* One of the scariest and most effective instances of this trope occurred when Hydra and the Hand teamed up under [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy the Gorgon]] to target and kill low-powered but highly-skilled heroes, then resurrect them as Hand assassins. Their first target was ''Wolverine'', who tore through most of Marvel's New York heroes before he was brought down. One of his victims, [[spoiler: Northstar]] took years to get their brain unscrambled, and SHIELD had to resort to ''decapitating corpses'' to keep the Hand from getting at them.

* In the ''[[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Sonic The Hedgehog]]'' comics, this happens twice during the Iron Dominion arc: First, the Iron Queen uses her {{Magitek}} powers to take control of [[HollywoodCyborg Monkey Khan]] and use him to destroy the Dragon Kingdom Freedom Fighters. Then, she uses those powers to reprogram NICOLE and use her to effortlessly take over New Mobotropolis. Khan was released by the Queen when [[CruelMercy she didn't need him anymore]], and NICOLE was soon returned to normal by Sally (though she continued to [[ReverseMole pretend]] to be brainwashed for a while).

* Originally Terra from ''[[ComicBook/TeenTitans The New Teen Titans]]'' arc "The Judas Contract" was a pure example of an unapologetically evil and antagonistic [[TheMole mole]]. A flashback from a 2000s comic decided to give her some more backstory and {{retcon}}ned it so that ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}} had injected Terra with drugs to make her psychopathic, much like he later did with his daughter Ravager.

** Though he first had to be mentally manipulated and broken before he could be directly controlled. Also, it was more like Hypnosis since it Cloud's Weak Will that allowed him to be controlled like this in the first place.
