* ''[[ComicBook/NickSpencersCaptainAmerica Captain America: Sam Wilson]]'' had a gang of [[StrawmanU parody student leftists]] who wanted to murder anyone who they considered sexist or racist, who called themselves the "Bombshells". This appeared to be a slap at ''ComicBook/DCComicsBombshells'', a DC {{Elseworld}} series featuring a WorldOfActionGirls and CastFullOfGay that was popular with the kind of politically active female superhero fan who the ''Captain America'' comic was caricaturing.

* After Creator/MarkMillar left Ultimate Comics, a continuation of his title Comicbook/TheUltimates was given to Creator/JephLoeb, who created the terrible ''Ultimates 3'' and the even worse ''Comicbook/{{Ultimatum}}''. After that Millar returned to writing comics in UltimateUniverse. The ''very first page'' of his ''Ultimate Comics Avengers'' starts with Comicbook/NickFury looking at the mess caused by Ultimatum and saying "What the #$%^&? I leave for ten minutes and everything goes to hell." . He gives another one towards Loeb (and possibly towards mainstream Marvel) in issue four of ''Ultimate Avengers vs New Ultimates''. Tony Stark gives ten million dollars to charity in exchange for Thor promising to talk like a normal person again. He started using the whole "Faux Shakespearean" thing during Loeb's run.

* During the 90's, ''[[Comicbook/TheMightyThor Thor]]'' started wearing a new costume after becoming part of a team known as the Godpack. Creator/WarrenEllis (like many people) thought the new look was stupid, so one of the first things he did when he started writing the book was have Thor stop wearing a costume altogether (instead opting for a shirtless look), while taking a shot at his Godpack outfit to boot:

* Issue #7 had a scene where the real Thor from Norse mythology was mortified after the Five shaved his trademark beard and dyed his red hair blond, causing him to resemble his [[Comicbook/TheMightyThor Marvel counterpart]]. The same issue also had an appearance from a parody of [[Comicbook/SubMariner Namor the Sub-Mariner]] called "Nabob the Sub-Moron," complete with a mangling of Namor's patented "Imeprius Rex!" BattleCry.

* ''Comicbook/TheBraveAndTheBold'' #74 had a scene of Batman swinging from a flagpole and claiming ''he'' did it first.
-->'''Batman''': Here's one I did before anybody, including [[Comicbook/SpiderMan a certain web-spinning Peter-come-lately]]!

-->'''Nabob''': Tyrannosaurus Rex! Hmm... That doesn't sound right! [[OedipusRex Oedipus Rex]]? Creator/RexHarrison?
** Issue #10 brough back Nabob and introduced "[[Comicbook/SpiderMan Cobweb Kid]]" and "[[Comicbook/FantasticFour The Kookie Quartet]]," all of whom ended up thoroughly humiliated by the end of the story.

* An early example of DC and Marvel taking shots at one another occurred in a Comicbook/LegionOfSuperheroes story from ''Adventure Comics'' #350 back in 1966. After transforming into a giant spider in order to web up a monster, Chameleon Boy had this to day:

* There's a scene in ''Comicbook/TheLazaurusContract'' where a H.I.V.E. scientist says that physicists being able to film an electron leaving an atom almost makes up for Creator/JJAbrams' ''Film/StarTrek'' reboot.

* ''Justice League Quarterly'' #16 was a series of in-universe comic books featuring General Glory, DC's then-current CaptainErsatz Captain America. For the most part these were [[AffectionateParody Affectionate Parodies]] of fifties monster comics (as "General Glory's Really Scary Stories", a parody of ''Captain America's Weird Tales''), Silver Age superheroes (and more SelfDeprecation on DC's Silver Age than Cap's return at Marvel) and even ''Comicbook/TheDarkKnightReturns'' (as "Return on a Dark Night"). The final story, however, is "The Power ... And The Platitude!" by Indulgence Comics in which the "Wildbloods" free an insane General Glory and Ernie from suspended animation in a vicious parody of Creator/ImageComics in general and Youngblood freeing John Prophet in particular. In the FramingStory, the real Glory calls it "downright pointless", and the guy he's showing the comics to says "General Glory should ''stand'' for something. He shouldn't be involved in meaningless violence for its own sake."
