* In ''ComicBook/SupergirlCosmicAdventuresInThe8thGrade'', [[ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} Linda Lee]] does this ''at least once per issue''.
** In issue #1, Linda accidentally breaks a desk in half:
--->'''Linda:''' That was... an accident! I just put my hand on it like any normal human would. Because I'm normal and human! I am!
** Linda tries to explain why she dozed off during Science Class. Unforunately she can't talk about being a hero:
--->'''Linda:''' I'm sorry, Mr. Kretch. I just had a long night... a very long night doing normal teenage Earth girl things. Yes!
** She hears someone stating that Super Speech is one of her superpowers, and she shouts:
--->'''Supergirl:''' WHAT?! I don't have super powers! I'm totally from Earth, and I like Earth things and...
** After Belinda begins imitating a duck:
--->'''Linda:''' Okay. The planet Earth officially scares me.\\
'''Lena:''' That's a weird thing to say.\\
'''Linda:''' Uh... It's an expression from... Kansas. My very normal hometown.

--->'''Belinda:''' See, I'm like, super popular. And the only thing super about Linda is...\\

** An X-Men cover promised that the heralded ''Death of Professor X!'' was "Not a hoax! Not a dream! Not an imaginary tale! This is for real!" It was actually true... for that particular story, anyway. A {{retcon}} later made it exactly what they said it wasn't -- an {{In-Universe}} hoax.[[note]]X-Men #42 (1968)[[/note]]

* At the end of ''Comicbook/YoungJustice: Sins of Youth'', Klarion (bum bum BUM) the Witch Boy ''swears'' that "everyone on Earth has been restored to their normal selves.", prompting Franchise/{{Batman}} to say [[ButWhatAboutTheAstronauts "'On Earth...' Odd phrasing." ]] As it turns out, Klarion was telling the truth... but alien bounty hunter Lobo, who was off-world throughout the ordeal, soon turned up on Earth looking for the fraggin' bastitch that turned him into a teenager.

* JoeQuesada [[WordOfGod claimed]] that ''Franchise/SpiderMan's'' unmasking would not be undone by a "magic retcon". ''Comicbook/OneMoreDay'' then proceeded to use magic to conceal his identity (as well as undo a very-well established relationship between him and Mary Jane, which Joe hated).

* Creator/DCComics covers from {{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} often include amazing premises (e.g., the hero KilledOffForReal!) accompanied by promises like "Not a hoax! Not a dream! Not an [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment imaginary story]]!" Invariably, the promise turns out to be literally true, but not specific enough to cover the cheap trick they ''did'' use (e.g., an alternate universe.)
* Creator/MarvelComics tended to do this sort of thing less often during {{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}}, but when they did...
