* ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' spin-off ''ComicBook/XStatix'' creator Creator/PeterMilligan bloodily slaughtered all the surviving team members in the book's final issue. Not that this stopped him from revisiting some of them for a miniseries set in the afterlife.

* In TheSeventies, Jim Starlin was writing an ''Comicbook/AdamWarlock'' series that got cancelled mid-storyline. He was allowed to close the book on the characters via a crossover that ran between through the yearly annuals for titles like ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'' and ''Marvel Two-In-One'', and by the end, Adam, Gamora, Pip the Troll and Thanos were all seemingly KilledOffForReal. They remained dead for over decade too, before Starlin himself brought them all back to life in the lead-up to ''Comicbook/TheInfinityGauntlet''.

%%* The manga ''Aki Sora'' wrapped with a total deconstruction when new obscenity laws passed that would make continuing the story illegal (for similar reasons its page was cut from TVTropes,) and the [[BrotherSisterIncest incest fantasy]] received a rude awakening from RealityEnsues. [[spoiler: After getting away with their affair everywhere and anywhere with impunity, the eponymous siblings were discovered by their father, who was shocked and outraged enough to move out with Aki in tow. Sora, in his first display of guts in the entire series, stood up to his father. Heroics did not ensue; he was promptly smashed to the ground with one blow by the father, who then took Aki away from the house presumably for good.]]

* Allan Heinberg did this to the YoungAvengers in ''Avengers: ComicBook/TheChildrensCrusade'' #9 by killing off Stature and Comicbook/TheVision, as well as having Patriot retire and the rest of the team split up. Later writers have revived the team, but with new characters to replace the departed ones.

* Creator/AlanMoore may or may not have wanted to prevent anyone else from using the characters from ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'', but its bleak ending and thorough {{Deconstruction}} of the superhero genre certainly had that effect all the same. This is the reason why the story uses {{exp|y}}ies of the Creator/CharltonComics superheroes: Moore was initially hired to write a story using the Charlton characters themselves, but DC executives looked at his first draft and realized that if they published the story they'd never be able to use the characters again. They asked him to either change the story or change the superheroes, and he changed the superheroes. ''Watchmen'' remained a standalone miniseries for over 20 years--and when DC finally did decide to make more stories in that 'verse, they commissioned the new writers to create prequels instead of attempting to continue from where ''Watchmen'' ended, and even then it's proven hugely controversial. They finally decide to just weld Dr. Manhattan (and possibly other Watchmen characters) to the mainline DC during [[DC Rebirth]], and handled by the heads of DC, ensuring that Watchmen as a franchise cannot be killed off.

* ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'' had an in universe example in a ''Future Shock'' titled "The Mainstream". The author of a series of books known as the ''Clench'' series gets sick of writing science fiction, so he writes a story where the main character gets into a near fatal accident and has [[AnArmAndALeg several body parts]] [[ArtificialLimbs replaced with cybernetics]] and then goes on to be assimilated by the titular Clench, where his mind overrides their collective consciousness. His agent calls him out on it, but he doesn't care. Then, he gets attacked by his own creation and left in a coma. [[MindScrew Maybe]].
