* The Aesop of {{Marvel|Comics}}'s ''Comicbook/CivilWar'' can best be summed up as [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop "If you aren't doing anything wrong, you have nothing to hide."]] Any American who hasn't been living under a rock knows why that sounds familiar.
* TheHood's attack on Tigra in ''Comicbook/NewAvengers'' has some pretty blatant parallels to a rape, complete with a battered Tigra lying sobbing on the floor after it's over. A later arc in ''Comicbook/AvengersAcademy'' drives it home even further when Tigra discusses her assault on live television and states that it's not her shame to bare, but her attacker's.
* ComicBook/AmbushBug: Year None had a small storyline with Irwin marrying Dumb Bunny... and immediately seeking out [[DealWithTheDevil Neron]] [[OneMoreDay to have his marriage annulled]].
* [[http://www.superdickery.com/ Superdickery.com]] has literally hundreds of these.
* LibertyMeadows practically [[DontExplainTheJoke explains]] the joke for you [[http://www.gocomics.com/libertymeadows/2009/01/13 here]].
* In the past, the situation of mutants in the ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' comics was compared to racial minorities. More recent books have shown a tendency to make discussions of being a mutant sound like they're about homosexuality.
* The classic, if [[{{Anvilicious}} anvilicious]] (but [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped considering the time it was written in]]), ECComics story "Judgment Day", in which an examiner comes from Earth to see if a planet inhabited by sentient robots is ready to join TheFederation. It's revealed that the robots are split into two groups identical except for the color of their outside casing, and the educational programming given to each color. One group of robots is given less useful programming, forced to live in inferior housing in a segregated part of the cities, relegated to less desirable jobs, etc., all based on the casing color. The examiner is forced to flunk the civilization, and the guide whines that he is "only one robot" who can't change the system. The examiner consoles the guide by mentioning that Earth used to be like this too until its people got their act together. Then the examiner gets into his spaceship, [[spoiler:takes off his helmet, and is revealed to be black.]] Read it [[http://asylums.insanejournal.com/scans_daily/54803.html here!]]
* In an arc of ''ComicBook/IronMan'', the armor is [[LightningCanDoAnything struck by lightning]]; this, in combination with [[MillenniumBug Y2K]], [[InstantAIJustAddWater made it sentient]]. Tony wants to transfer its mind to something less dangerous, or kill it, but then the armor tells him that it [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001w72b loves him]]. "How would you define the feelings I have for you? Because, if what I learned from your mind is true -- it feels exactly the same as what you feel -- for [[LoveInterest Ms. Fujikawa]]." Tony then decides to [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/00023kfq see if he can be a better Iron Man]] while in the sentient armor, but can't control it... The armor claims to be [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001p754 protecting Tony]], and then it stops letting [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001s2xp his friends over]]. He puts on an older Iron Man suit to try and [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001fyfp escape]], [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001gcpy which]] [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001h4gt enrages]] the [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001kwyq armor]], and it takes him to an island and [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001y8ys tortures him]], then [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/0001z6g0 apologizes]].... Evidently, [[CaptainAmerica Steve Rogers]] taught Tony how to escape from being tied to a tree, and the thought of him [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/00020c9a gives Tony strength]]. Still, Tony has a heart attack during the fight, and the armor, [[http://pics.livejournal.com/elspethdixon/pic/00022t51 horrified]], does a HeroicSacrifice[=/=]RedemptionEqualsDeath. Among many comic!Iron Man fans, the sentient armor is generally called "Tony's abusive boyfriend".
** One of the now-obliterated comments on the original post for this arc went like: "So if Peter × Symbiote = OTP, and Tony × Armor = OTP... [[CrackPairing Peter×Symbiote×Tony×Armor]] is?"
** Someone even made a [[http://nosilencehere.livejournal.com/8733.html tongue-in-cheek fanmix soundtrack]] about their "totally-not-abusive-love" full of songs on the {{Yandere}} music page and quotes like "[[DomesticAbuse The Armor says it loves you, Tony, but the bruises say otherwise.]] Don't they, Tony? ''Don't they?!''"
* Apparently whenever SheHulk has a transformation from her puny human state into the green goddess, it is the equivalent of sexual orgasm to her, as was showcased in not only the recent {{Ultimate|Marvel}} incarnation, but on the classic 90's cartoon as well, which was supposedly for the "younger" crowd.
* After {{Superman}} gets temporarily [[BroughtDownToNormal de-powered]] in the events of ''InfiniteCrisis'', Lois' assurances that she loves him, that it's perfectly understandable, that she's sure he'll be back to normal in no time, and even that she loves him for who he is and not how well he can perform, sound rather like Superman is having a different kind of [[TheLoinsSleepTonight performance issue]].
* ComicBook/BlackPanther's debut issue in ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'' involved the character being falsely accused of murdering his teammates, and subsequently going on the run. While the hero's race is never brought up, it's hard not to read the story as a metaphor for racial profiling.
* In a ''{{ComicStrip/Dilbert}}'' comic, Tina got in trouble for sending a dirty e-mail and Catbert decided to look the other way if she rubbed his belly. It has a hell of a subtext:
-->'''Tina:''' This seems so wrong.\\
'''Catbert:''' Try using both hands.
* A ''[[TheFarSide Far Side]]'' panel had the Big Bad Wolf on a psychiatrist's couch, confessing that "on and off I've been dressing as a grandma ever since."
** This becomes even more blatant, or perhaps just more up-to-date, in ''{{Bizarro}}'''s [[http://www.cartoonistgroup.com/store/add.php?iid=37936 take on it]].
* [[http://i47.tinypic.com/2wdr3hd.jpg This strip]] of ''ComicBook/GastonLagaffe'' just says it all.
* In ''ComicBook/ForeverEvil'' Issue 1, to enhance his powers with kryptonite, Ultraman crushes, burns, and inhales the kryptonite vapors. He then boasts about how he's the strongest before flying off to find some more.
* One ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' comic has Faith first hiding in a Berlin bunker then escaping by train. However BookDumb she appears she recognizes the similarity to the Holocaust to be disturbed by it.
