I noticed that many of the superheroes in Watchmen were based on other superheroes from both DC Comics and Charlton Comics. They were not carbon copies. They were reimagined into something new with their own unique flare. The Comedian was based on the Peacemaker, Ozymandias was based on Thunderbolt, the Silk Specter was based on Black Canary, Nite Owl was based on Blue Beetle, Rorschach was based on the Question, and Doctor Manhattan was based on Captain Atom. I am thinking of following Alan Moore’s example by drawing inspiration of other superheroes in order to create my own characters. I will also base my characters’ personalities on various aspects of my own. The only problem I have is trying to come up with original names for my superheroes.
