** A couple of examples in ''ComicBook/{{Bizarrogirl}}'':
*** ComicBook/LanaLang gets angry with Kara when the depressed teenager won't even investigate an explosion.
---->'''Lana:''' You're telling me you're not even going to go look? At all? What if someone needs your help? What if someone's hurt? Look around, Kara. People out there need you. You can use your gifts to --\\
'''Kara:''' "Gifts"? These "gifts" make a target, Lana. They make me dangerous to everyone around me. And as you'll recall, the last time I tried to help someone, I got a planet full of my people blown up --\\
'''Lana:''' That wasn't your fault and you know it --\\
'''Kara:''' It doesn't matter whose fault you think it was, Lana! 80,000 people were put in danger because of something I did... and then Supergirl couldn't save any of them.\\
'''Lana:''' Fine. You wanna wallow in self-pity and guilt while people need you? You want to ignore these people crying out for someone to help them? That's great. You do that, Kara. Just don't expect me to support you while you do it.
*** Bizarro Jimmy and Bizarro Lois chew SelfDemonstrating/{{Bizarro}} out when he tries to flee rather confronting an enemy.
---->'''Bizarron Jimmy:''' You am... leaving?!\\
'''Bizarro Lois:''' Running away am not like Bizarro. That am more like Clark Kent! You don't want to be like Clark Kent, right, Bizarro?\\
'''Bizarro:''' Rrr...\\
'''Bizarro Lois:''' No, Bizarro #1! You can't run! You can't leave Bizarro World in hour of need!

* {{Spider-Man}} ends up being so disturbed by ComicBook/IronMan's morally dubious actions (such as imprisoning non-registered superhumans indefinitely without trial) during Marvel's ComicBook/CivilWar crossover that he defects from the pro-Registration side to the anti-Registration side.

* During the second volume of ''ComicBook/UltimateXMen'', shortly after [[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan the Peter Parker of the Ultimate Universe]] [[TheHeroDies died]], Kitty tries to stop Bobby Drake, Rogue, and [[ComicBook/UltimateFantasticFour Johnny Storm]] from trying to save people by saying it was pointless and even pointing to the memory of Peter as an example of heroes dying and to not get involved. However, this pissed off Johnny, who called her out on this, retorting by pointing out that unlike he and Bobby, Kitty ''wasn't'' there to help Peter when he died.

* In ''[[ComicBook/CourtneyCrumrinAndTheNightThings Courtney Crumrin and the Monster Holiday]]'', Uncle Aloysius receives one from an innkeeper for his failing to notice the emotional weaknesses of Courtney, which resulted in her trusting and being fed on by a vampire. The innkeeper points out that Courtney is just a child and has been forced to grow up quickly to take care of herself, while her uncle treated her "like a piece of inconvenient baggage" on the trip.

In ''[[ComicBook/CourtneyCrumrinAndTheNightThings Courtney Crumrin ''Wonder Woman Vol. 3'' issue #2, Cassandra vents her anger on her:
-->'''Cassandra:''' Diana...? Is it really you?\\
'''Diana:''' It's really me, Cass. You okay?\\
'''Cassandra:''' Am I okay? Let's see... The gods abandoned us. Paradise Island disappeared. My boyfriend was murdered... and the person I looked up to more than anyone else in the world... left without saying a word.\\
'''Diana:''' I was trying to protect you.\\
'''Cassandra:''' You deserted me. Me AND Donna. And now, for all we know, she could be dead.

* You may have noticed that Hawkman gets these quite a bit. He even got one in his own series, when Green Arrow spent a page detailing why his "love" for Kendra Saunders is ''creepy'', to say the least. See, Kendra is a reincarnation of Shiera (Hawkgirl), but ''doesn't'' have any memories of her past lives (Shiera inhabited the body of the actual Kendra Saunders, who committed suicide, this time around), but Carter just... assumed they'd be together again, and pushes his expectations of Shiera onto Kendra. Green Arrow notes that Carter knows ''nothing'' about Kendra, he hasn't ever made her smile and that she's ''twenty'' while he's in his thirties. He ends by simply stating that what Carter has isn't love; it's obsession.
