** Similar attire was adopted by ComicBook/MrA and ComicBook/TheQuestion in the late 1960s (both characters were created by the legendary Creator/SteveDitko, and bear a few more similarities to each other besides their mode of dress), and later still by Rorschach of ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'', an {{Expy}} of The Question and Mr. A.

* The Post-Crisis ComicBook/{{Superboy}} in {{the DCU}} (Kon-El/Conner Kent) went through a number of uniform variants (mostly including leather jackets, like his original one, pictured above) before settling on a uniform ([[NotWearingTights or lack thereof]]) that appeared to be a black t-shirt with a red Superman-style "S" ChestInsignia, blue jeans and work boots, which became his trademark since he first joined the Comicbook/TeenTitans.

* [[ComicBook/{{Robin}} Jason Todd's Todd's]] original Red Hood getup consisted of combat boots, cargo pants, a bomber jacket and a motorcycle helmet.helmet. After the ''New52'', his costume was changed to incorporate an armored bodysuit and his helmet was upgraded, but he kept the jacket.


Added DiffLines:

** There was one time were Peter Parker didn't have his costume on hand, so he had to cobble together one by putting on the mask and gloves from his black suit over his civilian clothes.

** The new Superboy, Jon Lane Kent, dresses in a similar outfit. He wears a cape over a Superman "S" shield shirt that he got from a secondhand store, and the rest of the outfit is just jeans and a pair of sneakers.

* While Comicbook/AnimalMan popularised the trope, ComicBook/BlackCanary was wearing a jacket in 1947, albeit a satin one.

* 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.

* In the late 2000s run of ''Comicbook/{{X-Factor}}'', Jamie Madrox wears a T-shirt with the circles-joined-by-lines logo of his old Multiple Man costume.

* 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.
