Nite Owl

How would he fair in DC/Marvel's street level?
Which would he fair better? Which heroes would he get along with?
Nite Owl is my personal favorite Watchmen character.
Might get some flack but I did like Patrick Wilson's performance in the movie.

        They all have pretty great designs. I would have preferred it if Silk Spectre II stuck to her more flesh-colored outfit, but since they turned her costume into essentially a smiley (as a link to The Comedian), it's fine as it is.

    Patrick did fine, yes.
    As for how he'd fair, I guess he'd be comparable to Blue Beetle and Batman in terms of efficiency.

      I assume you mean Ted Kord's Blue Beetle and not Jaime

    Wish I could say that he would be fine, but everything except Manhattan is underpowered. Even Veidt.
    lol, I think that he's too positive and relaxed to partner up with batman

    Probably be a C-Lister, if not suffer Moon Knight's similar plight of being accused of just another lite Batman by casuals.

    He'd fare decently at street level. We never really see "Prime" nite owl in the comic so it's hard to know. But i think he'd be a solid C lister, tackling non supernatural things, maybe occasionally teaming with the question for investigations

    Well he's basically just Ted Kord with owl themes, so...

    He would probably fair okay taking down small time criminals, but wouldn't handle being in the same league as Batman for example

    I feel like Ted Kord is the sort of level he would be on - which is perhaps fitting based on his creative origins. Nite Owl seems like the sort of character that would fit the Justice Society, what with the character's association with teams and there being two people to have assumed the identity.

    Probably like Blue Beetle does.

    It's weird because he's based on Ted Kord, but they don't feel similar at all. I honestly feel like he'd work better in Marvel. You could have him hang out with Daredevil, the Punisher, etc. And he wouldn't feel out of place.

      Wasn't Kord developed until after Watchmen?

        No. Kord was well established before Watchmen. All the Watchmen are based on the old Charlton characters which DC had recently acquired. DC was scared Moore would butcher their new acquisitions and so he made his OCs based off them.

          I see that he got a series at DC in 1986, so around the same time as Watchmen.
          The Charlton version, from what I remember, was very short-lived.

          They were so wrong. Although I like them having distinct differences.

            It makes sense, the executive editor of DC at the time, Dick Giordano, also used to be the editor of Charlton in the past and was fond the characters of his old gig and didn't want them to get a bad end and become unusable

            It was for the best. Watchmen would not have been as good with the Charlton characters.

    Significantly less than Batman, + because Nite Owl doesn't have people claiming he could beat Doctor Manhattan "with prep time."

      Literally everyone in Watchmen are more capable than Batman was in comics of That era, except Frank Miller TDKR and when in For Man who has everything where Robin walking in a fricking Arctic snow in pixie boots and green trunks.

      Either Moore is absolutely moronic (Silver/Bronze Age Earth 1 Batman had Arctic suits for... Arctic weather) or it was another point of "satire"

      "People" that pretend like Crimebusters are "lame" In terms of feats clearly never did anything physical in real life

      well which is it

    Eh I mean it would depend on the writers but of course Nite Owl and Rorschach are basically just Ted Kord and The Question, but they can die or be psychotic or impotent to make gritty points about “real life,” hence they do worse because of the tone.

        If he could tolerate working next to Comedian, who was a murdering, raping, all-around rude twat, I think he can at least tolerate Punisher, who is just a murderer, with none of the rape and crude behavior exhibited by Comedian.

          I don't think he exactly liked Comedian. Remember when they were dealing with those rioters?

            He didn't like Comedian, and he especially didn't like him during the riot because they were meant to disperse it peacefully, but Comedian being Comedian, was a trigger-happy shithead that completely threw that option away. The fact that he didn't quit prior to that moment, and the fact that he tolerated Rorschach, who also made it a point to murder people, for as long as he did, I think he'd be okay with Punisher, who isn't a complete scumbag like Comedian, and actually has a sense of hygiene and sense of personal space, unlike Rorschach.

              Those rioters got what they deserved.
