'''Instead:''' SHIELD has been disbanded, and the staff for its replacement, HAMMER, have been chosen by Norman Osborn, [[AxCrazy the Green Fucking Goblin]]. Who ''bombed his own arraignment hearing on live TV'', for Thor's sake. It's not even as if they don't know he's a psychopath!

Comic book storylines can get outlandish at times, but there's usually a sensible explanation for characters' behavior, [[MagicAIsMagicA based on the universe they're in]]. [[WhatAnIdiot Not so with these entries, though.]]

* ''Comicbook/XFactor'': The problem is evident from the outset. Jean Grey comes back from the dead without her telepathy and finds that not only are her old teammates at loose ends and [[TheMentor Charles Xavier]] missing; but BigBad {{Magneto}} [[HeelFaceTurn was running the latter's school]], the ComicBook/XMen were wanted outlaws, and Mutants [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer had a worse rep than ever]]. When she gets the old gang together they decide to gather young mutants themselves to train them in safety and away from dangerous influences, but they do not have a Cerebro unit or a telepath to use it.\\

* In the comic book backstory of ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' the U. S. government has noted that Superman is growing somewhat unstable, developing KnightTemplar tendencies, and most importantly interfering in political matters after the trauma of being manipulated into killing his wife and getting Metropolis blown up. He has also revealed his secret ID.\\

Added DiffLines:

* Halfway through ''Franchise/{{Asterix}} and the Falling Sky'', an alien spacecraft (yes, really) lands in the Gaulish village, incinerating Cacofonix's hut as it does so. Near the end of the story, said aliens have left, and another, friendlier alien wipes the memory of the villagers, who then see Cacofonix's destroyed hut and immediately assume that Fulliautomatix and Unhygenix are the culprits.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Fulliautomatix and/or Unhygenix to point out that since Cacofonix's singing is so bad that it can literally cause thunderstorms, chances are he unwittingly summoned one, a stray lightning bolt set his hut on fire, and he just doesn't want to admit what happened. Heck, this would also explain the sudden fog that popped up (actually a result of the amnesia ray) moments beforehand.\\
'''Instead:''' They deny responsibility, but in an obviously half-hearted way that fails to convince anyone they're not the culprits. As a result, they both end up gagged and tied to a tree at the end-of-story banquet, a fate usually reserved for Cacofonix himself.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Franchise/{{Tintin}}'' story ''[[Recap/TintinTheBlueLotus The Blue Lotus]]'', the son of the Chinese resistance movement's leader is discovered to have been poisoned with Rajaijah Juice, a potent hallucinogenic which induces a permanent state of madness.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That he'd be confined to his bedroom, possibly tied to his bed and sedated, and ''definitely'' not allowed access to anything he might use to hurt himself or others.\\
'''Instead:''' He's allowed to wander around the house, unsupervised, and ''carrying a huge scimitar''. This results in him nearly killing Tintin when he wakes up at the house, and then almost doing the same to Snowy when his father fails to take the hint the first time around.

* ''Comicbook/TotallyAwesomeHulk'': Amadeus Cho (the new Hulk) has just met Lady Hellbender and her goons, and Lady H has demonstrated that she's pretty powerful (able to knock Hulk on his ass at least, and was pretty confident she could take Fin Fang Foom as well). She has stated that her hobby is finding the toughest, strongest monsters their are and adding them to her collection. However, she's unimpressed with Cho, who doesn't unleash his Hulk rage like Banner did. She even ''abandons'' him when he goes to face Foom.\\
