* '''The Watsons''' came to prominence in England in the mid-19th century when the famed Army doctor [[Literature/SherlockHolmes John Watson]] made the acquaintance of the legendary "consulting detective" Sherlock Holmes, and chronicled his adventures while accompanying him on a great many cases. Several years after John Watson settled down with his first wife Mary Morstan, their sole son was ultimately forced to flee to America to avoid the wrath of Professor James Moriarty's fractured crime syndicate. One of Watson's grandsons eventually settled down to a quiet life in the country [[http://www.mercywatson.com as a pig farmer]]. But another moved to New York City to seek his fortune, where he eventually gave birth to ComicBook/MaryJaneWatson (named after her distant descendant Mary Morstan), who was married to the famous crime-fighter ComicBook/SpiderMan for several years.
* '''The Drews''' got their start in the military after one [[Literature/BrewstersMillions Colonel Drew]] became a hero in the American Civil War, and came close to marrying a certain "Monty Brewster" after he inherited several million dollars. They would later become legendary in the world of crime-fighting after the attorney Carson Drew and his precocious daughter [[Literature/NancyDrew Nancy]] became involved in several baffling cases that rocked upstate New York in the late 1930s. Carson's great niece [[ComicBook/SpiderWoman Jessica Drew]] would carry on the family legacy after she accidentally gained superpowers from an experimental serum laced with spider DNA, and ultimately became a notable (part-time) member of ComicBook/{{the Avengers}}.

A lot of fiction has been made based on the idea that there was some kind of atomic war in the three generations after WorldWarTwo. A ''lot''. If its coming, then we ought to see it sometime around TheEighties, since atomic war fiction before then tends towards potenially kick-ass after-effects (example off the top of my head - Asimov's "I, Robot" collection), while fiction during and after then points up potentially horrific side-effects (''Film/{{Threads}}'', ''Film/MadMax''), while also marking a rise in the number of [[Film/{{Commando}} guntoting g]][[Franchise/{{Terminator}} oons in pop fi]][[Franchise/{{Rambo}} ction]]. Maybe it ties into the ComicBooK/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths, maybe it doesn't. Whichever, our protagonists better [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_winter dress up warm]], and start watching out for [[ComicBook/YoungbloodJudgmentDay cyborg-versus-atomic-zombie brutality]]...

* The famed archaeologist [[Franchise/IndianaJones Professor]] '''[[Franchise/IndianaJones M]]'''[[Franchise/IndianaJones arcus Brody]] was the "M" of an American League that formed after WorldWarII. He faked his death after secretly using the Holy Grail to make himself immortal, and formed a new League based at '''M'''arshall College (which also housed a cache of magical artifacts that he amassed from his past travels).

* [[Literature/IfThisGoesOn Nehemiah Scudder]] was elected president of the United States in 2012. Scudder proceeded to establish a theocratic dictatorship with himself as its totalitarian First Prophet. Dissidents in the new "[[Literature/TheHandmaidsTale Republic of Gilead]]" were either killed or exiled to [[Film/EscapeFromLA a penal colony in Los Angeles]]. Scudder's oppressive policies towards women were notorious as Scudder made them act as sex slaves in the wake of [[Film/ChildrenOfMen the mass sterility epidemic]]. Ultimately Gilead would be (mostly) overthrown by [[Series/Jericho a series of nuclear terrorist attacks that shattered the country]], though parts of the country remained under the rule of Scudder and later prophets until a revolt in the year 2100.
