** ComicBook/{{Robin}} was introduced to the comic in order to appeal to the young audience who bought it. Even among the various Robins, Tim Drake (Robin III) is often cited as the easiest to relate to and identify with as he ''wasn't'' an orphan, acrobat, or street rat [[spoiler: although he became the first one in ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'']]. Just a regular kid who knew Batman needed a Robin.

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} filled this role during her first adventures in the Silver Age: she was Superman's plucky, young sidekick who helped him out as she explored his world.



* Super-Boy Prime is an interesting example. He's from Earth-Prime, which is portrayed as the "real" Earth, ''our Earth''. He was a Kryptonian and the only super-powered person in a world without them, and everything he did in the Multiverse could be read in the comics. He is what happens when you give a bullied kid superpowers and take his world away from him, make him kill so much, then put him ''back'' in his world, a world where now, everyone ''hates'' him. And to think, he used to be a sweet little kid that read Superman comic books, dreaming that he could be like him....

* [[Comicbook/MsMarvel2014 Kamala Khan]] is in many ways a modern version of Peter Parker. She's obsessed with Comicbook/TheAvengers and superheroes in general, and partakes in a number of common nerd activities like reading {{Shoujo|Demographic}} manga and writing fanfiction.
