maybe it is because there are really only 5 or six superheros?

That's true, at least in a Joseph Cambell sort of way, but Rorschach's ranting has more to his being based on the Question than his being a superhero of the same type as Batman.

Maybe it is because the last Miller I read was this

of course I my reading has been cape free since this came out (my tv viewing has not been go Paul Dini.) but I find for easy classification

Manhattan is Superman

Rorschach is A or the question (but really Batman hehe)

Silk is Wonder Woman

Nite Owl is the Blue Beatle

I don't have a really good peg on who Ozy is.

Huh. Suddenly, I'm seeing Frank Miller in a different light.

The Shadow/Doctor Strange/Doc Savage? He'll have directly based on a Charlton character, because they all were, but I don't know which.

But Wikipedia to the rescue

I remember that. I try to avoid anything he's written since Daredevil and Elektra.

Vaguely relevant
