* That he is NotSoDifferent from his greatest enemies, especially SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, is repeatedly shown to be one of Franchise/{{Batman}}'s greatest fears. It's not an unfounded idea either; he may not be cruel or a murderer, but he's still not the sanest guy. In fact, one of the reasons that his RoguesGallery is considered the greatest in comics is because each of them are a dark reflection of a certain aspect of his personality.

-->'''Lobo:''' I know, because I was like you once. Bitter. Alone. Mad as Hell. But I didn't let it consume me. I put it to work.

** Amazingly enough, Spider-man is [[GenreSavvy perfectly aware]] that he and Loki, [[ManipulativeBastard of]] [[GodOfEvil all]] [[SorcerousOverlord people]], can relate to each other to a degree. After all, they both ''are'' tricksters of a sort, and they both carry [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatResponsibility the burden of great responsibility from their powers]], even if their reasons, methods and ultimate goals are vastly different.

*** ''CaptainAmerica'' of all people gets called out on this, too: In ''Target: X'' he intends to turn Laura over to ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} to be tried for her crimes, despite Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'s attempts (as her lawyer) to warn him that S.H.I.E.L.D. won't care about justice, and will only see her as a weapon to use themselves. Fortunately, Steve realizes Matt is right before he can actually go through with it.

For those who don't understand Spanish, it's about how a rich and a third world country woman comment on their food restrictions: While they both claim that they only eat cereals, the rich woman does so to keep her weight, while the poor woman does it because it's the only thing left to eat, and they both complain that their children eat a lot of "trash", like junk food in the rich woman's case and worms, infected water and rotten food in the third world woman's case.
