* The ComicBook/MarvelUniverse in general has always been pretty prone to use LetsYouAndHimFight, but as far back as ''at least'' ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' things have escalated to full-blown "WithUsOrAgainstUs" wars that keep swearing up and down that will change the Marvel Universe "forever" and have extended periods of people hating each other in the aftermath, then cooling down... and then along comes ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'', Johnathan Hickman's ''Avengers'' run, ''ComicBook/SecretWars2015'', and ''now'' we have ''[[ComicBook/CivilWarII Civil War]] [[ComicBook/CivilWarII TWO]]''... ''and'' there is a "Mutants Vs. Inhumans" coming up in the near future... [[BaseBreaker It has come to the point when people don't really know what to think of the situation]], [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy and some people have actually quit reading Marvel Comics in disgust]].

** The series premise: the X-Men will, forever, be "feared and hated". No matter what happens, no matter if the Avengers or the Government are on their side, no matter how many people are convinced, no matter how often people InUniverse and out swear that the Mutants will be accepted, yes, sir, ''this'' time it's permanent... rest assured, people hating "muties" (and armed with damn Sentinels) are coming up around the corner ''aaaaany'' moment now...
** And Mutantkind being a biologically endangered species has been done... how many times, already? Most fans may be able to remember at least three occasions: the Phalanx Virus, there was the post-''ComicBook/HouseOfM'' "curse" made by Scarlet Witch, and the most recent example being the Terigen Mists being ([[HandWave somehow]]) fatally poisonous to Mutants... and there is, of course, the many people/aliens/sentient bacteria that target mutants because they are mutants...



* ComicBook/{{Raven}} of ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' seemed to have found peace after she defeated her father in "ComicBook/TheTerrorOfTrigon" arc, but she wound up infected by his influence again in the early '90s. After her corrupted body was destroyed, she seemed to be free of evil (even if she was stuck in a golden spirit form). Flash forward to Teen Titans volume 3 and on, where the resurrected Raven had to fear being corrupted ''yet again'' by her father, who was inexplicably resurrected himself in Judd Winick's run of "Titans". The plot point of Raven going missing and having to be found or rescued was also recycled twice within volume 3. In the ComicBook/{{New 52}} reboot, Raven's back to trying to fight her father's influence. Writers also seemed to constantly recycle the "will they or won't they?" question about her relationship with Beast Boy, seeming to settle on the two getting together before everything was rendered moot by ''Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}}''.

** Each of JD's (very short) relationships mirrors the last one, contrasted by just about any other main character, all of whom go through some serious CharacterDevelopment over the course of the series.

**After the first season, there has almost always been a recurrence that is as follows: somewhere, there is a LeakingCanOfEvil. Sam and Dean must seal the Can. Whether they succeed or not is irrelevant, because either way the following season will involve the aftermath of the Can. Rinse. Repeat.[[spoiler: Season 2 culminates in a battle to seal a gate to Hell, and Season 3 is the aftermath of Dean's choices. Season 4 introduces Lucifer's cage, and Season 5 is about the brothers and their allies trying to fix the epic-level fuckup that let the Devil out. Season 6 through 8 is the Purgatory arc. Season 9 and 10 give us a respite of a sort, but the finale of 10 unseals yet another Can. Cue Season 11 - trying to get rid of the thing they released.]]
