* In ''Comicbook/AllNewWolverine'' issue 12, [[Comicbook/{{X 23}} Wolverine]] delivers one to Marvel's recent string of GoodVersusGood conflicts (''Comicbook/CivilWar'', ''Comicbook/AvengersVsXMen'', ''Comicbook/{{Axis}}'', and now ''Comicbook/CivilWarII''), with many readers finding her KirkSummation mirroring their own thoughts on such events.
-->'''Laura''': But the world will watch hero fight hero, and people will get just a little more disillusioned, a little less trusting, a little more cynical.

* Around the early NewTens, there was a prolific message board poster known as Herald, who would often complain about DC's current editorial practices. Creator/DanDidio eventually wrote Herald into ''[[Comicbook/BatmanAndTheOutsiders The Outsiders]]'' as an annoying and effeminate fanboy with the real name "[[APunnyName Harold Winer]]," and then proceeded to have him get humiliated by Looker and roughed up by her security detail.

* Dan Slott's last issue of Comicbook/SheHulk dealt with alternate universe doppelgangers of Marvel characters from "Earth A" being responsible for various OutOfCharacter moments. Ostensibly, the dialogue is Jen getting angry at the duplicates for committing identity theft, but it was also Slott's [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall response]] to continuity errors that could easily be avoided if writers stopped [[TheyJustDidntCare ignoring character history]] and editors paid more attention.

** The same run had an issue where Monica Rambeau, while reading mail from various politicians requesting that the Avengers relocate to their city, stated "Detroit? They've gotta be kidding!" This was a dig at the [[DorkAge reviled]] Detroit-era ''Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'' that was still being published at the time.

* ''DC Universe: Rebirth'' #1, the kickoff for the ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'' event, takes a dig a comic writers who do unironic DarkerAndEdgier superheroes by revealing that [[spoiler:Dr. Manhattan of ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'' is the cause of the New 52, essentially saying "If you're using ''Watchmen'' as a guide to writing mainstream superhero comics, you've missed the point entirely".]]

This view was enforced by Creator/GeoffJohns, the writer of the ''Rebirth'' one-shot, giving an interview where he claimed that the New 52 rendered certain characters (such as Superboy, whom Johns is a huge fan of) unrecognizable. [[spoiler: And of course the revelation of the issue is that the New 52 is a perversion of the previous continuity created by a madman with the power of a god.]]
