Sorry if this already exists. I originally posted it in the '93 thread but it didn't really fit. So...I just discovered that the protagonist of "The man who laughs" is the inspiration of a supervillain in DC comics. I haven't seen anything of DC but am very curious how they managed to work the inspiration of a Hugo protagonist into a supervillain.
As for '93, it's said that the novel has inspired Ayn Rand's writing. God why? They differ greatly in both philosophy and writing style. And I really can't accept the fact that Ayn Rand is a Hugo fan because she's one of my least favorite writers.
Apparently inspiration works in a weird way.
So does anyone know about other works inspired by Hugo? How do you like them?
