* Done hilariously in ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. When Dr. Milo, a high-ranking Cadmus employee, is told by his boss (Amanda Waller) he's fired, he at once pulls out a huge laser cannon and kills everyone else at the conference table. Of course, it's a fantasy and in real life he just meekly takes his pink slip [[spoiler: before releasing Doomsday as payback.]]
