Do we have this? Basically this trope would be about when heroes or villains first learn they have powers and first use them. Some examples:
  • The first Spider-Man movie when Peter first uses his powers.
  • The Superman Animated series when young Clark Kent is racing the train.
  • And in the CGI Astro Boy movie when Astro first discovers his jets and flys around the city.
