Default Dark Avengers - Blazing Logos

When a dark avenger leaves a blazing logo.
It's become a common and recognizable trope in movies, but I'm wondering how common, looking for any examples?

(1939) - Zorro leaves his mark in- Zorro's Fighting Legion
Lighting up a hill side with a giant "Z' as warning to his enemies he's coming after them, and as a sort of signal for Zorro and the "Legion" to assemble.
(A proto Bat-Signal? Which first appeared in Detective#60 (1942 )

(1994) - Used to great effect in the Crow.

(1998) -The Mask of Zorro. This scene is a straight homage to the (1939) Zorro's Fighting Legion.

A reminder, "you will never be rid of me."

Also used extensively in the opening credits. And again in The Legend of Zorro (2005) promos -

(2003) - The Devil leaves his mark.

(2004) - The Punisher, rather elaborate setup, when and how he took the time?

(2005) - FF. Not really dark avengers, but definitely follows the same trope. (Although well established in the comics first, anyone know when it first appeared?)

(2005) - V for Vendetta, - Opening credits a flaming V logo is used.

In the scene where he introduces himself to Evey, he slashes a "V" into a street poster, homage to Zorro's classic "Z" mark. -
Then in the fireworks create a giant blazing "V"

(2008) - In The Dark Knight they somewhat used the idea for the ad campaign and poster.

(2012) - And finally the last to follow the trend, it physically appears full blown in Dark Knight Rises...

Any others ?
Was it in X-Men did Phoenix ever make a flaming symbol? Ghost Rider? Hellboy?
