I don't see why not. I'm not familiar with your examples, but it is
possible to get inspired by multiple characters to create a new one, and I don't see any reason why not to.
And that's another reason why we need to focus on the fact that the inspiration
is there, not that they are perfectly the same. For exampe House
is a very obvious Holmes expy, and that shouldn't be ignored just because he also happens to be a Doctor Jerk
. The inspiration is there, even if the writers played with it, that is almost an expectation of a Expy
, that is what makes it different from Captain Ersatz
And that's also not how Composite Character
works either. That is a trope for when the two original characters should
, by all rights, appear in an adaptation or sequel, in the same setting
, but they are written out and replaced by one new. The only way Jet Dream
could be a Composite Character
of them, would be if it would take place in a Bond/Blackhawk crossover universe, where you could expect
Blackhawk and Pussy Galore to show up, and you would get her instead of them.
