* TheJoker from ''ComicBook/FlashPoint'' is even more of an example, [[spoiler: as [[GenderFlip she]] is none other than ''Martha Wayne'' aka our usual Batman's mother, who [[DespairEventHorizon completely]] [[GomadFromTheRevelation lost it]] when a young Bruce was murdered. ([[DeathByOriginStory Instead of her and Dr. Thomas Wayne]], like we all know.)]] [[spoiler: Thomas himself may count, as ''he'' is the one who goes Batman in this universe and for exactly the same reason.]]

** He picks up more experience than he'd like later on: during the {{Wildstorm}} crossover ''Armageddon'', he gets trapped in the Wildstorm Universe in such a way that he cannot leave and will eventually blow up, killing everyone in the Wildstorm universe. He does everything he can to prevent this from happening, but [[spoiler:while he does eventually get cured and sent home, Nicola blows up the universe instead, but also recreates it in its post InfiniteCrisis incarnation]].

* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in the ''ComicBook/EmperorJoker'' storyline. He decided that any universe where not only his tragic past ([[MultipleChoicePast whatever that was]]) could happen, but a guy like the one he became could be left alive and allowed to run rampant...well, a universe like that didn't deserve to exist.

** Furthermore, after being badly injured and put in a coma following the Infinite Crisis events, Captain Atom, making the best out of the hard learned lessons of the past months, personally captures, enslaves, and trains (by fighting to death in his personal arena) several alternate versions of people he knew, for the expressed purpose of conquering and laying waste to the entire
Multiverse, in revenge for his past Woobie life. [[FanonDiscontinuity Or not.]]

** In an alternate future timeline explored by Waverider in ''ComicBook/Armageddon2001'', Captain Atom loses his entire family to a drive-by shooting, he can't get the police to investigate the murders due to honoring the rights of the criminals responsible, and even worse, the bodies of the victims are unceremoniously dumped in a landfill. Understandably pissed, Captain Atom not only takes out his anger by killing the criminals responsible for the deaths, he also destroys the city responsible for letting the crime happen and doing nothing about it. Waverider thinks that this might bewhat turns Captain Atom into Monarch, only to later find out [[spoiler:that it was Hank Hall of Hawk and Dove that turns into Monarch]].

* 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.]]
