* [[MarvelComics Tiamut the Dreaming Celestial]] was exiled to Earth by his Celestial brethren for committing a crime against "life itself". [[spoiler:Later revealed to be a case of SealedGoodInACan. Tiamut objected when the others tried to cull the Deviants of Earth, and was punished for it. The Deviants understandably worship Tiamut as their savior.]]

* In ''TheDCU'', the PhantomZone is essentially an other-dimensional prison that holds numerous Kryptonian criminals. As such, there many stories where the prisoners escape and the heroes have to fight to throw them back into the Zone.
* The Source Wall in TheDCU is a huge cosmic barrier between the Source (the source of power behind existence itself) and the rest of creation. The Wall is decorated with the bodies and visages of all of the would be conquerors who have sought to claim the power of the Source for themselves, imprisoning them for all eternity. The Wall is one of the more effective Cans in fiction and only three people have ever escaped it. One of them, Yuga Khan (the father of {{ComicBook/Darkseid}}), managed to summon just enough power to free himself from the Wall...only to get himself imprisoned in it again in another bid to obtain the Source, this time for good. The second one was Darkseid himself, and he needed the help of the one who imprisoned him in the first place ({{Superman}}) to do it. The third was Superman, who was trapped by Darkseid and required the help of every variation of Supergirl from the last twenty years to break free.

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}}'s first appearance shows him imprisoned inside a tree. He would become free only if his captivity causes someone to shed a tear. No one missed Loki strongly enough to want to cry, so he forces Heimdall to shed a tear by poking him in the eye with a leaf.

Added DiffLines:

** Let's just say Loki was sealed and/or [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment punished]] in one way or another so many times in the years that some incarnations (like the Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard one) outright claimed to be the [[EscapeArtist bona fide expert on escaping from them]]. ''Why'' people still try to imprison Loki is a great mystery.

* In a [[TheDisneyAfternoon Disney Afternoon]] crossover event in DisneyAdventures, the [[TheLegendOfTheChaosGod Chaos God himself]], Solego, was trapped in two pieces: a crystal held his mind and a gold medallion held his powers. Uniting the pieces released him and ''that'' isn't a good thing.
* Zom, from ''Comicbook/DoctorStrange'' - a surprisingly obscure hyperdemon who was sealed in a special amphora in another dimension. ''Horrifically'' powerful. He was initially imprisoned by a coalition of cosmic beings, including Eternity and frickin' Dormammu, and when he was let out, he frightened Umar (Dormammu's even scarier sister) so much she ran home and said she'd never come out again. Considering how bad-ass he is, the "can", or amphora, must truly be the can of the gods.

* In ''JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac'', Johnny's constant murders are (partially) motivated by the need for fresh blood to paint on one of the walls in his house, which keeps the monster trapped behind it from physically getting out. [[spoiler:After Johnny's accidental suicide, the creature breaks free and is revealed to be a [[CosmicHorror horrible, bloodthirsty mass of tentacles and faces]]; Johnny's conversation with [[{{Satan}} Señor Diablo]] implies that it was made up of all the evil emanated by humanity, and its escape was serious enough [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt to require the universe to be rebooted]].]]

* Ragamuffin, from ''LenoreTheCuteLittleDeadGirl'', the eternal vampire scourge who eats people alive, is [[SealedEvilInATeddyBear trapped in a rag doll]] for the most part of the comics.
* The french comic book ComicBook/LesLegendaires introduces the [[GodOfEvil Evil God]] Anathos, whose essence was trapped a long time ago by the other gods in a living prison called the Bearer. While his origin is a typical use of the trope, the way he comes back is partially subverted, as he frees himself by taking control of the Bearer and using DemonicPossession, as well as manipulating one of the protagonists rather than another villain; the original Big Bad, Darkhell, actually attempted to prevent his return rather than helping him.
