* ''Fanfic/CoreLine'' has multiple Mega-Corporations, which sell all kinds of resources and hold their own private armies (and are one of the reasons the world has managed to rebuild itself as fast as it did), as well as some of them having their own CorporateSponsoredSuperhero teams. One of these is "The Champions", a sub-division of Stingray Industries, and its rivalry (mostly invoked by its competitors) with the Avengers Infinity (sponsored by Stark Industries) and the Justice League Unlimited (sponsored mostly by Wayne Enterprises) is a detail that occasionally pops up (and is the cause of many a headache, even when people try to invoke "United We Stand (Better)") within the stories.

* Marvel's ''[[{{Marvel 2099}} 2099]]'' titles had the world run by Mega Corps, namely Alchemax. How bad were things, you ask? The person that eventually overthrew their control and ushered in a fairer regime was none other than ''Doctor Doom''. Alchemax eventually appears in the 616-verse as well and is just as nasty in the present day as it is in 2099. Probably because two of its three founders are Tiberius Stone and [[spoiler:Norman Osborn]], both utterly amoral villains with no conscience or empathy.
