** Before Watchmen confirms he's half-Jewish on his mother's side, while his father was Christian.



* AmbiguouslyBi: ''Before Watchmen'' shows him in an sexual and romantic relationship with a woman and implies another, which means he is either this or straight.

* {{Foil}}: To Rorschach. Both are ultimately unstable {{Ubermensch}} who are unflinching in doing what they think is right, no matter what the cost. They just play it in very different ways.

A veteran 'hero' who was vicious even when young, and has since become a full-blown hired gun on government payroll. Dies on the first page, though we only later find out why.

* JerkassHasAPoint: His major trademark. Comedian is a complete asshole, but much of the things he says to antagonize others often have some--or much--truth to it. For example, he was one of the first to notice Dr. Manhattan's humanity beginning to falter when Manhattan didn't even try to stop him from killing a woman pregnant with his child. Even Ozymandias admited that his analysis about the futility of the masked vigilantes to resolve the real problems of the world was right.

Possibly the first costumed superhero. Little is known about him, save that he was extremely violent and brutal, and a supporter of TheKlan and Nazis. Disappeared in 1955, possibly at the hands of The Comedian.

* AntiHero: Vicious, cruel, and a Nazi supporter. Only the fact this his rage is directed at criminals keeps him on the "hero" side.

* DisproportionateRetribution: One theory of his death put forward by Ozymandias. When Hooded Justice disappeared, The Comedian was charged by the government to track him down, but failed to do so. Ozymandias suggests that the Comedian actually succeeded, but instead of bringing him in, killed him in cold blood and reported failure. All as payback for Hooded Justice stopping his attempted rape of Silk Spectre.
