Well, first-place honors have to go to the Thing, obviously. Not terribly sure about the rest of the top five, though.

It's a fun little article. I wish the captions had gone into greater detail, though.

...I see what you did there... ;)

I'm personally surprised they didn't have that one Batwoman up there.

So what would he go by? The only one I can think of is Wolversteine.

Not sufficient proof that he's Jewish?

Well, Dreiberg, for one.

Then the rich parents....

Then the nose....

Come on he is so very clearly jewish.

Hardly ANYTHING in watchmen is handed to you on a plate, you just have to work things out for yourself.

And he's jewish!

EDIT; Slight ressurection. Didnt notice, oops!
