: When receiving super powers, a character goes through a Gender Bender
- Straight: Mike receives super powers, and becomes Michelle as a direct result.
- Exaggerated: The average-Joe Mike receives super powers, and becomes the world's-most-desired-woman Michelle as a result. Yay!
- Downplayed: Mike receives super powers, a side effect of which turns him androgynous.
- Those who can bear these superpowers are Always Female (like Valkyries.)
- The Green Rock that effects this power also floods the body with female / male hormones, potentially turning its user into becoming the opposite sex.
- Mike loses his powers when a spell turns him into Michelle.
- Or, Mike gets turned into Michelle and doesn't get superpowers, but then gets superpowers from some other source and can turn back to male using them.
- Subverted: It's told that the powers Mike is about to receive will change his gender, but after receiving them, he is still a boy...
- Double Subverted:
- The gender alteration was a delayed effect.
- "Mike" was already Michelle in disguise. Mike didn't appear to change, but he/she is no longer wearing a disguise.
- Parodied: Mike gains powers after a perfectly mundane (if easy) sexual reassignment surgery Gone Horribly Wrong.
- Zig Zagged: Michelle/Mike keeps changing back and forth between her/his female and male forms, getting different superpowers for each form.
- Averted: No one changes gender upon receiving powers.
- Enforced: Michelle is an Wish Fulfillment made by an author with Transsexual tendencies.
- "I received new powers and became a girl. Go figure."
- "Look at you... Blessed with power and beauty, and still you find a reason to complain! Seriously Michelle: What. The. Hell!"
- Invoked: An aspiring Trans Sexual person seeks an Enigmatic Empowering Entity to bestow upon him/her exactly this kind of power. Double profit!
- Exploited: Michelle starts dating one of his lesbian classmates/workmates/other.
- Defied: Mike has a super power that turns him into a girl if overused, he makes sure to never cross that limit.
- Discussed: ???
- Conversed: ???
- Deconstructed: Michelle has to deal with suddenly becoming a girl, and all the troubles that comes with it (ID, social security, social issues, hormones, periods...), as well as all the troubles that comes with being a Super Hero.
