* ''Franchise/TheFlash'':
** In one of the earliest examples, Barry Allen was a big fan of the Flash from UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks. One bolt of lightning later, you have an Ascended Fanboy, and UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks is born.
** As was Wally West, who dreamed of being like the Flash as a kid (helped along by a visitation from a future version of himself). Then, in an identical repetition of the accident which made Barry Allen the Flash whilst visiting his lab. And thus Kid Flash was born.
** The first Professor Zoom is retconned as one of these GoneHorriblyWrong. Eobard Thawne was a fan of Barry Allen from the future who found ways to replicate his powers, costume, and appearance all with the intention of coming back to the past to run alongside Barry. It only goes wrong when he arrives after Barry's death when Wally has already taken over the role. Addled from time travel and the discovery that he will one day become Professor Zoom, he briefly deludes himself into thinking he is Barry and fools everyone else in the process.
