** In the ''Equestria Girls'' holiday special, Anon E. Miss is revealed to be [[spoiler:the Cutie Mark Crusaders, who were posting details about students' personal lives out of [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy that Sunset Shimmer was getting more attention from their sisters than they were]]]]. Even after the apology of the guilty party is accepted by Sunset Shimmer, the things that Anon E. Miss posted online don't just disappear, and the students don't magically forget the things that were posted. Rarity even tells Sweetie Belle that what Anon E. Miss posted will be up forever. Earlier in the story, Sunset laments to Twilight Sparkle how easy it is for someone's reputation to be destroyed with a few online posts.

* ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'' in his civilian identity as attorney Matt Murdock makes a point of only ever defending those that, thanks to his LivingLieDetector powers, he knows to be innocent. As such his practice is constantly in danger of shutting down from lack of money, since the majority of criminal defendents are guilty.

* Creator/{{Christopher Priest|Comics}}'s ''Comicbook/{{Deathstroke}}'' 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.

**In the same autobiography, it's briefly mentioned that all the costumed criminals who didn't give up or move on to less glamorous crimes simply ended up in jail and ''stayed'' there. No [[CardboardPrison Cardboard Prisons]] here.

** Later in Priest's run, the new Black Panther, Kasper Cole, falls from a 62nd floor window after trying to leap onto a helicopter. He attempts to break his fall by clinging to a flagpole, noting that Spider-Man and Daredevil do it all the time, only for the flagpole to snap in half as soon as he grabs it.

* [[ComicBook/TheMask The original Mask comics]] make a big deal of the fact that while whoever wears the titular mask operates under ToonPhysics, the same does not extend to anyone else, leading to a large number of grisly deaths as we're shown what really happens when someone gets SquashedFlat or has [[TorsoWithAView hole blown through their chest.]]

* Likewise, when Rita [=DeMara=] steals Pym's Yellowjacket suit and shrinks for the first time, she immediately freaks out and has a meltdown from seeing the world from this perspective. She begs Comicbook/TheWasp to return her to normal, and is visibly shaken when she regains her average height. That's probably how most real people would react to shrinking down to the size of an ant, regardless of how cool it looks in movies.

* During the Comics/{{Superman}} Sacrifice arc, the brainwashed Superman attacked Batman without warning, believing him to be Darkseid. In a straight up fight, without any prep time, the BadassNormal Batman didn't land any hits and was barely left alive. The only thing that saved his life was that Superman slammed him near the computers, allowing him to activate the Watchtower's security measures and temporarily distract Superman. It was only by the intervention of Wonder Woman that allowed Batman to survive.

* The premise of ''Comicbook/TitansHunt2015'' is that the original founding members of the Comicbook/TeenTitans all had their memories of each other erased. Consequently, it turns out that Mal Duncan, formerly the teenage superhero known as the Herald, has no memory of his powers or ever fighting crime to begin with. When he's attacked by Mammoth, he's completely unprepared and gets his ass kicked. The subsequent ''Titans'' ongoing series also reveals that Mal has developed severe PTSD from the incident, as being ambushed and nearly killed by a horrifying monster after years of believing you were just a normal civilian is probably gonna leave some mental scars.
