* In ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'', almost every supernatural being seen in the series is related to Alucard. [[spoiler:All of Millenium's vampires are simply knockoffs created with the remains of Mina Harker, one of Alucard's past victims who still retained a bit of his vampiric power.]] The Captain [[spoiler:a werewolf]] is one of the few exceptions.

* In Defiant Comics' shared universe, the powers could all be somehow traced back to "dreamtime" - humanity's collective ID that existed on another plane of reality. All super-powered humans either learned to tap into dreamtime and wished superpowers for themselves or got powers from dreamtime's native lifeforms.

* In the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, both Banner / [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk the Hulk]] and Emil Blonsky / the Abomination gained their powers through attempts to replicate Film/{{Captain America|The First Avenger}}'s SuperSerum. Banner thought he was researching ways to resist radiation and had no idea what his superiors were really after. Emil Blonsky's version of the serum seemed to work just fine, but when the Hulk still curb-stomped him he got greedy and demanded they inject him with even more dangerous serum.

* In ''Literature/TheGrimnoirChronicles'' books by Larry Correia, all powers come from a vast cosmic entity known as ... well, The Power.

* In ''Literature/TheCosmere'', everything ultimately boils down to the planet Yolen and its god, Adonalsium, which got shattered by sixteen Yolenians. Those eventually took up pieces - Shards - of Adonalsium, becoming divine themselves, and evacuated humanity (or started it anew) to other planets. Shards' magic then mixed with local supernatural "climate", creating Cosmere's various magic systems - not to mention that Shards themselves are initiators of most of Cosmere's plots.
* In ''Literature/{{Sanctioned}}'', there are genetic markers that indicate a person might develop super-powers. Not everyone who has those markers develops powers, but no one can develop powers without them. In Scotland, potential sixteen year olds are taken to a state run school for the government to try and unlock the powers and then teach the youths to control them. So far, there seems to be two theories about the origin of the powers, the Harrington theory (God did it) and the Benoit theory (we don't know the science, yet, but we know it wasn't God).

** ''Spectacular'' also makes use of the ESU genetics lab: For one thing, it's where Spider-Man himself got his powers. Then there was a electrical freak accident that created Electro, which in turn affected Doc Connors' Lizard serum. Miles Warren later used the Lizard serum research in order to give Kraven powers. And to top things off, the symbiote later known as Venom was to be studied in the lab (just like in the Ultimate Universe), too. But since ESU is a subsidiary of Oscorp, it all amounts to the same thing.

** It also establishes Doctor Doom's PoweredArmor as something engineered from [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum Makluan technology]], much like the Mandarin's [[RingOfPower rings]]. Likewise, the Grey Gargoyle is reimagined as one of the Makluan's guardians, rather than a human scientist who gave himself superpowers.

* The MarvelUniverse has SufficientlyAdvancedAlien AncientAstronauts called the "Celestials", who did experiments millions of years ago on proto-humanity, creating the offshoot races known as the Eternals and Deviants, as well as putting in the "X-gene", which causes the wide variety of super-powered mutants in the MU.

*** The Eye of Agamotto from ''Film/{{Doctor Strange|2016}}'' contains the Time Stone which gives it its powers.

*** The weapons used by the soldiers in ''Incredible Hulk'' were ''also'' designed by Stark Industries. In fact, the sonic weapon seems to be the big brother of [[spoiler:the sonic paralyser Stane uses on Tony]] at the start of the final act of ''Iron Man''.
** ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' [[spoiler: establishes that HYDRA was originally an ancient cult worshiping a powerful Inhuman who had been exiled from Earth.]] HYDRA was the proximate cause of much of the preceding: their actions led to the creation of the Strategic Scientific Reserve (later SHIELD) in response, which led to the creation of the Super Soldier Project, HYDRA were the ones who uncovered the Tesseract and began using it, uncovering the Tesseract led to Loki's invasion that created the Avengers, and HYDRA was also responsible for the creation of the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver (which accidentally led to Tony Stark creating Ultron). All of this can therefore be directly connected [[spoiler: to the Kree having attempted to create supersoldiers out of humans (creating the first Inhumans) in the ancient past]].
** 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'' also reveals that his enemies "The Vulture", "The Shocker" and "The Tinkerer" are all part of the same gang, and that they built their enhanced gadgets out of salvaged Chitauri technology after [[Film/TheAvengers2012 the Battle of New York]].

* In ''Film/GreenLantern'', Hector Hammond gets his powers after accidentally becoming infected with Parallax's DNA, unlike in the comics, where his mental abilities came from a crashed meteor.

* 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 ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' the "Kryptonian LivingWeapon" premise is more or less intact, but ComicBook/LexLuthor creates him using the database and technology within the scout ship to reanimate General Zod's corpse, also creating a CompositeCharacter.

** In ''Series/Daredevil2015'', Matt Murdock's costume and [[IconicItem billy clubs]] are designed and built by Melvin Potter ("Gladiator"), who has also built 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 "Incident"] 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.
