't convinced [[UnwittingPawn Barrison's son Lucien]] that this wasn't what his father would have wanted.

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'s first ArchEnemy was Lesla-Lar, an accomplished Kandorian scientist who began antagonizing Kara because she was jealous of the praise that people of Earth gave Supergirl.
-->'''Lesla-Lar:''' I envy and hate her! The honors that I, Lesla-Lar, have earned in Kandor as a scientific genius are as nothing compared to the acclaim the people of Earth will give Supergirl when they learn of her existence!

* Why does ComicBook/LexLuthor hate ComicBook/{{Superman}}? Because Lex worked his whole life to gain power and respect, while Superman was handed his powers by a quirk of genetics and won the hearts of Metropolis without any effort at all. Confirmed in ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'', wherein Lex is bound by Franchise/WonderWoman's Lasso of Truth and is forced to admit to himself and everyone around him that: "The truth is... I really want to be Superman." It also probably isn't a coincidence that modern portrayals of Lex in the comics often have green eyes.
