Doctor Manhattan, often shortened to Dr. Manhattan, is a fictional character who appears in comics published by DC Comics. He debuted in the graphic novel limited series Watchmen, published in 1986 and 1987. Doctor Manhattan was created by writer Alan Moore with artist Dave Gibbons.
The Watchmen series has been noted for addressing metaphysical issues and questions, Doctor Manhattan being the primary exponent. He is often used as an example of a post-human god. Reception towards the character is positive and he has appeared and has been mentioned in various forms of media. Doctor Manhattan later appeared in the Before Watchmen comic book prequel, with his own individual issue miniseries.
In 2016, as part of DC Comics' Rebirth campaign, Manhattan became a major antagonist: a factor that removed 10 years of history from DC characters following the Flashpoint event, creating The New 52 timeline in the process. His status as the major antagonist is confirmed by Geoff Johns in July 2017. Manhattan was later confirmed as a major character in Doomsday Clock. (by Wikipedia for quick knowledge only)
In 1959, in an accident that was certainly unplanned and just as certainly unrepeatable, a young American man was completely disintegrated, at least in a physical sense. Despite the absence of a body, a form of electromagnetic pattern resembling consciousness survived, and was able, in time, to rebuild an approximation of the body it had lost.
This respect thread is going to be a collaboration of both his Watchman/DC Multiverse appearances and it will help debunk the "Featless" Doctor Manhattan for those so ignorant of his power and character purpose so enjoy this Dr.Manhattan Respect Thread!
NOTE: THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE THE MOVIE VERSION JUST THE COMICS!
Dr.Manhattan Powers Consist of Reality, Time, Space, Matter, and Energy, Quantum Manipulation these scales up to Universal to even Multiversal levels of power and to be more specific to help understand this being's tremendous power.
Powers And Abilities
Size Manipulation, Near-Invulnerability, Cosmic Strength, Complete control/awareness of atomic/subatomic particles, Omnipresence (Simultaneously exist in all places at once and he has shown to do this in past, present, and future time eras), Immortality: Can reconstruct himself on a molecular level, doesn't need to sleep,eat,drink, and or breath, and he is ageless and has immunity to diseases and exist as long as all things exist,Omnikinetic (All Kinetic Abilities, All Manipulation Powers, All Telekinetic Powers and Telekinesis based powers), Teleportation, Flight, Can see the past, present, and future simultaneously, Phasing, transmutation, cloning (of himself), disintegration, force field creation, can create life, and can reverse death, reality-warping of such high levels he warped reality in the DC Universe and re-created the metaverse, and then has such time manipulation powers that he straight up erase/stole the last 10 years of the DC Universe creating the New 52 himself.
Doctor Manhattan is so powerful that even Mister Mxyzptlk himself acknowledges and is aware that Jonathan Osterman aka Dr.Manhattan is more powerful than him, which is also shown when Doctor Manhattan himself killed the godlike Pandora (aka also known as Lilith) with a single hit, where Pandora alternate versions could one-shot the Multiverse if they wanted to.
Blows the Head off a Thug
Uses his Size Alternating Power to make Vietnam Soldiers Submit
Dr.Manhattan Kills Rorschach
Recreates his Body on a Sub-Atomic Level Three Times
Other Known Feats:
Doctor Manhattan Kills Pandora
Note: Pandora is stated/implied/shown to be a more Multiversal threat than what most would see as she tanked blows from the Near-Omnipotent Spectre himself.
Doctor Manhattan stated to be Stronger than Mr.Mxyzptlk himself
Note: People will argue about "Feats" but forget Mr.Mxyzptlk himself can't do anything against a being of higher dimensionality than he is so even if Mr.Mxy can destroy a multiverse it won't highly do nothing to someone who is 10-Dimensional against his 5-Dimensional power.
Matter Manipulation Power
Dr.Manhattan disassembles a Gun
Simanuously Existing in Multiple Locations Without Moving
Reality Warping+Metaverse Recreation
Doctor Manhattan on-panel destroyed and recreated the universe which in affect he receated the Metaverse...the fundamentals of everything from timelines to realities (universes) and all things to do with shifting and making the Multiverse itself.
The only real weakness of Dr.Manhattan is Tachyon which disrupts his vision of seeing through time as it was explained here:
Doctor Manhattan is the quantum observer at the center of infinite realities where there is an infinite amount of possibilities and he can choose the one he wants which better suits him, so he bends and warps reality and probabilities/possibilities to his very will his own whim, It's almost impossible to beat him since out of infinite possible outcomes in a battle he can choose the one where he wins and make it the main reality indefinitely and even if by chance you manage to defeat him once he can just choose one or ones where he wins.
So yes he doesn't create universes out of pure raw energy or magic like world forger or Perpetua, he does it in a different way. Since he's the quantum being when he makes an action or decision infinite possible realities are created and he can see all of the past, present, and future outcomes, So since his decisions does that let's say he decides to throw a punch or an energy blast then in that instant infinite possibilities are created and some will be where the punch never connected and some will be where he threw the punch or energy blast and it connected so he can take that one and make it the main reality on a whim.
Now you are wondering how do I and others know this?.... He explained it himself.....
This is also explained in the main DC Comic Multiverse that quantum reality is a factor to these universes.....
then again Dr.Manhattan admits he recreated the said Metaverse to his liking.....yes he "recreated" not changed it:
So no to those making false claims of Dr.Manhattan being a "Time Traveler" or just that he is "Changing Time" but in actuality, he is creating whole new universes which bend to his very whim....and he exists in them all and has the to destroy them if he surely wishes to.
