* And post ''New52'', from the pages of ''Batman Incorporated'', the DCU now has Spyral. At least one of their ploys was to create the FemmeFatale Batwoman, hoping she'd get close enough to Bats to uncover his identity (instead she pulled a HeelFaceTurn). They know full well how unpopular this agenda would make them, so they prefer to recruit rebels, rogues and washouts over genuine patriots, and operate heavily in private.

** In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'', the [[SuperSoldier Boosted Men]] can be considered to be this. They are the Cosmic Era's answer to [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} Cyber-Newtypes]], being ordinary humans pumped full of drugs and questionable implants to put them on a piloting level where they could go head-to-head with [[SuperBreedingProgram Coordinators]]. ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' would expand on this concept with the "Extended", successors to the Boosted Men who were more stable than their predecessors but required regular re-conditioning sessions and questionably useful "trigger words" which would completely immobilize them. Notably, not a single character from either category either gets a happy ending or survives the war at all.

* The [[Film/SuicideSquad2016 Suicide Squad]] was partially created as a response to Superman, with Waller gathering a group of dangerous metahumans/assassins (and Harley Quinn) to form a black ops unit. Of course, none of the members are even close to being able to deal with Superman save for perhaps [[spoiler:Enchantress, who ends up going loose and summoning a demon army]].

* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' has the Parahuman Response Teams, or PRT: an organization of [[BadassNormal non-powered humans]] equipped and trained to fight supervillains, either alone or alongside the superheroes. Squads are commonly equipped with reverse engineered [[HomemadeInventions tinkertech]] made by [[MadScientist Tinker capes.]] Their armory comes from associated heroes, purchases, or recovered materials from villains.

* Volume 4 of ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' has a special Black Ops unit of the Department of Homeland Security, dubbed "[[FanNickname Nathan's Nazis]]" and led by an evil Jack Bauer CaptainErsatz called [[TheHunter Emile Danko]], as the main threat to the Heroes. The fact that Danko and several of his men were willing to [[FalseFlagOperation False Flag]] a suicide bombing in D.C. and blame it on Supers to create a credible justification for their actions firmly shows [[MoralEventHorizon which side of the moral line they're on]].

* The Hellsing Organization of [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} the eponymous series]] clearly fits into this category. Despite deploying more exotic means of combating the Undead, good ol' military men with bulletproof vests and automatic rifles make up the bulk of the organization.

The normal members of the organization are wiped out nearly to a man when the Valentine Brothers come calling, so Hellsing has to draft a band of mercenaries called the Wild Geese, whose unconventional tactics do a good job at keeping Millennium's vampires at bay when they besiege the Hellsing building [[spoiler:until Zorin Blitz busts out her illusion powers to overcome their defenses and they are nearly wiped out as well]].

** The next game in the series, ''VideoGame/InFamousSecondSon'', introduces the Department of Unified Protection, a new branch of the military created in the wake of the Beast's rampage specifically to capture or kill Conduits. Ironically, [[WellIntentionedExtremist their leader]] is a Conduit whose powerful enough to [[SuperEmpowering imbue her soldiers with weaker variations of her powers]], making them even tougher.
