** In ''[[ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain]]'', the two are shown to have something of a rivalry. However, there are clearer distinctions. This issue makes it clear that Plastic Man is the stronger of the two (being able to morph his body into anything while also stretching), but Elongated Man has the advantage of [[SanityHasItsAdvantages still being sane]], unlike Plastic Man, who was stuck in the shape of a silly putty container for years until Batman literally punched sense into him.

* Creator/MarvelComics' SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} (a.k.a. Wade Wilson) was originally a CaptainErsatz of Creator/DCComics' Comicbook/{{Deathstroke}} the Terminator (a.k.a. Slade Wilson); Co-creator Creator/RobLiefeld had previously worked with the original Deathstroke character during his term on the ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' series. Deadpool quickly became a distinct character under the handling of various Marvel writers, to the point that all they really have in common now is being masked mercenary/assassins.

*** Heck, this issue showed that Batman was weary of Plastic Man, even indicating that Plas could've killed them all if he wanted.

* Buck Wild from [[MilestoneComics Milestone's]] ''ComicBook/{{Icon}}'' is a Captain Ersatz of ''several'' different characters. His original costume and powers are clearly based on ComicBook/{{Luke Cage|HeroForHire}}, he later wore a suit to fly and teamed up with a patriotic hero like Comicbook/TheFalcon, got a special belt that gave him the power to shoot electricity like Comicbook/BlackLightning, and then finally became a grim soul avenger like Comicbook/{{Spawn}}.

** Dino Cop and the Spore are the DC versions of the Creator/ImageComics heroes ComicBook/SavageDragon and Comicbook/{{Spawn}} respectively. In fact, Earth-41 is basically DC's version of ImageComics; there's also characters based on Superpatriot, Shadowhawk, and members of Youngblood. There's also some element of CompositeCharacter -- the one that looks like Badrock has a lot of the Martian Manhunter's physical traits as well.

** The TV Comics Magazine strips had rights to use likenesses of the companions, but would occasionally find themselves contending with companions leaving while the strips were being drawn (or when rerunning a Second or Third Doctor strip with the Doctor [[TheyJustDidntCare retouched to resemble the current imcumbent to save money]]). Examples include Sarah Jane and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart being converted into the identical "Joan Brown" and "Colonel Maxwell-Lennon" for one story, and "Miss Young", a miniskirt-wearing companion who has Leela's overly-formal speech patterns and attempts to kill people with knives.
