** In ''Film/AntMan'', the titular suit is recolored mostly black with red highlights on the torso. This is even referenced in the film proper when Scott at first thinks the costume is an old leather motorcycle suit. The helmet has also been redesigned to cover the entire face, and the cartoonish antennae are now reduced to a pair of small prongs protruding straight up from the sides of the helmet. [[spoiler: When Hope's [[TheWasp Wasp]] armor is unveiled at the end, it's shown to have black leggings but a lot of yellow and some red as well.]]

* ComicBook/BuckyBarnes, when he became the new Captain America, donned a modified suit that was largely black, with a shiny blue mask and chest piece, along with covering his ears. It was mentioned that the suit was designed InUniverse by TheWasp, as she had felt like Cap's suit needed an update. For the most part, the suit served to distinguish him from Steve Rogers' Captain America identity, but also helped reflect how Bucky wasn't quite a paragon like Steve was.

*** And of course, [[ComicBook/BuckyBarnes Bucky]] wears military gear instead of the colorful red-and-blue uniform and DominoMask he wore in the GoldenAge comics. Notably, though, its still coloured blue rather than look like traditional military colours, so it still looks, for the most part, like the Bucky costume.

** In ''Series/JessicaJones2015'', Jessica turns down a suit that looks like Jewel's from the comic (Jessica being Jewel for a short time) because of its colours. She ultimately chooses no super suit, but a leather jacket. However, Kilgrave wears bright purple, likely as a stand-in for the fact he doesn't have actual purple skin.
** ''Series/LukeCage2016'' generally uses the NotWearingTights trope for most of the characters, but Diamondback zig-zags this. He's introduced wearing dark combat gear, but in the Season One finale, [[spoiler: he dons a green and yellow suit of PoweredArmor that looks extremely similar to his snake-themed costume from the comics]].

*** ComicBook/GreenArrow himself wears a very dark green suit that could be mistaken for black at times. The arrows he uses have more of a bright jade green coloring for the tips and quivers.
*** The show plays with this concerning Comicbook/{{Deathstroke}}. When he first appears, his trademark blue and orange costume has been changed to black body armor, though his mask remains half-orange. However, it turns out that this ''isn't'' Deathstroke, but rather his former partner, Billy Wintergreen. The ''real'' Deathstroke, Slade Wilson, at first wears gray and black fatigues, but [[FaceHeelTurn when he becomes Deathstroke]] later, he switches to dark blue armor with orange markings and a more metallic mask, similar to his costume from the comics.

*** ComicBook/{{Huntress}} also wears a black [[SpyCatsuit catsuit]] rather than her purple and white costume from the comic books. The purple is kept, and she is shown asking for it specifically when [[spoiler:Ollie]] designs it.

*** Wilson Fisk is fond of wearing black suits rather than white like he does in the comics, however as the series progresses his tendency to avert this trope becomes more prominent, with his final shot of the season showing him in all white.
