    Inspired and Knock off are two different things. Dr. Manhattan was inspired by Capton Atom, but would hardly be called a knock off.

    Bloodshot, on the other hand, was just Punisher meets Wolverine, but he was a creation of post-unity Valiant.

    And other than being a duo, I see no similarities between A&A and Batman & Robin.

    I have no doubt about the quality of the book based on the creative team. Valiant will succeed if they can keep their books on schedule & keep the creative teams on the books for at least 12 issues.
