* Superboy Prime could count. Yeah, he's skimmed over the MoralEventHorizon and many believe that he's completely irredeemable, but just look at how he got this way. Right after he learned that he was a counterpart to his childhood hero, his (and supposedly our) universe was wiped out and [[RetGone removed from history]]. Afterwards, everyone just forgot about him, while he was isolated in a pocket universe - only to be used by [[ManipulativeBastard Alexander Luthor Jr.]]. And now that he's [[NoFourthWall back in our reality]], he's completely aware that [[TheScrappy everyone hates him.]] He's one JerkassWoobie [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Destroyer of Worlds.]]

* During the Vietnam War, an American soldier had an affair with a Vietnamese woman, and abandoned her shortly after. Their daughter was raised alone by her mother, until at ten years old she was separated from her, kiddnapped, and sold into slavery. That girl would grow up to become [[ComicBook/TeenTitans Cheshire]], and would end up repaying the world's cruelty to her a hundred times over, becoming a lethal assassin, genocidal maniac, and all around horrible person.

* Evil Ernie from ''Creator/ChaosComics'' was emotionally and physically abused by both his parents. As if that wasn't enough, he had telepathic powers that allowed him to find out that his neighbors knew about his abuse for years, but didn't do anything out of fear of retaliation because his wealthy parents controlled the business that was the number one employer in town. It was this that finally pushed Ernie over the edge, turning him into a serial killer and later, thanks to the original not-so-heroic [[ComicBook/LadyDeath Lady Death]], into the mass-murdering spearhead of a [[ZombieApocalypse zombie apocalypse that would ultimately wipe out the United States and lead to an apocalyptic nuclear war.]]

* In the LooseCanon tie-in to ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFiendshipIsMagic'', Sombra is presented as this, in contrast to the BlankCharacter of the show. Sombra was originally just an amnesiac orphan unicorn in the Crystal Empire's orphanage, a shy and gentle colt with a speech impediment who was constantly passed over by potential parents and [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer picked on mercilessly by the rest of the orphans]]. He had only one friend, a ditzy unicorn filly named Radiant Hope. His StartOfDarkness came when, on the first visit to the yearly Crystal Faire, the Crystal Heart showed him a vision of his becoming a terrifying monster, in contrast to his friend's vision of becoming a princess. Every year after, on that day, he would be left bedridden with immense pain, which got increasingly worse until one day, when he started ''[[BodyHorror slowly disintegrating]]''! When his friend saves his life with a unique healing spell, he becomes convinced that his own descent into evil will soon follow. He promptly runs away from the orphanage, hoping to prevent this from happening, and in the process he finally finds out who he is: a creation of an EldritchAbomination called the Umbrum that has been imprisoned deep beneath the Crystal Empire, sent to sabotage the Crystal Heart and set it free. This pushes him over the edge, convincing him that YouCantFightFate, and he went back to the Empire to steal the Crystal Heart. It wasn't until he was confronted by Princess Amora, who revealed she had known who/what he was all along and had simply left him in the orphanage, hoping he would somehow "choose good" even when he had nothing and nopony except Radiant Hope, that the last vestiges of his old self snapped and he [[ThenLetMeBeEvil truly embraced darkness]]. InUniverse, even ''Twilight Sparkle'' expresses sympathy for Sombra after reading his backstory in his old diary, although Cadance pointedly reminds Twilight not to forget that a sympathetic backstory doesn't excuse the evil he did.
