*** With the ComicBook/{{New 52}} reboot in effect, this trope can apply to Batman and [[TheFlash Barry Allen]]. Both heroes have been orphaned at a young age, victims of circumstances beyond their control. Their respective tragedies are part of what drives them to be heroic.

** Supergirl and ''Comicbook/{{Lobo}}'' in the ''Comicbook/{{New 52}}''. Although the former is a hero devoted to protect people and her cousin Franchise/{{Superman}}'s protegee and the latter is a violent jerkass and AntiHero at best, both of them are two angry, lonely aliens and the last of their respective kinds. In the ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'', Lobo tells this to Supergirl:

* This is very apparent with the anime version of ComicBook/{{Blade}} and Deacon Frost. Both had their families taken away from them by vampires and lash out at them. But the difference is, Blade seeks to protect humanity from vampires and resists the Thirst, while Frost turned himself into a vampire and accepted the bloodlust, effectively becoming what he hated for the sake of power.

* In the Franchise/{{Archie|Comics}} ''Comicbook/SonicTheHedgehog'' comics, [[EvilTwin Scourge]] often brings this up to convince Sonic to be 'evil' like him. As he puts it, "[[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker All it takes is one bad day]], and you'd be just like me." Throughout the series they compare themselves to one another (in one issue, Sonic says something along the lines of "My evil 'twin' [[spoiler: conquered a planet on his own.]] What do you think will happen if I let loose?")

** Played for laughs at least once; when waiting for the police in Batman's custody, a captured serial killer makes a mocking speech of this nature about how Batman is driven by the same bloodthirsty impulses that he is, and that it's only a matter of time before Batman snaps and gives into them. Batman points out that if this is true, then the most likely first target is going to be whatever crazed serial killer he happens to be standing next to, particularly if said serial killer is insulting him. Crazed serial killer decides that ShuttingUpNow is probably a good idea.

Our curriculum will start at survival and end at the edge of an eternal tomorrow. The rules are simple. I teach one class and it's pass or fail. Welcome to the Future Foundation.
-->'''UltimateMarvel Reed Richards:''' And we'll begin here... with you and me. We're going to have a new focus for my ongoing and never-ending education. The experiment will start with survival and end on milennial tomorrow. My rules are simple. In the dome it's evolve or become extinct. Welcome children. Welcome to tomorrow. I'm sorry. Most of you are not going to make it.
