** ''[[ComicBook/UltimateMarvel Ultimate Comics Avengers]]'' pulled this one out as for the backstory of the second [[TheWasp Wasp]]. Promising scientist, married to an activist, has a baby. Great life, right? Then the Red Skull shows up, because he's working for the side the husband is protesting against. The scientist, forced to choose between her husband and child, kills her husband, only for the Skull to toss her baby out a third story window, then allow his men to gangrape her. She ended up going into bioterrorism, before being caught by the US government, brain-chipped to make her comply with orders, and put on Fury's new black ops team.

** Subtly done with with Comicbook/{{X 23}}. She was no older than ''fifteen'' in ''Comicbook/{{NYX}}'', during which time she was a prostitute under a sadistic and violent pimp. As she was legally unable to provide consent to most, if not all of her Johns,[[note]]age of consent in New York City where she was living at the time is 17, while a teenager younger than 16 and older than 13 can legally have sex with someone no more than four years older than them[[/note]] ''and'' the fact that she was essentially forced into sexual slavery by her circumstances and Zebra Daddy's violent control over her (who it's implied ''also'' had sex with her), Laura was a victim of statutory rape.

And regardless of her age, [[TykeBomb her childhood]] pretty much insured that she wasn't mentally able to give consent.

Added DiffLines:

** Two rare male examples on ''Series/{{Loving}}'' and ''Series/TheBoldAndTheBeautiful''. Much like the "Karen" example, the men in question, Cooper Alden and Jake, respectively, suffered from disturbing flashbacks and an inability to be intimate with their girlfriends. Therapy helped Cooper remember that he'd been abused by a babysitter, and Jake by his uncle.

* Chie, also known as Shogun Iemitsu the Younger, gets this ''twice'' in ''Manga/{{Ooku}}: The Inner Chambers''. Not only was she a ChildByRape, when she decided to travel beyond the area in the castle she was permited to go while disguise, was raped by a palace servent who had no idea she was the acting shogun. [[spoiler:It eventually led to a decree that the first man that lied with an unmarried shogun would be put to death for 'causing harm to the shogun'.]]

** [[Comicbook/RobinSeries Tim Drake]] has had two of his girlfriends in this situation, Stephanie was [[NearRapeExperience almost-raped] by a caretaker, and Ariana AttemptedRape by a classmate. It left a traumatic impact on both of them -- with Ariana, she tried to have sex with Tim (even though they were too young for it) because she wanted to get rid of her unpleasant past with a new experience; and with Stephanie it made her vulnerable and constantly seeking for approval from men, which even [[TeenPregnancy caused her to get pregnant once]]. It's no wonder Tim's a CelibateHero -- after seeing what Ariana and Steph went through he probably wanted to atone for his gender or something.
