* In some versions of the BuckRogers franchise, Earth's capital city is located at Niagara and/or Buck has his headquarters behind the actual falls.
* One [[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] story has Dr. Sivana plot to destroy the Falls with a barrel full of explosives. He leaves the scene for a moment, when Ibac the Terrible rushes onto it, on the run from an AbhorrentAdmirer. Ibac sees the barrel, dumps the explosives, and stuffs himself inside, at which point Sivana comes back and, unaware of the switch, dumps the barrel (and the unaware-of-the-plot Ibac) into the water over the Falls. Ibac is rescued by the police, who think he's one of those daredevil nuts who try to go over the Falls in a barrel, to which Ibac dizzily responds, "Is ''that'' what I've been doing?"
