Depiction in the series
The Power Ponies' comic serves as the focus of the episode of the same name. Spike is fascinated by the team's fictional adventures and exploits, staying up late to read the comic. While reading the comic in the Castle of the Two Sisters, Spike reads a footnote on the inner back cover of the comic, causing a magic spell to suck him and the Mane Six inside its pages. The seven of them are transported to Maretropolis, the comic's main setting, and they assume the roles of the comic's titular heroes.
In the season four episode Trade Ya!, Spike goes with his friends to the Rainbow Falls Traders Exchange to trade a mint condition Power Ponies comic book for another mint condition comic. In the season five episode Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?, Rainbow Dash and Applejack once again appear as Zapp and Mistress Mare-velous respectively in Ponyville's collective dream.
Depiction in the comics
On Friendship is Magic Issue #15 page 4, Spike mentions his and his friends' journey into a comic book.
In My Little Pony Annual 2014, the original Power Ponies protect Maretropolis from evil and super-villainy. Though they appear as a united team in public, they are shown to dislike one another and frequently argue in private. As a result, when the Mane-iac forms an alliance with other Maretropolis super-villains, their teamwork allows them to defeat the Power Ponies easily and strip them of their superpowers. It is only through Hum Drum's guidance on the teachings of friendship (which he learned from a television show) that the Power Ponies are able to become friends and a more cohesive unit. By working together, they outsmart and defeat the Mane-iac's league of evil and regain their superpowers.
In Friends Forever Issue #14, the Power Ponies are alluded to.
