* If {{Superman}} knows you well enough, he can identify your heartbeat from across the city. [[DependingOnTheWriter Sometimes]], he can hear it from the ''moon''. It's not as bad as it could be, seeing as [[NiceGuy it's... well... Superman]], but still...
** "It's Superman" is of little comfort when you consider [[ComicBook/{{Irredeemable}} the possibility of his betrayal]].
** How about the little fact that this flying indestructible superfast juggernaut with the laserbeam eyes has absolutely NO resistance to the legions of mind-controlling psychopaths that infest your world?

* Superman is very self-controlled, but her cousin ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} is just so powerful... and more short-tempered and reckless. [[ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton Short-tempered enough to draw a Red Lantern Ring]] and becoming a mindless, living "extinction level threat".

* ''ComicBook/ROMSpaceKnight'': The entire premise of the book has ROM searching down Dire Wraiths, who wielded black magic, could shapeshift and furthermore had a disgustingly long tongue/drill-thing that could pierce skulls and suck out both the memories/personality and lifeforce of human victims, leaving behind nothing but a pile of dust and allowing the Dire Wraith to impersonate their victim flawlessly. All this for a child's action figure robot comic-book tie-in.

* Three villains from ''ComicBook/TexWiller'' easily invoke it:
** Mefisto, being a formidable warlock, can see you from anywhere, and if he wants he can show up with an AstralProjection and summon hallucination so terrifying they have driven people to madness in ''less than a minute''. Then there's the fact he's a MasterOfDisguise (in one occasion Tex and his pards even ''helped him'' with his capsized wagon, and didn't know it had been him until much later, when he decided to taunt them) and knows how to brew and make people consume poisons...
** Yama, [[InTheBlood Mefisto's son]], has his own ways. He's not as good at disguising himself, and his AstralProjection can only appear relatively close to him unless there's an AmplifierArtifact near the apparition zone... But his AstralProjection can interact with the physical world by grabbing things. Including weapons.
** Sumalkan, the Black Tiger, is already terrifying in normal conditions, to the point one of his minions decided to betray him and talked about it to Madison, another minion. Madison then leaves the room to take something that should make the other think about what he's proposing... And then ''the Black Tiger comes in, very far away from his lair, and knows everything, because '''Madison was him in disguise'''''. [[MasterOfDisguise He's so good with disguises]], and smart at using them, [[DevilInPlainSight you could be talking with him while he's planning to murder you and not know unless he decides to drop the disguise]].

* Marvel's ''SecretInvasion'' definitely fits this trope. In it, Earth is invaded by shape-changing, reptilian aliens called Skrulls -- and some of the invaders have supplanted certain people on Earth. Even worse, there is so far no way to distinguish the impostors from the people they're impersonating. To make matters still worse, the Skrull impostors have gained access to Earth's most advanced technologies -- and sabotaged a lot of it. And furthermore, it's been suggested in places that some of the people they have replaced are sleeper agents who don't know that they're Skrulls until they've been "activated" -- ''you'' could be one...

* ComicBook/TheGiganticBeardThatWasEvil: Everyone in Here is always paranoid about the idea of There. There eventually breaks through to Here in a way nobody would have suspected - through a man's facial hair. RapidHairGrowth has never been so existentially terrifying.

* If you're unlucky enough to live in ''[[MarvelZombies Earth-2149]]'', then... [[SarcasmMode well, congratulations]]! Hiding is useless, since Zombie Daredevil is gonna find you with a Quinjet, in order to trick you into thinking he's there to rescue you! [[spoiler: Good thing he just proposed such an idea... not that it makes the horror any more bearable, that is.]]
