* In ''ComicBook/BoosterGold'' #1,000,000 (a tie-in with ''ComicBook/DCOneMillion''), a series of events that make Booster an epic-level ButtMonkey has him quit Rip Hunter's team and halfway to retiring from heroics entirely when he gets a call from Batman. Bruce shows Booster photographs from [[ComicBook/TheKillingJoke the night Joker paralyzed Barbara Gordon]], revealing that he knows Booster tried to save her ([[YouCantFightFate but sadly failed]]), and admits that he was wrong to think Booster was just a greedy idiot. He tells Booster "[[ObfuscatingStupidity Let the world think you're crazy]] if that's what it takes to be the best you can be" and adds that if he ever needs someone to just talk to, he'll be there. Then when Booster goes back to Rip to rejoin, he finds his sister Michelle alive and well, thanks to Rip bending the rules of time travel to save her. As they leave to eat lunch, Rip smiles and says "Keep it up, Dad" quietly, and the ending narration notes that despite the fact that Booster Gold is considered the BlackSheep of the Carter family, every photograph of him shows him smiling happily.

* At the end of ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} and The Cauldron'', the eponymous (money-filled) cauldron falls off a cliff onto the pirates' ship. The panel even has a caption reading "And for once, the pirates are happy!" (though Asterix and Obelix DID kick their asses as usual earlier in the book, [[ReformedButRejected albeit unjustly]]).

** Is there any trope about such karmic reparations? An overlooked detail is the fact that they decided to go back to sea due to that very beating...

* Because of {{Spider-Man}}'s status as one the first {{Chew Toy}}s of the MarvelUniverse, occasionally writers will throw him a bone here and there. Such as Creator/StanLee giving him a motorcycle, introducing him to Mary Jane, and generally making his life better after Stan's fellow plotter SteveDitko quit Marvel.
