* 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.

** This version of ComicBook/SpiderMan got his "enhanced" costume and web-shooters (an upgrade from his initial "homemade" costume) from Tony Stark, who first recognized young Peter Parker's potential as a superhero and took him under his wing. ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' reveals that his enemies Vulture and the Shocker both got their equipment from the Tinkerer, who built it out salvaged Chitauri technology.

** In ''Series/{{Daredevil}}'', Matt Murdock's costume and [[IconicItem billy clubs]] were designed and built by Melvin Potter ("Gladiator"), who also designed Wilson Fisk's armor-weave suits that give him the appearance of being invulnerable. [[note]] Many of Fisk's earliest appearances strongly hinted at him having super-strength and invulnerability powers, due to him being [[{{Acrofatic}} improbably muscular for someone of his girth]].[[/note]] [[Film/TheAvengers2012 The Chitauri Invasion]] also provides a handy justification for Matt and Foggy [[FriendsRentControl being able to start their own law practice in New York right out of college]]: it turns out that an alien invasion can really bring down real estate prices, even in one of the world's most expensive cities.

* Creator/AlanMoore's classic ''ComicBook/SwampThing'' run introduces the concept of "The Green", a mystical energy field which connects all plant life (as opposed to "The Red", which connects animal life). Later, Creator/NeilGaiman's miniseries ''ComicBook/BlackOrchid'' heavily implied that '''all''' characters in the DC Universe with [[GreenThumb plant-based abilities]] draw their power from the Green in some form or another; Alec Holland (Swamp Thing), Jason Woodrue (Floronic Man), Pamela Isley (ComicBook/PoisonIvy) and Philip Sylvain (the scientist who created Black Orchid) were all apparently colleagues in the field of plant science, explaining how they all wound up unlocking the power of the Green. The ''ComicBook/New52'' takes it a step further, revealing that ComicBook/AnimalMan similarly gets his powers from the Red.

* In the WhateleyUniverse, people with the "meta-gene complex" may just manifest as a mutant (typically around age fourteen) for no known reason. However, at least a sixth of everyone on earth has this genetic structure, and yet there are only thousands of mutants. The roughly 600 mutants at Whateley Academy represent by far most of the high-school age mutants on the planet.

* Franchise/TheDCU copied the Marvel concept when they introduced the "metagene" in the 1988 CrisisCrossover ''ComicBook/{{Invasion}}!''. When someone with this gene underwent a moment of extraordinary physical stress, the gene would activate, giving them some ability that would allow them to handle it. Any character who doesn't have powers from some other, explicit source is assumed to be a "metahuman". Interestingly, the reason for the extreme variance and unusual circumstances of activation is explained; the gene was originally adapted to give everyone all available powers freely, but was sabotaged by some AncientAstronauts tens of thousands of years ago because humanity frightened them.

Interestingly, the reason for the extreme variance and unusual circumstances of activation is explained; the gene was originally adapted to give everyone all available powers freely, but was sabotaged by some AncientAstronauts tens of thousands because millions of years ago because back during humanity's infancy, the White Martian race studied humanity frightened them.and performed experiments on them, changing their genetics, specially the nature of what would be the metagene. The group of renegades who did this (the Hyperclan) was imprisoned in the Still Zone as punishment. Had the White Martians not interfered with primitive humans, humanity would've evolved into a more uniformly powered race, much like Kryptonians and Daxamites did.
