* Creator/RobertJordan's ''Literature/WheelOfTime'' series has the Horn of Valere, which can summon the greatest heroes of the setting's history to kick righteous amounts of ass. [[spoiler:The subversion being that the heroes obey whomever blew the horn -- good or evil -- until he dies. Double subverted when we find out that this actually isn't true; the heroes would never fight for the [[BigBad Dark One]] or his minions.]] Also the heroes aren't exactly sealed: they regularly get reincarnated on Earth and only the ones not currently alive are summoned.

* Similarly, ''The Twelve'' revealed that twelve other (much more obscure) Golden Age Marvel heroes were [[HumanPopsicle frozen in suspended animation]] by the Nazis to study later, but the Nazi scientists didn't get the chance because the war ended. They get reawakened in modern times, and the book mostly deals with how well they each adapt to the new world, or fail to do so.

* Back in the [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age,]] Fawcett Comics (best known for [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel)]] had a magician super-hero named Ibis the Invincible. He was an ancient Egyptian who had somehow wound up as a mummy, but then got reawakened in the present day in a museum. He then reawakened his mummified lady love (thanks to magic, they were revived as living breathing people, not movie-style mummies), and then he went on to become a very ComicStrip/MandrakeTheMagician-style super hero. He debuted in ''Whiz Comics'' #2, the very same issue that introduced Captain Marvel. Like the other Fawcett heroes, he's now owned by DCComics, and pops up once in a while in stories dealing with magic or [[{{Qurac}} the Middle East.]] [[/folder]]

* Zigzagged in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' where Raven meets a heroic wizard named Rorek of Nol who has been sealed into a book by an evil dragon called Malchior, and both befriends and begins working to free him. [[spoiler:Unfortunately the sealed Rorek actually ''is'' [[SealedEvilInACan the very evil]] Malchior who she [[NiceJobBreakingItHero ends up freeing]].]]

* The GodEmperor of Mankind. As much as there IS [[BlackAndGreyMorality "good"]] in [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} WH40k]], of course.
** Technically, he's on psychic-fueled life support in a coma. His death would mean his rebirth, but a lot of bad things would happen in the mean time. So he's Sealed Good In A Can, with the Can being as vital to humanity as the Good. What, you thought we were joking when we said that 40k is [[MemeticMutation GRIMDARK]]?
