* "Perceptions" arc (March 1991-July 1991, by Creator/ToddMcFarlane et al.; featuring ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}): [[WouldHurtAChild Krahn]] is a [[KillerCop Chief Inspector]] of the [[UsefulNotes/TheMounties RCMP]], as well as a pedophilic SerialKiller who has abducted, raped, and murdered countless young boys throughout British Columbia. When a benevolent {{Wendigo}} unearths the remains of one of his victims, Krahn blames the beast for the murder and exacerbates hysteria over it by leaking details of the case to the public, sparking panicked riots and misguided acts of vigilantism that result in the death of at least one innocent hunter. To keep the charade going, Krahn kidnaps and kills another boy, letting dogs gnaw on him in order to make it look like the child was mauled by the Wendigo. Later getting together a posse, Krahn sets out to slay the Wendigo, which will calm the public and allow him to resume molesting and killing children under more optimal conditions.

* ComicBook/{{Carnage}}: [[AxCrazy Cletus Kasady]] was a prolific SerialKiller even before he bonded with a bloodthirsty alien symbiote and took the apt name of Carnage. As a child, he killed his grandmother and [[BadPeopleAbuseAnimals pet dog]]; tortured his mother; killed the headmaster of his orphanage with a lead pipe before burning the orphanage down; and pushed a girl he had a crush on in front of a bus because she rejected him. As Carnage, he became one of the worst enemies of both Spider-Man and ComicBook/{{Venom}}, with only those two preventing him from killing thousands more during his rampages through New York. During the ''ComicBook/MaximumCarnage'' event, Carnage created a "family" of fellow super villains, using their powers to drive New York into homicidal insanity and to capture his "father" Venom, in whose captivity Carnage subjected to horrible torture. Not even his own family was safe from Carnage's psychosis, as he brutalized his "wife" Shriek for ignoring his instructions before murdering their "son" Doppelganger when he tried defending her. Reaching his greatest depth of depravity thus far once the HeelFaceBrainwashing of ''ComicBook/{{AXIS}}'' wore off, Carnage [[ComicBook/Carnage2015 raises the Elder God Chthon]], from his ancient slumber, intent on watching as Chthon slaughtered all of mankind and allowed Carnage to bathe in the blood of billions. Upon [[ComicBook/AbsoluteCarnage dedicating himself to the god Knull]], Carnage hunts those who have bonded to Symbiotes to consume their codexes, slaughtering civilians to empower himself. Corrupting and infecting others, Carnage attempts to free Knull from his prison, [[SadisticChoice forcing Eddie Brock to choose]] between saving his son or damning the world, to unleash Knull and have the symbiotes consume all life.

* ''Spider-Man/Black Cat: The Evil That Men Do'', by Creator/KevinSmith et al.: "Mr. Brownstone", Garrison Klum, is a sociopathic drug dealer with a nasty drive to dominate all those he sees. [[{{Matricide}} Having murdered his own mother]] in youth when his ability to teleport liquids manifested, Garrison continuously [[BigBrotherBully molested and raped his own little brother]], Francis, on a regular basis through childhood and into teen years. Once discovering that Francis too had powers, Garrison began combining their abilities in a huge scheme to [[{{Greed}} make themselves rich]] by supplying drugs to the rich and powerful by teleporting the drugs directly into their bloodstream, thus eliminating any physical evidence of drug usage. Continuing to molest Francis at his leisure, Garrison also is known to regularly use his powers to inject paralyzing drugs into people, then rape them, with his main targets being [[DepravedBisexual young women and teenage boys]]. After avoiding an assassination attempt by a rival drug gang, Garrison injects drugs directly into their hearts, killing the entire gang plus the leader's wife with a smile on his face, and uses this same method to kill two customers of his to silence them. When his body count draws the attention of ComicBook/BlackCat, Garrison paralyzes her with drugs, then attempts to rape and murder her, and continue his rise to becoming the most powerful man in New York.
