A ComicBook [[NamingConventions Naming Convention]] - sort of - with roots in UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}. 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.

* In ''Literature/TheNewHumans'' the most powerful, most feared [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Demihuman]] is known simply as... the Flying Man.

** Marvel also uses "[[TheNewAdventures All-New, All-Different]]" from time to time. It originated with a roster overhaul for the X-Men, and is now a go-to phrase to hype up {{ReTool}}s and relaunches. Case in point, 2015's ''ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel'' relaunch. {{Legacy Character}}s may also get "All-New" in their titles, which then stick as a simple way to differentiate them from the original (such as the cases of [[ComicBook/WarMachine Iron Man]], [[ComicBook/AllNewGhostRider Ghost Rider]], [[ComicBook/TheFalcon Captain America]], and [[ComicBook/AllNewWolverine Wolverine]]).
