* After the success of ''ComicBook/{{Diabolik}}'', Italian comic books were invaded by series [[VillainProtagonist starring an obviously evil murderous thief]], gifted with great intelligence and whose name included the letter 'K'. While most of them have disappeared, ''Diabolik'' is still going on, and so two of the followers: ''ComicBook/{{Cattivik}}'' (a very funny and [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs nonsensical]] ShallowParody, with a protagonist that is not intelligent but TooDumbToLive) and, from ''Creator/{{Disney}}'', Paperinik (an alter ego of WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck who started out as avenger of himself, later turned to UnscrupulousHero and then to full hero, [[AntiHero if a bit sadistic]]. Best known internationally for ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'').

* The surprise success of Creator/MattFraction's run on ''Comicbook/{{Hawkeye}}'' with David Aja and Annie Wu led to Marvel and DC launching a number of "quirky," more subdued books with more intimate tones and unconventional art styles, such as Creator/WarrenEllis' ''Comicbook/MoonKnight'' run. A lot of the new titles for ''Comicbook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel'' and DC's ''DC You'' relaunch were very obviously inspired by Hawkeye.

** The X-Men, along with the ''New Comicbook/TeenTitans'', set the gold standard for angst and melodrama in superhero comics, as well as telling more personal, character-driven stories that didn't rely on A-list characters who had their own books. The widely-reviled [[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League Detroit]] was DC's attempt at [[ReTool ReTooling]] the JLA into an X-Men clone, by getting rid of most of the A-listers and replacing them with a [[YoungerAndHipper younger]] and more diverse cast.

* Comicbook/{{Robin}} might as well be the {{Trope Namer|s}} for the KidSidekick, and his popularity in UsefulNotes/{{the Golden Age|OfComicBooks}} led to a [[FountainOfExpies string of similar kid partners]].

* Marvel's ''Manga/MarvelMangaverse'' imprint was a rather blatant attempt to cash in on the success American networks had found with shows like ''Anime/SailorMoon'', ''DragonBallZ'', ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'', and ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''.

* Even though the book itself wasn't a huge seller, the fandom that rose up around Creator/KellySueDeconnick's ''[[Comicbook/MsMarvel Captain Marvel]]'' is often credited with the explosion of female-led titles that occurred at Marvel after its release.

* ''ComicBook/ZipiYZape'': It has been argued that the strip started out as a rather unsubtle rip-off of ''ComicStrip/TheKatzenjammerKids'' before eventually growing into its own thing.

* ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne'' was the {{UR Example}} of origin stories in the more recent eras. Now both Marvel and DC produce Year One stories, with varying degrees of success, although none of them could match Batman's.

** UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks also had a secondary trend of vigilantes with ill-defined omnipotent powers, who'd fight street crime without much regard for ethics. See ComicBook/DoctorFate, Comicbook/GreenLantern, Comicbook/TheSpectre, Black Widow (No, not ''that'' Comicbook/BlackWidow), and so on.

* Nobody who's written Franchise/{{Batman}} in the past 20 years has been able to escape the influence of ''Comicbook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns''. This case is particularly hilarious because the single greatest influence on Batman's character wasn't even canon. Even Batman's entry in the All-Star series, which was supposed to throw out all the complicated backstory and let the DC heroes have more Silver-Age-style adventures, was written by The Goddamn FrankMiller himself, and Batman was even more cranky and psychotic than ever.
