Up, Up, and Away: IF starring super heroes - an IFDB Poll

It's often been said that super-heroes are a poor fit for IF, given the reliance of the former on flashy, colorful costumes and fights. But let it never be said that some poor bastards didn't try. What are some notable attempts at translating the superhero genre into IF?

(For what it's worth, I've always thought that slice-of-life in the world of superheroes a la Astro City would be the best way to do super muk-muks in IF, but that's neither here nor there.)
