* Marv of ''ComicBook/SinCity'' goes on one of these when his lady of the night Goldie is murdered and he is framed for the crime.
** And in ''ComicBook/SinCity: Family Values'', Dwight and Miho cut a swath through the Sin City Mafia to avenge the shooting of a prostitute.

Marv of ''ComicBook/SinCity'' goes on one of these in ''The Hard Goodbye'' when his lady of the night Goldie is murdered and he is framed for the crime.
** And in ''ComicBook/SinCity: Family ''Family Values'', Dwight and Miho cut a swath through the Sin City Mafia to avenge the shooting of a prostitute.



* In all adaptations of ''ComicBook/ThePunisher'', the entire plot revolves around this, to the point where it's less a RoaringRampageOfRevenge and more of a Roaring ''Marathon'' of Revenge. In the comic, Frank Castle's family was killed when they stumbled upon a mob execution while having a picnic in a park. In revenge, Frank kills the people responsible and then goes on to kill all the other criminals he can find. In [[Film/ThePunisher2004 the movie]], Frank was once in the FBI, and his family was specifically targeted.
** It may be worth noting that when that entry says "his family was specifically targeted", it means his ''entire'' family. The BigBad's hit men attacked a Castle ''family reunion''.
*** In an arc of [[ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX the MAX comic]] entitled "Up is Down, Black is White" a gangster with a grudge against Castle [[TooDumbToLive/ComicBooks digs up his wife and children, urinates on the remains, and releases the footage to the news media]]. Frank did [[PapaWolf not take]] [[TranquilFury this too well.]] [[PayEvilUntoEvil Let's just say the bad guy got what he deserved, and the crime rate went down significantly]].
*** For another example of what happens when you ''really'' piss off Frank Castle, look at "The Slavers," where he finds a sex slavery ring that tried to intimidate a woman into silence by killing her baby. Frank's path of destruction is something to behold: [[spoiler: He tracks down one procurer, knocks him out, and wakes him so that he can see he's been disemboweled, with his intestines tied to tree branches. Once he spills, Frank leaves him there and moves on to the accountant. He tries to throw her out of her skyscraper office, only to find out the place has safety glass - so he ''hurls her against the window'' until it pops out of frame and she hits the ground. Once he finds the local ringleader, he ties him to a chair and sets him on fire alive, all as a videotaped message to the rest out of the outfit - "Don't come back here."]]

* In the Disney series ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'', this is what drives the character of Xadhoom. Having seen her entire planet destroyed and her people reduced to mindless slaves, she swore revenge on the alien race that caused it, the Evronians. Unfortunately for the Evronians, Xadhoom had recently become one of the most destructive forces in the Universe, having the destructive power of a super nova. Xadhoom now hunts the Evronians all over the Universe, killing as many of them as she can. (And that's a lot.)
** To better illustrate, here's her last act. After she destroyed the Evronian mobile throneworld (think a starship the size of a small moon) and before becoming a sun to help the last survivors of her people, she prepared an artifact that contained a copy of her memory and mind. An attempt to leave a memory of her and a copy of her immense knowledge (like how to become like her. She actually told her people they should have become like her, as she was basically immortal and undefeatable, before becoming a sun), you think. It later turns out she had also sent her father out to lure at least a last Evronian into stealing it to acquire the secret of her power, so she could tell him how... And enjoy how he would get destroyed by that power and the lack of the needed self-control: the readers already knew she had a self-control bigger than even herself thought possible (as shown that one time she was so furious everybody including her expected her to go nova but she ONLY destroyed four roofs of a skyscraper, and when the Evronians finally captured her and tried to torture her into becoming an eternal energy source but she resisted pretty easily), but given how impulsive and furiously she acts you would never expect it. And yes, she disintegrated a last Evronian in the most humiliating possible fashion after having practically died, and set things up to continue as long as the surviving Evronians will fall for it.

* ComicBook/SpiderMan has one in the first "Sin-Eater" story arc. The Sin-Eater is murdering people left and right, and one of his victims is Captain Jean [=DeWolfe=]. As she was one of Spider-Man's friends and supporters, he takes her death very hard and this adventure very personally. Ultimately, Spider-Man finds the Sin-Eater (who has no superpowers, by the way) and brutally beats him to a pulp. If not for ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}, Spider-Man seemed quite likely to kill him.

** The comic ultimately turns into a jet-black {{Deconstruction}} of the concept, as it not only applies the CycleOfRevenge as listed above, but also kicks in RealityEnsues in two key points nearly all such stories ignore. That being 1) It doesn't matter how much you train and prepare, if you go and brutally massacre a bunch of people that require immense preparation to set up and get to, you are going to leave enough faint traces of evidence that the incredible amount of attention this brings will put it together, one way or another, and 2) Anyone who would actually prepare and go through with a deed like that is probably not all that mentally stable and will be unlikely to [[ProtagonistJourneyToVillain handle it well]] when pressure is applied to them, like say, the pressure of trying to cover their tracks because of 1...
*** Oh, and just how badly things get even worse when 2) is merged with MamaBear. Or TheSociopath version of Mama Bear, perhaps.

** His biggest however has been in the AlternateUniverse story "OldManLogan," where after returning home to his family with the money needed to pay off their debtors, [[spoiler: he finds them murdered by those he owes because "[[ForTheEvulz they were bored.]]"]] He forsakes his [[BerserkButton fifty years of pacifism]] in order to exact some ''[[UnstoppableRage very]]'' [[NoKillLikeOverkill bloody satisfaction]] of his own. Given the reason he gave up [[MemeticMutation snikting bubs]] in the [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone first place]], this is a pretty huge character shift.

** A somewhat similar incident occurs in the Ultimate series. A punk dressed up as Spider-Man had been robbing banks and destroying the little amount of good reputation that Peter had built up when taking down Doc Ock for the first time. While robbing an armored truck, the imposter is confronted by Police Captain Stacey, father of Peter's friend Gwen, and a bullet ignites the plastic explosives in the criminal's backpack. He quickly shrugs it off and throws it away, and it arcs right towards a nearby child. [[spoiler: Stacey, in keeping with the death of the character in the original universe, [[HeroicSacrifice throws the child out of harm's way and is killed when the explosives detonate]].]] Later on, Peter hears a report that the imposter is attempting to rob another place and finally confronts his double face to face. After a brutal beat-down, Peter locks his hands around the man's throat and very nearly strangles him to death while screaming his fury into his face.
