Super Fic
A Super Fic is essentially a work of fanfiction centering around one or more canon characters re-imagined as superheroes, or at the very least they gain superpowers and spend the rest of the fic learning to deal with them. It can either diverge from canon at a specific point, or it can be an entire Alternate Universe in of itself.

Compare Superhero Episode, which is similar but more temporary. Contrast High School AU, which (usually) ditches the original concept of the series for high-school shenanigans.
