Knowing the worm species has a weakness against loud sounds, Captain Marvel gives the Wizard a headset, picks up one of the electric guitars laying around, and starts to play like "[[LawyerFriendlyCameo Hendricks]]".

* Played with in ''Comicbook/AstroCity'' with Sticks, a [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys talking gorilla from a militaristic gorilla society]] who left his home to pursue a career as a rock drummer. Due to his superior strength and agility, both heroes and villains from Astro City wanted to recruit him, making his efforts to simply be a musician difficult. Ultimately he became a hero, working alongside some of Astro City's more recognized heroes until he announced to the press that he was auditioning other music-themed heroes to start their own super-team/rock band. As of the end of his arc the new team was voting on a new name. Sticks was partial to "Powerchord."
** Recent stories in ''Comicbook/AstroCity'' revealed a number of heroes and heroines during the history of Romeyn Falls (as Astro City was originally called) who carried a strong musical influence, usually with powers associated with the popular music of the times. Among the more prominent were Silverstring (a demon slaying troubadour from the 1870s), Mister Cakewalk (a Ragtime-inspired vigilante from the 1900s) and Jazzbaby (a jazz-themed heroine from the '20s).

* Subverted horribly in a Franchise/NationalLampoon parody of ''Music/YellowSubmarine'' that chronicled the downside of Music/TheBeatles' career - as in the movie, they attempt to rout the forces of evil with a song about love - and crank out 'Helter Skelter"...Paul later comments "That didn't quite work out like we'd planned..."

* More than once, the eponymous protagonist of the ''ScottPilgrim'' series has used the power of rock against his enemies, most notably at the ends of volumes one and three. Since he himself isn't that great a musician, usually other people are helping him out. And the music alone isn't enough to truly ''defeat'' the opponent, but it does weaken him sufficiently for Scott to take him out with some good old-fashioned fisticuffs.
