A ComicBook [[NamingConventions Naming Convention]] - sort of - with roots in the SilverAge. The superhero's name is preceded by some sort of silly, over-the-top adjective. Usually in the actual book's title even if rarely used in the story. Keep in mind that not just any descriptors qualify for the trope - "[[TheNewAdventures New Trope-Man]]" is too simple, but "All-New, All-Different Trope-Man" can be sufficiently over-the-top. Now mostly used in the modern day either due to the GrandfatherClause or as a deliberate homage to the SilverAge. If the superhero gets a movie, expect the descriptor to be used at least once.
