- "You're a decent pilot, but you're too emotional. You do know why they call it a "cockpit", don't you?"
- ―Bret Johnson to Carol Danvers
Bret Johnson is an officer within the United States Air Force.
Bret Johnson enlisted the United States Air Force, serving together with Carol Danvers and Maria Rambeau. Although Johnson admired Danvers' skills as a pilot, he continued constantly mocking her because he believed that men were more suited for the Air Force than women. However, Danvers eventually rose through the ranks to Captain, so Johnson had to accept her service within the military.
