* {{Marvel}} rogue [[JekyllAndHyde Mr. Hyde]] was always a violent, brutal thug of a villain, but his true MEH crossing would have to be in Avengers #275 and #276, when he beat the Avengers' butler Jarvis half to death while Jarvis was tied up and helpless. Hyde did this just to hurt ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, who could only watch as the horrible scene played out.

** For starters, the kickstarter of the whole plot: Joker [[spoiler: kidnaps Lois and links the trigger to a nuke set in Metropolis to her heartbeat. He then uses Kryptonite-laced Joker gas to make Superman think he's fighting Doomsday when in reality...it was Lois. The kicker? Lois was 'pregnant'. Not only that. Joker said he decided to go after Superman because it was "Easy mode" for him and he was tired of losing to Batman.]] Joker's actions were Superman's StartOfDarkness.

* VandalSavage, being an immortal villain in DC Comics continuity, has had several millennia and hundreds, if not possibly thousands, of opportunities to cross it, with just a few of the examples we know about listed on his character page. Of those listed, however, perhaps his most disturbing MEH-crossing candidate is [[spoiler:setting up his daughter Scandal to be raped because [[IWantGrandkids he wants an heir]]]].

* In ''StarWarsLegacy'', [[BigBad Darth Krayt]], in a fit of temper after losing an important shipyard, orders ten percent of the Mon Calamari species executed on the spot and the rest imprisoned in camps to be worked to death. Even the other Sith thought it was a bit much. As for the reader...

* In ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', Superboy-Prime was presented as a confused teenager with powers he couldn't control lashing out at people who didn't understand him... until he lost it and killed some CListFodder, whereupon he turned into a near-demonic CardCarryingVillain, excusing his actions by claiming to be "better than those losers". Superboy-Prime picked a fight with the Conner Kent Superboy and got jumped by the full Teen Titans roster. He lost control of his own strength when he fought back, killing some of them and provoking a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment. At that point the Flashes drag him into the Speed Force, where they imprison him for an unknown length of time. When next we see him, he threatens to kill even his friends and allies to get what he wants. And he's ''terrified'' of all Flashes. DC has never explained what they did to him.

** It wasn't just Daken. This storyline involved Sabretooth manipulating Daken into abusing and torturing the teenage clone of {{Apocalypse}}, who, again, was a thirteen-year-old boy. Note, the only reason Sabretooth did any of this was to screw with Wolverine. He risked creating another {{Apocalypse}} and destroying the world as we know it just to screw with Wolverine.

* The title character of the ''Comicbook/{{Lucifer}}'' comics [[KickTheDog punted dogs]] as a hobby (naturally), establishing him quite firmly as an epic DeadpanSnarker and SociopathicHero that was as amusing and {{Badass}} as those tropes suggest. This continued all the way until the Basanos arc, where in a rather impressive twist the Basanos actually mortally injured him... only for Lucifer to reveal that he had manipulated TokenMiniMoe Elaine from the start and tricked her into dying in his place. He might have redeemed himself later on (bringing Elaine BackFromTheDead helped) but the [[WordOfGod writer]] mentioned that he considered Lucifer's destruction of The Mansions of The Silence Lucifer's point of no return, destroying ''billions'' of souls ''because he was impatient''.

** [[CorruptHick Jody]] crosses when he [[BoomHeadshot blows Tulip O'Hare's brains out]] (she gets better) for the "crime" of being a positive influence in Jesse Custer's life, as does [[EvilMatriarch Marie L'Angelle]], who ordered the deed. A subsequent flashback that Marie and her men spent Jesse's childhood merrily murdering their way through anyone and anything that gave Jesse one iota of happiness.
