They call me "Doctor Manhattan". They explain the name has been chosen for the ominous associations it will raise in America's enemies. They are shaping me into something gaudy. Something lethal.

A physicist who turned into a glowing blue-skinned being after he was accidentally disintegrated on a Field Subtractor (similar to a giant microwave oven). After a few months, he gained his consciousness and reconstructed himself again. This also led him to serve the government because of his superpowers.

He's very powerful that he almost has no weakness. Being able to disintegrate a person he sees, which made him an effective unit during the Vietnam wars. He can also teleport to anywhere, multiply himself, grow and shrink, and even see the past and future.

Ozymandias
Ozymandias

Ozymandias

Known as the smartest man in the world, Ozymandias is a retired superhero who still wishes to save the world. But his ideas are even thought to be dangerous.

He is a good gymnast and also possesses good and quick fighting skills. He is also able to use 100% of his brain, which makes him very smart.

His personality is quite contrast to that of Rorschach making the two as somehow symbolizing two different ideologies
