* The {{Chessmaster}} in the ''[[ComicBook/TwoThousandAD 2000 AD]]'' strip ''Caballistics, Inc.'' is one Ethan Kostabi, an eccentric 1970s former rock star [[FictionalCounterpart strongly resembling]] Music/DavidBowie. Whenever Kostabi's success as a musician is described, comparisons are always made to Bowie, and Bowie is always described as having been greatly inferior—having sold fewer albums and having "scavenged a career out of the discarded fads and influences that Ethan left in his wake".

* Reed Richards of ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' is widely regarded as the smartest human in the universe. Even his enemies- The Wizard, The Mad Thinker, The Mole Man and others- have great respect for his intellect, if only because they think he is the one man on Earth capable of appreciating what they have done. But then we get SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom, the one man on the entire Franchise/MarvelUniverse who thinks Reed is a hack, a fraud, and a complete and utter moron, and is fairly fond of reminding everyone in earshot of his feelings Every. Single. Issue.

** Also involving Reed: The heroes who have used the name ComicBook/AntMan get their powers from mass-shifting "Pym Particles" discovered (and named) by the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym. At one point in the ''ComicBook/DarkReign'' era, in front of both of their respective teams, Reed makes the claim that he knows more about Pym Particles than Pym does. Hank's response?
