--->'''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!

* Lately a lot of ''ComicBook/XMen'' issues have been dedicated to calling out Professor Xavier for his regular abuse of his powers on the people he cares about. Guess he forgot his MindOverManners.
** ComicBook/{{Cyclops}}, despite being very harsh on Professor X, has done a lot of morally dubious things himself for the sake of maintaining the ever-dwindling mutant population. He's been called out on it by Wolverine of all people; Beast quit the team in protest over his actions and Nightcrawler was prepared to chew him out thoroughly [[spoiler:before he died]].
*** Though in at least one case, Wolverine's issue wasn't ''what'' Cyclops did, so much as the fact that he did it and still acted like he was morally superior. Logan just didn't like the hypocrisy, although recruiting the emotionally damaged 16 year old for the wetwork squad probably did not help.

* Done rather humourously in an arc of ''Comicbook/UltimateSpiderMan'' which sees Peter mind-swapped with Logan by Jean Grey she gets sick of Logan hitting on her. For Peter, the result was as thus: he had [[HumiliationConga woken up in Wolverine's body, freaked out, tried to call the X-Men for help (and got laughed at for his trouble,) accidentally cut off his own fingers, got a car flipped over on him, gotten tased, arrested and shot in the face by anti-mutite police, and then had to take crap from Wolverine (who nearly got him kicked out of school, lipped off to Aunt May, tried to get some from Mary Jane and nearly blew Peter's secret identity) about his life.]] Although swapping his brain with Peter was an unintended side-effect, not surprisingly, Peter -- who didn't ask for any of this, has had an utterly shitty experience because of it, and doesn't appreciate Jean's rather glib attitude to the situation -- is quick to give her a rather [[ClusterFBomb expletive-strewn]] piece of his mind once it's all sorted out. Once he's stormed off, Jean is left rather shaken and promising to send him a basket of something in apology. That would piss anyone off.

** ''ComicBook/ElseworldsFinestSupergirlAndBatgirl'': Supergirl can't believe Comicbook/{{Batgirl}} appears more interested in keeping her out of Gotham than in catching the freaking Joker.
--->'''Batgirl:''' Pay attention you are violating my borders. Leave now, and you'll avoid further pain.\\
'''Supergirl:''' What?! Lex Luthor is being tortured somewhere in Gotham, and you're attacking ME? Is keeping me out of Gotham worth his life?\\
'''Batgirl:''' You know the rules. No paranormals in Gotham.\\
'''Supergirl:''' You're sick! This is Lex Luthor we're talking about! Or are people who live in Gotham the only ones worth protecting?

** 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 Illuminati has 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]].

At one point, an elderly African-American asks where the (white) Hal Jordan was to help his people when he was so willing to help alien beings throughout the galaxy.
