* ComicBook/JudgeDredd's ''Democracy Now'' 1990s story line had the quote "When some creep's holding a knife to your throat, who do you want to see riding up...me - or your elected representative? Think about it." Fast forward to 2009 and the elected Mayor of London [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Boris Johnson]] saved a woman from a mugging that he witness as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boris_Johnson he cycled home]]. Since Mayor Of London comes with no 24 hour bodyguards or police escort it seems elected representatives are a better choice than coppers.

** ''ComicBook/FiendsOfTheEasternFront'': [[TheRenfield Corporal Cringu]] mentions how his vampiric master Captain Constanta has used his powers to fight in several historical wars against Rumania's enemies, including the Ottoman Empire. Then [[Film/DraculaUntold in 2014 a movie was released]] where Dracula fights the Ottoman army in exactly that way.

* Another hilarious moment caused by Electro's RaceLift comes from Mark Waid's ''ComicBook/{{Irredeemable}}'', where the character Volt complains about black men with electrical powers being a stereotype. At the time, this was referencing characters like ComicBook/BlackLightning and ComicBook/{{Static}}.

* Issue 3 of ''JLA: Year One'' (written in March 1998) has a moment that seems to be intended as a Funny Aneurysm Moment, due to being set in the past; ComicBook/TheFlash (Barry Allen) and Franchise/GreenLantern (Hal Jordan) have a heart-to-heart conversation about the life expectancies of superheroes, which ends with Hal assuring Barry that "I predict we'll both live to a ripe old age". At that point in continuity, both Hal and Barry were dead. However, these days that moment has reversed into Hilarious in Hindsight due to both having been brought back from the dead throughout the 2000's.

** During the iconic "Kang Dynasty" storyline from Busiek's run, Triathlon laments that he's probably gonna end up as one of those D-list Avengers nobody remembers, citing Mantis, Rage, and Deathcry as examples. While he was correct concerning himself, Mantis would later end up as one of the stars of ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2''.

** Creator/JoeQuesada once said the Classic andUltimate Marvel universes meeting would be a sign that Marvel had "officially run out of ideas." The makers of ''VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions'' didn't get this memo. Well, granted, they don't actually interact with each other, but still.

** When Thor needed a new identity in Creator/WaltSimonson's run, Nick Fury mentioned that he'd have to settle for an apartment in Brooklyn, since "Even {{SHIELD}} can't find nothin' in Manhattan." With prices in Brooklyn having skyrocketed in recent years thanks to gentrification, they'd be lucky to find a place there for Thor to live nowadays.

** In an issue of ''Avengers Solo'', Hawkeye criticized a ''Film/DirtyHarry''-style vigilante film by saying he longed for the days when a hero could save the day without killing the bad guys. In the ''Avengers'' films, Hawkeye kills people quite liberally, and is in fact described as a "Master assassin" by Iron Man at one point.
** Hawkeye's stance against killing in general. In the original comics, he was probably one of the Avengers who was most strongly opposed to the idea of using deadly force, and was extremely shaken after he accidentally killed Egghead in self defense. Cut to ''Comicbook/{{Civil War II}}'', where he [[spoiler: murders Bruce Banner in order to save the world from the Hulk, and is even described by Banner as being one of the few Avengers who could kill someone and then live with the guilt]].
