Superhero Origins: Dr. Manhattan
This scientist was involved in a horrifying accident that turned him into a blue demi-god. A man who was torn apart molecule by molecule, he returned from the dead with the intention of helping humanity. However, while he is invincible, all powerful and can see the future, he increasingly drifts away from his former humanity. This in turn makes the character of central importance to the tale of an alternate 1980s timeline and the global scheme that is afoot.
