* In the Marvel and DC Comics crossover ''{{JLA-Avengers}}'', Franchise/{{Superman}} says to Comicbook/TheMightyThor, "Tell yourself that, Mister... Ease yourself to sleep at night while you let your world go to '''hell'''! Where I come from, though, '''''LIVES MATTER'''''!" When Thor tries to bring Mjolnir on his head, Superman ''catches'' the hammer, causing an astonished Thor to react, "Odin's beard! How ''can'' you...? The mightiest... mightiest in Nine Worlds cannot..." Superman retorts, "S-sorry... sorry to disappoint... but in... my world, it looks like the dials '''''GO UP TO ELEVEN'''''!" and crushes Thor with a roundhouse punch, knocking him out cold. This caused [[FlameWar a LOT of controversy]] among comic book fans, [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment which fortunately we won't duplicate here.]]
* The Casket of Ancient Winters from the ''Thor'' comics is a weird example of this. It created a winter so cold when opened that '''''frost giants''''' started freezing to death.

* In ''Comicbook/TeenTitansGo'', issue #38 has Mad Mod panicking over the titans cranking it up to eleven.
-->'''Mad Mod''': "Oh, no! These amps only go to '''ten'''... but those lads and lassies are rockin' to '''eleven''' at least!"
** And let's not forget issue #51.
