* There's a bit of discussion on Website/{{Tumblr}} and Website/{{4chan}}'s /co/ board on how Harvey Comics' "Little Lotta" character, whose entire personality is more or less "hahaha, she's so fat", will never get an animated adaptation due to how relevant body-shaming and self-image issues have become.

* Creator/JMichaelStraczynski's MarvelComics maxiseries ''ComicBook/TheTwelve'' contains an InUniverse example. [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] hero Dynamic Man sees a woman who's been mugged being chased by a black man. Upon grabbing the black man he finds out that this is the victim's husband. He instantly loses interest in helping either one. Likewise, when he helps out a bar that is being attacked, only to realize it's a gay bar, he disgustedly comments that this sort of thing should have been stopped a long time ago before flying away.

* NewspaperComics have fallen victim of this since the 1970's, with attempts to modernize strips by the syndicates not doing much to avoid getting them DeaderThanDisco.

* {{Ultimate|Marvel}} ComicBook/CaptainAmerica is another in-story example. In order to maintain his UsefulNotes/WorldWarII origin story for stories in the 1970s and beyond, the original Cap was said to have been frozen in an iceberg and thawed out years later. The Ultimate version goes into depth about the kind of culture shock that would happen if a man, frozen in the 1940s, actually woke up in the 2000s.

Added DiffLines:

** Obelix is usually the one to be given a love interest, though usually it's unreciprocated and takes the form of a crush on a pretty woman which helps drive the plot. In ''Asterix and Caesar's Gift'', he develops another crush on newcomer Influenza, the daughter of an innkeeper, who uses this crush to manipulate him. Influenza is stated to be a teenager; Obelix, though he has a VagueAge, is clearly an adult and is at ''least'' in his twenties [[note]]He and Asterix are the same age; according to one book, Asterix isn't as young as he looks. Asterix and Obelix could be anywhere between their twenties and their thirties[[/note]]. While it was more acceptable in times past for adult men to pursue teenaged women, to modern readers it's certainly uncomfortable.

** The ''Young Allies'' member Whitewash Jones was depicted stereotypically enough to be retconned as a stereotyped depiction of the real character in ''Young Allies Comics 70th Anniversary Special'' #1.

** The story ''Asterix and the Secret Weapon'' (La rose et la glaive) had a female bard, Bravura, come to the village, and introducing feminism to its women, who cause the men to leave the village in protest of their unfeminine ways. The main plot deals with female legionaries being introduced to fight the Gauls, because Gaulish gallantry insists they can't fight women. In the end, though the women of the village are prepared to fight, Asterix suggests they defeat the female legionaries by turning the village into a combination shopping center/spa, where the women can get mani/pedicures, get their hair done, and buy new clothes. In the end, the story ends with the men coming back and the women happily going back to their roles as housewives. Bizarrely, this comic was written in 1991, at a point where everyone should have known better. Even more bizarrely, most critical outrage was focused on a scene where Asterix punches Bravura, saying this would normalize violence against women, even though the context was completely different to domestic violence (it was in reaction to the ''second time'' Bravura had sexually harassed him publically, using her [[TinyGuyHugeGirl size difference]] to manhandle him and completely ignoring him asking her to stop - and he immediately felt horrible about hitting her, ''and'' almost all the other characters treat him like crap for the rest of the story as a result of what he did) and the comics rely on silly violent slapstick constantly.

* ''ComicBook/{{Urbanus}}'' has lots of racial stereotyping (one of the characters is called "het Negerke", roughly translated as "The Little Nigger"). This makes export in other countries rather difficult, though the series is already too self-referential Flemish for that. The series did manage to be published in the politically correct Netherlands, though.
