** ''[[Film/SuicideSquad2016 Suicide Squad]]'': Neither Batman nor Wonder Woman showed up in Midway City when [[spoiler:Enchantress]] summoned a vortex in the middle of the city (it is entirely [[JustifiedTrope justified]] for Superman however, [[spoiler:as he's still in his coffin]]). It probably depends on how far away they were from the city and how long the vortex lasted before Task Force X solved the problem.

* Subverting this drives a lot of the conflict in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. Gotham is a direct sister city to Metropolis, separated by the bay. Wayne Industries has almost as much investment in Metropolis as Lex Corp and it's shown that the building Zod destroyed with his heat vision in the climax of ''Film/ManOfSteel'' was Wayne Financial. In addition to that, [[{{Revision}} Bruce Wayne was there that day]], knew many of the employees personally and he blames Superman for the entire incident. The film continues to acknowledge that Superman's "area of operation" is far larger than just Metropolis, and is seen doing heroic acts around the world.

* Creator/RickRiordan, author of ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' and ''TheKaneChronicles'', writes stories where the Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Norse gods run around in the modern world, with all their classical bad guys also around and doing horrific things such as [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking turning random people to stone to sell as lawn decorations, blowing up Elvis's home and creating more chain restaurants]], let alone the various attempts of creating ApocalypseHow as soon as possible. Yet you never see the Egyptians deal with Titan uprisings, or the Demigods reacting to the very real threat of the sun being eaten. True, the pantheons do try to stay apart due to the many comments that the meeting of god pantheons creates wars. And true the Greek and Roman demigods did, indirectly, work together against the titans, but that was more a coincidence, as oppose to a Superman and Batman vs General Zod thing. Though the new "Heroes of Olympus" series has the Greek and Roman elements working together directly. And a line mentioning a mysterious source of magic on Long Island seems to indicate the Kanes and their band of Egyptian magicians may also get involved. There is a short story titled ''The Son of Sobek'' which features Percy and Carter. After [[LetsYouAndHimFight nearly killing each other]], they team up to take on a monster crocodile. It's implied that there are forces at work to keep the Greek and Egyptian pantheons separate, and that someone had engineered their meeting in hopes of it ending violently between the two.

* Touched on in the crossover episodes of ''Series/TheFlash2014'' and ''{{Arrow}}''; The Flash's superspeed would make cleaning up a lot of Starling City's issues easier, but Barry doesn't have the tactical awareness that the Arrow -- who fights him to a draw with no powers and sticks him with an ambush arrow on two occasions when Barry thinks he's got the upper hand -- and the city's villains possess from violent backgrounds. Barry also does not agree with Oliver's more gray-zone morality when it comes to fighting Starling's crime, which Oliver is adamant is necessary with the darker crimes there as opposed to Central City. In terms of it going the other way, "Flash vs. Arrow" makes clear that the CCPD find The Arrow an unwelcome presence due to his vigilante killings in season 1. As demonstrated by a single meta-human in Starling City, Oliver would also have real trouble facing people with superpowers (not to mention a pissed-off gorilla with PsychicPowers).

* Rainbow of the [[RainbowSix]] games will occasionally perform stealth missions, even though [[Third Echelon SplinterCell]] would be much better suited to doing these missions.

** ''Batman: Rebirth'' seems to be a {{Deconstruction}}, as Batman deals with two new superpowered heroes who state they'll be protecting Gotham, after saving a crashing plane and Bats' life.

Bats' reaction? Incorporate them slowly into his fold, seeing what they can do and study their background. [[spoiler: He learns they're normal people who have a similar background to him, enough that he's pleased that advice he gave one as a boy has been taken to heart.]]

A sub trope of ReedRichardsIsUseless. Compare ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman, FantasticAesop, StatusQuoIsGod, PlotTechnology, TheOnlyOne, and LawOfConservationOfNormality. For this as a learning/interaction trope, see DieOrFly or SinkOrSwimMentor. When {{Badass Normal}}s and other heroes could become superpowered or much more powerful rather easily and then clean up their respective areas instead of some other hero, but for some inexplicable reason don't, that's OneSuperOnePowerset.

OneSuperOnePowerset. When the situation is [[JustifiedTrope explained]] by having the more powerful heroes busy dealing with some other problem, that's HeroOfAnotherStory.

** Also, while a ''Daredevil / Jessica Jones'' crossover is planned [[Series/TheDefenders eventually]], this trope is justified within the first season of ''Jessica Jones''. Claire Temple asks if Jessica would like to ask for Daredevil's assistance and she declines due to not wanting to endanger anymore lives.
