** And these traits got passed down to their son and his wife, ComicBook/LoisLane, when they had their son, Jonathan. When the Eradicator tried to murder Jon in ''Comicbook/SupermanRebirth'' because he wasn't a pure-blood Kryptonian and Superman was taken out of the picture temporarily, Lois discovers and dons Franchise/{{Batman}}'s old Hellbat Armor (an armor designed to take on {{Comicbook/{{Darkseid}}) and helps protect her son until Supes is back in action.

* Sure, her son's one of the most powerful non-god beings on the planet, but do NOT mess with Franchise/{{Superman}} when Ma Kent is around. She probably won't be of much use, but damn if she won't try. Pa Kent'll provides backup as a PapaWolf - and ''he's'' got military experience.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'''s mother Alura In-Ze is fiercely protective of her daughter and -in the ''Comicbook/{{New 52}}'' universe- is a trained soldier. So beware. In the ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' storyline she stopped a [[Franchise/GreenLantern Red Lantern]] who tried to invade Supergirl's mind and demanded that she leave her daughter alone.

* The female Dr. Light proved her MamaBear status in print, in an alternate timeline in a recent issue of ''ComicBook/BoosterGold'', by killing the evil Max Lord for killing her kids. And thus, {{Fanon}} becomes semi-{{Canon}}: ''Don't mess with Kimiyo Hoshi's children!!'' In the main timeline, when the [[ComicBook/BlackestNight superpowered zombie]] Dr Arthur Light threatened her children, Dr Light was able to [[spoiler: create a bright and powerful enough light to ''completely atomize him'']].

** One issue of had Reed and Susan's daughter Valeria caught in the middle of a rampage created by Thundra, the Absorbing Man, and a mind-controlled Ben Grimm and She-Hulk. She's about to be squished when Sue shows up, already in a bad mood. Cue the resulting stomping of four of the most powerful superhumans on Earth. Made even better when Reed and Johnny show up...and Reed restrains Johnny from trying to help Sue, because he knows that she's not going to need any.

** Add to this the fact that Reed is a PapaWolf himself, and it's a given that threatening Franklin and Valeria is death wish.

* ThePunisher story arc ''Streets of Laredo'' features a mama bear in the form of Rachel, the leader of a big-time gunrunning outfit in Texas. The only thing she cares about more than her operation is her son, Clark. Clark is openly gay, and when one of Rachel's men voices his contempt she challenges him to a fight and coldly [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beats him to death]].

* ''ComicBook/TheSandman'': When Hippolyta's son Daniel is taken to be the next incarnation of Dream, she loses her mind and [[spoiler: recruits the Furies to take revenge on the original Dream, leading to his death]]. To be fair to Hippolyta, she only goes this far when she thinks Dream ''burned her son to death''. When she realizes that Daniel is still alive (only his mortality was burned away), she tries to get the Furies to stop their attack and help her get him back saying that they don't have to kill Dream. The Furies tell her that they don't help, they avenge and continue on their campaign unabated.

** More recently, when Ultimate Eddie Brock/Ultimate Venom showed up at the Parkers' home, attempted to talk his way inside (reminiscent of a scene that occurred in the mid-90s animated series where the beefier inspired-by-616 Brock does the same to a quite-different Aunt May.) The conversation does not go well for Ultimate Brock. She pulls a hand cannon on him and threatens to blow him away, knowing what he is.

* ComicBook/JeanGrey Zigzags the Trope:
** Subverted in the comic books with her own daughter. Jean is -- in most continuities -- the mother of Rachel Summers. Very rarely does Jean ever lift a finger to protect Rachel. This is probably because Rachel is a psi of talent close to or ''exceeding'' her mother's own. Baby can take care of herself and Mama knows it too well. Plus, Mama's [[FirstLawofResurrection dead a lot.]]

** Sue could practically be the goddess of this trope. In the ''ComicBook/FantasticFour Vs. the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' miniseries, the team is nearly torn apart when an old diary of Reed's seems to imply that he caused the accident that transformed them into the FF on purpose. It's Sue that deduces the diary is a trap laid by Dr. Doom years before. She warns Doom that a lioness is "never as dangerous as when protecting cub, and den, and mate." She then asks Doom if he's ever considered just what would happen if she decided to project an invisible force-field ''inside'' his body...and then expand it.

* Played straight with Ororo Munroe aka ComicBook/{{Storm}} in the '90s ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' animated series, when her god-child (the son of Storm's best friend in Africa, whom she has known from birth) who's also a mutant (more exactly, a FragileSpeedster a la Quicksilver) is kidnapped and possessed by her arch-nemesis, the Shadow King. Used a bit in ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'', too, where she was Evan/Spyke's Auntie Bear of sorts an the TeamMom of the group.
