* Soon after end of their next CrisisCrossover, Marvel likes to release an one-shot poking fun at it and many of the problems they are criticised for at the time. Of course, they tend to do that so often that fans are starting to get annoyed with Marvel constantly poking fun at their own problems, but never trying to fix them. And you can do the "Look, we care about or CListFodder heroes, here are ones with their own books, that won't last six issues!" gag only so many times before it becomes insulting.

* ''[[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.]]
** 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.

* Near the end of ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational'' crossover "Breakdowns", ComicBook/BlueBeetle comments on the increasingly convoluted series of events the team is facing, saying that it seems like something a pair of mediocre comic writers would come up with. This sort of humor was commonplace in the series. A RunningGag involved former members of the "[[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica real Justice League]]" like ComicBook/{{Hawkman}} and ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} complaining about how the JLI was ruining their team's reputation by acting like a bunch of incompetent goofballs and jokesters.

* 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.
