** To back his words up, Doom says that he once took a journey through various alternate futures and the ''only'' one where Earth wasn't either destroyed or a dystopia was the one where Doom rules.

* In ComicBook/AvengersAcademy, Jeremy Briggs unveils "Clean Slate," a formula that will take away superpowers which at first seems great as it allows Mettle and Hazmat to be human again. However, Briggs reveals he plans to fire off missiles to spread Clean Slate around the globe and take away ''everyone's'' superpowers. He says this will stop the massive battles and destruction of cities and he'll give powers back to those he thinks are worthy. Of course, the fact that Briggs is a sociopath and his view of "worthy" is warped to say the least, the team realize they have to stop him, no matter how right he claims to be.

** And in ''SupermanRedSon'' where Superman was raised under the belief of communism, he does just this. Taking over Russia and becoming a Dictator to protect the people. He tries to do this to the whole world but is stop by Lex Luthor with a simple [[ArmorPiercingQuestion note]] that makes him realize he is no better than Braniac trying to put the world in a bottle.

* The ''SquadronSupreme'' limited series was built on this trope, as the Squadron vows to use their super-powers to cure all of society's ills -- even if it requires restricting civil rights and individual liberties to do so.

* General Zod, long-time enemy of ComicBook/{{Superman}}, has been reinvented as this over the last year in the "World of New Krypton" storyline. Normally a conquering madman, he has been named military commander of New Krypton and is devoted to protecting the new planet by any means necessary, but he has been shown to be fairly honorable and decent. He cracked down on his sadistic minion Gor, promoted Superman in his place when he was incapacitated by an assassin, and came to appreciate his former enemy while still maintaining views that are much harsher than those of Superman's. If New Krypton is destroyed, [[UnstoppableRage all bets are off]].

* It's a good thing that {{Superman}} is GenreSavvy enough to be freaked out by the possibility of becoming this trope, since his power would make fulfilling any goals he may set pretty easy.

* Franchise/{{Batman}} himself comes close to this from time to time, especially in the FrankMiller variations. It's implied that the reason Batman sticks so close to [[ThouShaltNotKill his code of no killing]] is because he's afraid that once he crossed that line, he would become this.

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]]. ----

* SelfDemonstrating/{{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.

* NewsPaperComic ''ComicStrip/MinimumSecurity'' has Kranti, who thinks the best way to save the earth is to [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans eliminate 99% of humanity and return to a hunter-gatherer society]] (well, mostly gatherer since {{Talking Animal}}s exist). Anyone who wants to do anything less is considered weak and ineffective. Fortunately, Kranti herself is weak and ineffective, and probably crazy, now that she's decided to [[spoiler: murder the CEO of a power company to stop a nuclear power plant being built]].
