** The titular character of "Literature/StarmanJones" has this. No one told him not to, so he read his uncle's astrogation books, from which he learned the calculus. He also happened to memorize every logarithm table and every table converting numbers into binary. Another character marvels at not being able to forget anything. "I've been able to forget a lot of things, thank Heaven."

** During ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', {{Superman}} lost his powers. One Year Later, he regained them and picked up a couple of new ones, including true photographic memory and superfast calculative processes (which he immediately uses in battle.) When the photographic memory first hits him, he can suddenly retroactively recall his entire life this way. UsefulNotes/{{The Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} and UsefulNotes/{{the Bronze Age|OfComicBooks}} Superman also had this power, but the ComicBook/PostCrisis Superman did not, until this point.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SpidermanTheAnimatedSeries'', Felicia Hardy's father was a notorious cat burglar with a photographic memory. As a youth he was duped by the ComicBook/RedSkull into spying on the SuperSoldier project that created CaptainAmerica and he memorized the SuperSerum formula. When he was later tried for his crimes, ComicBook/NickFury took him into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody to keep the secret safe. Even decades later he remembers the formula perfectly.
