** 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,]] and in particular to save all the people that had been killed. 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.

* ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'': A very {{spoiler}}ish example, but: [[spoiler:Ozymandias? Possibly the most successful Well Intentioned Extremist in fiction. He kills three million people to achieve world peace...and, as far as the reader can tell, ''it works,'' though the last panel opens up the possibility that it may have all been for nothing.]]

* 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.

** Dr. Bolivar Trask, the renowned anthropologist, became an early X-Men villain when he publicly voiced his fears that superhuman mutants might take over the world and enslave humanity. [[BewareTheSuperman Considering]] what mutant supervillains have been up to before and since in the Marvelverse, [[NoMereWindmill it's not quite fair]] to say that he was [[StrawmanHasAPoint entirely wrong]]. Nevertheless, his proposed solution -- To launch an army of [[HumongousMecha Sentinel robots]] to contain and neutralize the mutants -- qualifies him for this list.

** Wolverine also qualifies as this. While he does tend to have good intentions he tends to use murder, mauling, and more murder to achieve them. He once stabbed Rachel in the heart and lungs to keep her from killing Selene. Keep in mind that Selene is a millennia old unrepentant murderer and an energy vampire, who then went on to immediately kill more people right afterwards! Wolverine also set explosives on an island that not only contained the entirety of the mutant race at the time, but also incapacitated people in the infirmary and multiple prisoners. He did this in order to try and blow up a killer robot, but still, what would have happened if everyone hadn't been evacuated on time?
