** ''ComicBook/ActionComics''' first arc having ComicBook/WonderWoman tell Lois Lane that her love for Superman feels more "true". Wonder Woman had previously been in a relationship with the New 52 Superman that wasn't very well received, so this is basically Diana saying it wasn't true love. This even extends to Diana's ''own'' series, where she tells Steve Trevor, her most frequent love interest who got sidelined to make way for [=NuSupes=], that she was with [=NuSupes=] because it was "easy". Basically Greg Rucka was jabbing at the decision to pair the two up.

** The TakeThat towards the Superman/Wonder Woman relationship
even extends to occured in ''ComicBook/WonderWomanRebirth'', Diana's ''own'' series, where series. There she tells Steve Trevor, her most frequent love interest who got sidelined to make way for [=NuSupes=], that she was with [=NuSupes=] because it was "easy". Basically Greg Rucka was jabbing at the decision to pair the two up.up through Wonder Woman.



** ''ComicBook/SupermanReborn'' has a subtle but still noticeable example if you're up on your ''Superman'' lore. The story reveals that Superdad and [=NuSupes=] are actually two halves of the ''original'' Superman. Specifically, that Superdad is the blue energy of Superman, while [=NuSupes=] is the red. This is actually a new version of the ''Superman Blue/Superman Red'' storyline from the 90s, wherein Superman was two energy beings that were, well, blue and red. In that story, it's eventually revealed that the blue Superman is the real one. Yep, the writers were sneaky with it, but they got in one last jab at [=NuSupes=] before he was written out of history altogether -- Superdad, despite being one half of the "true" Superman, is still the "real" Superman. When the two fuse back together into the "true" Superman, said Superman is basically entirely Superdad anyway, since he's got Superdad's history, family and personality.

* Both core ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' books in the ComicBook/DCRebirth line took jabs at the New 52 Superman ([[FanNickname NuSupes]]). The guy was ''not'' well-liked, and was killed off just prior to the relaunch to make way for the pre-New 52 Superman (Superdad). Examples include:

** Rhymey gets an even bigger dose in the {{recursive|Fanfiction}} FixFic ''Fanfic/MykanTributeFallOfStarfleetRiseOfHarmony'', where the majority of his character arc consists of these moments. Over the course of a single chapter, he gets beaten up by Rainbow Dash, loses the ability to rhyme, and is thrown out of Fluttershy's house. Later, Fluttershy [[spoiler:breaks free from his attempt to mind control her]] and lays a massive TheReasonYouSuckSpeech on him, before he [[spoiler:gets beaten down by Raven, who then slits his throat for good measure]]. He survives that, only to wind up in prison, where he gets disavowed by Grand Ruler and disowned by his own mother. Any potential sympathy for him is averted by his characterization as an [[DomesticAbuse abusive]], [[ItsAllAboutMe self-serving]], [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder treacherous]] [[TheSociopath sociopath]].

If you let Cedric get eaten multiple times, Narrator!Graham notes that you must really enjoy seeing that owl suffer. If you try to walk away from the puzzle multiple times, Graham will go into a rant about how he was glad to see that owl dead and wanted to chase off the badger so he could eat the thing himself.

It wouldn't become as obvious until later, but Vince, or someone high up the ladder, was pissed at him. ''A lot''. Roman lost his next title defense to Wrestling/SethRollins at ''Wrestling/MoneyInTheBank 2016'', who was then cashed in on by the aforementioned Ambrose to become the new WWE Champion. And he did so ''clean'' -- Roman hadn't lost clean in four years by that point, and that was in developmental. After setting up Wrestling/TheShield triple threat on ''RAW'' the following night, he was suspended (to the shock and delight of fans), and proceeded to go under a gradually more obvious HumiliationConga. First, Rollins constantly referenced to Roman's suspension during the build and took numerous shots at him. The company started to fully acknowledge the negative reactions he was getting. He came back for the triple threat at ''Battleground'', and went under a lot of punishment, including a patented Shield powerbomb from Ambrose and Rollins. He was pinned clean by Ambrose, who was then lifted up on the shoulders of Wrestling/TheUsos, Roman's cousins, during his win. The next night on RAW, he was verbally eviscerated by Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon for losing the title to SmackDown, in front of the entire RAW roster. Then, just when it seems he'll get out of his funk by becoming the #1 Contender to the new Universal Title, he gets pinned clean ''again'', this time by Wrestling/FinnBalor, who had just debuted on the main roster. Roman's taken such a beating even people who hate him seem to start feeling sorry for him, though that's still in the minority.
