George Gordon Battle Liddy (born November 30, 1930), known as G. Gordon Liddy, is a former government operative of Richard Nixon.
In 1985, when Doctor Manhattan left for Mars, G. Gordon Liddy was present in the secret headquarters projecting the next moves of the Cold War. In the simulation, he noticed that New York, Baltimore, Boston and Washington, D.C. would be gone by the Soviet missiles.
When DEFCON 2 was announced later, he was seen with Henry Kissinger in NORAD waiting for Richard Nixon, and asked how is Pat Nixon. He supported the "mad bomber" tactic as analyses showed good percentage in first strike.
At some point after 1985, Liddy became a member of the United States Supreme Court.
- Alan Moore has stated that the character of The Comedian was based in a large part on G. Gordon Liddy.
