I know it may or may not bepresent in GN but given its themes, do you it would still apply to them if they actually had powers? I turn tothe Ancient GReeks as examples, almost all the Gods behave like human beings with supernatuaral powers who punished mortals for even the most pettiest of things. The Gods watch the mortals but who watches them? Can beware teh superman apply to Watchmen even if they don't have actual powers (barring Manhattan)?

I'm not sure I understand your point. What do you mean by "Beware the Superman?"

I meant what would happen if individuals such as the Comedian, Rorschach or even Ozymandias were to gain superpowers? If we have superhoeres with great power and they watch over us but who watches over them?
