** There is also Brother Grimm, King of Eastwind, who antagonizes ComicBook/TheFlash and lusts after Flash's wife, Linda Park West. He has similar powers to the Queen of Fables, and can somehow detect and attack someone who is using SuperSpeed, making him a tough foe for Flash to face.
* ComicBook/RedSonja's enemy, the evil wizard Kulan Gath, attempted to conquer MarvelComics version of New York City in an issue of ''Marvel Team-Up'' in the 1970s. Spider-Man and Red Sonja (in Mary Jane Watson's body) managed to drive him back. He tried again in 2007, brainwashing the population and remaking the city as a bronze-age nightmare.

[[Film/MaidInManhattan Not involving J-Lo in any way]], unless she's playing the person doing it, a Mage in Manhattan situation is where an evil character from a MagicalLand enters our own with the intent of causing destruction. Hilarity ensues. VillainsBlendInBetter, but they ''do'' still want to TakeOverTheWorld, so such an appearance has a tendency to [[TheUnmasquedWorld blast any masquerade to pieces]].

Compare WelcomeToTheRealWorld, RefugeeFromTVLand, and AliensInCardiff (if they land in a less spectacular city). Usually involves SaveBothWorlds. Not to be confused with UrbanFantasy.

* A lift of this occurs in the ''{{Narnia}}'' prequel, ''The Magician's Nephew'' when the wicked Jadis (a.k.a. the White Witch) invades London (of roughly the same time period as ''The Story of the Amulet''). Or at least she tries. Magic is inherent to a dimension here, and so she has no power in our world, but does have SuperStrength. She threatens to invade our world in ''The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe'', but that's a clear bluff.

** Villainess the Queen of Fables is the WickedStepmother from ''Literature/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs''. The twist is that in TheDCU, (a [[{{Grimmification}} bloodier version of]]) the events of the fairytale [[AllMythsAreTrue actually happened]], but then Snow White used a magic book to RetGone the whole thing into fiction, so the Queen is also a sort of SealedEvilInACan. When the magic book is reopened, the Queen takes over Manhattan and becomes convinced that WonderWoman is Snow White.
