* 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.

** In the Spider-Man spin off ''Jackpot'', the heroine, later accompanied by Spidey himself, beats up a minor villainess who was smuggling but really hadn't anything to do with what Jackpot wanted to know about. The snippy answer of the villainess was something around the lines of : "What? Do you think every villain in New York gets a daily update about every crime?!"
