Police officers have always had a complex relationship with superheroes. Some cops view superheroes as vigilantes that need to be stopped while others support superheroes because they are too big to judge. I am thinking of including a cop character in my new superhero book and they will have a very complex relationship with the main superhero. To add to complexity, the cop will be related to the superhero in question and they won’t know until later. With the superhero persona, this cop would hunt them down and view them as a public menace. With the secret identity, the cop would view the superhero as a loving family member. When the cop discovers that their kin and the superhero are one and the same, things will become even more complicated between them. This police character will be a combination between Commissioner James Gordon from the Batman comics and Captain Quentin Lance from the show Arrow.
