* John Stewart, aka Franchise/GreenLantern, is a former member of the United States Marine Corps. Originally, John's backstory had him as merely an architect before becoming a Green Lantern. The DCAU re-imagined him as a Marine veteran, and this version proved popular enough that his DCU incarnation was {{retcon}}ned [[{{Retcanon}} to have been a Marine as well]] (which leaving his existing backstory intact; he became an architect after returning to civilian life). In his modern incarnation, his training in the Corps has been a defining part of his character and has served him in his job as a superhero. His experience as a sniper helped him take down [[SinestroCorpsWar Sinestro Corps member Bedovian]] by sniping him ''three sectors away'', and in the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' animated series, he battled alongside US Army soldiers (among them, Comicbook/SgtRock himself) in WWII when he didn't have access to his ring's powers.

* David Reid, a.k.a. Lance, of the JusticeSocietyOfAmerica. He's a member of the Marines when he's recruited and served as a kind of liasion between the two groups. Then he gets killed and comes back as [[ChromeChampion Magog]] (yep, the same character from ''Comicbook/KingdomCome'').

Added DiffLines:
* In ''Literature/WearingTheCape'', several Sentinels have military backgrounds. Also, there are a number of superpowered soldiers appearing in various books; one source is special military programs where volunteers are put in high stress situations, which may trigger "breakthroughs" (the advent of powers).

* More of a military ''[[{{Supervillain}} supervillain]]'', but ComicBook/{{Deadshot}}'s ComicBooks/{{New 52}} incarnation is a former Marine. And as rotten as he is, he DOES save the world as a member of the ComicBook/SuicideSquad.
