* After the Resonance Cascade in ''VideoGame/HalfLife1'', a special forces group of the [[YanksWithTanks United States military]] (the Hazardous Environment Containment Unit) arrives to clean up the situation--not only by stopping the Xen invasion, but by "silencing" all Black Mesa personnel with lethal force in order to keep knowledge of the incident secret. While some of the soldiers are sociopathic and most carry out their orders without complaint, one Marine in "On A Rail" makes it clear killing civilians is ''not'' what he signed on for.

* StrawFeminist Superia was able to recruit what was likely the largest team of superhuman criminals to date by sponsoring a pleasure cruise for female super-criminals which would transport them to the island of Femizonia. Most assumed this was a free vacation, and when ComicBook/CaptainAmerica and Paladin showed up, the heroes were curb-stomped with ease. Unfortunately for Superia, her army wasn't all-too loyal when they discovered her true plans (she intended to launch missiles from Femizonia which would infect the Earth with a biological weapon designed to sterilize all females. Surrounded by the island's protective dome, Superia and her followers would be unaffected, thereby granting them a powerful bargaining position over the rest of the planet). Of the fifty villains recruited for the Feminzons, only ''three'' continued to support her after that (all three of them her lieutenants, three others abandoning her and/or siding with the heroes), and the plan was crushed.
