Under Comic Books, we have this:

  • Jessica Jones of the comic Alias (not an adaptation of the TV show) is a private investigator who has super strength, super durability and can fly. So why doesn't she become a superhero? Well actually she retired from being a superhero: you see, she lives in the Marvel Universe...yeah...

    • Case in point: she quit being a superhero after enduring eight months of horrifying Mind Rape at the hands of the Purple Man and being beaten into a coma by the Avengers (who would have likely killed her if Ms. Marvel hadn't recognized her) after she attacked them under the Mind Control of the former...only to find at the end of the ordeal that during all this time no one noticed she was missing.

That's all quite interesting, but what does any of it have to do with being overshadowed by more awesome characters? I don't see how this "example" is relevant to the trope.

No one has offered a justification for it, so I'm deleting the example.

Considering he was the former trope namer, shouldn't Krillin be used as the page image? I'm pretty sure Dragonball Z is even more well known that Naruto.
