* Although it appears to be taken for granted, SilverAge {{Spider-Man}} comics deserve special mention. While the original Ditko comics were pretty good as far as slang went, when Peter entered college and gained a social life, the characters' slang got crazy out of hand. [[http://www.spidermancrawlspace.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/30.jpg Mary Jane is particularly impossible to understand]].

* In the early SilverAge, Snapper Carr was essentially the JusticeLeagueOfAmerica's collective {{sidekick}}. He spoke in constant slang and was always fixing hot rods, going to baseball games, and so on.

* During the 80s crossover series ''ComicBook/SecretWars'', most of the cast is notoriously guilty of this. In particular, SheHulk, when punching the Enchantress, declares 'Oh wow! That was, like tubular, you know -- TO THE MAX!'

* ''2000 AD's'' ''DRAndQuinch'' written by Creator/AlanMoore has the title characters describe literally everything as "totally amazing," "unbelievably awesome," or, like, "incredibly stupid."

* In ''NextWave'', Boom Boom uses phrases like "Oh noes!" and "ZOMG!" in both everyday conversation and periods of extreme stress. However, this is due to her actually being completely brainless, in the most literal sense of the word. WarrenEllis, the comic's writer, practically lives on the Internet and was taking the opportunity to lambast some of its stupider members.

** Acknowledged in the ''{{JLA-Avengers}}'' CrossOver when Marvel's Rick Jones says that Carr is an okay guy "no matter how he talks". And when Rick Jones thinks your slang is outdated, brother, you got problems.

* Subverted by JourneyIntoMystery (which used to be ComicBook/TheMightyThor), where Kid-Loki has gotten his hands on a [[BlandNameProduct Stark-Pad]] and is casually surfing the internet. One hopes he won't go TotallyRadical on us, and then not only does he use the same formal grammar as any Asgardian while typing, but he explains what he has discovered on the internet in equally archaic terms, making for great one-liners:

** Later in ''Comicbook/YoungAvengers'' he displays some shades of the trope because he tries to fit in with a bunch of midgardian children [[spoiler:and also body snatching, so technically he isn't Kid or even a kid anymore]]. He loses it when he gets an age up, though... and replaces it with occasional BuffySpeak.
