* ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'': Doomsday was genetically engineered to be the ultimate warrior, courtesy of genetic experiments that made it capable of [[LamarckWasRight Lamarckian evolution]]. The creators succeeded, and were wiped out by their own creation, which was so traumatized by the GeneticMemory of countless deaths that [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds it had come to view all other life as a terrifying threat to its own survival]]. On top of it all, it turns out that said creators were so focused on the experiments that they never actually thought about what to do once their experiment actually worked.
* In ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'', ComicBook/LexLuthor manages to gain Superman's abilities for 24 hours in order to place himself on the Man Of Steel's level. However, the rush of sensory data and enhanced perspective has an unexpected side-effect - seeing the world the way Superman sees it makes him (at least temporarily) rise to Superman's level in the empathic and moral sense, too.

* ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}:
** In one story, Bizarro, the imperfect clone of Superman, decides to use the duplicator that created him on himself, creating a Superman that looks ''exactly'' like the man of steel. This went beyond mere looks, however; While the regular Bizarro was immune to Krytonite, the new clone was such a perfect physical copy of Superman that he melted when exposed to Kryptonite radiation. This was lampshaded by the original Superman.

* In the ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' storyline, Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} fought Comicbook/{{Lobo}}. Knowing he couldn't go toe-to-toe with a Kryptonian, Lobo tried to piss her off so she was so irrationally angry that she couldn't fight effectively. He succeeded and he drove her mad. He drove her so mad that she flew off the handle and crushed him like a bug.

Rather than have something [[DidntSeeThatComing unexpected]] happen that sabotages the program, the researchers have everything proceed in an orderly fashion. The results are everything they hoped for; ''better,'' in fact. Unfortunately, they've succeeded '''too''' well, and it's this success that dooms them. Either it turns out to be too intense, too powerful, or they didn't fully consider the consequences of what they wanted to do. Or maybe they just made an awesome stealth device...[[UselessUsefulStealth that they can't find because they can't see it]].
