* One issue of ''ComicBook/ThePhantom'' was about a queen who had achieved eternal youth (with the caveat that she never fall in love). She would regularly marry (strict convenience, no love), then have a 'daughter' during the honey moon who would be raised and schooled abroad. A few decades down the line (before she got old enough that her lack of aging would make people suspicious), she'd go on a journey abroad, 'die' mysteriously, and her identical 'daughter' would return to claim the throne.

* Hob Gadling/Sir Robert Gadling/Bobby Gadling in ''ComicBook/TheSandman'' mentions he has done this several times. He actually mentions that this has gotten more difficult since the invention of photography. He has to conceal old family photographs to make sure nobody notices that he looks EXACTLY like his uncle or grandfather did fifty years ago. Although he also talks authoritatively about the past when confronted with TheThemeParkVersion and never seems to notice that he's talking about it firsthand.
** The ''Hobs Leviathan'' chapter implies that this is a fairly common practice among immortals in the Sandman mythos

* In ''TabletopGame/FreedomCity'', Daniel Daedalus, a GadgeteerGenius who is a member of the modern day Freedom League under the name Daedalus, allows people to believe he's the son of the Daedalus who was a member of the [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] Freedom League. It's simpler than explaining he's ''actually Daedalus''.

* As in [[Franchise/TheDCU the comics]], Vandal Savage in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''. The League first encounter him after getting sent back in time to World War II; when he shows Martian Manhunter a video of himself from the future, J'onn can only remark how gracefully he aged -- Savage remarks, "You have no idea." In another episode, they run into him in the present, and it's mentioned that his "grandfather" was a Nazi war criminal, before his immortality is explained.
