* ComicBook/BatwomanRebirth has the Martini elements of cool gadgets, exotic locales, and even a character who's a rough Q analogue, but has Stale Beer characteristics like moral grayness, a WretchedHive setting, and the title character having to face her dark past. Kate Kane's operations also lean more toward black-ops than black-tie.

'''Bathtub Gin Flavored''' Main/SpyFiction applies to civilians drawn knowingly or unwittingly into the world of espionage that is either "martini flavored," "stale beer flavored," or a "dirty martini." They may have or not have transferable skills to help them survive, and they may or may not become realized agents at some point. Examples include: Mrs. Peel (''Series/TheAvengers'', in the opening voiceover intro, she is introduced as a "talented amateur"), Chuck (''Series/{{Chuck}}''); Amanda King (''Series/ScarecrowAndMrsKing''); the show ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masquerade_%28TV_series%29 Masquerade]]'' (where civilians with special occupational or avocational expertise are drafted to help the government on one-off missions; and Tom Hank's character in ''Film/TheManWithOneRedShoe.'' Creator/AlfredHitchcock also exemplified this to a tee in his earlier films, especially in such stories as ''Film/NorthByNorthwest'', ''Film/TheManWhoKnewTooMuch'', and ''Literature/The39Steps''.'' A contemporary example of this is the TV series ''Series/TheNightManager'' starring Creator/TomHiddleston.
