Also, solar eclipses only completely block out the light in one relatively small area and the light reduction gets less pronounced the further away from the center of the eclipse, but in fiction tend to block out the sun completely wherever they happen to be. Lunar eclipses, on the other hand, can be seen anywhere on the nightside of the earth, but aren't nearly as dramatic since it's just a full moon with a red tint for a few hours (though a "blood moon" is often used in werewolf fiction).

* Franchise/TheDCU has the villain Eclipso. At first, a villain who only came out of his host's body during an eclipse, he has far surpassed that. And back in those days, the host quite sensibly tried to avoid being around when there was any kind of eclipse. You'd think that with an almanac and a modest travel budget, that wouldn't be hard, but he seemed to be really bad at it.
