Secret Origin Of Watchmen's Original Heroes

Illustration for article titled Secret Origin Of Watchmen's Original Heroes

Yet another sign that Zack Snyder's Watchmen movie will pay slavish tribute to the Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons comic: this old-timey style photo of its original superhero team, the Minutemen. They're the earliest superheroes in the Watchmen universe, and their division is what builds character and history for the modern-day costumed avengers. As with almost all of Snyder's images so far, the picture is a pretty spot-on recreation of the picture from the graphic novel. Starting on the left is Silhouette, Mothman, Captain Metropolis, Nite Owl, Dollar Bill, the Comedian, Silk Spectre and Hooded Justice. [Ain't It Cool News]
