* Franchise/{{Superman}}: Clark Kent and Lois Lane acted this way toward Lor-Zod, son of General Zod -one of the worst enemies of Superman- and his henchwoman Ursa. Everyone else -including his abusive birth parents, Comicbook/LexLuthor and the USA Government- wanted to capture him and control him. Lois and Clark adopted him and raised him with the name of Christopher "Chris" Kent. Chris eventually became the hero "Nightwing" -no THAT Comicbook/{{Nightwing}}, although both boys took his codenames from the same Kryptonian mythological being- and fought alongside his adoptive father and his cousin Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}.
* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}: Subverted with Post-Crisis Kara Zor-El. An early story stated that her father trained her to be a weapon, and Superman -with aid of Batman and Franchise/WonderWoman- took her in and acted this way toward her. However her abusive father was eventually retconned as a hallucination caused by Kryptonite poisoning when the real Zor-El showed up and turned out to be a pretty nice guy.

* [[WarchildSeries Cairo Azarcon]] was captured as a child by BigBad Falcone, and raised as a {{Tykebomb}}. He's found and rescued in his late teens by a SpaceMarine. It takes a few years, but Azarcon eventually assimilates into [=EarthHub=] society...well, more or less.

Added DiffLines:

* [[Literature/TheRedVixenAdventures The Red Vixen]] attempted this with Alinadar after capturing her. The results were mixed. Ali ends up better socialized, but until she formed a relationship with Sallivera, she still mostly saw herself as a slave to be commanded.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[FanFic/{{Bird}} Bird]]'' features this trope heavily in Taylor's efforts to make friends in Alchemilla asylum. She starts with [[PowerIncontinence Burnscar]] and works from there. It helps that her powers allow her to perceive the [[BrokenBird true natures]] of charaters that might seem too violent or dangerous to be worth the effort otherwise.
