** On the other hand, when the Eradicator took over as Superman during ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'', he had no qualms about using deadly force and thought he was doing what Superman would do. However, he's shown to be shaken by Guy Gardner's admiration and a couple of WhatTheHellHero speeches from ''Comicbook/LoisLane'' and ''Comicbook/{{Steel}}''.

* Dark Annisia is introduced in ''ComicBook/RedSonja'': ''Queen of Plagues'' at the head of an army aggressively fighting a mysterious plague ravaging the land. They do so by slaughtering entire cities if anyone shows signs of infection to prevent it from spreading.

* Amanda Waller, from ''SuicideSquad''. She's a tremendously shrewd politician and a MagnificentBitch in the dog-eat-dog world of DCU politics, who often has to battle her possessiveness and prejudice to do what really's right. Deep under the IronLady and the BlackBossLady, she's still human, even if she mutes her conscience on a daily basis.

* In the ''Ultimate Enemy'' trilogy, [[spoiler:Ultimate Reed Richards is willing to kill his own family to fake his death, attacks organizations that he feels are repressing science's potential for their own corrupt reasons, and tries to TakeOverTheWorld so that he can finally "fix things" the way he always knew he could. Afterwards, he creates a utopian civilization in another dimension, then brings it back and tries to ''wipe out humanity'' to replace it with this "better" version]].

** Comicbook/{{Cyclops}} took this role after the events of ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'', 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.

** Comicbook/{{Cyclops}} took this role after the events of ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'', 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 and was already a fully fledged MagnificentBastard -- which is more than a little comical since a reformed Magneto is a member of Cyclops' team of rogue X-Men.X-Men, having joined because he genuinely admired Scott, and in which capacity he occasionally remarks on how Scott sounds like him, or reprimands him for it.



** Spider-Man has often fought a high-tech KnightTemplar called Cardiac who targets people who commit evil and immoral acts, but find legal loopholes to ecape justice. And let's face it; a lot of people would take Cardiac's side here. His victims are [[AssholeVictim horrible men]] who rob people blind and cause innocents to suffer, but find ways to legally do it, always with selfish goals in mind. Even Spider-Man, who tries to stop him when he can, can't help but admire him a little sometimes.

** After Hal Jordan's home town was destroyed, he was driven insane and became the supervillain known as Parallax. His goal was the [[OmnicidalManiac destruction of the universe-]] to [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans rebuild it and make it better.]] It was noted several times by other characters that Hal believed he was acting for the right reasons, but had simply lost his way. Eventually, he would regain enough of his former morality and nobility to sacrifice himself to save the world and redeem himself, and it was later retconned that he had been [[DemonicPossession possessed]] the entire time.

** Likewise, both Buffy Season Eight and ''[[Series/{{Angel}} Angel and Faith]]'' feature Whistler as one, first with his involvement in the Twilight apocalypse (which he freely admits to Angel would have resulted in the deaths of at least two billion people), and later his plan to "evolve" the world with a magic plague. Despite the heavy casuality risk in both plans, Whistler truly believes that what he's doing is necessary to preserve the BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil and save the world. Angel is actually sympathetic to his cause in the latter, but simply refuses to help him harm any more innocents or cause any more collateral damage than he has already.

* Mr. Freeze might be well known for his cold and calculating demeanor, killing all who get in the way of his goal. But after you read his backstory you can feel sympathy for him, which makes him fall under a Tragic Villain role. Mr. Freeze started villainy after his wife contracted a fatal disease called MacGregor's Syndrome (Compared to Lung Cancer by Film Theorist Matpat). To buy more time to save his Wife, Dr. Victor Fries (Mr. Freeze's Previous Persona) froze his wife. However, after a falling out with an executive of the company he worked at caused a freak accident where Dr. Fries would be forced to take up the name of Mr. Freeze and pursue the path of villainy if he had any hope of saving his wife. His backstory is in stark contrast to other villains in Batman's Rouges Gallery.

** The ''UltimateMarvel'' take on Nuke is this. Essentially created as the ComicBook/CaptainAmerica for the UsefulNotes/VietnamWar, he eventually felt his country had betrayed him and the very values it claimed to stand for, walking off into the jungles and disappearing. When he resurfaced, he was trying to create SuperSerum to give a new army of super soldiers with which to tear down the irredeemably corrupt America that had arisen, and deliberately tried to break Captain America by confronting him with all of the atrocities that the USA has performed and the corrupt governors that have arisen, including UsefulNotes/RichardNixon and his illegal campaign of carpet bombing in Cambodia and Laos and the C.I.A.'s ousting of a democratically elected president of Chile to install the corrupt regime of Augusto Pinochet.

** In ''ComicBook/ElseworldsFinestSupergirlAndBatgirl'', Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}'s actions (virtually taking over Gotham, running it as her own private kingdom with spy eyes installed everywhere, banning parahumans from her city...) are questionable at least, but her only goal is saving innocents and protecting the good people of Gotham.
