** The Seventh Doctor story "Evening's Empire" features a misogynistic, serial rapist geek as the villain, who has been accidentally granted alien RealityWarping powers. The fantasy universe he creates and abducts women to so that he can force them into sexual slavery is a direct parody of John Norman's notoriously misogynistic and BDSM-obsessed ''Literature/{{Gor}}'' series.

** And when discussing the boook (which was drawn by Frank Quitely) in an interview, Morrison said it beats the hell out of [[ComicBook/JupitersLegacy that series]] Frank is doing with Creator/MarkMillar at Image.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Comicbook/SpiderManDeadpool'' #6 shows a poster for a movie called ''[[Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice Nighthawk v. Hyperion: Yawn of Boredom]]'', which has the tagline "You won't believe their mothers share a first name".
-->'''Deadpool''': Ugh, none of that made sense. Why were they fighting one minute, [[EasilyForgiven then best friends the next]]?
-->'''Spider-Man''': And don't worry about scenes [[SequelHook that set up the next eight movies]] -- just make this one satisfying!

* ''Comicbook/UltimateSpiderMan'' REALLY likes to dress up female lunatics in the costumes of whatever super-heroine is making Crisis Crossover trouble for the Marvel Universe today and drag them by police officers screaming their new catch-phrase. It's mostly SelfDeprecation as the series had a girl dressed as Comicbook/ScarletWitch screaming [[ComicBook/HouseOfM "I'M NOT CRAZY! I'M NOT!"]] and one dressed as Spider-Woman yelling [[Comicbook/SecretInvasion "EMBRACE CHANGE! EMBRACE CHANGE!"]] and Creator/BrianMichaelBendis writes both USM and the cross-overs involved. However, one exception was the guy in the Speedball costume yelling [[ComicBook/CivilWar NOT LIKE THIS! NOT LIKE THIS!!!]] The actual Ultimate versions of Wanda and Jessica look completely different, so we know it wasn't meant to be them. Another issue had an obese prostitute dressed like ComicBook/PowerGirl being dragged into the station. Make of that what you will.

** A ''Punisher'' issue from Nathan Edmonson's run had a scene where three of the actors from the ''[[Film/FantasticFour2015 Fantastic Four]]'' reboot (Miles Teller, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell) were apparently killed in an explosion. Ironically, the most controversial member of the cast, Creator/MichaelBJordan, was spared (due to being late to the meeting the others were attending).

They also mention that "Trang" is making the sequel, a play on the movie's director Josh Trank.

** The whole Special Zone arc of the British Comicbook/SonicTheComic was an affectionate parody of Marvel comics, most notably when Sonic walked in on a team of local superheroes in a fight with the Legion of Evil. After a comment about the property damage both sides are causing and a brief attempt to work out which side is which the cops arrive, at which point ''both'' groups make a quick retreat.

* Some fans have speculated that the' ''ComicBook/{{Justice}}'' miniseries was either a TakeThat or at least a "measured response" to the ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'' miniseries.

* The trade paperback collection for the DC event ''ComicBook/{{Invasion}}.'' had the tagline "Secret No More!", a jab at Marvel's ''Comicbook/SecretInvasion''. [[labelnote:*]]Both storylines were alien invasion stories, but while ''Secret Invasion'' dropped the ball on any long-term effects, ''Invasion!'' didn't, the biggest one being the revelation of the meta-gene.[[/labelnote]]
