* ''[[AngelsAndDemons Angels & Demons]]'' had the MagnificentBastard fly an anti-matter bomb away from Rome in a helicopter. He survives, JustAsPlanned. * ''[[Film/{{Superman}} Superman II]]'': Superman flies out into space with a hydrogen bomb so that when it detonates it won't harm the Earth. * ''Voyage Into Space''. At the end the giant robot flies out into space with Emperor Guillotine's ship to save the Earth. It's not clear whether he's destroyed or not.

* Mar-Vell from ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' does this in [[Recap/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroesS1E15FourFiveNine "459"]] by flying with a Nega-Bomb to outer space. He almost doesn't make it so Thor finishes the deed.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', the crew has to plant a bomb on a giant garbage ball that's on a collision course with Earth. Unfortunately, the Professor mounted the timer display on upside-down and set it for 15 seconds rather than 51 minutes. Bender grabs the bomb and throws it as far as he can into space, saving their lives but dooming the planet to smelly destruction. [[spoiler: Of course, they subsequently find another way to save the day.]]

* One of the early Ultimates issues had Galactus, now an hive mind composed of multiple probes, approach earth with the intent to kill, maim and eat it. One of the several plans put in motion by SHIELD was, in a rare inversion of the trope, a transdimensional portal built by Reed Richards, tapping into a very young alternate dimension who just underwent the Big Bang in order to use the massive energy against the swarm.

* In the climax of ''Literature/BlackSunday'', [[spoiler: Kabakov and Corley [[SternChase chase down the stolen blimp in a commandeered helicopter]]. Kabakov kills Dahlia, mortally wounds Lander, and damages the bomb's detonator with an SMG. Unfortunately, the blimp is still on course for the stadium, and Lander is able to light the backup fuse (an old-fashioned slow-burning type) before he dies. With minutes to spare, Kabakov jumps onto the top of the blimp and attaches a cable onto it, and they're able to tow it over the Atlantic before it detonates.]]

* The first volume of ''Comicbook/TheUltimates'' had Thor disposing of an alien bomb that would have destroyed the entire solar system by teleporting it to [[NorseMythology the wastes of Nastrond]], where its detonation won't cause any significant damage besides some small ripples in timespace. Included a humorous scene of Black Widow moaning that they were doomed, since she disbelieved Thor's claims of godhood and thus figured that he just teleported the bomb to another location on Earth.
