The hero thinks he killed an innocent -- examples of this trope in comic books or comic book movies? Couldn't find it on tvtropes.org

It seems age old but I can only think of one example, The Punisher - War Zone movie. But I'm sure I've read it a dozen times where the hero thinks they killed an innocent person only to find out that
(a) the person actually wasn't innocent, or
(b) the person was innocent but not killed by the hero--it was a frame-up, or
(c) the person was killed by the hero only to miraculously show up not dead later, they were only seriously wounded.
Any examples of this from comic book literature? Bonus points if it's a print comic featuring Punisher!
