* In one of the children's book tie-ins of ''TheFlash'', the Weather Wizard is released to a halfway house on the same day a tornado rips through the city; naturally, everyone assumes he did it, but the Flash uses his science skills to deduce that the tornado began before he could have regained access to his weather control wand. [[spoiler:In the end, it's suggested that--as per the comics--he no longer quite needs the wand.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/Batman66'': In the very first story of the comic, the plot involves a cat-themed work of art and Catwoman is deemed a suspect because of that. [[spoiler:She's innocent but cannot resist temptation after the Riddler is defeated.]]
* ''Comicbook/LaffALympics'': In the unpublished story "The Miniature Meet", a mad scientist who's upset at the University where he works because they'd rather finance sports than the science division develops a shrinking ray he uses on the laff-a-lympics athletes when they compete on campus grounds. Yogi initially thinks the Really Rottens are behind this but realizes it's not the case when he sees Dread Baron among the shrunken victims. Dread Baron does like the idea.

** In the year-long StoryArc "Hush", after having seen his [[OldFriend old childhood friend]] "Tommy" being supposedly gunned down by SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, Bruce is [[UnstoppableRage chasing after him in a murderous rage]]. A part of his mind is confused that the Joker is [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness protesting his innocence]] (something he's [[CardCarryingVillain not exactly known for]]), but it's drowned out by the red rage.

* The ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'' BatFamilyCrossover "Dead Again" is all about this. When a Superman corpse shows up and seems to suggest that this was the real Superman still dead from his fight with Doomsday and the current hero is only [[TomatoInTheMirror a fake who thinks he's the real Superman]], the Man of Steel begins searching throughout his Rogues Gallery, including Luthor, Mxyzptlk, Brainiac, and Darkseid, to see who could be behind the hoax, with each one of his enemies revealing they have an alibi for what's happened. It's eventually revealed that [[spoiler:Brainiac]] was only faking innocence and really was the mastermind of the whole thing.

* Marvel Knights: ComicBook/SpiderMan kick off with a story where aunt May gets kidnapped and he goes running to ComicBook/NormanOsborn, who's in prison, demanding he return her. Osborn says he had nothing to do with it, what with, you know, being in prison and all...
** This is actually remarkably smart on Spidey's part, since being in prison or even dead has not stopped Osborn from wreaking all sorts of havoc in Peter's life before.
*** It makes Spidey very smart, [[spoiler: because [[SubvertedTrope he was right.]] Osborn was behind it all along.]]
** This happens to Spider-Man a LOT, apparently. During the Fallen Son arc mourning Captain America's death. While at the grave of Uncle Ben, Spidey sees Rhino walking through the cemetery. He attacks, thinking he's up to something (despite Rhino pleading that he isn't here to fight), and their fight breaks a gravestone belonging to Rhino's mother... which was the only reason he was there in the first place. When he realizes this, Spider-Man attempts to apologize, but Rhino is, understandably, far too angry to listen.

** In another comic, Mickey and O'Hara are investigating some robberies when they run into the Blot walking down the street, prompting the latter to arrest him on the spot (with no evidence whatsoever). The Blot doesn't resist and firmly denies everything, which Mickey notices is not like him and thinks he may even be innocent. It turns out he did do it...however he's not actually the Phantom Blot but rather a magically summoned duplicate created by Magica [=DeSpell=].

* ''ComicBook/WarlordOfMars''': One story arc involved the Green Martians suddenly becoming more violent than usual, placing the planet's newfound stability in peril. The [[SmugSnake scheming]] and [[AlwaysChaoticEvil treacherous]] [[LightIsNotGood White Martians]] are naturally the heroes' first suspects. However, after further investigation, its revealed that the real culprits behind it are [[spoiler: [[BitchInSheepsClothing the Yellow Martians of Okara]], specifically the ones thought to be the heroes' allies]].

** Also, there's the problem that Phantom Blot that being in jail has not stopped him from committing crimes, like the time he had a ring that accelerated his subjective time (effectively making him go into BulleetTime) that he would keep outside the window in case the police searched his cell, allowing him to break out, commit his crime and come back to his cell without anyone noticing.
