* 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 when Peter died.

** In issue 2, Plastic Man calls out Batman on his {{hypocri|ticalHumor}}sy when Batman told their JLA teamates to ignore the problems of the Marvel Universe (including ComicBook/DoctorDoom, [[ComicBook/NewXMen the ruins of Genosha]], and ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk) yet he himself decides to keep ComicBook/ThePunisher from killing drug dealers.

* 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.

** Hulk also gave one to Tony and the other members of the Illuminati during WorldWarHulk. Hulk wanted revenge on the Illuminati for trying to exile him to a supposedly peaceful world, though in reality he ended up on a very hostile world which he eventually brought peace to and found happiness on, only to have the very ship that brought him there explode, ruining the planet and [[spoiler:killing his new wife]]. This was subject to a very blatant AuthorsSavingThrow when it was revealed that the ship couldn't have possibly ravaged a planet itself by exploding; rather, one of Hulk's [[PoisonousFriend allies]] had tampered with the ship's core, resulting in the aforementioned catastrophe. While this is seemingly meant to absolve the Illuminati of their crimes, the fact remains that their original plan failed horribly, resulting in them more-or-less making the Hulk someone else's problem while at the same time handing the means to creating an EarthShatteringKaboom to those same persons in the same package. If we think about it, most of the Illuminati have their moments of that. [[ComicBook/WarOfKings Not so long ago]], [[spoiler:Black Bolt]] gets one about his plan to end a cosmic war from all his family, advisors, and [[spoiler:Vulcan himself]].

* [[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan Ultimate Comics All-New Spider-Man #14]] opens up its first page with Gwen Stacy's '''"CAPTAIN AMERICA, YOU ARE A JERK!!"'''. She's in a warehouse, so the windows behind her are broken and disused, so it looks like she shouted so hard it shattered the windows.
** This is actually a nod towards an issue of ''Uncanny X-Men'', where Kitty Pryde calls Professor X a jerk. The positioning of Gwen in the panel's the same as it was with Kitty in that issue.

--->'''Martian Manhunter:''' Is this how you intended to "handle" Mongul, my friend?\\
'''Superman:''' Forgive me, J'onn... Looks like I failed you!\\
'''Martian Manhunter:''' No, not me, Superman --It's the entire universe that will have to pay the price of your failure! I warned you that you were dealing with forces beyond your comprehension -- but you were just too overconfident -- too egotistical -- to listen!\\
'''Superman:''' I -- I thought I could deal with it! After all, I'm Superman... aren't I?\\
'''Martian Manhunter:''' Super or not, you're still a man -- and men are fallible! Now, because of you, Mongul has the key that can unlock chaos -- and I demand to know what you intend to do about it!

** Subverted in ''Comicbook/DemonSpawn''. Villainous sorceress Nightflame shouts at Supergirl that her actions are destroying the [[PocketDimension Innerverse]] and killing its denizens. However, the Innerverse, its inhabitants and Nightflame herself are manifestations of Kara's dark side, and they are dying because she is growing up as a person, so she isn't sorry about it:
--->'''Nightflame:''' This is Innerverse! It exists upon one of the atoms that make up your own brain! It is a world of sorcery! A dying world... dying because your goodness is eating away at the evil this microcosm is composed of! [...] Look! Look at what you've done! Look at all the decay, all the destruction! Our people are dying They are being dragged down by a planet that no longer supports them!
