* Superman's cousin ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' has the full Kryptonian pack: super-strength, super-speed, flight, invulnerability, super-senses, heat vision, several breath weapons... and some versions are an ActionBomb. In ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'', Kara gets a [[Franchise/GreenLantern Red Lantern ring]] temporarily. She gains the ability to vomit burning plasma, and her ring gives her an extra set of powers: creation of light constructs, force-fields, space warping...

* ''Webcomic/StrongFemaleProtagonist'': Alison Green, aka Mega Girl, has SuperStrength and NighInvulnerability; her skin can be cut by something SharpenedToASingleAtom, and she is susceptible to blunt-force trauma. Although she doesn't so much fly as leaps tall buildings InASingleBound. She's actually something of a {{Deconstruction}} of the Trope: Alison genuinely wants to help change the world for the better, but she realizes that being able to beat up the bad guys isn't enough on its own to do that.

* Parodied in ''WebAnimation/TheDementedCartoonMovie''. Super Blah, in his climactic confrontation with Evil Blah, swats away hordes of attacking {{Mooks}} by flexing his arms a bit, but shares the really stupid weakness of every other Blah. In an earlier scene he flies into space in an attempt to stop a meteor on collision course with the Earth, only for it to crash into him and then the Earth, which explodes ''again''.

* The Toa Nuva in Franchise/{{Bionicle}}, with the masks of speed, levitation, and strength. Most Makuta qualify as well. Twist: The power is in their masks, not their own strength, and none of the Toa Nuva have all of the Nuva masks, though they can apply the effects as a team. They need to combine their power to become true flying bricks.

* The titular character of ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' is noteworthy InUniverse for his bizarrely simple power set; after three years of TrainingFromHell he lost all of his hair and gained the ability to kill damn near anything in one punch, as well as SuperSpeed, [[InASingleBound enhanced jumping]] that mimics {{Flight}}, and [[NighInvulnerability toughness that let him shrug off a strike that sent him to the Moon]].
