** ComicBook/SheHulk had that problem as well - as She-Hulk, she would beat up bad guys then, as Jennifer Walters, defend them. She quickly realizes how much trouble that was and changes professions to be a prosecutor.

** Tim's entire arc could be seen as a the more realistic take on the FromNobodyToNightmare trope. Tim is out for vengeance against TheHero and uses his wealth and planning to try and destroy him. However, thanks to his inexperience, he continually makes mistakes that allow the hero to survive, and the story ends with [[spoiler: the Punisher surprising Tim in his home and casually murdering him without much fanfare. No dramatic final showdown or epic last stand with a grandiose speech. Just Tim having an OhShit reaction and Punisher shooting him in the face.]]

Tim is out for vengeance against TheHero and uses his wealth and planning resources to try and come up with an elaborate plan to destroy him. However, thanks to his inexperience, he continually makes mistakes that allow stupid misakes, and the hero Punisher is eventually able to survive, figure out his identity and track him down fairly easily since a vengeful son is going to be the prime suspect in a case like this. After all this, the story ends with [[spoiler: the Punisher surprising Tim in his home and casually murdering him without much fanfare. No dramatic final showdown or epic last stand with a grandiose speech. Just Tim having an OhShit reaction and Punisher shooting him in the face.]]

** During a drug-fueled rampage, Jericho punches his sister, Rose, in the face while wearing his Ikon Suit. Most superhero stories wouldn't treat this a particularly notable event, but Rose actually ends up in the hospital with a serious skull fracture and is later shown with a number of stitches on her shaved head.

* During WarrenEllis' ''ComicBook/UltimateFantasticFour'' run, the team traveled to Denmark to capture Doctor Doom and turn him over to the U.S. military. The story ended with the Danish military [[KarmaHoudini not only protecting Doom]], but then forcibly ejecting both the Comicbook/FantasticFour and the American soldiers from their country. Governments don't respond well to foreign groups barging onto their property to take an affluent citizen.

** Creator/{{Christopher Priest|Comics}}'s run provides a more realistic take on the HealingFactor power seen in a lot of comics. Slade is exposed to radiation during a battle near a nuclear submarine reactor, and begins to go blind as a result. When someone says his regenerative abilities should make this impossible, Tanya Spears points out that his healing factor isn't magic. It can heal damaged and diseased body parts, not grow new organs to replace dead ones.

** The same mini-series has a scene where Lieutenant Molly von Richthofen is trapped in a house full of Mafia goons. She decides to burst into the living room where the goons are gathered and points her gun at them, giving a BadassBoast and telling them they're all under arrest. SmashCut to Molly's funeral, with the priest saying there wasn't much left of her to bury after she was killed in the ensuing hail of gunfire. Thankfully, this turns out to be a DaydreamSurprise, and Molly decides to hide rather than confront the goons directly.

** Ennis' ''Punisher: War Zone'' mini-series features Tim, the son of the above-mentioned Elite, as the main antagonist. During an attempt to snipe the Punisher from a tree, the boy misses and promptly gets two of his fingers shot off, forcing him to make a hasty retreat. Tim later says that people like Creator/BruceWillis make[[OnlyAFleshWound shrugging off non-fatal gunshot wounds look easy]], when in reality, getting shot often causes debilitating pain that makes it difficult to do much of anything, much less continue fighting.

It's also mentioned that Tim peed his pants the first time he was shot at, probably the reaction most sheltered teenagers with no combat experience would have to such a terrifying situation.
