Added DiffLines:

* Praxton in ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'' is an extraordinary {{Jerkass}}, a FantasyForbiddingFather and a classist, but defied Dayside's FantasticRacism by fathering a child with a Darksider, is genuinely happy to make his son a Mastrell and would likely rebuild his relationship with Kenton if it wasn't for an enemy attack necessiting a DyingMomentOfAwesome to save his kid.

* ComicBook/LoisLane. She's gruff, hard-nosed, sharp-tongued, quick-tempered, bossy, rude, and more than a little bullying; but she's deeply compassionate, has unshakable integrity, is fiercely loyal to her friends and husband, and loves her job because it allows her to help people and fight for truth, justice, and the American Way. And kind, laid-back Clark Kent's attraction to her has strong (though gender-flipped) AllGirlsWantBadBoys vibes.

* Doctor Doom loves pushing people around and launching attacks against his enemies (namely everybody who's not him) but has warmth for his citizenry particularly the children of Latveria. In a truly shocking moment, he forgave past grudges and aided the Invisible Woman with her recent birth, saving both Sue and her baby from certain death. As such, the daughter, Valeria, is held as an endeared one under his personal protection and allowed unrestricted audience, while the child returns his affection and refers to him informally as Uncle Doom. Awwwwww. (Warning: This is most definitely a DependingOnTheWriter quality.)

* ComicBook/{{TheSandman}} is notoriously insensitive, vindictive and self-centered, and his treatment of former lovers can be downright appaling. But after being imprisoned, he is more than willing to make amends (at least whenever someone calls him out for his cruelties).

* The ComicBook/{{New52}} version of [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Billy Batson]] is pretty much this, though the 'heart of gold' part is buried underneath a lot of cynicism. It's something of a [[BrokenBase Base Breaker]] for fans use to seeing him as TheCape.

to:

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'':
** Modern versions of Supergirl tend to put an emphasis on her being a teenager who has seen her family dying and her home exploding before being trapped in a strange, -comparatively speaking- primitive world and gifted with powers beyond understanding. So, she's moody, snappy, inmature, rude and short-tempered for a while until she outgrows her loneliness and anger management issues. However, even at her worst she's a good girl deep-down who tries to help people and doesn't want anybody to get hurt.
** In the ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' storyline her anger was out-of-control and she was abrasive and often plainly rude. Even so, she tried to be considerate to others, apologized when she screwed something up and chided one of her teammates for not being tactful enough.

* [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Scrooge McDuck]], who pretends to be more of a jerk than he really is. On the rare occasion that he has a genuine charitable impulse, he attempts to hide it from everybody.

* [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards]], who acts like an [[InsufferableGenius arrogant, insensitive dick]] most of the time, but [[PapaWolf loves his children]], [[BattleCouple wife]] and [[TrueCompanions adoptive family]] dearly, has an extremely strong and idealistic moral compass, and suffers a great deal of guilt over the accident that ruined the Four's normal lives.

* Reed Richards from ''ComicBook/UltimateFantasticFour'' means well... sort of, but there are moments where he's incredibly arrogant and bad tempered. [[spoiler:Becomes a full on JerkWithAHeartOfJerk when he turns evil]].

* From the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'':
** This is a frequent characterization of {{Wolverine}}. He's always talking back to authority figures, even if he agrees with their choices, will regularly get into fight with friends with next to no provocation (at one point trying to kill Colossus for ''daring'' to save his life) and is unapologetic in his killing, few cases aside, because he thinks, no matter what people say, it's what they want from him. However, he is deeply loyal to his friends, and will go out of his way to get his own hands dirty so no one else has to.

* J. Jonah Jameson from the ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}'' comics is another good example. Sure, he's short-tempered, tight-fisted, and an often obnoxious loudmouth, but he's also been shown as a tireless crusader supporting everything from labor union rights to mutant rights, going after organized crime figures and corrupt politicians despite repeated attempts on his life, and discreetly supporting various charities and social projects, and even hiring a good lawyer for Peter Parker when Parker was falsely accused of murder. He's been pretty much consistently portrayed as a social liberal whose ideals are wrapped in civil liberty and constitutional rights. despite the fact that he's a mean-spirited douche to the people around him.

** JJ was once offered a deal: if he stopped bashing Spidey every time he needed an editorial, he'd get an exclusivity deal with the ComicBook/NewAvengers. He even got to hear ''[[CaptainAmerica Captain Fucking America]]'' tell him Spidey was a hero rather than a monster. His response? After shaking hands on the deal, he promptly went back to not only committing libel, but making accusations of bribery and digging up things like "wanted murderer" (Wolverine), "terrorist" (Spider-Woman) and "convicted drug dealer" (Luke Cage, who was framed and ''exonerated'').
