A Super Fic is a work of fanfiction centering around one or more canon characters reimagined 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.
Examples:Anime and Manga
- Last Child of Krypton, where Shinji Ikari is basically Superman. The original fic included more elements of The DCU, and Asuka became the second Wonder Woman, Touji a Green Lantern, Kaji was trained by Batman... and so on. The fic got a rewrite focused more on the Superman mythos.
- Neon Genesis Evangelion: Valkyrie also by Chuckman: an Eva/Marvel fusion with elements of Marvel molding an Alternate Universe for Eva, and Evangelion: Age Of Marvels, a rewrite of the former.
