If you had to join the Watchmen team as a new member in a
hypothetical sequel, what would be the character name you'd
call yourself and also what would be your (serious or humorous)
special power/s or ability you'd bring to the team.

...First of all, I'll assume that by "Watchmen," you meant "Crimebusters." They're only called "Watchmen" in the movie.

Secondly, you do know that Dr. Manhattan is the only one with any superpowers, right? That's kind of the whole point.

I would be called Able to Kill Everything Man Including Doctor Manhattan. I would be very very ironic because I would be like Rorschach and not have any super powers at all.

i'd be the grim reaper and i'd be kind of like batman, but i'd have a scythe... but oddly i'd be a really upbeat character kind of like peter parker in personality and i'd help grannies and kids cross the road.

I'd be Alan Moore.

I'd be called "Normal Guy in a Mask" and have no powers if I were a true Crimebuster.

I'd be Ozymandias. My powers would be to be able to jump ridiculous heights and distances without any real effort, along with being able to fling people like paper.

Strangely enough, I dreamt about this last night. I can't remember what my alias was, but I remember throwing knives and having a double-layered skirt that split over the lower layer, and I could throw open the outer layer to get to my knives.

I was basically myself- I'd been too young to join the team when superheroes were still legal, but I somehow got dragged into the plot due to living next door to Dan and fangirling him all the time (he and Laurie still ended up together, because I know better than to turn myself into a Mary Sue even in my dreams, apparently).

Adrian didn't even fight me at Karnak. I'd come at him and he'd just sigh and shove me out of the way.

Just like the n00b in Rocket Power... I would be the n00b of the Crimebusters... and thus naturally called THE SQUID.

My powers would include looking like a vagina/japanese tentacle pr0n.

Panda Boy! With my powers of Panda-monium, granted through the consumption of the tender young shoots of the bamboo plant coupled with the years of instructions I received from Chinese mystics while a young lad with my missionary parents. Panda Boy, the bane of poachers, polluters, and pirates! With the strength and senses of a bear and terrific climbing ability.

I'd wear a black and white panda-motif costume with an ecology "theta" symbol / logo on my chest.

Very goofy but fun, like Weisinger-era Superman stories.

Okay I change mine. I would be MC Escher Man and I would have the ability to bend reality and staircases. I would probably get shot on my first patrol but thems the breaks.

Escher Powers Activate!

Second option: Blot-Boy! Wise-cracking junior sidekick to Rorschach. Garbed just like him except diminutive, like the original Kid Flash. Says, "Like, hurm, daddio!" and "Holy Symmetry!" a lot.

This would make a hilarious parody. Not even kidding.

I don't know about a name, but my costume would be jeans, leather hacket, a knitted cap, sunglasses. I'd carry a bulletproof vest and my weapons would be on the Rorschach side of random, like using a spray can like a flamethrower, a baseball bat and a tranquilizer gun.

I think I've hit a new level of sad fan with no life in that I'm actually designing my costume.

I'd be an arms and explosives expert, y'all. As you can see, I'm dual-wielding pistols. That's just how I roll. 8-)

My catchphrase, you ask?
RRAAAARRL

OH OH OH! I know leopard kung-fu as well. Because I'm cool like that.

Shush.

But how do you protect your secret identity? You don't want snoopy reporters following you home or arch-enemies mailing you fruit cakes, do you?

OH YEAH?! Well I'd be a Doctor Manhattan energy bomb. I'd attempt to be as cool as THE SQUID and even imitate him by making energy waves look like tentacles, but I wouldn't be as loved by the community.
