Who Watches the Watchmen? Apparently the people who write Heroes.

At a panel last weekend a major plot
point was revealed about the NBC show Heroes
(it goes without saying - contains spoilers). To many comic book readers this had more than a familiar similarity to the ending of the widely revered comic book series Watchmen
. Stories and themes are repeated throughout history in many mediums, but when is it a unique take, when is it a a homage and when is it theft? And when the medium that is lifted from is a less respected one such as comic books, does that make it more palatable?
