Loki.

He was adopted.... by his family's murderer.....

Kept as a pet to be disguised and treated as a son..... Only to praise another son who wasn't really his own, yet from another god....

A Goddess...

Loki practically lived a lie all his life...

Became a woman.

@Magethor: Lmao I love the ending to your comment, but he was abandoned by his own biological family. But yes I agree his life is quite tragic, I also think that Deadpool's story is quite sad.

O-Ren Ishii from Kill Bill. The animated part when her parents were killed with her in the same room was brutal.

@Jbhdbc: Batman and Naruto pshhh. Sasuke has a sadder past. His whole family was murdered by his older brother the person he cared for the most and he had to relive it. Most Angel Beats characters had horrible pasts.

@GodOfMischief: Whats so sad about Deadpool I know little about his past, but he seems so cheerful and funny.

@InnerAssassin: There was an issue on his back story in Deadpool and Cable, his mother died of cancer and his father (or step father) can't remember which, was shot. Then going through all the stuff at Weapon X.

Roland Deschain. Catches his mother having an affair with his fathers top adviser, confronts his father about and finds out he knew for at least a few years, then a short time later Roland mistakenly kills his own mother.To cap it off he has to watch the one woman he's ever loved (besides his mother) die, and lastly every single one of his friends, family, and fellow citizens is killed and his city burned to the ground.

@mrdecepticonleader: I agree. Most people takes it for granted because its an old story that happened years ago, but its pretty tragic. He did a good deed, and gets punished for it. He becomes a raging, green behemoth, he can't date the girl he loves, said girl's father wants to kill him, and everyone he meets for years fear him, or even if they befriend him, they always either die, or turn evil.

Taskmaster/Tony Masters: Every time he remembers too much he forgets everything he once had. He's lost his life multiple times because of it and doesn't remember his wife or any of his loved ones and every time he remembers everything again his memory gets written over again and he is forced to forget it all not only that he was a shield agent but because of his memory loss believes he's a villain so forces himself to do bad things because he can't remember anything else. Thus he is continuously alone and can't remember anyone he meets past a certain amount of time.

Jewl/Jessica Jones: Was even more unpopular than Peter Parker at school (da hell is that even possible?) she was then put into a coma due to an accident and when she got her powers she decided to do good with them until a villain called Purple Man a man with the ability to secrete mind control pheromones used them to enslave her and repeatedly sexually assault her for god knows how long while she was under his mind control.

Spawn/Al Simmon's: Made a deal with the devil to come back to life as a hideous hellspawn in order to see his wife again but due to his death didn't remember everything and found out that he was in fact an abusive husband who killed his own child by hitting his wife and making her have a miscarriage. now don't get me wrong its clear that Al before being brought back was a completely awful person however when he came back he had no memory of this and was simply deeply in love with his wife. Imagine finding out you killed your own child on purpose? Thats damn sad.

These take the top not many others come close really.

The Boss/The Joy from Metal Gear Solid 3. Don't read if you haven't played the game.

Naked Snake's mentor who grew up with parents belonging to the Philosophers and as she got older the group began to arrange her death. In World War II she was the leader of the Cobra Unit where she met her lover The Sorrow whom she mated with. The two were in a battle of life and death. She had to kill him to survive. The Boss brought us victory in World War II. She literally gave birth on the battle field to only have her kid taken away. When her suit is unzipped you can see a scar from where she was cut open that resembles a snake.

Despite her bringing victory for us the United States made it seem as she defected to Russia. Our country viewed her as a traitor when she was a true patriot. For ten years prior to this she lived with John (Naked Snake) who was her disciple. His task was to kill her at all costs. Thus, the war between Major Zero and Big Boss was born.

I'll think of a few comic ones in a bit. Doctor Manhattan kinda comes to mind though.

I'd agree with this. I'd put others in the list, but her story always gets me - especially when the first comic I ever read of hers was Innocence Lost (after I saw her in X-Men: Evolution, which was also rather sad)

These aren't so much sad as they are overly melodramatic and exploitative. Jessica Jones' scenario just showcases Bendis' warped chauvinism (and love of Mary Sues)better than anything.  
 
 
The most sad are generally more subtle, at least to me.  
Light Yagami being a good one. Had he not found the Death Note, he'd have become a true beacon of goodness for society, but he had all of that torn away, and doomed his family and friends because of it. Simply because a Shinigami got bored and wanted to screw with humans.

Gonna have to say Evil Ernie his parents ignored him then his parents physically and mentally abused him the his telepathic powers kicked in and he found out that his neighbors knew about the abuse by reading their minds and did nothing to help him thus turning an innocent child into a mass murderer.

Floyd Lawton (Deadshot)

Pretty tragic family history. Abusive father, accidently murdered his own brother, son was killed by a pedophile. Its all in the Suicide Squad: Deadshot mini from the 80's.

@TheAcidSkull: Exactly right. The Death Note was a curse. No one who uses it remains uncorrupted. Absolute power and all that.  
 
Eh, L was such a douche to MATSUDA aka the real hero of Death Note and the other members of the taskforce. He was nice to Light and Misa, but kept testing and screwing with the others.
