* In ''Comicbook/{{PS238}},'' the villain of the Las Vegas arc attempts to use her TouchTelepathy to MindControl [[InsufferableGenius Zodon]], leading to this. When [[FlyingBrick Julie]] touches them she gets sucked into the battle too. This turns out to be a turning point for her: her own buried self-confidence shows up and gives her a pep talk, allowing to her to not only help Zodon win the fight, but finally get over her [[YouAreNumberSix issues with her generic power set]] and embrace her heroic destiny.

* Comicbook/IncredibleHulk: During Paul Jenkins' run, one of Bruce Banner's Hulk personalities, the 'Beast', a near-mindless monster, threatens to take over completely, so Bruce journeys into his mind and recruits the three main Hulks - Savage Hulk, Joe Fixit, and the Professor - to defeat it on his/their home turf.

* Franchise/MarvelUniverse
** Comicbook/TheAvengers played with this one in the 2001 annual, involving Hank Pym's separate personalities (Goliath, the cold unfeeling reason, and Yellowjacket, the impulsive showoff) who hated each other's guts getting dumped into a psychic landscape that was supposed to represent the original's mind after they were physically separated into two people in the real world. Initially, they started fighting for control, even trying to force Janet (who was back together with him at the time) to choose which one would live. Only after they both accepted the previously ignored third aspect (the human combination of both) were they put back together, keeping him from dying.

** Issue #9 of ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan'' features a showdown between Otto Octavius and Peter Parker, [[spoiler:who, after his death in Ock's body in ASM #700, exists as a 'ghost' in his own body via all his memories given consciousness]]. Otto begins to [[spoiler:purge Peter's memories through one of his devices in order to get rid of him, but Peter fights back, forcing Otto to go in and eliminate Peter himself from his brain. Otto is victorious and wipes Peter from his mind. Or at least he believe this...]]
*** Averted in their rematch. Peter is ready for round two, but Otto simply gives up instead of fighting.
*** Again, more later, in ''ComicBook/DeadNoMoreTheCloneConspiracy''. Peter has regained his body and Otto need return to his old body (cloned by the Jackal). Thanks to the fact that his cloned body comes complete with Peter's memories, Doc Ock hops back in and battles Peter for control and wins.
** In ''Comicbook/XMen'', the only way to save a person infected by the Brood is to kill the parasite's mind; unless you are a very good telepath you won't be able to save yourself. HeroicResolve won't solve the matter--it is necessary for the help to be able to arrive in time in the first place. (Or, you need to be Wolverine. Or Rogue with Wolverine nearby.)
** ComicBook/{{X 23}} is drawn into one in ''The Killing Dream''. A demon attempting to recruit Laura to his service tells her that as a clone she has no soul. When she refuses and denies this accusation he fatally wounds [[spoiler: Julian]] to force her hand, offering to spare [[spoiler: him]] if she accepts a place as leader of his armies. Laura once again denies him, so the demon [[TakeAThirdOption offers her another option]]: Prove him wrong. When she agrees to this the demon drags her into a hellish landscape within her own mind, presenting her with images of all the death she has caused and will yet cause to break her will. However Laura encounters her inner self, who reveals that she wasn't ''born'' an emotionless killing machine but that it took the conscious effort of the Facility to break her. [[spoiler: This revelation, and the memory she is shown of defying her orders to spare the young son of Martin Sutter (actually the son of one of her creators, Zander Rice, through an affair with Sutter's wife) when sent to kill the entire Sutter family, shows Laura she ''is'' more than just a weapon and gives her the power to escape the demon's influence, saving both herself and Julian.]]
* Franchise/{{DCU}}
** The Reboot version of the ''ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHeroes'' had a memorable one, when [[PsychicPowers Saturn Girl]] enters [[IncredibleShrinkingMan Shrinking Violet's]] mind to help her free herself of the control of the cursed Emerald Eye of Ekron, which is using her body to attack the rest of the team.
** Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}:
*** In ''Comicbook/DemonSpawn'', Supergirl and one-time villain Nightflame fight into Supergirl's mind an illusory, hellish psychic landscape called Innerverse that represents Supergirl's dark side.
--->Finally, the drama within her reaches a fever pitch... thoughts are pushed and pulled back and forth within her mind at ever-increasing speed... and, at last, the landscape can take no more and erupts with fantastic fury...
*** In ''Superman Family #206: Strangers at the Heart’s Core'', Kara fights her old nemesis Lesla-Lar, who is trying to take over her mind. The battle takes place in Supergirl's head.
*** During the ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' storyline, an enemy called Sheko invaded Supergirl’s mind to read her memories and judge her, but a memory of Supergirl's mother Alura stopped her and forced her out of her daughter's mind.

Otto begins to [[spoiler:purge Peter's memories through one of his devices in order to get rid of him, but Peter fights back, forcing Otto to go in and eliminate Peter himself. In the Mindscape, Peter summons the memories of his friends and family to subdue Otto. But, Octavius, having looked back at Peter's memories for months, summons the memories of all his enemies, who "kill" Pete's friends, which erases his memories of them. Peter is horrified by his loss, but regains confidence and turns in the Amazing Spider-Man, and Otto follows by turning into the Superior Spider-Man. Both fight and look at the reasons why the other one fails at being Spider-Man; Peter discusses Otto's brutality, and Otto discusses Peter's ThouShaltNotKill rule and the indirect problems it caused. Otto wins by pointing out Peter's MomentOfWeakness - risking the life of a girl while Otto was performing brain surgery on her, so that Otto wouldn't get the tech to find Peter in Otto's brain. Peter is defeated and ashamed of himself. Otto declares that he is superior to Spidey and manages to successfully erase Peter from his brain.]]
