* ''ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck'' has Scrooge giving off several. One of the most awesome boasts comes when he faces down Flintheart Glomgold:
---> Villains of more noble ilk than you have made me cautious and resourceful and scrappy. But ''you'' just '''made me mean!''' (cue GlowingEyesOfDoom).
* ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'': "I am Franchise/{{Superman}}. [[Music/{{REM}} I can do anything.]]"
* ''ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'', after the ComicBook/XMen have been completely annihilated by the Hellfire Club: "Ok, suckers... you've taken yer '''best shot'''. NOW IT'S '''MY''' TURN!"
* Prometheus from DC comics throws these out with just about every other line of his dialogue, but his boast upon meeting Batman for the second time is one of his best: " I beat you senseless last time just to show you I could. This time, I'm going to hamstring you, lobotomize you with an icepick, and leave you drooling for the others to find. Let's go, Batman."
** His first meeting with Batman is similarly great, as it's basically DC's two most badass BadassNormals boasting at each other for three pages:
-->'''Prometheus''': I've been waiting for you.
-->'''Batman''': I don't care what you've been doing. It's over.
--> '''Prometheus''': See, the information on this disk can be downloaded directly into my central nervous system. I have thirty of the world’s greatest martial arts masters right here. And in just a few seconds, all their skills, all their physical prowess, will be mine. I can also reset my helmet lights to produce a disorienting strobe effect. I should tell you: the odds don’t look good.
-->'''Batman''': For you.
-->'''Prometheus''': You think so? You think you’re unbeatable? Maybe I should tell you something else: one of those thirty on my disk, Batman…is you… So don't patronize me! *proceeds to kick the living shit out of Batman*
** Throughout his first appearance, as he continues to pick off the Justice League one by one, he keeps count with an old nursery rhyme. When Green Lantern and Flash find him standing over a beaten, bloodied Batman, he introduces himself by saying, "Five little Indians. Who wants to be number six?"
** His debut issue, in which he murders and impersonates a wannabe hero who'd won a contest to visit the JLA, he uses the dead man's heroic catchphrase as an ironic boast. "Here comes justice."
** "You can look and look, but you'll never find me. I'll erase you from the pages of history."
** "I took the name because I wanted to take fire from the gods themselves. Steal their knowledge and techniques and use them against them."
** He gets yet another one when he meets Superman for the first time: "Brains and brawn. I'm impressed. You know, it's weird hearing you say the name. It's like I actually made it. Superman said "Prometheus" and he didn't sound scared. You should be. I'm here to take my rightful place in this gallery as the greatest super-criminal who ever lived. The one who killed the Justice League."
--> '''Prometheus''': *something to the effect of "kill yourself and I'll save the innocents*
-->'''Superman''': Save these people first. Then I'll do what you want. You owe me that much.
-->'''Prometheus''': I don't owe you anything, you pompous monstrosity. You know who I am? I'm the ghost haunting your dream house. See, "justice" killed my parents. I was… pretty traumatized. I'm sure you understand.
* ComicBook/TheMightyThor hands these out like candy on Halloween. See his page for details.
* Thanos is also good at these, especially when written by Jim Starlin.
--> You address omnipotence. Tread carefully.
* ''ComicBook/LeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'':
** "I'm Wilhelmina Murray. I've seen off Count Dracula, Professor James Moriarty and the Martian Invasion of 1898."
** ''Century: 2009'' features an incredible one from [[spoiler:God (Mary Poppins) to the Antichrist.]]
--> I rocked the fretful baby gods to sleep before time started... and I am companion to the women who paste up the stars. The quarters of the world are bound unto my compass. I have taken tea with earthquakes. I know what the bee knows... and you really are a dreadful little boy.
** Also, "There's a book about me in the Bible!" "Just the one? I'm on every page."
* ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'': "Not enough gun."
* "We're the [[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]]. [[Creator/WarrenEllis We've beaten up real gods and made them cry."]]
* Mr. Mxyzptlk -- "I'm the goddamn TRICKSTER GOD!"
* ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'' is full of these, but [[spoiler:ComicBook/{{Darkseid}}]] gives a definitive BadassBoast in #5 [[spoiler:after taking over the minds of the world's population and defeating the heroes,]] starting with a completely black panel filled with the words "I. Am. The. New. God." Also, obviously, AGodAmI.
* Apocalypse of ''ComicBook/XMen'', especially in the early '90s cartoon, is [[LargeHam given to such speeches]]:
** "I am Apocalypse! Look upon the future and tremble!"
** "I am the rocks of the eternal shore! Crash against me and be broken!"
** "Only I, the eternal, can never be defeated! I cannot be touched! I cannot be harmed! Nothing can stop the Apocalypse!"
** "I bring the purity of oblivion to your world!"
** "I am as far beyond mutants as they are beyond you. I am eternal!"
* ''ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock'':
** "Nemesis?" "The Warlock! The one who waits on the edge of your dreams ... The Shape of Things to Come ... The Lord of the Flies ... The Death Bringer ... I am all these and many more ... "
** "CREDO!"
** Torquemada couldn't be worse:
--->"I am the [[GodEmperor Grand Master]]! I am the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Oy Boy]]! I am the [[ArsonMurderAndJayWalking landlord]], head of the [[SecretPolice Reapers]], [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness chief of the Tube Police]], [[TheyCallHimSword Scourge]] of [[FantasticRacism Alien]], [[HopeBringer first Termite to bite back]], the one grannies fear, [[ObviouslyEvil the one you cross the road to avoid]]. [[OrderVersusChaos I am order personified]]. I am the [[{{Ubermensch}} ultimate human]]. [[AGodAmI I am a God]]!"
* ''ComicBook/TheSandman'':
** "I am the [[GenderBender mother]] of Odin's stallion, Sleipnir. I am the father of Fenrir [[SadlyMythtaken Sun-Eater]], and of Hel Half-Rotted and of Jormungund the World-Serpent. I am Loki Scar-Lip, Loki Skywalker, Loki Giant's Child, Loki Lie-Smith. I am Loki, who is fire and wit and hate. I am Loki. And I will be under an obligation to no one." -- Loki (duh)
** And, from the same world: "I am of the People, man. My teeth are sharp enough to cut bone. I can run on four legs as well as two. I am kin to dwarrow and nightgaunt. I owe allegiance to none and I fear no man born. I want the woman." -- Vassily of the People
** Also from the same world, the Furies/Kindly Ones/Erinyes/Eumenides/whatever have a lot of these. Probably the best example is: "''We have no nightmares. We are the hounds of Hades. Gods fear us. Demons fear us. We have hounded kings and angels. We have taken vengeance on worlds and on universes. We are the Kindly Ones. We are the Eumenides.''"
* Creator/NeilGaiman is good at these. During the first ''ComicBook/TheBooksOfMagic'', ComicBook/{{Zatanna}} takes [[TheChosenOne Timothy Hunter]] to a party attended by a wide variety of powerful evil magicians. We are led to believe that everyone at the party is either AffablyEvil or a PunchClockVillain on their off time, or both, until the party's host announces Tim's presence and announces that a hefty price has been put on his head ("Which need not be attached to his body"). Things are pretty tense until all of a sudden, [[ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}} John Constantine]] appears in a doorway, and everyone stops to watch him calmly light his cigarette.
---> '''John Constantine:''' "No one touches the boy. That's right, the boy's mine. And in thirty seconds, me, and him, and the witch are going to walk out of here. You know who I am. Or you ought to. You know my reputation. Now, does anyone ''really'' want to start something?" (''Nothing happens'') "Right. Come on, you lot. We're moving."
* From the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, a variant: the badass ThankYourPrey:
-->"Of all the creatures in the vastness of the universe, there is none like me. I was present at the birth of the universe, and I shall be there at its end. Though I ravage worlds to live, I bear no malice to any living thing. I simply do what I must to survive. And why must Galactus survive? For, no matter how many worlds I devour... how many civilizations I destroy... it is my destiny to one day give back to the universe -- infinitely more than I have ever taken from it. So speaks Galactus."
* The robotic Manhunters' BadassCreed doubles as a BadassBoast:
--> [[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: No Man Escapes The Manhunters. ]]

** To which John Stewart replied:
---> No Manhunter escapes the Man.
** They had another one before they all made a FaceHeelTurn and TurnedAgainstTheirMasters:
---> [[/folder]]

[[folder: No Evil Escapes The Manhunters. ]]

* [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Sinestro}} Sinestro]] gets one of his own, natch:
---> '''Sinestro''': ''Nothing'' frightens me. I ''am'' fear.
* ''Comicbook/TheCrow'', explaining himself to a cop: "I am pilot error. I am fetal distress. I am the random chromosome. I am complete and total madness. I am fear."
* ''ComicBook/TheAuthority'': "I've already played this fight in my head a million times, from every angle. I know every move you'll make and how to counter it. I know how to kill you. You've already lost, you just don`t know it yet." Eventually, he starts handing it to people on a card.
-->'''Midnighter''' (to a superpowered {{Mook}} holding a child hostage): "Let me make this situation clear for you. I know what special abilities you have. I can see the enhancements. I can detect the increased electrical activity in your brain. I know what moves you're preparing to make. [[AwesomenessByAnalysis I've fought our fight already, in my head, in a million different ways.]] I can hit you without you even seeing me. I'm what soldiers dream of growing into. I'm what children see when they first imagine what death is like. I'm the Midnighter. Your Move.
** To which Captain Atom had the perfect BadassBoast in response: "[[AlwaysSomeoneBetter Why don't you try that shit with me..."]] (Hint: it doesn't work out too well for Midnighter. Or Apollo, for that matter.)
** The BigBad of the "Shiftships" arc has one hell of a boast, which he delivers while [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomping]] Midnighter:
-->'''Regis''': I can see inside your head, white boy. Did you think your little fight enhancements would let you kill ''me''? You've never fought anything like me, boy. I am ''Regis''. I have been raping and killing better humans than you for half a millennium. ''That's'' it. ''Fight'' me. Try to ''hurt'' me. I've lost count of how many men's fingers and women's nails have shattered on my skin. Your mothers and sisters will bear my children. You cannot stop me. Burn Albion, burn Europe-- it won't matter. I am Regis, warrior king of this entire filthy planet-- and I will wipe myself with your skin when I'm done violating ''yours''.
* Franchise/SpiderMan in ''[[ComicBook/AvengersTheInitiative Avengers: The Initiative]]''. "Not gonna happen. Know why? Because I'm Spider-Man. And you're just a dollar-store version of the Lizard. See, I beat down guys like Doc Ock, Sandman, and Venom all the time. And you're just not in their league. Oh, I'm going to win."
** From ''Comicbook/CivilWar'', a quick one:
--->'''Mr. Fantastic:''' (watching Spidey work his way through pro-reg forces) Amazing.\\
'''Spider-Man:''' (giving Reed a flying kick) [[ShoutOut Spectacular]].
*** Usually, however, Spider-man inverts it, as his badass boast typically starts the instant he shuts up.
** In ''Amazing Spider-Man #369'', ol' Webhead says this to his latest foe:
--->"I'm sorry, you think defeating me is that simple? Have you seen my resumé? I've fought mutants, gods, aliens, technomalogical wackjobs, street hoods... Hell, I fought my own costume. You think it's that simple? Bring it on."
* Morningbright in ''ComicBook/TopTen: ComicBook/{{Smax}}'': "You see, it's like this. In the beginning, God created me... Then he made the universe from what was left."
* Wildcat, of the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica:
-->''"That's why I'm the best. Because I know how to fight like it's life or death... I once swam a mile with three bullets in my lung. I KO'd the Ultra-Humanite with one punch. I am Ted friggin' Wildcat Grant. This is my ring. These are my people. And tonight, for one last time... I am their champion."''
* ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'':
** Rorschach: "None of you understand. I'm not locked up in here with you. You're locked in here with me."
** Dr. Manhattan: "I am disappointed, [[spoiler: Veidt]]. Very disappointed. [[NighInvulnerability Restructuring myself after the subtraction of my intrinsic field]] was the first trick I learned. It didn't kill Osterman[[{{Beat}} ...]] Did you think it would kill me? [[PhysicalGod I've walked across the sun. I've seen events so tiny and so fast they hardly can be said to have occurred at all]], but you... you are a man... and [[spoiler: this world's smartest man means no more to me than does its smartest termite.]]"
** A pillar in his lair bears this line from an old poem [[spoiler: I am Ozymadias, king of kings. See my work ye mighty and despair.]]
*** [[spoiler:The irony, of course, is that it's taken from a Creator/PercyByssheShelley poem showing how great works crumble over time.]] In the original context it becomes:
---> [[spoiler:And on the pedestal these words appear: \\
My name is Ozymandias, king of kings. \\
[[LookOnMyWorksYeMightyAndDespair Look upon my works, ye mighty, and despair.]] \\
Nothing beside remains, round that colossal wreck\\
The Lone and level sands stretch far away boundless and bare\\]]
* Subversion in ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'': "S for Stupendous! T for Tiger, ferocity of! U for underwear, red! P for Power, incredible! E for Excellent physique! N for, um, something, well I'll get back to that. D for Determination! U for... wait, how do you spell this? Is it 'I'?"
* Projectra's CrowningMomentOfAwesome in ''Comicbook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}'' v.3:
-->"Look at my ''eyes'', churl. No power... yours or anyone's... can stop me. My ancestors were wizards and kings... ''conquerors''. You are a common killer -- a mad dog accidentally born in human form. You took my world, made my people slaves, and slew the man I had given my heart to. I need no power to destroy you -- save the strength born in my blood." [[NeckSnap KRRAK!]]
* Peter Madsen's ''ComicBook/{{Valhalla}}'':
** Tyr and Thor are having a contest that suddenly turns deadly by Thor's latest attempt to catch the Midgard Serpent. Tyr forgets the contest and starts acting like the God of War (Leaders) he is, snapping orders to help Thor. Thor's sidekick Tjatse doubts him... noting that they just learnt Tyr is of the Giants.
-->"I was ''born'' a Giant! I ''chose'' to be an Aesir!
** Likewise, in another story Loki makes the mistake of actually pissing off Heimdall seriously. He tries to hide by shapeshifting into a mole, but Heimdall is the God of ''Watchers''...
---> ''(stabs his sword down into the soil, one millimetre before the nose of mole-Loki)'' "I can ''hear'' you, Loki!"
** Loki is ''very'' fond of {{Badass Boast}}s in that comic. All the stories that feature him (which are the majority of the stories) has him praising himself at every chance he gets and more often than not ending up getting called on it or having circumstances prove him wrong.
* ''ComicBook/XMen'':
** "Hear me, ComicBook/XMen! No longer am I the woman you knew! I am fire! And life incarnate! Now and forever -- I am Phoenix!!"
** "Behold your creation, Charles Xavier! I am what was, what is, what will be! I am the Black Angel, Chaos Bringer! I AM POWER!"
* ''ComicBook/XWingSeries'': Wedge has a bit of introspection at the start of [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/1498235.html one comic]]; it's not proper boasting because the whole issue is sad in tone, but without context it certainly looks like this trope. "I survived the Battle of Yavin. I survived the Battle of Hoth. Hell... Just a couple of weeks ago I blew up the Death Star during the Battle of Endor. The reason I'm still breathing when a lot of other good Rebel pilots aren't? Maybe it's because I'm [[AcePilot better]]. Or maybe I'm [[PlotArmor just]] [[BornLucky lucky]]."
* The various [[Franchise/GreenLantern Lantern oaths]], which also obviously double as {{Badass Creed}}s.
* ''ComicBook/{{Transmetropolitan}}''[='=]s Spider Jerusalem immediately after being beaten half to death by three armed police officers:
-->"Ha '''haaaa''' hahahaha hah! I'm here to stay! Shoot me and I'll spit your goddamn bullets back in your face! I'm Spider Jerusalem, and fuck all of you! ''Ha!''"
* ComicBook/ThePunisher's [[Comicbook/ThePunisher2099 2099 incarnation]] gets a good one when facing down against the new Aesir:
-->(immediately after [[KillItWithFire crispifying two of the Aesir with a Plasma Cannon]]) "When you're a god, you have no one to pray to."
** He gives out another one when he dives after a criminal who has a jetpack:
-->"I don't need a jetpack... All I need is ''hate''!"
* Comicbook/{{Aquaman}}:
-->"Lay down your arms! I'm serious and I have the firepower to prove it! Sworn protectorate of over fifteen thousand submarine states. My territory surrounds every continent on the planet. I rule most of this planet's surface and almost all of its depths. So don't even think about picking a fight with the King of Atlantis."
* ''Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk'': Bruce Banner once forced [[BadAss Wolverine]] and [[AxeCrazy Daken]] to back down when he explained to them what it means to be one of the smartest people in the world ''and'' be dangerously unstable.
--> Maybe the real reason I became the Hulk... was to protect the world from Banner.
* ''Comicbook/IKillGiants'':
-->I will unleash a terrible fury and do things to you that will make God cry.
* ''Comicbook/{{Fables}}'': "You dumb bastards! I'm Snow White! I run Fabletown and I'm ''never'' outgunned!"
** And, later: "[[spoiler:Brandish]] thinks ''his'' heart is cold and tough? Mine's been made of stone since I was a child. Monsters of the woods couldn't kill me. The armies of kings, sorcerers and empires couldn't. I'm Snow ''Goddamn'' White. I look after myself. I look after my own. And I never lose."
** Frau Totenkinder gets one toward the end of the ''March of The Wooden Soldiers'': "I was ''always'' stronger than you thought. Killed a ''dozen'' times, but it never took. Even burned to ashes in my own ''oven'', I came back, after a good while. How's ''that'' for a frail old biddy, eh? Now you hush and let me finish my knitting. Time to stop struggling and let the deep darkness take you. Your stories are all '''done''', Baba Yaga."
* "My name is ________. I'm Franchise/TheFlash. The fastest man alive."
* [[ComicBook/{{Daredevil}} Bullseye]]'s is short, but right [[IncrediblyLamePun on target]]: "I never miss."
* "We are the ''Comicbook/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|Mirage}}''. We strike hard, and fade away...into the night."
* {{Quicksilver}} gives a lengthy one when fighting Mr. X, but it ends with him explaining the situation. The pauses indicate Mr. X being struck with an iron bar.
--> You can read minds enough to be able to predict any attack your opponent will make. So you will be able to -- anticipate every move I make -- and do absolutely -- '''nothing''' about it -- because -I-am-the-'''fastest'''-man-on-earth.
* Ultimate Quicksilver was really great in the first two volumes of ''TheUltimates''; after the US is invaded by a hostile army of foreign superhumans, he saves Hawkeye from the enemy speedster by dragging her along with him until she ''vibrates apart'', at the same time delivering what must be the fastest badass boast in history: "You want fast, Hurricane? I'll give you fast. What kind of limits did they take you to back home? Mach five? Mach ''ten''? I was hitting those numbers when I still had pimples. (...) Feel your bones rattling like you're on a freight train? That's molecules dancing. That's what happens when you ''threaten'' my ''friends''!" The kicker is that he apparently does saves like that all the time, but nobody notices it and few people believe it when he tells them because he does it so ''fast''.
* From ''IgnitionCity'':
-->I'm 26 years old. I've been to the Moon, and Mars, and Venus. I've slept with asteroid gypsies, broken sloats, and fought with the eighth insurgency on Forest. I shot a man on Khargu because he needed to die more than any I've ever met. I repaired three rocket tubes with a wrench and a knife while hanging upside down over Titan during the syzygy. I'm 26 years old and my life is over now. So direct me please to the man who'll sell me a gun, and the place where my dad was shot dead in his sleep, for I have business to attend to before I lay down in my grave.
* ''ComicBook/SupermanRedSon'': "Let our enemies beware: there is only one superpower now."
* ''ComicBook/DesolationJones'' has a particularly memorable one:
-->Okay. Here's the thing. [[FeelNoPain Pain doesn't bother me.]] Let me show you.\\
''[Rolls up his sleeve, revealing a biohazard tattoo]''\\
[[PlayingWithSyringes This means I was tortured for a year.]] [[MindRape This means I experienced death for a full year, twenty-four hours a day.]] You know what you learn from that? Death is easy. Death is ordinary. It is not special. Your life is not special. And, as part of the ex-intelligence community that the authorities keep trapped in UsefulNotes/LosAngeles, I am legally invisible.\\
[[SociopathicHero I am incapable of caring whether anyone in this room lives or dies.]]\\
I'm not trying to scare you, I'm not trying to be the big man. I'm just saying: don't touch me again.
* In the GreenLantern prologue to ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'', with the introduction of Saint Walker, he reveals that his ring increases the power of Hal Jordan's ring.
--> '''Saint Walker''': It is at full capacity, and will remain so, as long as I hope for your well-being. And I will '''always''' hope. Until my last dying breath.
* From ''Comicbook/{{Lucifer}}'':
-->'''Michael''': Was it not Buddha who heard a sermon in the thunder?
-->'''Lucifer''': Actually, it is in the Upanishads, but I applaud your ecumenical impulse.
-->'''Michael''': And the words the thunder said were Datta, Dayadvam, Damyata. Give, sympathize and control. I've always thought of that as one commandment rather than three.
-->'''Lucifer''': Why do I feel that this particular sermon is being preached at me? I can do control. Nobody is good at everything.
-->[Later]
-->'''Lucifer''': A sermon in the thunder, Michael? Thunder only has one thing to say: it tells us how close the storm is.
* A Hellfire Club mook has just shot Kitty Pryde, who just freed Logan and Colossus from power draining cages, with a stun rifle.
--> '''Wolverine''': Sucker, you just made the biggest mistake of your life. ''(SNIKT)'' And the last.
* ''ComicBook/MarvelAdventures'', unlike the 616 universe, does not need wanton assholery to be badass:
--> "My name is Reed Richards. And ''these'' are [[ItMakesSenseInContext my toasters]]." ''(curbstomp)''
* In ''ComicBook/MarvelStarWars'', Luke once deliberately activates an Imperial droid's capture programming with this.
--> "Yoda said it, Artoo: There '''is''' no try! Only '''do'''.. or do '''not'''! And '''I''' mean to do! [[DynamicEntry This can't stop me!]] '''Nothing's''' going to stop me! I'm '''Luke Skywalker'''... destroyer of the '''Death Star'''! I'm the one who dueled '''Darth Vader''' and lived to tell about it!"
* The ComicBook/IncredibleHulk:
** While "I'm the strongest one there is" is the Hulk's catch phrase boast, recently he's simplified it. When told he can't do something, or asked how he thinks he can do something thought impossible, he responds "Sure I can/Easy, I'm [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk The Hulk]]."
** Also, as [[FutureMeScaresMe the Maestro]], he had this excellent villainous version;
-->'''Maestro:''' "No, by beating them to death, and it all went so quickly that I'm sorry I didn't prolong it." "You're fighting the inevitable, Hulk. I'm simply the final product of natural selection. The strong survive. I'm the strongest. I survived. When you go against me, you go against the laws of nature."
* ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'', ''Cabalistics Inc.''
-->In Akkad and Elam they called me '''Baarish-Shammon''', and when they threw their children alive into the fire-pits it was my name that was on their lips.
-->In Egypt - in the reign of the '''heretic pharaoh Nephren-Ka''' - they called me''' 'She Who Stalks By Night', '''and they dressed my statues in the flayed skins of slaves to keep me from their doors.
-->In '''Kadath in the Cold Waste''' they knew and feared me. My true name is written on the walls of the tombs of '''Hidden Irem''', where no human eye has yet to read it.
-->In Carchemish and Ashur, in Kiran and forgotten Sarnath, in Luxor and Ib. On the shores of Hali. In the darkest abyss-cities of Shaol.
-->In all these places, I was '''fear'''. I was '''despair'''. I was all this, and still so much more.
-->And you're still '''dumb enough''' to think you can beat me?
* The Wreckers from the various {{Transformers}} comics. There's a particularly good one in "Stormbringer".
--> Lost cause? Of course it's a lost cause! That why we're ''here.''
* TheJuggernaut [[spoiler: or rather Colossus, after becoming the new Juggernaut]] gets one as his internal monologue, while fighting Null, Breaker of Stone [[spoiler: who is the previous Juggernaut, possessed by an Asgardian demon]]
-->His lightning could incinerate armies. My bones crumble beneath his fists. He is stronger than me. He is faster than me. He is more powerful than me in all ways but one. He cannot stop me. How could he? I can't even stop myself.
* Comicbook/DoctorStrange does these relatively rarely, so when he flexes his muscles it really gets your attention.
-->Hear me well, [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk Bruce]]... Your anger means ''nothing'' to me. I am the '''SORCERER SUPREME'''. I could snuff the feeble flame of your mortal life with the ''merest twitch of a finger''.
* And the arguably scariest Dr. Strange villain of all, Zom (''How scary? He was imprisoned once by a coalition of beings including Dormammu and Eternity - which is the equivalent of God and Satan teaming up to take someone out''), after being freed from his dimensional prison: "Let the worlds within and the worlds without ''tremble'' in their orbits!"
* In ''ComicBook/{{Azrael}}'' Annual #2, a Legends of the Dead Earth {{Elseworld}}, Brian claimes Azrael "defeats six monsters before breakfast. Sometimes he has them ''for'' breakfast. With milk and sugar. [[{{Metaphorgotten}} And sliced strawberries, occasionally]]."
* The ''ComicBook/SecretSix'', explaining why a potential client should hire them: "Your enemies are our enemies, and most of our enemies are dead."
* In one ''ComicBook/SilverSurfer'' classic story [[SatanicArchetype Mephisto]] managed to give one, while fighting Galactus himself.
-->'''Mephisto:''' I am Mephisto! There is only [[{{God}} One]] who can defy me! And compared to Him you are like smothering children in the furnace of the dammned!
* Palpatine from ''ComicBook/DarkEmpire'':
-->"I've played along with your Jedi dueling games long enough! Now you will experience my full potency... I live as energy... I am TheDarkSide!"
* From ''ComicBook/StarWarsLegacy'':
-->"I have been through death and conquered it. I have returned with my power multiplied. The dark side of the Force lives and manifests itself through me! I reach into the dark side now and send ripples through it to all who serve it — know that I live!"
-->'''Darth Krayt, Dark Lord of the Sith'''
* ''Marvel Boy'' had a great one:
--> I'll show you people what paradise looks like if I have to level every city on Earth and rebuild it stone by stone.
* ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'': Barbara to Savant, after the latter broke out of Arkham. ''Over the phone''.
--->'''Oracle''': You've escaped, and you think the world's a huge place, and you can hide anywhere, right? I'm here to tell you...that world? I ''own'' it. ''Your'' world is getting smaller by the second. And you can't hide ''anywhere'' from me. Every database, every security cam, every police band has my fingerprints on it. Every moment you're out the noose pulls tighter. And Savant, just in case it's not ''crystal'' clear by now...''nobody'' messes with my ''partner''.\\
'''Savant''': (trying to hide his face from a security camera) She's overestimating herself. She can't...I'm ''certain'' that...[runs away like a scared rabbit, without even bothering to hang up first]
* First thing the main character of ''ComicBook/OrcStain'' says is:
-->''I could crack the thunder of a lightning bolt.''
* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': "The law is the law...and ''I am the law!''"
* After ending the ComicBook/{{Annihilation}} event by killing Annihilus with his bare hands, Comicbook/{{Nova}} had brought the event up on several occasions. At one point he threatened Blastarr by reminding him that he could easily repeat the act on Blastarr if he does not act diplomatically. But the most famous instance was directed at [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]].
-->'''Nova''': I pulled him inside out and saved the universe. What have you done lately, Tony?
* "I'm Franchise/{{Batman}}.". With his reputation, this counts.
--> "Are you dense? Are you retarded or something? Who the hell do you think I am? I'm the Goddamn Batman."
* From the comics in the ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' continuity:
-->'''Soundwave''': Nothing moves on the orb below without '''my''' being aware of it. I see and hear everything, be it out in the open or behind closed doors. My reach is invisible, intangible. My grip...cast-iron.
* Although ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'' prefers the DeathGlare to the BadassBoast, some of his opponents have given impressive boasts. Among the most memorable is Jei's:

-->'''Kara''': Look -- here's the problem. You've done some bad things, but I'm really, really upset right now. So much so that, honestly, I don't trust myself. And if you attack me or I attack you... I will hurt you. I will hurt you worse than you've ever been hurt in your whole life. I can carve you up by looking at you. I can break you, boil you, freeze you. I can do things you can't imagine. Things I can't imagine, until I have to, and then I'll improvise. Part of me is hoping that you will attack. And part of me is praying -- for your sake and my own peace of mind -- that you don't. It's up to you. Oh... And, Rebel... I have eyes that can see through solid matter. I have ears that can hear your slightest word, your heartbeat, your breathing. You do anything that hurts others... I will find you. And you won't like it. Do we have an understanding?

--> '''Dracula:''' My boy...I was '''never''' an ordinary vampire. Or did you forget who I used to be? I've killed more men than God's plagues combined. And that was before I started eating people for fun. The fields of Europe used to steam with the blood of my enemies. Trust me...the vampire's the least of your concerns. It's the old man you need to worry about.
* In ''ComicBook/DCOneMillion'', Vandal Savage's dialogue seems to consist of a string of badass boasts loosely held together by plot. (They get less justified as his plans unravel.)
**
--->'''Savage:''' I remember a world without the ''wheel''. I have seen empires bloom and wither and die. Brief as ''flowers''. And periodically, I have chosen to rule the Earth... This time, I decided to wait until the competition was ''big'' enough and ''arrogant'' enough to make it worth humiliating...
**
--->'''Savage:''' Like all specialists, your dependence on ''one'' weapon makes you ''vulnerable''. I'll demonstrate.
**
--->'''Savage:''' I ''planned'' and ''fought'' and ''won'' battles you have only read about in your ''history books'', boy. You're no tactician.
**
--->'''Arsenal:''' I'm coming back and you're gonna pay!\\
'''Savage:''' I paid for all this a long time ago; it cost me sixty barge loads of silver in the days of Thutmose. Look. The time has come for you to die, little boy soldier.
**
--->'''Savage:''' ''He'' trembled before those monsters of evolution. ''I'' destroy them with a wave of my hand! Look, Hitler, ''look!''

* ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist got one at the start of his new MarvelNow series, ''Iron Fist: the Living Weapon''.
-->''I am the livign weapon. I am the blade that cuts both ways. I am the masochist and the narcissist. Rigid and fluid. Corrupt and pure. I am a white-hot...clenched fist...of rage... and iron.''
* White Tiger of the MightyAvengers, or at least the ancient entity to which she is a host, gave an epic one to EldritchAbomination Shuma-Gorath:
-->"When humanity first looked into the night, ''my'' eyes looked back. When they learned to fear the darkness, it was ''me'' they feared. When they learned to fight for their lives and their loves and their children, ''I'' was their first enemy. Lay your claim to a thousand thousand worlds...this one is ''mine''! '''FOR I AM THE TIGER!'''"
* The God of Thunder delivers an epic one to IronMan following a very one-sided fight during JMichaelStraczynski's time as head writer of {{Thor}}.
