* Plenty of supers in the Literature/WhateleyUniverse, including notorious supervillain Dr. Diabolik and his children Jadis Diabolik and Mal Diabolik. Jadis even moreso, because she suspects that her mother is actually the White Witch, and Jadis is the name of the White Witch from The Chronicles of Narnia.

** Wyatt Cody (Kodiak), an Avatar bonded with the spirit
of Narnia.the Kodiak bear (it later turns out that it's more complicated than that).
** Paine Deth, who naturally enough grew up to get a MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate in MadScience.
** Stella Woolfe (Lupine), who is the incarnation of a wolf spirit; [[http://crystalhall.wikia.com/wiki/Lupine as explained in her entry in the fan wiki]], both of her parents were distant descendants of a Native American tribe that had made a pact with the spirit centuries earlier to provide the spirit with a human host, but neither of them knew about it until after she was born.
** Harry Wolfe (Techwolf, no relation to Stella) and his father Red Wolfe, who suffer from a family curse. Whether the curse is their werewolf-like appearance or their terribly punny names is up for debate.
** Jay Blue Lake (Bluejay), an Avatar with the spirit of the Bluejay. However, given that he is a member of the Medawhila tribe, and was already chosen to study under [[MagicalNativeAmerican Totem]] as the tribe's lorekeeper when he manifested, this may have been arranged rather than by chance.
** June Summers (Majestic), the Incarnation of Hera/Juno. Again, given how the Olympians chose their human forms, this may ave been purposeful.
