* Comic books and comic book storylines that are all but universally considered terrible often end up being mocked in another comic book from the same company or even the same comic book series from which the reviled story came.
** The [[OverlyLongGag longest-running gag]] in the series: Whatever you do, don't talk to Franchise/SpiderMan about [[ComicBook/TheCloneSaga clones]]. Heck, even someone else showing up in the same costume as him will set him off!
-->'''Spider-Man''': I知 telling you now, if I ever see another clone again, I値l throw it off the nearest bridge. [[IncrediblyLamePun Thus making an obscene clone fall]].
** Even Spidey's supporting characters get in on it:
-->'''Mary Jane''': If we're doing the clone thing again I'm moving back to L.A.

* "Superheavy", the Batman storyline where Jim Gordon becomes Batman, had a ''very'' mixed reception from readers, mostly due to the chocie of Batman successor. When Bruce Wayne returns as Batman, he rescues Jim and says "who died and made you Batman?" Doubles as a joke between the two, of course, but the entire issue is filled with meta commentary about Bruce Wayne's return.

** Also, specifically, the Pre-Flashpoint Wally West says someone stole time, relationships and hope from the universe. This is exactly what people criticised the New 52 for: de-aging characters whose ages ''never'' factored into their appeal, the legacies of the DC universe (which Wally is actually the poster boy for), the removal of love interests and marriages, and the overall grim tone of the universe.

* Creator/BenTempleton appears in the ''ComicBook/WormwoodGentlemanCorpse'' issue "Segue to Destruction" at the Dead Alley, where Wormwood describes him as "my biographer". ''None'' of the cast have any respect for him at all, and mock his defensively citing his three Eisner nominations: "No idea what those are, but he seems obsessed with them."

* ''[[ComicBook/DCRebirth DC Universe: Rebirth #1]]'' sets the stage to be a major one towards [[spoiler:''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' by having the malevolent force that caused ComicBook/TheNew52 be none other than Dr. Manhattan, causing the heavy cynicism of the 90s through today to be laid solely at this universe's feet.]]
