* OlderThanTelevision: [[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]], who debuted *decades* before He-Man or the Japanese heroes.
* The other [[ComicBook/CaptainMarVell Captain Marvel]] was one for awhile when he was bonded to Rick Jones.
* ComicBook/BlueBeetle (The first and third.)
* ComicBook/IronMan, to an extent. Basically, it depends on the version of the suit. Sometimes it'll form itself around a bodysuit that goes beneath it. And sometimes it has a compact form like the suitcase suit, though he does have to step in or pull it around him while it's partially formed.
** Iron Man fully qualifies with his latest suit, the "Bleeding Edge" armor, which is stored within Tony Stark's body and called out mentally at need.
* For a brief period in TheNineties, Comicbook/{{Superman}} had both an Electric Superman and Clark Kent form.

** Somewhat amusing if you compare the most likely unintentional similarities to the Franchise/KamenRider series. Both are {{badass biker}}s, both are usually lone heroes, both are henshin heroes, and both use the [[PhlebotinumRebel power of evil to fight for good]] (well, mostly the Showa Riders, in the latter case).
*** The motorcycle riding Ghost Rider even debuted around the same time as the Kamen Riders!
* [[ComicBook/XMen Colossus]].
* ComicBook/TheMightyThor and Dr. Donald Blake are a variation on this - the difference being that Thor is the original and Blake was a mortal form Odin forced upon his son as a test. Most other wielders of Mjölnir or passable replicas thereof also fit under this trope more-or-less. Including but not limited to Storm when she got repowered by Loki, Beta Ray Bill (albeit he is also a super soldier), Thunderstrike (both of them), and the new Comicbook/{{Thor|2014}} [[spoiler:(Jane Foster)]].
* [[Franchise/TheFlash Jay Garrick]] and [[ComicBook/GreenLantern Alan Scott]] of ComicBook/{{Earth 2}} gained their powers and costumes via mystical sources. As such, their costumes only appear when they use their powers.
