The position of the HU Commander is given to the individual who leads the UN-run superhero team called the Heroes Unite Initiative. In total there have been two official HU Commanders. There is also a third, unofficial one, following the dissolution of the Heroes Unite Initiative.
Heroes Unite: The BeginningEdit
This was not a formal organisation and once the threat was defeated the heroes went their separate ways until the formation of the Heroes Unite Initiative. Bombshell took tactical command during the fight against Deuce and could arguably be considered the prototype HU Commander.
Major Natasha Lawler (The 1st Commander)EditMain Article: HU Commander (Natasha Lawler)
Natasha Lawler was the first individual to be appointed by the UN as Commander of the Heroes Unite Initiative and was the Commander for most of the Initiative's existence.
She led the HU initiative with great skill until their mission against the shadow demon, Darkness. After trauma and exposure to dark mystical energy on this mission, her more aggressive and less rational personality began to come to the surface.
The HU Commander began a worldwide hunt for rogue HU member Energize and became increasingly obsessed, going to extreme lengths to capture him.
As a result of her increasingly ruthless behaviour and disregard for authority, Natasha was relieved of her position as the HU Commander by her father, Colonel Franklin Lawler.
Colonel Franklin Lawler (The 2nd Commander)Edit

Colonel Franklin Lawler was in overall command of both the Heroes Unite Initiative and the Armoured Soldier Program.
Once the threat of Nemesis had been defeated, Colonel Lawler realised that The Heroes Unite Initiative had lost all credibility and disbanded the organisation.
