** This trope is lampshaded in full during ''ComicBook/SpiderVerse'' by Pavitr Prabhakar, the Spider-man of Earth-50101. During the events of the story, he comes to wonder whether he and the other Spider-Men are mere offshoots of Peter Parker after noticing all of the similarities between his own and Peter's backstories as well as the overwhelming number of alternate Peter Parkers as Spider-Totems, triggering a minor HeroicBSOD. Luckily, a quick peptalk from Billy Braddock, the Spider-Man of Earth-833, snaps him out of this, saying that Pavitr is just as much of a hero as Peter, and that the latter could be an expy of ''him''.

* Miss Martian is this to pre-Crisis ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}. ExecutiveMeddling prevented the writers from adding Kara into ''Teen Titans'', so the writers instead created a completely different bubbly teenage alien girl that they could use. Miss Martian is often considered an expy of Starfire as interpreted in the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' cartoon, however that's probably unintentional.

* [[ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog Archie's Sonic series]] has Doctor Finitevus, an obvious Expy of Doctor Zachary from ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic''. Let's see. Is an EvilAlbino? Check. Has the "doctor" title attached to his name? Check. Is an echidna and one of Knuckles' people? Check. Has a fixation with Chaos Energy? Check. Has manipulated Knuckles (either by exploiting his character, or via brainwashing)? Check. Has had a powerful minion who was powered up by Chaos Energy? Check.
** The Sonic Special issue crossing the book over with Creator/ImageComics also got away with two of the most blatant Expys in comic book history, [[Series/TheXFiles Wolf Scolder and Lana Mully]]. [[https://68.media.tumblr.com/aeb737f7e909334b39eacd4912b84daf/tumblr_oljbmkwBRv1w0yi0zo1_1280.jpg it has to be seen to be believed]]. Ken Penders even had the stones to include something resembling a cross between a TakeThat and a dedication to Creator/ChrisCarter.

%%** [[{{Steel}} Commander Steel]] was another Captain America Expy. ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' {{Lampshaded}} this by having the second Steel mimic Cap's iconic shield throw.
