- Jet Dream could be seen as a Gender Flip Expy of Blackhawk... and/or an Expy of Pussy Galore and her all-female fliers from Goldfinger.
- The Warriors Three, from Thor comics. Word of God from Stan Lee says Volstagg was inspired by Shakespeare's Falstaff, but the Three, as a group, also seem clearly inspired by The Three Musketeers.

- Expy: Character is obviously inspired by Other Character.
- Captain Ersatz: Character obviously is Other Character, or as much as possible while avoiding a lawsuit by Other Character's owner.

- Expy first paragraph: "Short for "Exported Character", an Expy is a character from one series who is unambiguously and deliberately based on a character in another, older series. A few minor traits — such as age and name — may change, but there's no doubt that they are almost one and the same. Often seen in different works by the same writer(s) or production team."
- Captain Ersatz first paragraph: "The character equivalent of a Bland-Name Product."
