* The comic book version of Dr. Light, a Supervillain with [[LightEmUp light control]], warrants his own entry, given that on top of his villainy, the ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'' miniseries also [[RetCon retroactively]] made him a serial rapist. This is the ''male'' Dr. Light (who appears in ''ComicBook/TeenTitans''). DC [[NamesTheSame actually has two]]. The female Dr. Light (who appears in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'') is at worst a case of GoodIsNotNice. At with [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]], this is also literally as the male Doctor Light's real name is [[StevenUlyssesPerhero Arthur Light]]. His ComicBook/{{New 52}} version averts this, however, being a nice family guy who joins the Justice League.

Added DiffLines:

** ''ComicBook/TheUltimates'': Gregory Stark, a blonde teetotaler ManInWhite, the man is Tony's physical opposite. [[spoiler:Taken Up to Eleven with the reveal that he has powers of his own that turn his white suit into a pure blinding light.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ComicBook/{{Magneto}} usually averts the trope, but briefly wore a rather heroic-looking white and blue costume at one point back when he was still a regular villain.

Added DiffLines:

* The light is the main religion in the Franco-Belgian 'The forests of Opal' comic book series. It is also The Empire, controlling most or all of the world. The local priests make sure everything is according to The Light. While some of it members are truely good, most have been corrupted by the power they wield. Evil things are done in the name of The Light, under the excuse that it is the will of the Light and for the greater good and all that. For example their healers heal by transferring the sickness to someone else. They can use animals as the receiver, but prefer humans. And this exchange: 'Have the intruders been caught yet?' 'No my lord, we have to check all the religious pilgrims, it takes time.' 'Dont bother with that, just kill everyone that isnt a disciple of the light.' This is the in universe equivalent of the pope ordering all pilgrims visiting the Vatican executed.

Added DiffLines:

* One [[https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse ''Mickey Mouse'']] story has him come back from vacation only to find his friends act [[OOCisSeriousBusiness wierd]] and the whole town being illuminated by bright lights. Turns out a group of spirits that were BarredFromTheAfterlife are controlling them and they can take over their bodies permanently if they can stay close to a bright light for a long enough period of time.


* ''ComicBook/{{Robin|Series}}'': Tim was nearly killed by the villainous Monsoon, a pale green woman wearing a long white dress whose powers make her slightly glow when in use.

* ''{{ComicBook/Wolverine}}'' & ''{{ComicBook/Sabretooth}}'' are good contrasts. The former is a brunette anti-hero, who tries to be a better person -though a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. The latter is considerable one of the more evil characters in the Marvel Universe, but is the blonde. Contrasting most cases where Blones are portrayed as pure / good and the brunettes are more sinister.

Added DiffLines:

** In the case of DC, the "Black" and "White" designations in the Checkmate organization are not intentionally related to good or evil; the entire organization is (supposed to be) good. Instead, the divisions relate to whether they're more concerned with "intel" (White) or "operations" (Black).


* In the first issue of the ''Mice Templar'' comics, [[DarkIsNotEvil (nocturnal)]] mouse children are told scary stories about the "world of day".

* In contrast to [[DarkIsNotEvil Batman]], SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. He dresses in bright colours, his skin is bleach white and has a sunny disposition. He's also the TropeCodifier for MonsterClown, and the most iconic supervillain there is.

* Just like DC's White Martians, the Therns in ''ComicBook/WarlordOfMars'' are a evil Martian race, but [[HumanAliens human-like]] with fair-skin, blonde hair and blue eyes that fancied themselves [[AGodAmI as divine beings]] behind a PathOfInspiration to lure other races into their domain to serve as slaves and nourishment and looked down on them as inferior beings. More often than not, White Martians antagonized the titular warlord, John Carter.

The white apes also qualified, being gigantic and multi-armed gorilla monsters that are extremely pale and one of the greatest predators on Mars, with their viciousness highlighted in a miniseries where the female protagonist and her friends are trapped inside an ancient ruin filled with these monsters.



* Princess Anjulie in ''ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}'' at first glance, was [[http://static4.comicvine.com/uploads/original/3/38906/924701-1.4_anjulie___reward_a.jpg a beautiful and voluptuous]] WomanInWhite whose introduction had her being threatened by a group of blue-skinned pirates, but in reality, was her world's vicious tyrant who had seduced and dethroned the previous king and the pirates were lead by the rightful princess Kymri. Nightcrawler was swayed by her superficial grace and charm and assumed she was a DistressedDamsel and not a cornered tyrant, ended up saving her from her enemies. He realized how evil she was when [[DisproportionateRetribution she brutally disfigured a servant for spilling a bit of wine in her hand]] and was secretly worshiping an EldritchAbomination that nearly devoured his companions.
