Was That A DC Watchmen Reference In The Fall And Rise Of Captain Atom #1?

You might expect a reference or two to Watchmen in the new Fall And Rise Of Captain Atom book, especially as Dr Manhattan was based on Captain Atom, and Captain Atom was then recreated to be more like Dr Manhattan. Indeed, Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely created a Multiverse world that uses the Charlton characters in increasingly Watchmen ways, which DC seems to have currently forgotten about.

Because the actual Watchmen characters appear to have been invading the DC Universe, and Bleeding Cool has been watching out for signs.

And Fall #1 to the list?
