* ''DC Universe: Rebirth'' #1, which kickstarts the ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'' event, nails Wham Moment after Wham Moment as ComicBook/TheNew52 is flipped on its head: [[spoiler:[[ComicBook/TheFlash Wally West]] returns to continuity, there have been ''three'' Jokers, the New 52 Superman is revealed to be an imposter and that the real one is the pre-''ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}}'' Superman, the Justice Society and the Legion of Super-Heroes are still around but locked away memory-wise and -- the big kicker -- the creator of Prime Earth and the cause of the loss of ten years is ''not'' Barry Allen's fault, but the fault of ''[[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Doctor Manhattan]]''.]]

* Being a LongRunner, ''ComicBook/{{Diabolik}}'' has had its fair share of these ([[SubvertedTrope plus a few that looks like this at first until you read the whole thing]]):

** The classic "Under Siege" story arc from volume 1, issues 275-277. It starts out as a normal day at the Avengers Mansion, only for the Masters of Evil to suddenly attack and promptly curb-stomp the Avengers. They than toss the team out of the Mansion and take it as their new base. It concludes in an epic battle between the Avengers and Masters that concludes with Blackout dead, the Super-Adaptoid loose again, Jarvis in the hospital after being brutalized by Baron Zemo, and the Mansion wrecked. It really shook things up for the team, making them feel more vulnerable than ever both in and out of universe. The events of the arc haunted the Avengers for some time afterwards, with Captain America and Hercules spending the next several issues in a deep depression because of their perceived failures.

Added DiffLines:

** They made another in the next comic line at 2016, whereas at the end of the first volume... [[spoiler:Cap is revealed to be a HYDRA double agent by normally proclaiming 'Hail HYDRA'. This renders 75 years of story time about the patriotic Captain America either annulled or going to be very awkward.]]

** His classic story ''ComicBook/BatmanTheKillingJoke'' is one for the Batman franchise. Joker shoots Barbara Gordon in the spine, leaving her paralyzed from the waist down, and since she isn't able to fight crime as Batgirl anymore she goes on to be MissionControl for the Batman family and the Justice League. Joker also gets a tragic backstory that he hints may be fabricated, making him even more mysterious than he was before.

** His ''ComicBook/YoungbloodJudgmentDay'' was this for ''ComicBook/{{Youngblood}}'' - Knightstrike is acussed of killing Riptide, team is disbanded and [[spoiler: entire Universe turns out to be plunged into DarkerAndEdgier setting by magic book]]. Same with his {{Supreme}} - the very first issue is this for the previous series, revealing that Supreme is only one of many versions of Superman-esque character and now reality rewrites itself, giving him new life and new memories.

* Many of the ''SonicTheComic'' {{Wham Episode}}s involved [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Super Sonic]], like when he separated from Sonic or when he got amnesia. Some {{Wham Episode}}s unrelated to him were Knuckles being Really700YearsOld or the early reveal that Sonic "created" Robotnik.
