* An issue of ''[[Franchise/{{Batman}} Batman and Robin]]'' shows Robin preparing to decapitate Batman with a giant sword. The issue is even called "Batman vs. Robin." [[spoiler:And it does happen! In one panel. Then Robin has a pre-emptive MyGodWhatHaveIDone and freaks out.]] ** Actually, he's [[spoiler:fighting off the mind control that his mother implanted into his spine after he was injured]]

*** Exaggerate? Some of the covers flat-out ''lied''. "The Miracle of Thirsty Thursday"'s cover shows Metropolis citizens dying of thirst whilst Superman stands before a gushing fire hydrant and explicitly denies water to everyone. Of course, a thoughtful reader may assume that the clarifying context is that the water is in some way contaminated and that Superman is protecting them. In this case, however, the "context" is that the cover is a lie: in the actual story, citizens of Metropolis are affected by a serum that creates an ''aversion'' to water, and Superman has to come up with a means to make them drink.

** The Series 9 premiere "The Magician's Apprentice" ends with the Twelfth Doctor pushed to the DespairEventHorizon by [[spoiler: Clara, Missy, ''and'' the TARDIS' extermination]] and thus ready to kill [[spoiler: Davros -- ''as a young boy'']]. Even before the second part, "The Witch's Familiar", aired, virtually the entire fanbase knew ''this'' was going to turn out to be more than it initially appeared, and the cliffhanger was ''how'' it would be so.

** The {{Cliffhanger}} of the penultimate episode of Series 9, "Heaven Sent", has the Doctor, coming off of a TraumaCongaLine, claiming that [[spoiler: he is the Hybrid of a Gallifreyan prophecy destined to conquer the planet and stand in its ruins]], which if true, both turns him into a menace ''and'' severely alters his backstory and nature because [[spoiler: it means he's only half-Gallifreyan]]. The trailers for the episode that followed, "Hell Bent", didn't contradict this. But in the actual episode, the trope is played with. On the one hand, [[spoiler: he was referring to Ashildr/Me being the Hybrid via Ambiguous Syntax, assuming she's it because the half-human, half-Mire near-immortal will outlast all else in the universe]]. On the other, [[spoiler: it's never revealed who/what the Hybrid really is...and the Doctor DOES temporarily become a Woobie Destroyer of Worlds, eventually realizing he's effectively ''become'' the Hybrid as he repents of his selfish deeds at the end]].

* One teaser for ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' consists entirely of a context-free scene where Superman flies down into an underground bunker to unmask an imprisoned Batman, with a row of loyal black-clad soldiers kneeling before Superman as he walks in. While Superman is definitely something of an AntiHero in ''Dawn of Justice'''s precursor film, ''Film/ManOfSteel'', it's highly unlikely that he would actually recruit armed minions and keep his enemies chained up in a bunker.
