He start a superhero franchise (action figures, animated series, etc.) based on his former alter ego. He had a genetically altered lynx for a pet. He is based on Peter Cannon, Thunderbolt.
- Silk Spectre II- Laurie Jespeczyk was the daughter of her predecessor of that name. She was a hero for 10 years until vigilantes were banned. She started to date Doctor Manhattan. When Doc went to Mars, she got kicked out of her government-funded home and moved in with Nite-Owl II. Later, she joined Doc on Mars.
- Doctor Manhattan- Doctor Jonathan Osterman was transformed into a blue-skin being able to control molecules by an "Intrinsic Field Subtractor"-related accident. He started to become "less human" (which bugged his girlfriend Laurie) to the point he moved to Mars. He is based on Captain Atom.
- Nite-Owl II- Daniel Dreiberg is a retired hero that worshiped the first Nite-Owl. He has owl-theme gadgets and a owl ship that he never uses any more. He is the only member of the "Crimebusters" to not have revealed his alter ego. He is based on Ted Kord (a.k.a Blue Bettle II). However, at first look, he seems to based on Batman.
- The Comedian (sitting)- Edward Morgan Blake began his crime-fighting career as a teen in the 1930s. He thinks humans are naturally savage, so he "parodies" it. He became a government agent (along with Doctor Manhattan). He died at the beginning of the series, but is constantly seen in flashbacks. He is based on Peacemaker, but has elements of Nick Fury.
- Rorschach- Walter Joseph Kovacs was the victim of an abusive mother. After being in a boy's home, he became an unskillful tailor. He kept a rejected fabric, that had changing Rorschach-like patterns on it. After reading about the death of Kitty Genovese, he decided to fight crime, which ultimately leads to him becoming homicidal towards criminals. He spends most of the series solving the death of the Comedian, before being sent to jail for murder (he was framed). He eventually is freed by Nite-Owl. He is based of the Question, but he has been compared to Mr. A.
