* '''Inverted''': Dr. Knight has defeated Maximilian the Mad, and he gloats about how this victory will be beneficial to Knight and all other good people, and once he's done making this point, he goes on to describe how miserable Maximilian will be while he is locked up in jail. And he does this in the same LargeHam tones of voice that characterize so much of the EvilGloating on part of the villains.

* '''Invoked''': ???

to:

* '''Invoked''': ???"But before I die, what was all this about in the first place?"



* '''Conversed''': ???

to:

* '''Conversed''': ???The writers of this comic book are so old-fashioned. They actually have the villain gloat evilly and explain his plan to the hero, instead of just shooting her."

to:

* '''Defied''': ???
Someone (whether the hero, or a fellow villain who finds this gloating in poor taste) tells Maximilian to ShutUpHannibal before he really gets started.
* '''Discussed''': ???"The villains in the [[YouWatchTooMuchX spy novels I read in high school]] would have given an extended, gloating speech at this point. But Maximilian simply gave a smug smile, and left the room to get on with his business."
