* [[ComicBook/MsMarvel Carol Danvers]] can absorb a number of forms of energy, at one point using electricity as a pick me up.
* [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Johnny Storm]] can do this, although if it's heat (rather than fire) it's a strain and dumping the energy absorbed is a problem. In such cases he usually has to gain high altitude and then release the energy in a serious flare. After which he is usually only semi-conscious and needs someone to catch him.
* Killer Frost absorbed heat in order to power her [[AnIcePerson ice powers]]. Since you'd expect AnIcePerson to be ''weak'' against fire, this tends to be a dangerous surprise for heroes facing her.

* Simon from ''Roleplay/DawnOfANewAgeOldportBlues'' has the ability to control plasma, which also allows him to absorb it and its sub-properties fire and lightning. This is taken to its extreme when Luna, who can turn herself into lightning, is temporarily [[TheAssimilator absorbed into his body]].
* Most users of ElementalPowers in the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'' can do this with their appropriate element, as long as they are capable of generating that element in the first place. If all they can do is manipulate the element, then absorption is usually beyond the scope of their power.
