    Default Favorite non-Big 2 superhero universes?

    On my end, Hero Academia goes without saying. I'd also list Worm and Overwatch, if the latter counts.

    The Toei heroes. Super Sentai, Kamen Rider, Metal Heroes, etc. Though, sometimes they're depicted as being in the same universe and sometimes they're not.

    The Incredibles (there are tie-ins beyond the two movies), and the Boom Studios Power Ranger comics.

    City of Heroes/City of Villains (MMO)
    Aberrant (tabletop RPG)

    Both settings are pretty hugely populated with colorful NPCs and organizations / factions and 'histories', although quite different (with CoH/CoV mostly being confined to the cities and 'play areas' of Paragon City and the Rogue Isles, and Aberrant being set all over the Earth and, in some cases, beyond, and having tons of different factions the players could be a part of, large and small, broadly focused or niche, like Project Utopia, the Teragen, the Aberrants, the Directive, DeVries, the Xtreme Warfare League (a super-powered 'worldwide wrestling league'), the Daedalus League, a half dozen national or church based super groups (like the Northern Lights, Australis, Nippontai, etc.), Greenwar, the Protectors, or the Queer Nova Alliance).

    Honorable mention to the GURPS IST setting for GURPS Supers, and the shared world setting for Image (before many of the Wildstorm elements broke off to join DC, although even without Stormwatch, the Authority, WildCATs, Gem 13, etc., they still had Cyberforce, Wetworks, Witchblade, Fathom, the Darkness, Youngblood, Spawn, etc.).

    A tie between two individuals from the same franchise;
    Future Trunks




    Great Saiyaman



    Yeah, yeah. Dragon Ball is basically makes the "Big 3", but this was about the big 2. And I dare you to tell me Future Trunks is not a hero. And Great Saiyaman is a fun and silly parody on heroes, with a nod to Super Sentai.

    Given TMNT's original influences, totally.

    Cosigning Power Rangers (especially the BOOM! Studios comics), Kamen Rider, Worm (grim as it can be, I find it to be a somewhat more honest look at how superheroes and supervillains would really operate if they existed in something resembling the real world), Overwatch, and My Hero Academia. I would also throw in the Whateley Universe web series and the Wildstorm Universe (when that existed outside the DCU proper).
