* In ''{{Comicbook/Watchmen}}'', Dr. Manhattan near omniscience causes him to become disinterested in human experiences like life and death. When he hears about an old friend's death, he says "A live body and a dead body contain the same number of particles. Structurally, there's no discernible difference.
