Quite often, the new identity will have a lot in common with the old one. Similar powers and tools, usually with a different personality. This character can sometimes be a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute, or Expy, and sometimes is a {{Foil}} for the original. YoungerAndHipper and DarkerAndEdgier seem to coincide with this trope too, probably because the original heroes are SilverAge and GoldenAge creations.

* [[ComicBook/AntMan Hank Pym]] has inverted this, having created a number of identities for himself, Giant-Man, Goliath, Ant-Man, and Yellowjacket because he was never quite happy with them but has allowed other characters to use these identities (including {{Hawkeye}} who already had his own identity.)

* Marvel temporarily retired King T'Challa, the original ComicBook/BlackPanther, and passed the mantle to a more "relatable" character named Kasper Cole. The final arc of [[Creator/ChristopherPriestComics Christopher Priest]]'s ''Black Panther'' run saw T'Challa reclaiming the mantle and Kasper becoming the new WhiteTiger instead.
