As one of DC’s strongest superheroes, Doctor Manhattan has a variety of super-powers, such as predicting the future, controlling particles, and so on, which are unattainable by many superheroes. In the DC movie “Watcher”, the superhero debuted at the first time, and the heroes like Iron Man and Captain America have their own characteristics and can be recognized at a glance. Doctor Manhattan is good, directly naked body, revealing big X and people communication, is there any shame? Hey, then, why is he not wearing clothes?
No clothes are because there is no demand. Doctor Manhattan has the ability to observe beyond time and space. This ability has completely changed his three views, and gradually deprived him of his moral values, making him more indifferent to everything in the world. The clothes of the symbol of “civilized people” are also unnecessary for him.
However, this tendency of Doctor Manhattan is increasingly evident as he continues to adapt and develop his abilities. When he debuted in 1960, he wore full-body tights and usually wore the same clothes as ordinary people; he only wore vest shorts during the 1966 criminal striker meeting; he only wore underwear when he participated in the Vietnam War in 1971; the story in 1985 I didn’t wear clothes completely during the time. As for why there are not many appearances, it is because the Watcher series is an independent series. Although it is published by DC, it is not on a world line with other DC works. The story also has a clear time, not like other superheroes. Comics keeps pace with the times. In “Watcher”, superheroes such as Superman are not real existence, but the characters in the superhero comics, and the members of the first generation militia also put on masks to emulate the heroes in these comics, and even appeared in the movie version. The nightingale generation saved the scene of the Wayne couple.
For this reason, the “Watcher” series can not appear in the other works in the horizontal direction, and the story continues to be written in the vertical direction, and there are fewer natural appearances. For a long time, the “Watcher” series only has 12 episodes of “Watcher”, but in the past few years, DC published a series of “Watcher” prequels about the past and present of each character. In addition, there is news that DC intends to integrate the watcher series into the main world, in which case Doctor Manhattan will be able to compete with Zhenglian.
