* Comicbook/TheWasp from Comicbook/TheAvengers and Bumblebee from the ''Comicbook/TeenTitans''. In fact, depending on the adaptation or continuity, Bumblebee can shrink and fire energy blasts like the Wasp does.



* Marvel and [=DC=] are stuck in a constant back-and-forth alternate equivalent arms race when it comes to the suddenly-desirable "young female" demographic. Marvel opened up the floodgates with ''ComicBook/MsMarvel2014'', a funny, light-hearted book about a nerdy teenage Muslim-American girl becoming a superhero. [=DC=] responded with the "Batgirl of Burnside" revamp of ''ComicBook/Batgirl'', updating classic Batgirl Barbara Gordon's costume to be more fashionable and practical and swapping the "All Batman-derivative characters must be unhappy grimdark antiheroes at all times" edict with bright colors and a promise of making Batgirl ''fun'' again. Marvel returned fire with the 2014 revamp of ''ComicBook/SpiderWoman'', where Jessica Drew gets a similar costume aesthetic and art style to Batgirl of Burnside, and the accidental lightning-in-a-bottle smash hit ''ComicBook/SpiderGwen'', an AlternateUniverse take on Spider-Man's [[StuffedIntoTheFridge dead girlfriend]] who shares a couple coincidental similarities to Barbara, both being fashionable daughters of cops. [=DC=] responded to Spider-Gwen with ''ComicBook/BlackCanary'', a total revamp spinning out of Batgirl of Burnside where Black Canary has (like Gwen) joined a band with a similarly electric color scheme.

* [[Franchise/SpiderMan Green Goblin]], Carnage and [[ComicBook/{{Daredevil}} Bullseye]] are considered each corresponding hero's answer to SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, not just because of their status as {{Arch Enem|y}}ies but because how they each have traits that only they truly share with the Joker, with the Goblin sharing the laugh, [[LargeHam the ham factor]], the [[ManipulativeBastard inhuman madness and intelligence]], and JokerImmunity (to a point). Bullseye shares the unknown identity, [[ImprobableWeaponUser the unusual weapons]], and rivals even Joker for the title of most insane man in comics. Nowadays though, ComicBook/NormanOsborn has a persona of a manipulative ComicBook/LexLuthor and a persona of a crazed Joker and will flip between the two at the drop of a hat.

* Believe it or not, Marvel actually has a character called scarecrow. Though in a way Marvels scarecrow is more like a CompositeCharacter of [[ComicBook/{{Batman}} The Scarecrow]] from DC and [[Comicbook/TheFlash Ragdoll]], Marvel scarecrow had an abusive mother like DC's version had an abusive aunt, but ran away to join the circus and then became a contortionist like Ragdoll is. His adrenal glands later got the ability to emit a pheromone that caused any living thing within twenty feet to have a panic attack, like DC scarecrows fear toxin. And when he came back from the dead he could directly cause fear in others. This is taken to its logical conclusion when the Amalgam comics combined both scarecrows into one.

** ''Comicbook/HarleyQuinn'' introduced another Deadpool parody named Red Tool, who even has bizarre speech bubbles similar to the ones used by Deadpool. The character was created by Jimmy Palmiotti, another former ''Deadpool'' writer.

* The ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' arc ''ComicBook/NewKrypton'' turned Lois and Lucy Lane's father, General Sam Lane, into one of Hulk antagonist General "Thunderbolt" Ross. Both are aging military men and emotionally distant fathers who have strained relationships with their female children. Both see their sons-in-law as unworthy of their daughters. Both relentlessly pursue and harass a superhero who, unbeknownst to them, is said son-in-law. Both are colossal hypocrites with a good dose of MoralMyopia, both turn their daughters into supervillains (Ross turns Betty into Red She-Hulk, while Lane turns Lucy into Superwoman) and both eventually become the thing they hate (metaphorically in Lane's case, and literally in Ross').
