* In an ''ArchieComics'' story, Archie's mother tries to interest Archie's father in needlepoint, which the father insists is "for women only". When he discovers that the family surgeon made a first-prize-winning example of needlepoint, he threatens to find a different surgeon. Then the mother calmly suggests that while he could find a nice, manly surgeon who's all thumbs, she'd rather stick with someone who knows how to handle a needle if she ever needs stitches. Cue the backdown.

* ''Franchise/GreenLantern'': Kyle Rayner. Like all Green Lanterns, he fights cosmic threats, but unlike most (who lack fear), he was chosne because he can pvercome it (facing fears everyday.) He is an artist, something reflected in his powers. Based on some of his constructs, the guy reads a lot of Shojou. Nonetheless, he is still a Green Lantern (at one point, the only one) and was once the container of the embodiment of willpower.

* Leslie in ''ComicStrip/LibertyMeadows'' cries while watching ''TouchedByAnAngel'', but changes the channel to a wrestling match and starts grunting when Ralph enters the room. Of course, it would be hard for Leslie to be described as a Real Man, even if he weren't a frog.

* The ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'''s strong man Colossus is not only an artistic painter, he was also shown in the X-Mansion kitchen preparing to make quiche in ''Uncanny X-Men'' #171. This was about a year after ''Real Men Don't Eat Quiche'' came out.

* Whenever ''ThePhantom'' has to visit a bar, he orders milk. The local toughs invariably try to pick on him for it. This never ends well.
* The living incarnation of Destruction in ''Comicbook/TheSandman'' gives up his cosmic responsibilities and tries his hand at creation; painting, dance, and flamenco guitar, among other hobbies. It all goes rather badly until he turns out to be quite a talented gourmet chef.

* In ''SinCity'', we have Marv who was a [[AManIsNotAVirgin virgin for most of his life]] and Wallace who often got comments about his "hippie-hair". Both men are probably the deadliest characters in a world filled with TestosteronePoisoning.

-> ''"Some people say that men don't cry. That's crap. When my father died and I went to his funeral, I cried my goddamned eyes out. A lot of guys would worry about what that would do to their reputation. But here's the thing, tough guys cry, tough guys CAN cry because tough guys don't give a s&@! what other people think of them"''

Added DiffLines:

* A new villain who appeared during the the time of the superhero registration act calling himself underworld was an old school street thug that could make super powered villains in a villain bar feel intimidated. Underworld new how to fight and kick the crap out of anyone on the street, ended up fighting hordes of super villains, and in the end, had to kill his only brother. If that isn't manly, nothing is. Underworld also had a very interesting view on masculinity that he shares with the audience at the beginning of the mini series.

* The Last Czarnian, {{Lobo}}, who once killed, barbecued and ate a whole planet full of Easter Bunnies, once shed a single tear just ''thinking'' about his beloved space dolphins.

** That said, the {{New 52}} incarnation of the character has clearly caved on this point. The costume is now armor and has a muted version of his traditional color scheme. Also, no underwear on the outside of the pants.

* ''{{Taskmaster}}'': The man has beaten Comicbook/CaptainAmerica, Franchise/SpiderMan, Comicbook/IronMan, and many others by copying their move-sets and sheer trickery, dual-wields pistols and weaponry on a daily basis, and wears a (fake) skull as a mask. He enjoys the Music/SpiceGirls. That is all.
