** His depiction of Literature/JamesBond (at least, the literary version) isn't exactly flattering either, although it is more faithful to Fleming's original depiction. He does have Allan Quatermain basically point out that he's a very poor showing for the 'British adventure hero' in such a way that clearly suggests that Moore isn't exactly a fan.

* ChekhovsSkill: Hyde's thermal vision. This being [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Hyde]], he's smart enough not to tell Griffin about it, knowing that it might come in handy sometime.
