Great to see a new Heroes episode tonight, but did anyone else get the huge Watchmen vibe during Nathan and Linderman’s conversation?  Showing influences by giving nods to prior art is cool, but the plot Linderman revealed seemed to me to cross well into “imitation” territory.

I find it interesting that the Heroes wiki doesn’t currently have any references to “watchmen“.  Here’s the earliest reference I could easily find in Google to someone that raises the same question.  And here’s an article that would have spoiled it for me had I been looking for spoilers before watching this week’s episode.
