* Website/{{Superdickery}} derives most of its humor by posting a lot of these moments out of context, resulting in Superman coming off as a casual mass-murderer and [[KickTheDog dog kicker]].

* Way, way, ''way'' overdone in UsefuNotes/{{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} ''{{Franchise/Superman}}'' comics, to the point where Supes seemed more like some kind of sadist for putting his friends through these situations, even if they were fake. If you look at enough of them, you start to realize that, for many of them, there is ''no possible situation'' that could explain what you're seeing. [[VoodooShark Other than utter lunacy]], of course, because this is the '''SILVER AGE!'''

* This trope in Silver Age Superman covers is given an amusing nod in ''Masterpiece Comics'', a parody book that has famous literary works in the style of comic strips and comic books. The retelling of ''Literature/TheStranger'' has Superman standing in for Mersault, and the novel is told through a series of what look like Silver Age Covers. Thus, the dickish things Mersault does in the book are a close (if exagerated) parallel to the kind of things Superman would be shown doing on the cover.

* The cover of an issue of ''ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}'' showed guest-star Psylocke kicking her brother Captain Britain in the face! In actuality, they were sparring and came to the conclusion that their powers--his physical prowess and her telepathy--were evenly matched. It was actually a rather touching moment since it was the first time in years the twins were able to catch up.

* ''VideoGame/KirbysAdventure'' (NES) has King Dedede stealing the Star Rod and breaking it into seven pieces to hide all over Dreamland. Kirby tracks down the pieces of the MacGuffin, only to learn that [[spoiler: Dedede stole the Rod to keep it from Nightmare who corrupted the Fountain of Dreams and to protect Dreamland. [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot But he doesn't explain this to Kirby very well]] though it doesn't help that Dedede was bathing in the Fountain of Dreams when Kirby arrived making him look especially guilty]].

* [[ParodiedTrope Parodied]] in the end-of-episode OnTheNext sequence at the end of ''Series/ATouchOfCloth'' Part III. We see [[MrExposition Asap]] holding another member of the team hostage with a gun to their head. Another teammate tells him to stop, because it's [[LampshadeHanging 'out of character'.]] It should also be noted that the OnTheNext sequences [[RuleOfFunny always flat-out lie]] [[TrailersAlwaysLie about what's in the next part]], and Part III's sequence breaks the record for [[MakesJustAsMuchAsSenseInContext bizarre stuff happpening]], as it also features giant spaceships and angry ghost women.

* An interesting one was done in ''ComicBook/UltimateFantasticFour'', which shows Magneto standing over the broken and beaten bodies of the titular heroes. Doesn't seem like Superdickery at first glance since Ultimate Magneto is [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] [[KillEmAll mass murderer]], but the comic reveals that this is actually the Magneto of an alternate universe who is, like his mainstream 616 counterpart, more of a NobleDemon AntiHero DependingOnTheWriter. Turns out the Fantastic Four team he was defeating (though this scene does not actually happen in the comic) were their undead {{Evil Twin}}s from the ''ComicBook/MarvelZombies'' universe, so this was really a heroic Magneto defeating a group of very, very evil villains.
