* TranshumanTreachery: A major topic of ''Newuniversal'', where that universes' version of Phil Voight thinks this applies instantly, and will take any method necessary to avert it, either not noticing or not caring that the people he's hunting are all too human. For added irony, the person he outlining this to is one of those post-humans.

* UpToEleven: Philip Nolan Voight of ''ComicBook/{{DP7}}'' can duplicate any paranormal's powers, but ''amplified''. One of the Star Brands eventually depowers him by overloading him and causing a SuperPowerMeltdown.

* ''Spitfire and the Troubleshooters''[=/=]''Codename: Spitfire'' - Jennifer "Jenny" Swensen, a HollywoodNerd girl inventor and professor at the [[IvyLeagueForEveryone Massachusetts Institute of Technology]], develops a PoweredArmor. She goes on to have adventures with a team consisting of her five prodigy engineering students. Less awesome in execution then the premise makes it sound. The title changed marks when the Troubleshooters dissolved. One was killed in battle, one permanently crippled, and the other three went into retirement. Under both formats the title lasted for 13 issues, from October, 1986 to October, 1987. Spitfire continued appearing in other books as a member of an ensemble cast, but was eventually mutated to a ChromeChampion.

* ''Justice'' - John Tensen is a KnightTemplar who thinks he's from a MagicalLand. In later issues, a RetCon reveals that he's actually a DEA agent who's been under the influence of a delusion induced by one of his enemies. He takes it upon himself to judge his fellow paranormals: "If they are [using their powers properly], he leaves them in peace. If they are not, he leaves them in pieces." With his right hand ("sword hand") able to generate energy blasts of high intensity and heat and his left hand ("shield hand") generating [[DeflectorShields Deflector Shields]], Tensen is typically able to best his opponents. His series lasted 32 issues, from November, 1986 to June, 1989. Through a dimension-traveling adventure, Justice was later added to the world of ComicBook/Marvel2099.

Something similar to ''newuniversal'' was started in the pages of ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' with a Nightmask and Star Brand appearing in the title. They are a part in the 2013 storyline ''ComicBook/{{Infinity}}'', where a new White Event happens on Earth-616.

Earth-616. They eventually got their own title, ''ComicBook/StarbrandAndNightmask''. Although these characters are re-imaginings who are not directly related to the originals, there are plenty of {{Mythology Gag}}s referring to the New U.

* {{Capepunk}}: The New U was an attempt at this genre, since it was intended to be more realistic than the mainstream Franchise/MarvelUniverse.
