** Komodo finds this speech so bad that once he's escaped she's later found by Comicbook/WarMachine [[DespairEventHorizon crying inconsolably]] and begging not to be depowered.

** Komodo finds this speech so bad that once he's escaped she's later found by Comicbook/WarMachine [[DespairEventHorizon crying inconsolably]] and begging not to be depowered. Spider-Man thought Komodo was given her powers by the government. In fact, Komodo's powers were the result of months of research following years of study, and allowed her to regrow legs she lost in a car accident so severe it took paramedics two hours to cut her out of the wreck. The threat hit harder and deeper than Spidey probably intended.

** In ''[[ComicBook/Supergirl2005 The Hunt for Reactron]]'', ComicBook/LoisLane gives Catherine Grant a very scathing -and very right- speech, accusing her from having become a war-mongering tool.
-->'''Lois Lane:''' Are you even a '''reporter''', Cat? Don't you have a '''shred''' of integrity? Or is '''pandering''' with lies and innuendo just that much '''easier''' for you? This '''isn't''' journalism! It's '''PROPAGANDA'''! And '''that''' makes you a '''tool'''. How you can '''stand''' to look at yourself in the mirror, Cat?

* [[Radio/TheShadow The Shadow]] is quite prone to giving them out to his enemies prior to dispatching them. Case in point:
--> Tonight, you pay the penalty for your crimes. A big man on the force. Tipped off to certain crimes by crooks, to add to your prestige. In return you have protected them when they needed it, and have been paid for that protection. Cover-up man for a group of criminals! That is ended now. Your pals are dead... Come. Learn how The Shadow deals in justice!

* [[Radio/TheShadow The Shadow]] is quite prone to giving them out to his enemies prior to dispatching them. Case in point:
point, the "My City" poem from ''In The Coils of Leviathan''
--> Tonight, you pay Without the penalty for spur of retribution your crimes. A big man on the force. Tipped off to certain crimes by crooks, to add to crime becomes mundane, your prestige. In return evil intent an uncontrolled inconsideration gliding toward the salavic pool of insipid casual pastime--a sort of breathing puppet gesture with no effort of personal involvement--while you cry that you are owed a living by the World. The Crime of your crime becomes insult in addition to injury; the unasked question I take as mine to answer.
--> Isn't your hand the hand that moves against the rewards of Humanity with a self-love inspired single-mindedness...isn't it your boast that you search not for shadowed anonymity in the lee of brighter personalities, but a well-lit corridor of focused admiration, a tube of consent to siphon the praise of one's imagined betters? Your foot feels for the top step and I take it from you...as you fall through the night my laughter follows...I will laugh behind you for the ones you gracelessly pillaged of their belief in hope. I will point and mock behind you for the ones who lost their ability to justify your life: they were to be your last escape. I will be there by the wall, in the corner of your laughter, in the hollow of your comfort, in the tide of your love-making. To say to you thou shalt not sleep but to dream of me; thou shalt not wake but to see my figure leaning across the path of your life; I will deny you the joys of a life earned at the expense of the still believing...you will never again smile in amusement without the crinkled eyelid of doubt.
--> I will haunt you as the chosen focus you longed to be. How often
have protected them when they needed it, you held out your bruised subjects for the hoped-for off-stage applause of an imagined presence: a Mastermind, a Potent Force, casting in your own truncated self-image some Lord of Crime, mailed fist holding all the cords of Award and Despair. It was he who would turn his eye from the Banquet at your catalogue of infliction to dispense the rewards you believed yourself to have been paid for earned in imitation of this Figment, this Icon, this Power. You stretched beyond your full height in grateful anticipation, not expecting to find me standing across the laden table. When you courted the notoriety you saw as laurel, you could not guess who'd spread the table and polished the proffered crown, holding it just out of your reach above the pit of undulations, the pit of lamentation, the eternal falling dream of not daring to open your eyes...
--> Cry out
that protection. Cover-up man for a group of criminals! That is ended now. Your pals you are dead... Come. Learn how The Shadow deals not the only one to blame: is this the excuse you offer to the blameless who now blame you? Cry out that you are sorry and the repetition will only paper the blank wall of dread around you with the accusing epitaph of sorrow you caused into being by the wake of your passage through these other's lives. Cry out in justice!anger, in petulance, in blind fury, rage and impotence...it will only echo back in fugued octaves of your fear.
--> Would you tell me now of your self-loathing, your bile, your illness of spirit and substance, of your inner betrayal, your inner affliction? '''As if I didn't know?'''
--> Would you tell me now, at long last, of your Repentance?
--> In my laughter you will hear my final judgement:
--> ''Tell it to the Worms''.

** Issue 235 has Sonic handing out a scathing one to Silver, after the former is fed up with the latter's InspectorJavert tendencies. For emphasis, Sonic delivers it by first smashing Silver through a wall, and nearly spin dashing him to oblivion.

In response, Gamma delivers a speech of his own in cold monotone as he counters the argument, punctuating it by knocking Omega on his metallic backside with a few well-placed shots.
