* In an issue of ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'', the mad scientist duo of T.O. Morrow and Professor Ivo creates a false superheroine, Tomorrow Woman, to carry a psionic bomb close enough to mindwipe the League. However, the gynoid slowly grows as a person, and at a point when the League is about to be destroyed by a monster, she dives in and detonates the charge, killing it and frying her systems. When a shaken Superman tries to help her, the dying robot invokes the trope.

Not to be confused with the remarkably similar, defensive stock phrase said when everyone in the room labels a character as the most likely culprit of some misdeed of which he's not (entirely) guilty by leveling him an accusing stare -- "Don't look at '''me!'''" rather than "Don't '''look''' at me!" -- which is... [[NotMeThisTime another trope entirely]]. Nor is it to be confused with the also similar stock phrase where the characters are trying to figure out an explanation for a confusing or mysterious situation, and one who is believed to have special insight, or simply intelligent enough to figure such things out is looked to, only to respond this way. It should also not be confused with a situation where the characters are trying to [[GotVolunteered single out a patsy]] to undertake [[WhoWillBellTheCat an unpleasant but necessary task]], leading the victim to offer this response.

response. Or the version someone says to express anger at another, which would be something like "Don't you even look at me!" (with "you" being optional).

ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, this is when someone doesn't like to be looked at, with the title being the StockPhrase you're most likely to hear them bellow to underline the point. Compared to HatesBeingTouched, this one tends to be a more temporary state of being, often triggered by a HeroicBSOD, transformation into a BodyHorror, or revealing a RedRightHand -- after all, it can be understandably difficult to write a character who actively seeks to go unnoticed. Such situations are often remedied with TheHero giving the afflicted LoveInterest a CooldownHug and telling her that [[UnderstandingBoyfriend he still loves her]], or that [[FreakinessShame her wings are beautiful]].
