Superhero Plus!

A dwarf in purple spandex?

A cowboy with a red cape who refuses to carry a gun?

A togaed Roman with a utility belt.

An African tribal nebish who secretly saves his people from the European invaders.

A Klingon with a (Klingon equivalent of a) K across her chest and a penchant for dramatic entrances.

Take the superhero genre and combine it with an unexpected genre. If you're stumped for a new genre, there's a randomizer at the Great Expectations post.

If you need to brush up on your superhero conventions, cliches and tropes, there's a huge list of Superhero Tropes at TV Tropes. (Warning, TV Tropes can make several hours of your life disappear.)
