"Leaving aside the fact that the Watchmen characters were variations on pre-existing characters created for the Charleton Comics universe, it should be pointed out that Alan has spent most of the last decade writing very good stories about characters created by other writers, including Alice (from Alice in Wonderland), Dorothy (from Wizard of Oz), Wendy (from Peter Pan), as well as Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, Jeyll and Hyde, and Professor Moriarty (used in the successful League of Extraordinary Gentlemen). I think one loses a little of the moral high ground to say, “I can write characters created by Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Robert Louis Stevenson, Arthur Conan Doyle and Frank Baum, but it’s wrong for anyone else to write my characters." - J. Michael Straczynski (I do question the "very good" stories part when it comes some Moore's later works)

Food for Thought: They just released some previews for Batman Earth One: Volume Two at SDCC. Apparently Croc is in it, although no news for the Riddler.

While I have not seen the X-Men: Day of Future Past move yet, at least one plot point sounds very familiar to a plot point involved in a different "X-Men/Time Travel" story. Minor DOFP spoilers after the cut.

X-MEN #41 (Vol 2) was LegionQuest, the prologue to Age of Apocalypse.

Let's go there now, through the magic of television! )
