Added DiffLines:

* Nearly every ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' has these. In older shows, they were usually BridgeBunnies, but later series may also include TheStrategist or TheCaptain alongside them to assess data gathered on the MonsterOfTheWeek and command the rest of the team on the field.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' this role is fulfilled by [[BenevolentAI One]], the resident AI and {{genius loci}} of the Ducklair Tower, who serves as gadgeteer, information collector, physical base of operation and even chef. It could be said that the encounter with One is what brings Duck Avenger to the next level as a superhero.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', protagonist John Rumford plays this several times--Naturally enough, after he becomes the Chief of Staff, directing overall operations while the field commanders [[ShapedLikeItself command in the field]]. However, when he leads an expedition himself, as sometimes happens (for example, against [[LadyLand Azania]]), others are this to him (e.g., Captain Patel of Military Intelligence during that expedition).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'' parodied this by having a James Bond-esque secret agent confronting his WickedCultured nemesis (with two guys in a van feeding him info)... not over a high-stakes card tournament but fair games like guessing a cake's weight or hitting a rat as it comes down a slide. They exchange witty one-liners all the while, until they realize they're ''both'' getting them from the van guys, who they then beat up.

* Barbara Gordon, alias Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}, helped out many of the superheroes in Gotham City and around the world when she was Oracle, since she was crippled by the Joker in ''Franchise/{{Batman}}: ComicBook/TheKillingJoke''. However, she most often served as actual Mission Control for Comicbook/BlackCanary, Comicbook/{{Huntress}}, and even Comicbook/{{Catwoman}} in the ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'' comic. She also served as Mission Control for other heroes like Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} and Stephanie Brown (during her Spoiler and Batgirl III tenures).

* The Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica has this as a rotating position known as monitor duty. Whoever is on monitor duty is suppose to sit in the monitor womb and watch all the news reports occurring over the world and coordinate different teams to different disasters. It is considered a very boring job, ComicBook/Batman tries to weasel out of it whenever he can, and ComicBook/MartianManhunter often volunteers to do it because his telepathic abilities make the job easier.

* In Lex the action team is very strongly supported by a remote mission control hub and extra field assets if needed, even though they dont really need it because they're good at what they do.
