** It was originally Hydrobase, an artificial island originally stationed just outside of New York Harbor in the Atlantic. Once the base of operations of ''ComicBook/SubMariner'' foe Dr. Hydro, it became the longtime home base for Dr. Walter Newell, the government operative Stingray. He later leased out space on the island to the Avengers for an airfield after the FAA banned them from flying their Quinjets through Manhattan, and it even served as their temporary headquarters after the Masters of Evil had trashed the original Avengers Mansion, until ComicBook/DoctorDoom's robots sunk the island. It was later salvaged by Namor and Stingray, and eventually relocated to the Pacific, off the coast of California, by the time Sunspot acquired it.
** A.I.M. previously had an island base simply known as A.I.M. Island. They later conquered the small Caribbean island of Boca Caliente. [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]] tried to get the US government to liberate Boca Caliente from A.I.M., to no avail.
* Cobra had a temporary island base in the first issue of ''[[ComicBook/GIJoeARealAmericanHeroMarvel G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero]]'', and later gained a larger and more permanent one in international waters in the Gulf of Mexico by having the Joes help them ''create'' it. Specifically, they tricked the Joes into detonating a fault line at just the right location to cause enough upheaval to create the island. Cobra even had an army of laywers standing by at the UN to lay their sovereign claim to the newly-formed Cobra Island. It serves as the focal point for several stories, including the original [[EnemyCivilWar Cobra Civil War]].
* In ''ComicBook/TheTransformers'', Shockwave had the Decepticons construct an artificial island base off the coast of Florida, the surface of which concealed the fact that it was also a fully-functional space cruiser. Ratbat later turned the island into a vacation resort called Club Con, even going so far as to having [[TheStarscream Starscream]] appear in a television commercial for the resort. The base/ship was destroyed when the [[AGodAmI Underbase-empowered Starscream]] crashed Scorponok's ship into it.

* Cobra Island in ''WesternAnimation/GIJoe''.
''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'' was introduced in the two-part episode "There's No Place Like Springfield", where the titular town was staged for a FakedRipVanWinkle plot to get Shipwreck to reveal a top-secret formula he'd been entrusted with. In the second season, it became Cobra's permanent base of operations with the completion of the Terrordrome.
* Drakken [[MadScientist Dr. Drakken]] and the Seniors both have island bases in ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''.''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''. The Seniors' island was originally just their home, but [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Ron kept comparing it to a typical]] SupervillainLair, inadvertently giving [[EccentricMillionaire Señor Senior, Sr.]] the idea to [[CreateYourOwnVillain take up supervillainy as a hobby]]. It didn't help that the ginormous sunlamp for [[TheDandy Señor Senior, Jr.]] had been causing blackouts across mainland Europe, which is what brought the Seniors to Kim and Ron's attention in the first place. Drakken has several other lairs, but most of them seem to be temporary, as he keeps coming back to his island base.

* ''Literature/{{Swellhead}}''. The protagonists are sent to investigate strange events on the long-deserted and distant island of Skerra, somewhere on the ill-defined border between Britain and Island which for historical reasons even has a monarchy (not that she's ever set foot on the island before now) and is therefore an independent nation. Turns out an ElaborateUndergroundBase has been discovered on Skerra, despite the sheer impossibility of constructing one without vast resources and public knowledge. One which, as they delve further into it, looks increasingly like a classic SupervillainLair... [[spoiler:It turns out the base was constructed by a supervillain in an AlternateUniverse, which is encroaching into our reality.]]
