DC Universe: Watchmen – Janey Slater

Watchmen – Janey Slater

In the 1930s and 1940s a group of vigilantes called themselves the Minutemen and set out to ‘finish what the law couldn’t’. They started out as heros helping to catch criminals and to win World War II. Decades later, in the 1980s, the world hovers on the brink of nuclear war and there is a new generation of Watchmen but the glory days are over, the government has cracked down on their activities, and there is a conspiracy to kill and discredit them.

Janey Slater (Laura Mennell) was the was girlfriend of one of the original Minutemen, Jon Osterman. He was disintegrated when he was accidentally locked in the Intrinsic Field Test Chamber but returned as Dr Manhattan. Their relationship resumed but she aged while he did not. Worse because of her knowledge of Dr Manhatten she was recruited by Dimensional Developments and as a result of her work there as a physicist she developed cancer. When Dr Manhatten appears on a talk show she challenges him, blaming him for her cancer and revealing how it has ravaged her.

Meanwhile an older Sally Jupiter (Carla Gugino), the original Silk Spectre, she spends her time drinking margaritas in the afternoon and reminiscing about her old Minuteman days.
