Punctuated For Emphasis: Comic Books
  • Sadly averted in the original 300 graphic novel, and former Trope Namer. No emphasis was placed on this sentence when Leonidas kicks the messenger into the well. Just, "This is Sparta."
    • In fact, there seemed to be a lack of "passion" by all the characters in general. It was almost as if they were going through a routine they had grown weary of.
  • In Alan Moore's Supreme, the unseen villain The End speaks everything like this, each word being afforded its own speech bubble. For example, when addressing some lesser rogues gallery members: "YOU." "ARE." "SPECKS." "GO." "AWAY." They promptly fled the room.
  • Justified in The Long Halloween, as Catwoman is currently trying to kick the ever-living crap out of Batman for foiling her first attempted robbery of the Maroni family:
    Catwoman: I!—don't!—have!—time!—for! THIS!
  • The climax of The Avengers Arc "Standoff" gives us this gem from Captain America:
    Captain America: Stand. Your. Ground.
  • In #124 of The Avengers, Black Panther does one to an incarcerated supervillain when he needs instructions on how to use his weapon:
    Black Panther: Van Lunt, I swear to you that lives of everyone on this planet are at stake! We — Need — This — Weapon!
    Van Lunt: Well—, when you put it like that—! I guess... I won't be needing it anyway.
  • The DCU supervillain Dr. Light delivers one in Identity Crisis when he realizes the full extent of the Cerebus Retcon.
    Dr. Light: I-I remember. You. Took. My. Mind!
  • In the new Blue Beetle, Jaime Reyes mother talks down her son and Guy Gardner after they start a Let's You and Him Fight.
    Bianca Reyes: Is that a giant green fist?
    Guy Gardner: Um—
    Bianca Reyes: Is. That. A. Giant. Green. Fist?
  • Deadpool in Cable & Deadpool #42:
    Deadpool: "Must…useShatner…voice…to…reach…STATUE!"
  • Justice League of America. "One punch! ONE! PUNCH!"
  • Final Crisis: "I. AM. THE. NEW. GOD."
  • Near the end of Empowered, volume four. Combined with "World of Cardboard" Speech, and delivered while the title character is laying the smack-down on Fleshmaster:
    Empowered: Unlike you, _____, I do this stupid, stupid job because—
    Empowered: BECAUSE
    Empowered: THIS
    Empowered: IS
    Empowered: WHAT
    Empowered: I
    Empowered: AM!!!
  • Spider-Man in Marvel Adventures Super Heroes #1
    Spider-Man: Dude, seriously. Do! Not! Throw! Cars! At! Me!
    • Later:
    Peter Parker: I'd. Like. To. Have. A. Cup. Of. Coffee. Right. Now.
  • In one issue of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, he gets a distress call from General Immortus. When he gets there, he finds Ancient Greek troops, with red capes, spears, and everything, have captured the General. They attack him.
    Batman: THIS-IS-NOT-SPARTAAA! (chestkick)
  • The Flash villain the Turtle speaks like this. "I... heard... about... his... mother... in... the tabloids... Golden..." "Glider, Golden Glider! Cripes, old man, talk!"
  • Transmetropolitan: "My. Column. F!@#ing. Where. Is."
  • In Mighty Avengers #23, when Iron Man shows up to lead the new Mighty Avengers at Wundagore (which is being besie7ged by Chthon in Quicksilver's body), an upset Hank Pym (now the Wasp) demands a good reason to allow Tony Stark ("the man who fought Captain America in the Civil War. Who sent the Hulk to outer space and pitted him against the world. Who gave the Skrulls all they needed to invade the Earth") take over. His response:
    Iron Man: Three words. You're. Hank. Pym.
  • Invincible Iron Man #10.
    Pepper Potts: (throwing a fit in her office at Stark Enterprises) WHAT — DO — YOU — WANT — ME — TO — DO?! (tosses her chair on a control panel on a wall, which opens and reveals the Rescue armor)
  • Joss Whedon gave us this moment with Colossus in his run of Astonishing X-Men: "I am not made of steel. Rage! I am made! Of! RAGE!"
  • In Judge Dredd's "Judgement Day" arc, Johnny Alpha delivers this line to Sadu while blasting zombies:
    Sadu, how many times do I have to tell you? I'm *blam!* on *blam!* your *blam!* side! *blam*.
  • This is how Swamp Thing's drawn out, slow speech pattern is represented.
    Swamp Thing: I don't... know... where to... go.
