The Silk Spectre
Real name: Laurie Juspeczyk
What we know from "Watchmen": As a teen, Laurie was pushed into the superhero lifestyle by her overbearing mother, the original Silk Spectre, Sally Jupiter. Laurie gladly accepted the early retirement forced on her and the other vigilantes by a 1977 congressional act, but has since grown bored living with Dr. Manhattan, who is growing more and more distant from her.
What we might see in "Before Watchmen": Her childhood relationships to her famous mother, her distant step-father and the family's heroic -- and largely disturbed -- friends.
