When you have Superman zipping around saving the world, or the Avengers saving New York on every news station, people who have always had powers, fall into powers, and even non-powered vigilantes, would start to take visual cues from "that guy on tv."

We do it all the time in real life. People seek out celebrity looks, why wouldn't other powered individuals seek out a "superhero" look?

I have to disagree. I think it would be kinda silly if all other heroes were just Superman copycats. I mean the "I wanna be a superhero so I dress like one" schtick worked in Kick-Ass but it was a satire/parody movie. In serious movie it probably wouldn't work.
