* Subverted in the post-Zero Hour ''Comicbook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'' with [[ShapeShifter Chameleon]], who starts out speaking none of the language the other characters use, and spends quite a while gradually learning the language and speaking it very brokenly... right up until [[WhamEpisode the payoff]] of an {{Arc}} which [[TheReveal reveals]], among other things, that he's been perfectly fluent for quite a while and was simply [[ObfuscatingStupidity concealing it]] so that nobody would suspect him of impersonating certain key figures.

* Yondu Udonta, of {{Marvel|Comics}}'s sadly-defunct ''[[Comicbook/TheAvengers Avengers]]'' spinoff ''GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', originally spoke like this. However, as of when the Guardians got their own series, he'd become quite articulate... even as he [[CharacterDevelopment became more of a believable alien tribal shaman]] and less of a NobleSavage in blue body paint.

* Corollary: [[ComicBook/TeenTitans Starfire]] of DCComics can leap over the whole hurdle of communication by kissing someone to learn their language. Any brief physical contact will do, but kissing is the method she prefers.

* ''Comicbook/{{Superman}}'' has nearly every incarnation of SelfDemonstrating/{{Bizarro}}. "[[SupermanTheAnimatedSeries You no am Superman!]] ''Me'' am Superman!"
** Subverted lately in that characters have come to learn 'BizarroSpeak' as a recognized language. Bizarro isn't stupid, just complicated (and homicidal).
