** Reign wears black, just like in the comics. However, she wears a lot more than in the comics, partly to hide her identity (she looks human here). She still wears the same black pants, but her black bra has been replaced by a top that covers everything from the belt up to her neck (i.e. no BareYourMidriff or cleavage). She also features her symbol in the same way Supergirl does. The show's Reign has a black cape and a mask.

* In ''Series/{{Supergirl|2015}}'', J'onn J'onzz's costume is almost a Batmanesque black suit with armour plates instead of the Martian Manhunter's traditional blue shorts and red belt, which would look ridiculous in live action. It does, however, have a bright red X-like pattern on the chest, referencing the crossed red chest-straps of the original costume, and it retains the blue cape.

The trope has older roots, but the TropeCodifier is the Film/XMenFilmSeries, where a very colorful group of comics characters used primarily black leather outfits, while non-X-Men characters usually wore [[CivvieSpandex common street attire]]. The reasoning given by the production is that the X-Men are a team and should have uniforms, and that since few character were NighInvulnerable or had a HealingFactor the outfits should look somewhat protective. Subtle color highlights were used as a MythologyGag to their original outfits, and a joke was made about the oddities of both the movie costumes (while they blended into the night they still stuck out in public) and if they would prefer going into a fight with [[ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} yellow spandex]].

Added DiffLines:

*** Count Vertigo wears a black BadassLongcoat over dark civilian clothes, in contrast to the green-and-black suit worn by his comic counterpart. However, the show does provide a MythologyGag by coloring his [[FantasticDrug Vertigo pills]] green and black.

** ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'': Hawkeye once more doesn't wear his classic purple duds, but does wear a BadassLongcoat that greatly resembles his Ronin costume from the comics, and incorporates some details from his classic suit. It also comes with giving him more purple, despite being largely black. Similarly, both ComicBook/ScarletWitch and ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}} ditch their costumes from the comics, and instead wear CivvieSpandex that evokes their usual costume aesthetics. However, [[spoiler: Scarlet Witch dons a full superhero costume of red leather reminiscent of her Ultimate look at the end of film after joining the Avengers]]. Additionally, members of HYDRA appear at the beginning of the film, and they're once again all either clad in black uniforms or white winter camouflage gear instead of green spandex. Averted with new character Comicbook/TheVision, who is red and green like his comic counterpart, even if the green is a much darker shade.

** ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' is a mixed bag. Captain America once again dons a red, white and blue outfit similar to the one he wore in ''Avengers: Age of Ultron'', but the white on the arms is removed. Falcon's outfit has been redesigned to include more red and silver, while Hawkeye now has a completely new costume that's mostly covered in purple and appears closer to his original 616 comic design. Scarlet Witch also has a red costume now, and Spider-Man, aside from a few thicker black stripes, looks ''exactly'' like his first design in the comics. This trope is surprisingly inverted with Comicbook/BlackPanther, whose costume is given silver detailing that actually makes it look ''more'' colorful than what he usually wears in the comics.
