* The end of ''ComicBook/KickAss'' Volume 1, where Chris sets up his AvengingTheVillain story-line by quoting SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, with volume 2 crossing the MoralEventHorizon by [[spoiler:causing a mass shoot-out in a suburban area]]. The Aurora Theater shootings make this uncomfortable to some. The fact that he started with [[spoiler:a group of children]] makes it [[FromBadToWorse even worse after the Newtown shootings]].

** The arc that introduces Victor has Nico vowing to rip his damn heart out if it ever appears that he's going to become [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Victorious]].

His last thought is that at least he never became Victorious.

* Several people scoffed at the idea of Superman's archenemy ComicBook/LexLuthor being a PresidentEvil, given that Luthor post-Crisis was an ObviouslyEvil CorruptCorporateExecutive. Then came 2016 and UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump won the presidency, despite a well-documented history of making derogatory comments about women, minorities, the press, and the disabled.
