* Even the creators of ''ComicBook/AtomicRobo'' describe it as ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}'' [-WITH SCIENCE!-] Literally - the commentary for the first volume is literally called [[http://www.atomic-robo.com/2007/10/30/what-if-hellboy-was-a-robot/ "What if Hellboy was a robot?"]]

* The back of the ''SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} Corps'' volume 1 trade paperback ("Pool-pocalypse Now") actually has the tagline "[-DEADPOOL IN SPAAAAAACE!-]" And it's funny that this particular hero should use this tropes, since a Christopher Priest issue promised us there would be no more space adventures with 'Pool.

Was that really an "The X-Men have gone to space lots of times, here's a 5 page paper about it" example? Good criminy...
* ''ComicBook/AvengersArena'' is ''Literature/HungerGames'' / ''Literature/BattleRoyale'' [-WITH SUPERHEROES!-] * The {{Elseworlds}} book ''Franchise/{{Batman}}: Masque'' is ''Franchise/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' [-WITH BATMAN!-]

* ''ComicBook/AvengersArena'' is ''Literature/HungerGames'' / ''Literature/BattleRoyale'' [-WITH SUPERHEROES!-] * The Most {{Elseworlds}} book ''Franchise/{{Batman}}: Masque'' is ''Franchise/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' [-WITH BATMAN!-]can be described as "A familiar character (usually either Batman or Superman) [-IN SOME OTHER TIME PERIOD-]! This dates back to the proto-Elseworld, ''Gotham by Gaslight'', set in the 1890s; other examples include ''Kal'' (Middle Ages), ''The Batman of Arkham'' (1900), and ''Shogun of Steel'' (Feudal era Japan).

* This trope is so common in silver age ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}} comics that it's a catchphrase of Legion fandom to randomly add "of space" to things. Classic examples include the Super Stalag of Space, the Super Moby Dick of Space, the Mount Rushmore of Space, etc, etc, et so very c.

* Marvel/Star Comics' ''Planet Terry'' was a cashless orphaned ''ComicBook/RichieRich'' [-IN SPACE!-]

* ''ComicBook/StrikeforceMorituri'' is ''ComicBook/SuicideSquad'' in space. * ''ComicBook/SuicideSquad'' is ''Film/TheDirtyDozen'' with Superheroes.

* ''ComicBook/XMen'' started having more and more space adventures during Creator/ChrisClaremont's run. Not only was the famous [[TheDarkPhoenixSaga Phoenix Saga]] oriented around it but the theme continued with The Brood, The Phalanx, Magneto getting a space base and more and more people coming from TheFuture. And then it gets REALLY space-y when it's revealed that Celestial experiments on ancient humanity created the X-gene. Some people consider these things to be abject in the general scope of the franchise so they rarely get mentioned in adaptations with the notable exception of the 1990s ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' cartoon.
