* This is fairly common for {{Alternate Universe}}s in general, but ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse is a great MarvelComics example; many of the mainstream continuity's villains are either slightly less vile villains (Mister Sinister, for example, who [[EvenEvilHasStandards is opposed to Apocalypse's genocidal desires]]), or outright heroes.

** The Catwoman of Earth-Two, an alternate universe in ''TheDCU'', also turned over a new leaf when she recovered from amnesia. [[AmnesiacDissonance Horrified]], she was willing to go to jail for the crimes she had committed. When Franchise/{{Batman}} sprung her from jail to help him, she [[{{Retcon}} revealed]] that she had lied; she had actually chosen to be a villain and then chosen to reform because she realized that it was her only chance for a normal life (whereupon they fell in love, got married, and had a daughter, Huntress).

** Overdrive from ''ComicBook/SuperiorFoesOfSpiderMan'' is GenreSavvy enough that this trope is his entire reason for being a costumed villain. He grew up as a young boy who idolized superheroes, and reasoned that the quickest way to become an Avenger would be to start off as a villain and then eventually reform and fight alongside his childhood heroes.

* During the ''Comicbook/{{Siege}}'' event, Loki realizes that he's been making a massive mistake: He wanted to make Asgard greater than ever, but let his hatred of Thor get in the way of that. [[spoiler: In a last ditch effort to stop the Void, he uses the Norn stones to empower the New Avengers to give them a fighting chance. When this doesn't work, Loki takes the full blunt of the Void, [[RedemptionEqualsDeath dying while tearfully apologizing to Thor]]. Fourtunately, Thor brings him back to life,]] now as a child with no memory of his evil deeds or his previous life beyond the age of twelve, but still has the guilt of what happened, with Thor's encouragement he becomes a kid hero, and performs ''multiple'' [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments Of Awesome]].
** [[spoiler:However, it turns out original Loki apparently couldn't resist the opportunity to screw his next incarnation over, creating a copy of his personality that killed kid!Loki - [[Comicbook/YoungAvengers resulting in]] a Loki who's [[Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard neither of their predecessors]], haunted by what they did to their kid-self.]]
