* Avengers Assemble got a lot of mileage out of this trope. The third episode of the series opens with Falcon using his high-tech combat flight suit to arrive at a mission briefing on time.
** Thor and the Hulk made microwave popcorn with Mjolnir's lightning summoning, and in another episode went to the Moon to wrestle after breaking too many things in Avengers Tower during their weekly sparring matches.
** Hawkeye uses his ImprobableAimingSkills to annoy his teammates by bouncing things off their heads, build sandwiches by tossing ingredients back over his shoulder without looking, and clean house at boardwalk carnival games.
