* In [[UsefulNotes/TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks Pre-Crisis]] ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' comics, when Superman ''finally'' succeeds in enlarging the Bottle City of Kandor, the Kandorians choose to live on a Theatre/{{Brigadoon}}-style planet, which phases in and out of the universe at lengthy intervals.
* A conceit of ''{{Starlord}}'' was that it was a disguised training manual to allow humans to survive the imminent [[AlienInvasion invasion]] by the [[TheEmpire Interstellar Federation]], and was published and edited by a benevolent being named the Starlord. In the last issue before ''Starlord'' merged with ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'', the Starlord said he had trained humanity so well that the Federation was too scared to invade Earth, and so he was leaving to help other planets.

** Goku pulls this more than a few times. In his childhood, he leaves his friends several times to either train, to look for the 4-star Dragon Ball, or go after someone. He also leaves behind the people he saves like Suno and Upa, some who never see him again. At the end of the Cell Saga, Goku choses to stay dead since most of the villains in ''Z'' came to Earth because of him. ''GT'' ends with Goku disappearing for one-hundred years.
