** In her own series ''Comicbook/StarsAndSTRIPE'' when Courtney was still going by Star-Spangled Kid instead of Stargirl the Cosmic Belt is explicitly the source of her abilities (she didn't have the staff yet), and Pat Dugan wears the PoweredArmor he made, the S.T.R.I.P.E. Armor.

* ''WebComic/SchlockMercenary'' has fullerene-cloth powersuits that are literally indistinguishable from normal clothes, and are in fact the Toughs' normal outfits. With these, characters can {{fl|ight}}y, [[NighInvulnerability shrug off artillery fire]], and [[SuperStrength punch through walls]]...although most of the Toughs have "soldier boosts", genetic enhancements that push their physical abilities past whats normally possibly for their given species, so some of them [[SuperSoldier can punch through walls anyway]].

** The inconsistent durability suggests that they're just another part of Gantz' game of yanking their chains. "Take these, they'll make you supermen! Until I decide you should stop having superpowers..."

* ComicBook/IronMan's original suit was simply intended to hold a deadly piece of iron shrapnel embedded in his heart lining with powerful magnets, thus allowing him to move without dying. By the end of the first issue, it became a OneManArmy machine. In some incarnations the suit has been shown to be a highly effective combatant even when its wearer is unconscious. He doesn't simply stay home and send the suit out on its own to fight evil for a couple of reasons. First, he's tried it; Tony's [[AIisACrapShoot track record with [=AIs=] is really poor]]. While none of them have become world-threatening menaces like Ultron, they do all tend to go a bit squirrelly after a while.) Second, but quite possibly more important, he likes to fight; he's something of a crusader personality and adrenaline rush junky.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', the babies dress Chuckie up in his own super hero suit to emulate his favorite hero, Captain Blasto. The towel he wears as a cape is told by Tommy that all heroes wears capes and that that's where their powers come from. When trying to get his globe beach ball back from Angelica, he loses the cape, yet still is able to beat Angelica and get his ball back. They, then, treat it as a MagicFeather and that he doesn't need any more, though while they're not looking, Chuckie picks it back up and puts it back on, stating "You never know..."

* The ''WesternAnimation/MightyMouse'' cartoon "Hero For A Day" had a bumpkin mouse finding out his girlfriend has the hots for Mighty Mouse. He buys a Mighty Mouse costume, thinking he can impress his girl by intimidating some cats. It doesn't work, and after the cats knock him out and are about to pounce on him, the real deal shows up, defeats the cats quite handily and lets the little bumpkin take the credit for it.

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series, there's the various models of PoweredArmor, from the early T-45 armor to the Enclave X-01 power armor, all of which provide a boost to Strength.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', the completion of certain side quests for the Railroad will unlock Ballistic Weave, a modification for regular clothing items (which are wearable under armor) that can boost their damage resistances to beyond what even fully upgraded Combat Armor can provide.
