* General Jonathan "Herc" Stone in ''ComicBook/GreenLantern''. As the Commander of Edwards Air Force Base, he's regularly forced to answer the call when extraterrestrial threats reach Earth's doorstep, to the point that he keeps a "brig" in the base for imprisoning rogue aliens and their weapons. And as Hal Jordan's commanding officer in the Air Force--and [[SecretKeeper one of the few people who knows about his "other job"]]--he occasionally serves as Green Lantern's MissionControl during missions on Earth.
