Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })There's a whole lot of superpowers out there, and many different ways to get them.
Despite this variety, many heroes frequently end up with the Flying Brick set, an assortment of abilities including but not limited to: Flight, Super Strength, Super Toughness/Nigh-Invulnerability, and usually at least one of Super Speed, Eye Beams (or other energy-projection attack), Super Senses, or Super Breath.
These powers seem to be compatible with any given Backstory and Super Hero Origin, which also conveniently explains why any given hero's powers are vastly different from every other hero's flight, super strength, and Super Toughness.
Occasionally comes with a lesser, embarrassing power or a Weaksauce Weakness to "make up for" their incredible power. A common manifestation of the Lightning Bruiser type. Not to be confused with Brick Joke, nor bricks that are thrown during riots or robberies. Spaceships that look like flying bricks are Standard Human Spaceships. Replace Super Strength and Nigh Invulnerable with the power to shoot/cast Fireballs, Hand Blasts or the like and you get Flying Firepower.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Part of the reason for the popularity of this power set is that it allows for a flexible variety of story situations that are easy to set up within relatively normal human definitions, albeit to a superhuman degree.
The name comes from a flight sim for the archimedes (Interdictor) from 1989 which specifically used the term Flying Brick Mode for the invulnerability cheat (with a predictable Easter Egg if you switched to external view).
This item is available in the Trope Co. catalog.

Worm's sequel Ward also features several people with this powerset, including the perspective character, Victoria Dallon, formerly Glory Girl and now known as Antares. It's notable in that the main character actually takes the time to analyze some of the less obvious advantages this power set gives you, such as the ability to have leverage in a hand-to-hand fight regardless of footing or position, and uses them to great effect.

Worm:
Capes with this set of powers are referred to as having "The Alexandria Package", Alexandria being the most famous flying brick in the setting. Alexandria has almost total invincibility except for needing to breathe, and she also has Super Intelligence and a Photographic Memory on top of her physical abilities (her name is intended to be a reference to the Library of Alexandria, based on this part of her power set). The real source of Alexandria's powers is her body's cells are all locked in time at the moment she gained her powers, meaning it's physically impossible to affect them in any way. She can only be hurt by things that ignore physics, like The Siberian, or suffocation as her brain still requires oxygen.
Aegis has something like this power set but isn't technically invincible or super-strong. His body is able to provide redundancy for nearly any injury, as well as being able to rapidly heal otherwise fatal injuries. For example, his lungs can adapt to continue pumping blood should his heart stop working and otherwise fatal cuts (like those that would sever an artery) are only minor annoyances. He isn't actually significantly stronger than normal, but he is able to combine the ability to ignore any injures and to be in a state of ongoing adrenaline rush for hours at a time in order to throw punches that would normally break his hand or otherwise push his body beyond what a normal person could safely do in a fight. Also, He can fly.
Glory Girl has the full set of powers, but only her flight is the standard version of it. Her strength and toughness comes from a personal force-field that magnifies her physical attributes greatly, but whenever she takes or gives a big hit, the field shorts out for a few moments, temporarily deactivating her powers (except flight, which functions independently).
Scion has this as his one of his primary powers, the other being able to manipulate Pure Energy for ranged attacks. He's also by far the biggest winner of the Superpower Lottery in the series — unlike the other examples above, his Flying Brick abilities have no notable drawbacks or limitations, and he also has access to every single superpower ever documented and then some, since he's the one that gave the human race powers in the first place.

The Sentry. Makes Silver Age Superman look reasonable, in both raw power and power set. A weakened version was easily beating World War Hulk before he lost control — and that loss of control pretty much leveled Manhattan.
Also has a lot of subconscious Psychic Powers such as giving the entire world Laser-Guided Amnesia about himself, and turning his headquarters — a tower on top of a Manhattan skyscraper — Invisible to Normals.
Also has complete control over every molecule in the universe and may or may not be either God himself or the Angel of Death. Or... something.
No one has any idea what the hell the Sentry is. Current theories include one that he subconsciously rewrites history to make his origin... whatever it is at the moment.
Despite having all this power, he's practically useless as a hero since he has a lot of psychological problems and a Super-Powered Evil Side. Which says a lot about the difference in tone between the Marvel and DC universes.

Thor, the God of Thunder. Though rarely displayed, he's got Super Speed coming out the wazoo, being able to easily fight at faster than light speeds when the situation demands. Twist: Can't actually fly. Instead, he throws his hammer, which he can do with unerring accuracy for almost any distance... but doesn't let go. When he wants to stay in one place in mid-air, he spins his hammer around above his head like a helicopter. (His hammer, if you're wondering, can also float.) Also extraordinarily long-lived and has all the powers one would expect of a God of Thunder.
His flying brick status is roughly on a par with that of Superman, as shown in the JLA Avengers crossover, when they each won alternating fights, the implication being their powers are equal. Supes briefly goes dramatically above this into a sort of super flying brick, when Thor lends him Mjolnir and Captain America hands over his shield.
His inability to fly depends entirely on who happens to be writing him at the moment. It's possible that they might still stick with the "I throw my hammer!" bit but the way it's portrayed there's no way it could be anything BUT true flight.
And then you have to factor in his vast array of other powers. Elemental control, energy absorption — of all kinds — several varieties of Galactus busting attacks (notably the God Blast), one shot from which sent a well fed Galactus running for his life.

Several Digimon, like WarGreymon, Magnamon, and Omegamon qualify. A large majority of Ultimate and Mega level Digimon (including those mentioned) can fly, and almost all of them are also extremely durable and strong. Not to mention all sorts of other powers or abilities they may have.

Nova (the male one from the New Warriors) got his powers from an entire Nova Corps of Human Aliens with Flying Brick powers. They were kind of like the Green Lanterns, but then they were wiped out, all but him...and he got all their powers combined, catapulting him to a top-level hero (in power, if not in fame).

Nate Grey can, or could before being de-powered, achieve this by channelling his telekinesis through his body, allowing him to tank punches from Captain Britain and Colossus without being more than pissed off and catch Ares' axe. among other things. With his psionic armour, he actually managed to hurt Thanos (or one of the Thanosi).

In Fine Structure, the Powers gain this set of abilities, plus the ability to move in Bullet Time. Each new Power is specifically twice as strong as the last: Arika is 256 times faster and stronger than a normal human, while Jason is 512 times faster and stronger. It is of some concern that, if the trend continues, there will soon be Power millions of times stronger than ordinary humans.

Technically Zelgadiss in Slayers, though his Flying Brick power set does not come from a single source: Nigh-Invulnerability (being headshot from a cannon only knocks him out) and strength from him being a chimera of human, demon and golem, and flying from his mastery of magics (he also knows offensive magic spells, so that's close enough to the eye beams/breath mold). He is also a literal flying brick, having a body of living stone.

Avengers: Age of Ultron marks the film premier of The Vision, and he is by far the most straight-forward example in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Rather than requiring powered armor, a magic hammer, or wings to fly, he literally comes straight out of the box with the ability despite having no visible means of propulsion, and his "flesh" is bonded with Vibranium at a cellular level.

The third Blue Beetle, Jaime Reyes. With his armor, he can fly, is near-invulnerable, he can locate almost anyone in the world, his senses are enhanced, and he can carry a large amount of weight. (His practical limits in this capacity haven't really been demonstrated yet.) On top of that, the armor can generate practically any weapon imaginable. For that matter, Dan Garret, the original Blue Beetle in his Silver Age post-scarab power set.

Heroes. Peter Petrelli (who by the end of season one, had acquired Super Strength from Niki, Flight from Nathan, and, while not Nigh Invulnerable, absorbed a Healing Factor from Claire), and Sylar/Gabriel Gray (who can now fly, has a Healing Factor, and can use his telekinesis to enhance his strength). Both are basically unstoppable. Although in Season 3 they decided it would be funny to completely nerf Peter by leaving him powerless while Sylar goes on a killing spree and becomes one of the most broken villains ever created, especially when you look at the rest of the cast of this show.

Hawkgirl, as portrayed in Justice League. (The comicbook versions of the Hawkfamily are a case of Clothes Make the Superman.) Her edge is that she fights with an Energy Mace, which, in addition to smashing things, is very useful for deflecting lasers, disrupting energy fields, and negating magic.

Darkwing Duck once met up with Comet Guy, a Flying Brick who wanted to train with the universe's greatest hero. Twist? Comet Guy is as smart as a brick. Oh, and the sound of a bell causes him to dance uncontrollably (until he hears a whistle), injuring friend and foe. He also shoots little comet bolts and has to hide in his hat to travel between planets. Later Comet Guy takes Darkwing to his homeworld, a Planet of Flying Bricks! Who are all only slightly less stupid than Comet Guy.

In Justice League 3000, which replaced the legion in the New 52, their version of Superman is similar to the original, but lacks most of the original's "bonus" powers like heat vision. Implicitly this is because he's not Kryptonian.

Captain Britain. Twist: Only while in Britain or in costume. More recently, though, he's lost the geographical/costume-based weaknesses, and his strength is now dependent on his self-belief, much like Gladiator. The impact is that he's now potentially stronger than ever, but the minute his self-belief fails, he becomes powerless. A bit like Britain itself, really. His alternate universe teenage self Kid Britain introduced in Avengers Arena has the same confidence based powers, which he fuels by being a Jerk Jock bully at the Braddock Academy. He meets his end when the triple whammy of realizing he was manipulated by his girlfriend, being insulted by the girl with whom he cheated on his girlfriend, and actually being hurt by the guy he used to bully often weakens him enough that he gets his head cut off.

Blue Marvel (no relation to Ms. or Captain) is another Superman Substitute with a similar basic set of powers. He doesn't appear quite as overpowered as Sentry or Silver Age Supes — though he managed to hold his own with the former for a while, but is still probably one of the most powerful Avengers in terms of raw strength. Blue Marvel had the misfortune of starting his superhero career at a time when the public didn't like the idea of a black superhero. When he was accidentally unmasked, the public uproar resulted in the President asking him to retire. He got back in the game in modern times. Twist: In addition to the standard flying brick package, he is also a living antimatter reactor. He can manipulate negative matter energy from antimatter to fire energy blasts and create energy constructs. He can also manipulate matter on the molecular level, which he is more than intelligent enough to do so.

Parodied in The Demented Cartoon Movie. Super Blah, in his climactic confrontation with Evil Blah, swats away hordes of attacking Mooks by flexing his arms a bit, but shares the really stupid weakness of every other Blah. In an earlier scene he flies into space in an attempt to stop a meteor on collision course with the Earth, only for it to crash into him and then the Earth, which explodes again.

Whateley Universe: It's not an uncommon power set:
Lancer of Team Kimba plays this completely straight, being a 'psychokinetic brick' with super-strength, flight, and a forcefield that he's learned to extend a bit to cover weapons he uses, but no ranged powers other than picking things up and throwing them thus far. It has been stated that there are several such tricks ('knife hand', making the PK field frictionless, the Attack Reflector skill, etc.) which in principle any PK brick, Package Deal Psychic, or Telekinetic can learn, but that most never master more than a few of them.
Tennyo arguably has this as a subset of her powers, though it's easy to overlook underneath her flashy energy blasts/sword and reality-rending 'death blow'.
Note that there are several ways to get the same basic set of effects, including psychokinesis (as in the case of Lancer), density warping (e.g., Phase), gravity control (e.g., Superchick, G-Force), space/time warping combined with the Exemplar powerset and regeneration (e.g., Tennyo), and several others. This means that it is crucially important to know which kind of Flying Brick one is to use the powers well, and both information and disinformation about others' powers are no less factors than with other powers.
Just as important, because these powersets are fairly common combinations with equally well-known limitations, and given that your typical Flying Bricks have been living in the proverbial "world of cardboard" since manifesting and thus rarely use their full strength, there are several known ways of taking most of them out — for all its power, it is one of the easiest powersets to overcome through superior training and planning. This is the favorite trick Ito-soke uses in his introductory demo for Basic Martial Arts classes, with him getting the better of one such brick in four or five classes on the first day of school each year. To say that seeing an elderly baseline human doing this leaves a lasting impression (in the students minds, if not necessarily the dojo walls) is an understatement.

The Captain in Nextwave not only has these standard powers, which he refers to as his "generic set of super-hero abilities" at one point, but he also mentions the addition of telescopic sight. Twists: the first thing he did with his superpowers was beat the crap out of the aliens who gave them to him. Once called himself "Captain ☠☠☠☠" for lack of a better name; got seven kinds of it beat out of him by Captain America for using that language. The original joke to The Captain was that he had been all of the obscure "Captain ____" flying brick heroes in the Marvel Universe, of which there are several. Did you know there was a Captain Rectitude? There is. This was somewhat recharacterized in the actual comic.

In order to be a part of the 8 Guardian Generals from Asura's Wrath you need to have these powers as a part of your base powerset. Certain ones have different powers to distinguish themselves, but all of them (with the possible exception of Kalrow and that's possibly only due to his age) are this to some degree. However, few of them can actually fly but they can either jump really well or punch the ground hard enough to propel them into the air.

Legacy in Sentinels of the Multiverse has this as his powerset, with his additional power being an enhanced danger-sense. His powers are all genetic, passed down from his ancestors, and his daughter (who is another playable character) gain Eye Beams as her power. The Super Strength aspect of his powers is downplayed, though he has access to some attack cards that let him do a lot of damage. The Super Toughness is played up more, though, as his role in the team is to serve as the leader and damage-taker, and he even has cards that let him redirect attack to him, as well as shrug off damage or even ignore an entire damage type. His Evil Counterpart, Iron Legacy, however, dispenses with the whole notion of holding back; he uses all his powers to deal horrendous amounts of damage to everyone as well as shrugging off most attacks and healing damage.

Marvelman/Miracleman and family. A Captain Ersatz of the DC Captain Marvel, with the twist that he and his family and his enemies were retconned as deliberately created this way after his creator was inspired by a discarded Captain Marvel comic. He's very much the Flying Brick with speed, flight, strength and invulnerability, but the series indicates that his powers are mentally based, and he could develop new powers. At the time he was revamped into his modern form, for him to be so far along the Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism was also an innovative twist.

However, as of New 52, Kryptonians do gain one additional power, and that's to release a massive burst of solar energy (in fact, it's implied the heat vision is an extension of this) for colossal damage and power, but leaves them pretty dried up (i.e. vulnerable like a human) for 24 hours, presumably because they use all of the solar energy stored in their cells.

PS238 deconstructs this power in the form of identifying metahumans with this power as having the F.I.S.S (Flying, Invulnerability, Strength, Speed) package — it is the most common power by far (and yes, in fact more common than the Most Common Superpower in that 'verse). Julie, one of the PS238 students, is the 84th person to be identified as possessing this combination, and the lack of uniqueness — combined with the fact that most people with F.I.S.S end up being C-List Fodder at best or just get civilian jobs because it's hard for them to catch a break due to this — does not help her self-esteem.
She's feeling a bit better about that after a couple of adventures, to the point that she has now adopted "84" as her superhero name, with an appropriate symbol on her new costume. Of course, she still has to deal with other people who look down on her power set because it's so common.
There're also Atlas and Captain Clarinet, who are distinctive from normal F.I.S.S metahumans because they're not humans but the last Argonian and his son with a human woman, respectively. In case you weren't guessing, Atlas is a Captain Ersatz of Superman and therefore has those powers naturally.
This later turns to be a part of a second deconstruction: Not all Argonians are Flying Bricks. Like Earth, superpowers of all kinds developed naturally amongst some of their population. At one point the Flying Bricks, being the most numerous and powerful superhero type, took over and established noble houses to preserve the Flying Brick lineages. All non-powered Argonians became an oppressed underclass, and all non-flying brick superhero abilities were "culled". Atlas turns out to not be the Last of His Kind, but an exiled scion of the royal house—and they are not thrilled about his half-blood son.

For a time, Rogue of the X-Men was a Flying Brick, drained from Ms. Marvel as mentioned above. The only time her other power got used during this period tended to be when she literally took off the kid gloves. Twist: Rogue has only one natural power—that of being to temporarily drain the powers (and memories, and Life Energy) of others. If she holds on too long, though, it can become permanent...Her Age of Apocalypse counterpart was also a Flying Brick, though in that continuity it was the result of a very specific application of the magnetic abilities she had stolen from Polaris. As of Uncanny Avengers, Rogue is once again a Flying Brick thanks to her absorption of Wonder Man's essence.

Captain Mar-Vell: Twist: He's a supersoldier among his kind. The Kree typically only possess twice the strength, endurance, stamina and with some invulnerability. However, various scientific experiments along with cosmic powers increased his capabilities to greater amounts while gaining his "cosmic awareness" (allowing him to know exactly what he needed to know at any moment) along with being able to absorb and manipulate energy (he usually relies on solar, but can do so with others.) Other neat tricks include some form of telekinesis, faster healing and at one point, changing size after overabsorbing massive amounts of energy through a wrecked star.

In Mutants & Masterminds, the archetype for a character with this power grouping is called the "Paragon".
In the Freedom City setting, Centurion, his Evil Counterpart Superior, and Captain Thunder (with a side order of Shock and Awe) use this archetype.
Halt Evil Doer! has Divinos and other Mithrans (Alternate Company Equivalent Kryptonians) as well as Ultimatum and Valkyrie, the setting's version of the Shazam Family.

Marvel Cinematic Universe:
Avengers: Age of Ultron marks the film premier of The Vision, and he is by far the most straight-forward example in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Rather than requiring powered armor, a magic hammer, or wings to fly, he literally comes straight out of the box with the ability despite having no visible means of propulsion, and his "flesh" is bonded with Vibranium at a cellular level.
The eponymous heroine Captain Marvel once she fully realizes her Golden Super Mode is able go One-Woman Army on a Kree battle fleet even ramming straight though fighter ships. Also unlike other flying MCU characters, Carol Danvers can travel across galaxies without the aid of cosmic/magic assistance.

Grrl Power has several:
Maxima has flight, super-strength, invulnerability, super-strength, and energy beams. She can adjust the balance of her powers, for example, dumping everything into invulnerability to get Superman-level durability.
Main character Sydney "The Mighty Halo" Scoville gets flight, an impenetrable force-field, a super-strong tentacle, energy blasts, truesight/telepresence, and assorted other powers from her orbs, with the caveat that she can only use two of her powers at a time.
Super Hiro has flight, super-strength, invulnerability, and an improbable tendency to lose his shirt during combat.

Though Iron Man himself is powerless (aside from being a genius billionaire playboy philanthropist), all his superhuman powers are, naturally, in his high-tech Powered Armor, which lets him fly and at least hold his own against, if not overpower, supervillains and other superheroes alike. Tony's allies Rhodey and Pepper have also donned Powered Armor designed by Tony to become Flying Bricks as War Machine and Rescue. War Machine was equipped with a lot of firepower, while Rescue had electromagnetic abilities.

Superman's cousin Supergirl has the full Kryptonian pack: super-strength, super-speed, flight, invulnerability, super-senses, heat vision, several breath weapons... and some versions are an Action Bomb.
In both versions of The Supergirl from Krypton, Kara arrives on Earth and she promptly discovers in quick succession she is invulnerable, super-strong and can fly.
In Red Daughter of Krypton, Kara gets a Red Lantern ring temporarily. She gains the ability to vomit burning plasma, and her ring gives her an extra set of powers: creation of light constructs, force-fields, space warping...
In the first issue of Supergirl (Rebirth) Kara shows her flying brick skills: she survives being hurled into the Sun, flies back to Earth in a matter of seconds, and wrestles a super-strong werewolf.
In Many Happy Returns, Kara Zor-El and Linda Danvers fight Rebel, an one-time villain who is super-strong and can fly.
In Superman: Brainiac, Kara demonstrates her Flying Brick skills when she chases a missile that Brainiac shoots at the Sun.

Freedom Force actually averts this trope: Characters cannot use melee attacks while flying, making flying bricks essentially useless. You can either fly or be a brick. Man-Bot himself is more of an Energy Projector than a brawler, though he does have a high defense stat and strong melee attacks.

Kate Spencer, Manhunter. Her supersuit gives her the strength and near-invulnerability, and her staff allows her to fly. She is also the granddaughter of Iron Munro (a Retcon Captain Ersatz of the Golden Age Superman, though he couldn't fly) which helps with the near invulnerability part.

Uchi no Musume ni Te o Dasu na!:
Athena and her daughter, Clara, are parodies of Power Girl and Supergirl respectively and have most (if not all) their basic powers. Justified, since Athena is later revealed to be the actual Greek goddess of legend in physical form (chapter 9); making Clara a demigoddess, since her father was a mortal.
Chapter 9 also introduces Athena's younger sister, Artemis. She has the same powers as her sister and niece, with the added ability to create blades of pure energy from her golden wristbands.

The name probably comes from Champions, which refers to characters whose primary powers are strength and toughness as "bricks".
An extremely literal example from that game was a character who was a seemingly ordinary yet nigh-indestructible red clay brick, complete with miniature cape. Other than telepathy (for communication), its only powers were a ton of Flight and Armor; like the entry from Pyramid, its primary combat maneuver was what Champions calls a "Move Through."
"Brick" characters are relatively common in Champions — including among its cast of more or less canon NPCs — because buying up strength to at least some moderately superhuman level is relatively cheap (especially in superheroic campaigns where normal human stat maxima by default don't apply) and obviously has multiple practical applications, so that's one half of the trope right there. Adding Flight — actually one of the less exotic and more flexible movement modes the game has to offer — can be a bit of a no-brainer after that.
Champions also has a character type known as a "Demi-Brick" with less Strength (say, only enough to lift a car overhead, instead of a tank or small ship), but better reflexes and a wider variety of tricks.

Invincible himself, as well as all Viltrumites (including Omni-Man and Anissa), his brother Oliver, the Immortal, Black Samson, Martian Man, the Shapesmith (and basically every Martian), Bolt of Capes, Inc., Bulletproof, Allen the Alien, later versions of D.A. Sinclair's Re-Animen, and briefly, Monster Girl. Twists: Allen also has telepathy, although it's unclear what that includes; he's never used it for anything but communicating with people in outer space. Martians also have shapeshifting and intangibility. Also, most if not all Viltrumites are significantly stronger and tougher than all other Flying Bricks in this universe, although there's variation among them.
Later a whole army of Alternate Invincibles, and Conquest.

My Hero Academia:
Due to One Person, One Power, these are extremely rare. The closest is All Might; his Quirk "One For All" gives him enhanced strength, speed, and durability. While he can't actually fly, he can jump very high and then kick so hard that he gets a Recoil Boost on the air itself.
All Might's master, Nana Shimura, was the previous holder of One For All, which she wielded alongside her original Quirk, Float. This made her one of the world's few true flying bricks.
All Might's apprentice, Izuku Midoriya demonstrates this when fighting Overhaul. Thanks to Eri's Quirk, he can temporarily use One For All 100% with ease and propel himself in the air by just kicking. Later, he manifests Nana's Quirk "Float" alongside the Quirks of previous One For All users.
My Hero Academia: Vigilantes: Captain Celebrity is one of those rare true flying bricks. He has a tactile telekinesis Quirk that he can use on anything within a close radius, including himself; this allows him to fly, shield himself from harm, and lift things that should fall apart under their own weight. However, when he's extending his telekinesis too far (such as when he's shielding bystanders), he leaves himself vulnerable.

Many characters from the Heroes Unite universe fits this trope. Not only Energize and Dasien, as mentioned above, but also The Blonde Marvel, who combines it with a parody of Most Common Superpower, SHELL, who's just a Japanese Iron Man equivalent in a term of powers, and Relik, who has this set plus many other abilities, as long, as his armor is activated. Other flying bricks include Tazer (also has energy powers), Nebulon (also has energy blasts from hands), Amalgam, L.E.G.E.N.D. (a robot) and Comet Kid (essentially Green Lantern's powerset).

The Shazam Captain Marvel (who was not himself named Shazam... but now is) and the rest of the Marvel Family. Twist: His secret identity is actually powerless; he must transform into Captain Marvel by speaking a word of power, and he can use magic lightning as an offensive weapon. Furthermore, to differentiate from Superman, the fact that the Marvel Family's powers are based on magic and the gods means that they can resist magic/supernatural attacks better than Superman ever can (and Superman's explicit weakness, or at least non-resistance, to magical attacks means that if it ever comes down to a fight, as it often has, Marvel has an edge).
Later versions added a second twist: Captain Marvel's power is diluted among active Marvel Family members; the more members of the Marvel Family that use their powers at once, the weaker each of them become. Presumably, this was added when the producers realized multiple Captain Marvels running around would be too strong. In most stories it doesn't seem to apply to their arch-enemy Black Adam, who has the same powers, but is powered up by the Egyptian Gods instead so he's always slightly stronger than the Marvels when they're all powered up.

Lestat de Lioncourt in The Vampire Chronicles series eventually gains most powers available to only the oldest vampires by drinking the blood of Akasha, the first vampire. Besides his original power of telepathy (the Mind Gift) and the usual physical strength and speed of all vampires, this includes flight (the Cloud Gift), spirit walking, and the ability to kill humans with a thought (a variation of the Mind Gift). Besides this, he also becomes as close to immune to sunlight as a vampire can get (i.e. his skin tans and it hurts like hell, but he does not die).

Wonder Woman:
While very tough, Wonder Woman is (usually) not bulletproof, but has bracelets that deflect bullets, as well as the ability to react at super-speed. Then again, if you can take punches from Superman... Occasionally, she is explicitly bulletproof and deflects bullets solely as an intimidation thing. Another explanation of the bracelets/bullets thing is that she is your standard example invulnerable except against specifically piercing attacks (like bullets, spears, arrows, etc.), while the bracelets are the reforged Aegis of Zeus, which can stop any such attack.
The same powers are possessed by both Wonder Girls Donna Troy and Cassandra Sandsmark. These days, the main difference is what happens if you get caught in their lassos. Diana can make you tell the truth, Cassie can channel her anger into lightning, and Donna can use Mind Control on you.
Also, from the beginning and for many years, she had a silent, invisible robot airplane that runs on voice commands as well as normal piloting. This got retconned out down the line, though. And then got reintroduced because (A) it's iconic, and (B) it serves useful story purposes (taking people with her on her travels).
It seems it was just not practical to have a super-powered hero who had to depend on an airplane to fly or at least surf through the air. Robert Kanigher took over Wonder Woman in 1958, and decided that while the Amazons could not fly, they could be lifted up by strong air currents and "glide". Post-Crisis, the god Hermes specifically gave Diana the power of flight.

Golden Bat, who debuted in Japanese Kamishibai (Paper Theater) in 1930, was the Ur-Example. He was the first with all the Flying Brick ingredients of the modern superhero, including Stock Superpowers such as Super Strength and Super Speed, Flight, The Cape, X-Ray Vision, and Bat Signal. He was later adapted into a Manga/Anime character, and was the Trope Maker for manga/anime superheroes.

Martian Manhunter. Twist: An alien (not unlike Superman), whose other powers include shapeshifting (which also confers on him density control, invisibility (every now and then) and intangibility) and telepathy. The other twist: he's afraid of fire. (Depending on the era, it's either a psychological weakness or an actual physical frailty.) Even though he has heat-vision.

Zenith, a British Grant Morrison series, has a spoiled popstar named Zenith who has these powers, most of the time— they fade on a regular basis based on his body's biocycles. All the Cloud Nine "heroes" including his parents have this power set, although all of them can also develop Psychic Powers up through Godhood with training and discipline, sort of like Marvel's Eternals turned Up to Eleven.

Longtime Avenger Wonder Man is super strong, can fly, and even shoots beams from his red eyes. Twist: After falling into a coma due to the side-effects of the procedure that empowered him, his body converted itself into ionic energy. While he still looks human, he's an Energy Being. This granted him energy-based powers and removed the need for air, food, or water.

From the Magic: The Gathering setting of Innistrad, Avacyn, Angel of Hope is a good example of one. Although she's no faster than the average creature, she's really strong, capable of flight, and Nigh Invulnerable. Twist: she also has the ability to turn the rest of your creatures Nigh Invulnerable as well.
In theory, any creature in Magic with high power and toughness, and the abilities flying and haste, would fit the Flying Brick trope. If they have to be humanoid to count, angels like Akroma, Angel of Wrath are probably the best example.
With Wings of Aesthir any creature can be this!

Also from Wildstorm: the Wild CATS' Mr. Majestic, a Flying Brick with Eye Beams, microscopic vision, ice breath, superintelligence, telekinesis, and a limitless lifespan. Much like Superman is the standard against which DCU characters' power levels are measured, Majestic is the standard for Wildstorm. (In fact, the first Story Arc with The Authority features Jenny Sparks citing a superhero ranking system in reference to how powerful a forcefield is. Apollo, for example, is a "Majestic-class" superhero.)

Of all the utterly...well, bizarre Stand abilities in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Jotaro's Star Platinum is the most straightforward, with Super Strength and enhanced speed and precision. Despite this simple powerset, though, Jotaro still manages to use his Stand's abilities in creative ways, especially by exploiting the Intangibility that Stands usually have. By the time Jotaro fights DIO, he discovers Star Platinum is effectively a nascent version of DIO's The World, and his enhanced speed could be interpreted as a much weaker version of The World's ability to stop time (which Jotaro eventually learns to do as well.)

It might not be obvious, but Lala of To Love-Ru has all of the Flying Brick powers. She stronger, faster, and tougher than an Earthling, and her costume allows her to fly. She's also a Gadgeteer Genius. Lala doesn't often show these powers, because she's in a Harem Anime, so she usually doesn't need to fight.

Sodam Yat, a member of the Green Lantern Corps. Prophesied to be the "ultimate Green Lantern", he was briefly possessed by the spirit called Ion, meaning he didn't need a power ring. However, what makes him so dangerous — and a flying brick — is the fact that he's also a Daxamite (Kryptonians that immigrated to the planet Daxam who would evolve differently, gaining a weakness to lead)... meaning that even without the power of Ion, when he's exposed to yellow sun energy, he's pretty much Superman. During the Sinestro Corps War, he went toe-to-toe with Superboy-Prime (who has Silver Age level powers) and actually kept him busy for more than a few seconds. Added Twist: during said fight, Superboy-Prime stabs Sodam Yat with lead rods. His power ring now keeps the lead poisoning in check: if the ring is ever removed, he will die a slow, painful death.

This template is appropriately called The Archetype in GURPS Supers and is the only sample template that is built on the D-scale (able to destroy a modern tank). There is also a martial art named after this trope in one of the issues of Pyramid. Its main tactic is to speed up, then crash into the target. Practitioners have to provide their own flight and ability to survive such a collision.

In addition to members Superman and Supergirl, the Legion of Super-Heroes has a few:
Mon-El, a Captain Ersatz of Superman with the exact same powers, though as he is a Daxamite, (a genetic offshoot of Kryptonians) with his weakness is lead, not kryptonite. Andromeda, a Captain Ersatz for Supergirl and fellow Daxamite, is also vulnerable to lead.
Ultra-Boy, with the caveat that he can only use one power at a time. Although when using a Legion Flight Ring instead of his own flight power, he pretty much fits the trope.
Because every Legionnaire can fly because of their flight rings, Blok, the rock-man, is a literal flying brick. His postboot equivalent, Monstress, also qualifies.
Star Boy also had the "basic package" in the postboot continuity, plus gravity-altering powers.
In Justice League 3000, which replaced the legion in the New 52, their version of Superman is similar to the original, but lacks most of the original's "bonus" powers like heat vision. Implicitly this is because he's not Kryptonian.

Jessica Jones (debuted in the Marvel MAX series Alias) is a downplayed version of this. She can fly, but she gets airsick and she's bad at landing. She's also stronger and tougher than the average human, though in effect this just means she can trash human opponents with ease: her backstory includes catching a haymaker from The Vision (It's a Long Storynote Jessica (as her former superhero alter ego Jewel) was captured and Mind Controlled by the Purple Man for several months. In a fit of rage at a news story about his nemesis Daredevil the Purple Man ordered her to fly out to the Avengers mansion and kill Daredevil (mistakenly assuming he hung out there). Jessica, partially recovered from PM's Compelling Voice, mistakenly punched out Scarlet Witch (Vision's Love Interest) instead, and was chased down by Thor and Viz as she tried to flee.) that "only" put her in a coma for several weeks (it's strongly implied a baseline human would've been killed instantly). In Alias she once warns an Arc Villain not to shoot at her because she's Immune to Bullets, but her Internal Monologue says she doesn't actually know if she's bulletproof and isn't interested in finding out.

Strong Female Protagonist: Alison Green, aka Mega Girl, has Super Strength and Nigh-Invulnerability; while she can be stunned by blunt-force trauma, the only thing (so far) that's actually hurt her are a former villain's microns-thin blade-arms. Also, she can make enormous jumps and accidentally discovers how to levitate, which eventually progresses to full-on flight, since her powers fall under the umbrella of tactile telekenesis, and she is still developing. She's actually something of a Deconstruction of the trope, as she genuinely wants to help change the world for the better, but realizes that being able to beat up the bad guys isn't enough on its own to do that. The biggest lasting good she's been able to achieve so far include leveraging her name and connections to create an organization dedicated to advancing social justice for minority supers, and forcibly coercing a more selfish super into enhancing another's regenerative powers to the point of advancing organ donor medicine to an unmatched level.

Carol Danvers aka the current Captain Marvel (formerly Ms. Marvel), before her powers were permanently leeched by Rogue. But then she became Binary after being experimented on by the Brood, gaining a whole new set of powers including manipulation of the entire electromagnetic spectrum and some gravity control. And then got her old powers back with some new energy powers. She has flight, super-strength, resistance to injury, and the Most Common Superpower. Twist: She can absorb ambient and directed energy, and project energy blasts from her fists (though she also had a sort of "seventh sense"/luck power for a while), but despite her impressive power level she has always been something of a second-stringer. This was played with in the House of M event, where in that Alternate Universe she was the greatest non-mutant superhero in the world. And since people kept their memories of the House of M reality, her knowledge that she could be that good has spurred her to new heights, her own monthly title, and leadership of The Avengers.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:
The alicorn Princess sisters Celestia and Luna have the strength of Earth ponies, the magic of unicorns, and the flight of pegasi, plus many other magical abilities depending on the requirements of the episode. The first time these are shown is with Luna's Super-Powered Evil Side Nightmare Moon, who banishes her sister, brings about The Night That Never Ends, and demonstrates shapeshifting and teleportation abilities as well. The princess ranks are expanded in later seasons with Cadance, whose most powerful magic draws from The Power of Love, and Twilight Sparkle, who ascends from unicorn to alicorn with The Power of Friendship and Sufficiently Analyzed Magic.
Villains of two-parter season premieres and finales, like the Changeling Queen, Discord, and King Sombra, tend to be Flying Bricks as well.

Mistborn: The titular people, as long as they have proper metals to burn, have sort-of flight ability (Pushing and Pulling agains metal sources), are stronger and tougher than regular humans, have heightened senses and can also control others' emotions to an extent.

Child of the Storm: The fic blends Harry Potter with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (albeit with significant input from the main Marvel Universe) and elements of the DC Universe among many others, so naturally it has several.
Thor, naturally, with the additional Flying Firepower abilities.
Loki, when he wants to be, though he doesn't like flying and much prefers teleporting — which is, in any case, faster.
The late Jor-El was this, and estimated to be in Thor and Loki's weight class.
Iron Man and War Machine both qualify, particularly in their most powerful suits.
Diana Herculeis a.k.a. adolescent Wonder Woman, who gets more powerful as time goes by.
Warren Worthington III a.k.a. Archangel is a low level version of this — he's mentioned as being able to bench press a troll, likely regarding being hit by a speeding car as an inconvenience and irritation and he has Razor Wings that enable him to fly at mach speeds. When HYDRA attack Hogwarts, he demonstrates just how terrifying this combination can be.
Captain Mar-Vell.
A certain Mister Clark Kent — though he hasn't yet learned to fly.
Harry himself is growing towards this. At the time of writing, he's currently a downplayed version, in that he can fly, but has roughly Super Soldier levels of strength, speed, and toughness, nowhere near where he will be one day - though he can use his Psychic Powers to mimic it.

Silver Surfer. Granted but a portion of the Power Cosmic that is Galactus' to wield, he is incredibly strong, fast, and tough. Twist: Can fly himself, but also has a high-tech "surfboard" that allows him to do so without expending his own energy, enhances his maneuverability, and seems to increase his potential top speed beyond the speed of light. Similarly, all other Heralds of Galactus, though SS is the only one with a surfboard.

The titular character of One-Punch Man is noteworthy In-Universe for his bizarrely simple power set; after three years of simple but strict strength training he lost all of his hair and gained the ability to kill damn near anything in one punch, as well as Super Speed, enhanced jumping that mimics Flight, and toughness that let him shrug off a strike that sent him to the Moon. Later revelations point out that it wasn't necessarily the training that gave him his powers, but his sheer determination to become the strongest that allowed him to overcome a universal limiter set on growth potential. Basically, Saitama trained so hard and consistently that he weaponized Heroic Resolve and used it to gain physical abilities that are greater than any being in the entire universe.

One storyline in JLA subverted this tragically. Superman was in the middle of a rescue operation saving people trapped in a burning building and was stuck between trying to hold up a huge gas tank and saving a bunch of people at the same time. A new hero appeared and offered to hold up the gas tank while Superman got the people out. It worked, but the new hero realized too late that he lacked the Nigh-Invulnerability part of the package—-or more specifically, he wasn't fireproof— when the gas tank ruptured. Worse, the new guy had a family who all shared the same powers since they all encountered the same power giving meteorite and they blamed Superman for his death. Superman blamed himself too because he just assumed that the other guy also had Nigh-Invulnerability since this is so common in The DCU.

The Otome in Mai-Otome are mass produced by empowering women with nanotech devices called GEMs. The twist: Most "common" Otome only have the Flying Brick powerset but most Meister ranked GEMs come with summonable melee weapons called Elements. These can grant additional powers including Razor Floss, Flying Firepower abilities and invisibility. Extra twisty lemon: Otome are Always Female and have a Weaksauce Weakness in the form of Virgin Power. They are also schooled in formal etiquette and ballroom dancing of all things since they are also meant to be members of a royal court or high-ranking military officials.

The Ultimates had the Liberators invade the United States with thousands of Flying Bricks. The twist? Their super-suits had to be bonded to their bodies, and shortened their lifespan to mere months.

Astro City:
Samaritan, who is routinely depressed due to the fact that he spends too much time saving people to even bother living a normal life. In particular, he never gets a chance to do what he most loves to do—fly just for the sensation of flying.

Beautie, the life-sized doll, as well.

Rayek in ElfQuest is the only elf to get the basic set: He develops his innate telekinesis into flight (self-lifting), super-strength (other-things-lifting) and nigh-invulnerability (shielding). Additionally, he was born with hypnosis (cool eye beams) and telepathy. Most other elves have to make due with one or two Superpower Lottery skills at best.
During the period where he was supercharged with a bunch of other dead elf souls, he managed enough Force Beams from his hands to put a giant canyon in the ground.

City of Heroes lets you build toward this model—start with the Tanker (hero) or Brute (villain) archetype, and the Super Strength and Invulnerability powersets. At level six, add the Flight power pool (and don't forget to take Flight itself at level 14). To really come dangerously close to Superman, take the Body Mastery epic power pool when your security level gets into the 40s, and you'll get your eye beams and a few other goodies. But really any powersets taken by those two archetypes work about the same, with different quirks and special effects. Of course the game's signature hero, Statesman, has the typical Flying Brick powers. (His twist? Lightning powers, since he's the Incarnate of Zeus.)
There's also the Stone Armor set. If you take flight, you can literally become a flying brick.
Twist: In order to fly, a character using Stone Armor needs to deactivate some or all of their protective powers. You can fly, or be a brick, but not both at once.

OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes:
With the premise of the show being that literally everyone has powers, it is no wonder they have an example of this- theirs being Chip Damage, a perfectly generic superhero who K.O. and most others idolize and who turns out to be a robot built to give people hope to become heroes.

Several Transformers doubtlessly qualify, and being giant, transforming, living robots, they also tend to boast incredible firepower and other skills and abilities. In G1, every Decepticon could fly in robot mode, whether they turned into a jet or a gun or a cassette player.
It goes double for the Autobot Superion. Yes, he's made up of five jet-bots, but put 'em all together and you get something that looks about as aerodynamic as an office tower. The counterparts' engines wings are neither large enough nor placed properly on Superion that you get the idea that they're responsible at all for his flight. It's clear the writers thought "he's made of jets, so he flies. Rule of Cool, man." and never asked themselves "what makes him fly?"
As all Decepticons fly, so do Decepticon gestalts. Including the hulking-even-by-gestalt-standards Devastator, made of construction vehicles. In all these cases, they just levitate into the air like Superman, and fly as far and as fast as the plot requires today.
At least Bruticus, and therefore his Transformers: Robots in Disguise repaint Ruination, has one component that's a helicopter. It's kinda hilarious to see Ruination fly around by the tiny propeller on its shoulder.
This goes for Gobots as well.

Fighting Fantasy: In Appointment with F.E.A.R.: It's one of the four superpowers you can choose from, and the one that makes the game easier to beat. However you are not at a Superman level of invulnerability — you can be shot dead by an ordinary handgun with a single shot or roasted by a vehicle mounted flamethrower or killed by a laser cannon.
