** He's been ping-ponging back and forth on this. He later tried to use a virus created from an [[TheInhuman Inhuman]] boy to sterilize most of the humans around the world, sincerely reasoning that this would put an end to the problems caused by overpopulation and the planet's dwindling resources.

* Sinestro falls into this, especially during his debut and the ''ComicBook/SinestroCorpsWar''. His planet was, by all accounts, lawless and wild, so he used his ComicBook/GreenLantern ring to conquer it and instill order, by brutally oppressing the entire population. When the [[Characters/GLSinestroCorps Sinestro Corps]] starts up, he seeks out people who can instill great fear, including Franchise/{{Batman}} (who refuses), so he can save the galaxy from itself. Again, by ruling the entire population through fear.

* ComicBook/NormanOsborn during the ''Comicbook/DarkReign'' saga saw himself as this, as we see in his [[spoiler:"monologue"]] at the end of ''Siege''. He says that his idea was to make a safer world by not letting just anyone put on a costume and decide to save the world by themselves, since they would end up causing more harm than good, knowing that, someday, the mutants would turn against mankind, or the Hulk would snap and go on a rampage that could kill millions. And he used the Superhuman Registration Act in his attempt, since it would be the perfect excuse - whoever was against him was automatically labeled as "non-sanctioned" and hunted down.

** Cyclops took this role after the events of ''Avengers vs X-Men'', having [[spoiler:killed Professor X]] and dedicated himself to starting a new Mutant revolution. He's been explicitly compared to Magneto by both supporters and detractors -- which is more than a little comical since a reformed Magneto is a member of Cyclops' team of rogue X-Men.

* In IDW [[TheTransformersIDW Transformers]], there are a band of aliens called the Reapers (not those [[Franchise/MassEffect Reapers]]), who all seek to end war in the universe by eliminating any violent races and destroying any thing worth fighting over.

* ComicBook/{{Spider-Man}}'s enemy, the Vulture, is a good example of the other type of this trope. Many years after his debut, he was given a backstory in which an unscrupulous business partner cheated him out of the proceeds from his inventions. He wrecked said partner's business, stole back his money, and discovered that he enjoyed the thrill. Eventually, the partner surfaced, and the usually not-murderous Vulture went after him; Spidey stopped the Vulture but taped the partner's confession.

* {{Magneto}} in ''ComicBook/XMen'' is one of the archetypal examples in the medium. He wants peace and safety for mutantkind--but he's willing to achieve it at the expense of humanity at large. Magneto's characterization varies wildly depending on who is writing him, but the most influential version is the one envisioned by Chris Claremont and fits this trope to a tee.
