* Played with concerning [[Comicbook/AntMan Hank Pym]] in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, though this fluctuates DependingOnTheWriter.Franchise/MarvelUniverse. Initially presented as a NiceGuy scientist, he had a number of Jerkass moments when he became Ant-Man, particularly his tendency to dismiss and verbally put down his love interest ComicBook/TheWasp. However, he ''really'' took a level when he had a mental breakdown and became the anti-heroic Yellow Jacket, eventually getting to the point he tried to cause a robot attack he could foil and look heroic. After hitting rock bottom though, he built up and became a NiceGuy again after some development.



** And is getting worse again now that he's the "Superior Iron Man".

* In his earlier appearances, Curt Connors of ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}'' was a reasonably sympathetic character when he wasn't [[SuperpoweredEvilSide the Lizard]], and even as the Lizard retained some protective instincts towards his family. He was {{retcon}}ned into being EvilAllAlong, and as of ''The Gauntlet'' he [[spoiler: completely lost control of the Lizard persona and ''killed and ate his own son'']]. After that, his more sympathetic characterization likely won't be coming back any time soon.

* Although he was already kind of a jerk, Comicbook/IronMan during the Comicbook/CivilWar/SecretInvasion period was borderline approaching villain status. Thankfully, [[Film/IronMan the movie]] helped him to get the better of it.

* In ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'', King Acorn in the pre-ContinuityReboot universe spiraled into this direction after the restoration of his body, disbanding the more battle-hardened Freedom Fighters to install his Secret Service and trying to force Sally into marrying Antoine, but went full tilt after his body was damaged by Antoine's EvilCounterpart Patch. Many fans were quite happy when the Reboot hit and he was back to being a generally nice guy again.
