* [[ComicBook/{{Lucifer}} Lucifer]] has an interesting use of this trope. After creating his own cosmos (''not'' simply a dimension within the existing one, but a completely new one totally separate from [[{{God}} his Father's]] Creation,) Lucifer appears to the people he's allowed to move in as a horizon-spanning titan, lays down his one rule (worship nothing, not even him,) and informs them that they'll know if they displease him because the sky will turn black. As he says this he moves his hand behind the sun and grasps it in his palm. It's not totally clear whether this was a vision he induced in the watchers, or if he physically altered himself and his universe to make it literally possible; given his power within his new universe, either might be true. However, even if he literally did it, the symbolism usually applied to the gesture still apples; he is openly challenging God with his own Creation, and despite knowing that his opponent is omnipotent and omniscient, and having been directly told by the ArchangelMichael that God does not consider Lucifer to have moved outside His jurisdiction, Lucifer still continues to defy a power and reach for things that should be well beyond even him.
