There is a range of OK memes. Many have the caption "okay" or "ok." There are also spinoffs featuring Spiderman and other characters. One such meme, Saitama OK, originated from a Japanese webcomic called One-Punch Man in which the lead character is often indifferent to the action around him. Sometimes it's someone holding up the OK hand signal.
