* ''Creator/MarvelComics'' villain {{Taskmaster}} has photographic reflexes and can [[MegaManning mimic any motion he sees]]. He uses this to copy his opponents' fighting styles, learn martial arts by watching movies, and also improve his golf swing and learn to ski from the winter Olympics. In high school, he became a star quarterback after watching one pro football game. And thanks to being an ''Series/IronChef'' fan, he's also an excellent cook.

** The movies did a good job showing {{Magneto}} using his powers casually, to pull up chairs for people or keep some steel balls bouncing back-and-forth in midair without strings suspending them.

* Young SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} repeatedly used their magic to move their Manhattan apartment in ''Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard''. Why go through all the trouble of moving if you can bring the whole thing, walls and all?

** TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks basically turned him into a ''full-bore doormat'' with this; flying dinosaur skeletons into the Metropolis Museum (with a specially-designed removable roof, no less!), smoothing out a ship's transport for Lois Lane by lifting it over his head...

* ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'''s Doctor Manhattan constantly uses his god-like powers in the laboratory, and he creates duplicates so he can *ahem* lavish attention on Laurie while working on an experiment. She actually gets pissed about that, both because he didn't ask (it's implied they've done this before) and because he was multitasking.

** Bart Allen uses his powers to get away with just about anything possible (eg. multitasking video gaming, eating and/or chores); part of the reason he was sent to live with Max Mercury is so that he could be trained ''not'' to do this as a reflexive reaction.
