* {{Worm}} is interesting in that it has Commissioner characters that works against the main character, such as Directors Piggot, Tagg, and Costa-Brown. To be fair, the main character is a [[VillainProtagonist supervillain]], and they seem to be reasonable towards the heroes.

TheCommissionerGordon is a ReasonableAuthorityFigure who acts as an ally to the local SuperHero and provides the chief connection between the SuperHero and the official authorities. In other words, he's the one in charge of the BatSignal. He's often a police detective or commissioner, but mayors, district attorneys, and other government officials can fill the role too. Whatever his job, he'll be trying to do good through legal and mundane means, while the hero's methods will be more exotic, and possibly (though not necessarily) illegal. Expect him to go SteppingOutForAQuickCupOfCoffee at some point.

If the SuperHero is loved and accepted by the community and the government, the relationship can be open and public. If the hero is in the "[[HeroWithBadPublicity hated and feared]]" category, their relationship will probably be a source of political conflict for TheCommissionerGordon. He'll try to to keep it a secret or downplay it.
