* The Nihilist in Super Unicorn's META-4 setting for ''TabletopGame/MutantsAndMasterminds'' was a devoutly religious man whose wife was convicted and executed for a crime she swore she didn't do. When he overhears a criminal boasting that he was behind the job, he thanked God and called upon all that was good, holy, and true in the universe to help him avenge his family’s slaughter. The criminal's gang beat him to death and left him hanging on a lamppost. Cursing a god who didn't answer him, he awoke as an undead killer, seeking to spread the pain he felt.

The twisted part is that [[spoiler:Gabriel still has God's blessing, being capable of utilizing both light and darkness.]]
