** In ''Comicbook/EarthX'', '''everything''' is a direct-or-indirect result of Celestial manipulation. The superhumans, ComicBook/TheInhumans, the Kree, the Skrulls, and even the Asgardians.

** In ''Comicbook/EarthX'', '''everything''' is a direct-or-indirect result of Celestial manipulation. The superhumans, ComicBook/TheInhumans, the Kree, the Skrulls, and even the Asgardians. To make a long story short, everybody on Earth has the potential to have superpowers (usually activated by radioactivity or the Terrigen Mists) because they are the antibodies protecting what's inside the planet: an infant Celestial ready to hatch and destroy its shell.

** ''ComicBook/DarkNightsMetal'' reveals that all metahumans have their powers because of trace amounts of Nth Metal in their bodies, tying everything to ComicBook/{{Hawkman}}'s origin as well as other immortal DC characters like the Immortal Man, Ra's al Ghul, Vandal Savage, and the Court of Owls. This is also the basis for the name for metahumans and the meta-gene...because the guy who coined the phrases forgot the L or something.

* ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' has an unusual example that overlaps with CompositeCharacter. In the comics, Doomsday (from ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'') was a genetically engineered alien LivingWeapon born on Krypton in the distant past, and he confronted ComicBook/{{Superman}} after he was shot into space by the people of the planet Calaton and ultimately crashed on Earth. The "Kryptonian LivingWeapon" premise is more or less intact in the film, but ComicBook/LexLuthor is the one who performs the experiments that create him, and he creates him by mutating and reanimating General Zod's corpse. Thus, Doomsday and Zod are technically the same being, and Luthor is effectively Doomsday's "father".

* The ''Film/DCExtendedUniverse'' uses a Kryptonian scout ship that crashed on Earth thousands of years ago as a point of reference to minimize the typical ContrivedCoincidence in comic book stories. It explains how Krypton knew of Earth in the first place, and when [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Clark]] finds the ship it sends out a beacon that fellow Kryptonian General Zod was able to track back to Earth. In the comics, Doomsday appeared in ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'' initially without an origin, but was later given a complex backstory as a genetically engineered LivingWeapon originating from Krypton in the distant past, bounced around from one planet to another before crashing on Earth and remaining dormant until the modern age.

** In ComicBook/UltimateMarvel, everyone who isn't a mutant, an alien or a god has their powers derived from the SuperSoldier project or one of its offshoots. The mini-series ''Ultimate Origins'' elaborates on the Meta Origin and how it connects everything else; [[spoiler: it seems that the {{mutants}}, too, owe their origin to the project]].

* ''Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse'':
** While much less overarchingly-celestial in origin, ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' tended to interlink the origins of various characters that were previously not related in-comics, making for stronger continuity: For instance, rather than being made by an unaffiliated scientists, Metallo and Bizarro are now the direct creation of Lexcorp (though the latter was true in the comics canon as of John Byrne's ComicBook/PostCrisis ''Man Of Steel'' reboot). Brainiac is portrayed as a Kryptonian computer system with a direct link to the end of that world, rather than being an unrelated alien that [[EarthIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse just happens to stumble across Earth]]. Toyman's origin is now the result of the actions of Intergang, which itself became a pawn to Darkseid's schemes, and so on.
** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' did the same thing with a few characters, such as having ComicBook/TheCreeper gain his powers after being dumped into a vat of chemicals by TheJoker.
** ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' explicitly ties the origins of ComicBook/WonderWoman and the ComicBook/MartianManhunter to the same alien invasion that leads to the formation of the Justice League, since both characters made their debut in that show without prior introduction. Diana chooses to leave Themyscira to aid the people of "Man's World" against the invaders, refusing to remain safe in the Amazons' island refuge while innocent people die; J'onn J'onzz is a veteran of the invaders' earlier war with the peaceful Martian race, who escapes to Earth to warn humanity about their return, and he's the LastOfHisKind because the invaders slaughtered his people. Note that ComicBook/GreenLantern and [[ComicBook/{{Hawkman}} Hawkgirl]] don't get this treatment, instead being examples of RememberTheNewGuy. [[note]] ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' introduces Kyle Rayner and the Green Lantern Corps, but it's never explained how John Stewart became the Green Lantern, or how Superman and Batman met him before the invasion. No DCAU shows ever tell us how the other superheroes first met the Thanagarian warrior Hawkgirl, though the series finale of ''Justice League'' did finally explain that [[spoiler: she first came to Earth as an advance agent for a Thanagarian invasion.]][[/note]]
** Bang Babies from ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'' all got their powers from a single event.

* In [[ComicBook ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog]], the reason for the mutant animals and people is because thousands of years prior, some aliens called the Xorda sent an ambassador to Earth to discuss things with other life forms, but the humans instead killed to ambassador and dissected it for research. The Xorda were angry about this and gene bombed the earth, destroying any and all humans (except for a few who escaped underground). The humans effectievly melted into pools of DNA that mixed with the animals and eventually evolved into the anthropomorphic animals we have today, such as Sonic.
