* The title character of ''ComicBook/{{Supreme}}'', [[ClarkKenting aka Ethan Crane]], due to his powers, ages very slowly, and, despite being born in 1920, [[OlderThanTheyLook looks to be in his mid-to-late thirties]]. When he met the universe's now elderly {{Expy}} of Lana Lang [[spoiler: inhabited by the spirit of the ComicBook/LexLuthor {{Expy}}]], in the late 90s, she briefly recognises him as her old friend Ethan Crane, but then assumes he must be Ethan Crane's son since Ethan couldn't possibly look the same as he did decades ago. For the rest of the series he goes by the name "Ethan Crane Jr.", [[ThrowItIn posing as his own son]]. It's helped by the fact that Supreme, and therefore "Ethan Crane Sr." disappeared into space in the late 60s, and only returned over twenty years later. Although we later learn he never bothered to make up a name for his mother.

* ChelseaQuinnYarbro's immortal vampire Saint-Germain would leave an area for a time (decades, usually, though he does this more quickly in ''The Palace''), and then return under a new identity as the nephew of his previous identity to claim his "inheritance". He might not use the exact same name, but would re-shuffle his usual ones (justifiable, as noble families often have traditional names that get re-used).
