I have been looking all over the internet to answer this question and I can't find anything. There's plenty of Air Force superheroes, but I can't find any Navy.

This is the start of a gift idea for a friend of mine who is more into comics than I am. He recently joined the Navy and I thought it would be neat to get him some HeroClix characters that served in the Navy.

You might find this list of comic book members of the US Navy to be of interest though it looks incomplete and I can't vouch for its accuracy. Also, DC's Skyrocket was a Naval Aviator.

There seem to be quite a few Naval villians, though. The anti-Captain America was a Navy SEAL.

    The link you provided has proved helpful. It's still sparse, but that's obviously not your fault. :) – DaMavster Dec 11 '12 at 19:55

Alpha One: A metahuman from a non-aligned DC Universe continuum, who gained his powers from a radiation accident while he was a sailor exposed to radioactive water.

  • He later gains superhuman abilities which make him appear to be as powerful as Post-Crisis Superman, replete with flight, super-strength, near-invulnerability, super-senses and energy projection from his eyes.
  • However he is sorely lacking in the excellent moral sense we associate with Superman. He appears in a 12 issue maxi series called The Mighty.

THE MIGHTY was a maxi-series that ran from ’09 to ’10 and its plot upped the stakes significantly in the usual relationship between a superhero and his human allies. It’s about a regular cop in Section Omega, a special police unit that aides the operations of their world’s only superhero, Alpha One. However, when that hero starts becoming corrupt with his own power, the cop’s faced with the impossible challenge of trying to take down a godlike immortal when he, himself, has no superpowers. Paramount is considering optioning this character into a movie.

When the members of the Justice Society decided they want to fight WWII in the military, almost all the male members joined the Army. Except one. Johnny Thunder joined the Navy.
