* 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.

* ''ComicBook/CataclysmTheUltimatesLastStand'' features the heroes of the ''ComicBook/UltimateMarvel'' universe trying to stop Galactus after he appeared in their universe following the events of ''ComicBook/AgeOfUltron'' and a plot point shows [[spoiler: Ultimate!Reed Richards seeing his manstream counterpart's daughter, resolving to save the world.]] What caused the story to fall into this trope of the double whammy of [[spoiler: Ultimate!Reed going right back around and resuming being a villain and and the events of ''ComicBook/SecretWars2015'', which would see the destruction of the Ultimate Universe, meaning the heroes only delayed the inevitable.]]

* Issue #7 of ''ComicBook/PaperGirls'' (published in July 2016, just months before the US Presidential Election that year) features a discussion as to whether or not UsefulNotes/HillaryClinton --a woman-- could be elected president in modern-day America. Flash forward to November... she wasn't elected.

* May 6-7, 2015 were not good days for [[spoiler: ComicBook/WarMachine]] in any medium. The former saw the release of ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', which [[spoiler: saw he crippled following a stray blast from ComicBook/TheVision damaging his armor]] and the latter saw the release of the Free Comic Book Day special that kick starts ''ComicBook/CivilWarII'' [[spoiler: with his death by ComicBook/{{Thanos}} being what set things off.]]

* 9/11 times four, and this time not from Marvel: An issue of Comicbook/{{Superman}} sent [[TheDCU DC]] into a panic, when the [=LexCorp=] Towers (Metropolis' version of the Twin Towers) were shown to be in a state of near total collapse after being hit by an alien spaceship. [[http://911blogger.com/node/19407 The day that comic was due to hit newstands? September 12, 2001]]. DC assured retailers that they would be allowed a no-fault return for the issue, given the situation, and encouraged them to make use of it. Few, apparently, did.

* The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_shooting_of_Dallas_police_officers Dallas sniper attack]] occurred while ''Nighthawk'' Vol. 2 was in the midst of a storyline involving a black psychotic who was killing whites for crimes against blacks. The second issue (released about two weeks before the shooting) had the murderer set his sights on the police after hearing a newscast about a white officer who was found not guilty of killing an unarmed black youth.

* A major subplot of ''ComicBook/DarkVictory'' was [[TheDon Carmine Falcone]]'s son, Mario, trying to reform the family and legitimize it. Several comics before ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' followed up on his fate after the miniseries and revealed that after his breakdown at the end, he became the new head of the Falcone family, becoming every bit the criminal his father and sister were.
