Douglas Roth is a journalist from Nova Express.
Roth was the first to observe a connection between the cancers of Wally Weaver, Janey Slater and Moloch with Doctor Manhattan. After an interview with Slater, Roth attempted to make him speak about these connections during Benny Anger's live TV show but was teleported to the parking lot outside of the studio.
Responding in New Frontiersman's attacks against him and his magazine, Roth appeared on TV and described NF's appeals to costumed adventurers as "attempting to graft an acceptable face onto glorified Klan-style brutality". As for the accusations that Nova Express is funded by communists, Roth responded that his magazine is funded by an American delivery company.
The Douglas Roth School for Media and Popular Culture at New Columbia University was named in his honor.
