* While writing her ''Comicbook/PoisonIvy'' mini-series, Amy Chu included a scene where Ivy kills a sleazy coworker who tries to blackmail her into having sex with him.

* ''Comicbook/UncannyAvengers Annual'' had Mojo being told by his producers that modern audiences prefer stories that, instead of having "structured character arcs" and "something to say" are "[[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible artsy and indecipherable]]", "[[TheChrisCarterEffect spinning an endless web of strange mysteries]]" that keeps the "feeble-minded viewers lost and guessing" and will get critical praise because "[[TakeThatCritics reviewers won't want to admit not understand it, even when there is nothing to understand]]". For many it appears to be jab at both ''Avengers'' books written at the time by Jonathan Hickman and [[TakeThatAudience fans who are preferring them to]] ''Uncanny Avengers''.

* The {{Elseworlds}} comic ''Comicbook/BatmanWhiteKnight'' reveals that the original Creator/PaulDini / Creator/BruceTimm version of Comicbook/HarleyQuinn and the DarkerAndEdgier / HotterAndSexier Comicbook/{{New 52}} Harley are two separate people, with the former having been replaced after she abandoned the Joker when he [[MoralEventHorizon crossed the line by killing Jason Todd]]. When the original Harley returns, she kicks her replacement in the face and then insults her {{Stripperific}} outfit. It may also double as a TakeThatAudience aimed at the fans who think the Joker is sexy and wish to live vicariously through Harley:
-->'''Original Harley''': Get it straight, sister. You love Joker. I love Jack. You loved his flaws. I loved him ''despite'' his flaws.

* Creator/AlanMoore's ''LeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' features his interpretation of the Antichrist by way of school shooters: a boy who learns what he's destined to be and proceeds to snap and murder/rape his way through his school, including his two best friends and worst enemy, other schoolmates and staff, then hide for the next few years doing nothing but down anti-psychotics with only the head of his former headmaster (and backer, [[GoneHorriblyRight the whole Antichrist thing was his idea]]) for company. When discovered, he grows into a multiple-eyed, lightning-pissing giant and kills [[spoiler:Allan]] before being [[spoiler:curbstomped by Literature/MaryPoppins, who might be {{God}}]]. Now, [[Literature/HarryPotter given that this school was only accessible by train, by going through a fake wall in King's Cross station...]]

* ''[[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.
