* One of the main plot elements of the many adaptations of ''Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde''--namely the two female characters, Jekyll's innocent fiancee and Hyde's slutty barmaid girlfriend--is not present in the original novel at all. This plot thread was created for the wildly successful 19th century stage adaptation of the novel, and has since become part of almost all subsequent adaptations.

* It was Creator/MarlonBrando's idea to have Jor-El wearing a recognizable 'S' logo in the 1978 ''Film/{{Superman}}'' film, making it a preexisting Kryptonian emblem rather than merely a personal symbol of Superman. This change filtered into the comics awareness, explicitly finalized in the 2003 title ''ComicBook/SupermanBirthright''.

* Martian Manhunter's secret identity was originally Caucasian in his secret identity of John Jones. After he was played by Phil Morris in ''Series/{{Smallville}}''.

They said "sure, why not?", and while that idea hasn't made its way into the comics, the John Jones identity being a black man ''has'', and also carried over into his incarnations in ''Film/JusticeLeagueDoom'', ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' and ''Series/Supergirl2015'', and most modern audiences are ''only'' familiar with John Jones being Black.
