* ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'': The very first few issues of the series had the team working in regular clothing. Justified, as the entire premise of the book was to do away with superhero cliches like costumes and secret identities. The writing team was forced to add the now iconic blue and white tights after numerous protests by fans.

* ''Comicbook/XMen'': 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.

** In a deliberate homage to her fallen boyfriend, ComicBook/WonderGirl's ''One Year Later'' costume consisted of jeans and a red tank top with her logo on it.
*** Of course, most of her earlier outfits during the ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'' era were not much different.
** In the ComicBook/{{New 52}} continuity, Franchise/{{Superman}} himself started his superhero career in an outfit that's similar to Superboy's pre-reboot costume - jeans and a blue t-shirt with the typical ChestInsignia. He still wears the [[ClothesMakeTheLegend iconic cape]], as it's the only part of his outfit that's as NighInvulnerable as he is. It's also the blanket he was found in when his adoptive parents found him as a baby, giving it sentimental value.
*** Post-''Comicbook/{{Convergence}}'', he returns to this costume, but absent the cape.
