Nite Owl is considered as one of the vigilante superheroes in The Watchmen movie.
Hollis Mason used to be a New York cop in 1938 before he got inspired by the heroic deeds of a vigilante group led by someone who goes by the name of Hooded Justice. A year later, Mason decided to take on a superhero costume himself and became known as Nite Owl.
Although he has no real powers, Nite Owl was able to use his wit, experience, acquired skills, and knowledge as a former law enforcer to be an effective crime fighter.
He went on to become a member of the masked heroes league called the Minutemen and was an integral part in fighting off the shady characters called Axis operatives during the Second World War.
After his retirement from crime fighting, Mason went on to open an auto shop and wrote a book called "Under the Hood", detailing his past life as a superhero.
Mason's Nite Owl character was well-liked by his vigilante colleagues and in his own person he was a temperate being with the voice of reason devoid of any issues which could damage his relationship with his fellow heroes.
Mason was actually the original Nite Owl prior to Daniel Dreiberg taking the name Nite Owl II which happened after Mason's retirement from vigilante work in 1962. Dreiberg's character was partly to blame for Mason's death when he and Silk Spectre II broke Rorscach out of prison.
This incident enraged the Knot-Tops group, another hero group headed by Derf. In a case of mistaken identity, they proceeded to Mason's place thinking that he was the "Nite Owl" who initiated the prison escape. But instead of just confronting him, the group beat him up instead with Derf delivering the death blow to the decorated and retired superhero by using a statue which was given to Mason as a token of appreciation for his service to the community.
The Nite Owl Watchmen Figure stands approx. 6.25-inches in height with multiple points of articulation and is packaged in a collector friendly 4-color window box.
AKA Adrian Veidt is known to be the world's most intellectual man. The son of wealthy German immigrants, he inherited and then gave away his vast fortune in order to be free from inheritance and declares that he wants to build a fortune out of his own hard work.
His identity as a vigilante was inspired by the life of Alexander the Great and he trained himself to physical perfection in order to have the ability, strength and fighting skills to be a vigilante crime fighter.
After only operating as a vigilante for a few years, he decided to publicly reveal the himself and smartly built a successful financial empire on the wake of the popularity he gained.
He is thought to have been unaffected by his crime-fighting experiences and was presumed to still be determined to help and do good deeds without hiding behind his costume.
However, it s later revealed that it is he who is the man behind the conspiracy of eliminating all the hero vigilantes.
For what purpose?
Ah, for that you'll need to watch the movie, or read the comics…

The daughter of the Comedian Silk Spectre is fought crime for ten years before the Keen Act banned the vigilantes.
Unlike most of the other characters Silk Spectre wasn't based on a Charlton character but Alan Moore felt that the story needed a female character and so drawing inspiration from the Black Canary and Phantom Lady he created Silk Spectre.
Due to her relationship to Dr Manhattan she is kept on a retainer by the Government but after the Doctor leaves earth she is kicked off the Government base and all her privileges are rescinded but Doctor Manhattan returns and takes her to Mars.
