* While Comicbook/AnimalMan popularised the trope, ComicBook/BlackCanary was wearing a jacket in 1947, albeit a satin one. In her post-Flashpoint solo ongoing, she began wearing just her regular clothing and stage outfits to fight, rather than a costume. It still retains her classic look though, thanks to the fact her 'regular clothing' is exclusively made up of leather jackets, leather short-shorts and/or pants, fishnets, and boots. It works surprisingly well as a means to justify the Stripperific nature of her attire.

** When Creator/GrantMorrison, who as mentioned below did a lot to popularize this trope, took over writing 'New X-Men', most of the team switched from skin-tight 'body armour' to leather jackets and trousers. Except Emma Frost, who after years actually wearing clothes in ''Generation X'', switched to [[{{Stripperific}} her most minimalist outfit yet]].

** Comicbook/{{X 23}} has spent almost as much time out of costume as she has in one. Her [[Comicbook/{{NYX}} first appearance]] saw her spend the entire book in a {{Stripperific}} ensemble of a miniskirt, fishnets, and coat over a corset/tank top (justified as she was a prostitute at the time). She spent some time in a variation of Wolverine's "wild" suit when she moved on to ''Uncanny X-Men'', but most of ''New X-Men'' was spent in what more or less amounted to leather PaintedOnPants and a sports bra, while sporting a similar outfit in ''Comicbook/AvengersAcademy''. She only wore what was, at the time, her official uniform twice during the Liu series, and spent the rest of the series in casual clothes.

* The Franchise/MarvelUniverse version of Scorpion wears a [[PoweredArmor high-tech exoskeleton]]. The Franchise/UltimateMarvel version of the character is a [[RaceLift Latino]] gangster who wears jeans and a T-shirt instead of armor. This allows him to show off his "scary" [[TattooedCrook gang tattoos]].

* ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'': Rachel Summers, the alternate-future daughter of Scott "Cyclops" Summers and Jean Grey, did her thing for a long time in a plain, unmarked Danskins leotard set (and she referred to it by that brand name). She only changed to a "real" costume when she formally took on the "Phoenix" sobriquet.

** Remember that Wonder Man is/was a being of almost pure ionic energy, so the fact that he has a body to wear spandex on is quite remarkable.
