** 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.

** The Hulk has flirted with a few other descriptors, ''Rampaging'' and ''Indestructible'', but neither lasted very long. There's also the ''Totally Awesome'' Hulk, who is Amadeus Cho, not Bruce Banner; and the descriptor reflects how Amadeus is an immature teenager who enjoys his powers.

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 UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}. If the superhero gets a movie, expect the descriptor to be used at least once.
