John F. Kennedy was the 35th President of the United States. He was assassinated in Dallas, Texas under suspicious circumstances on November 22, 1963. Kennedy had planned to gave a speech in Dallas in which he would refer to contemporary Americans being "the watchmen on the walls of world freedom."

Prior to Kennedy's death, Dr. Manhattan had foreseen the President's death but did not attempt to prevent it as he felt that it would be futile, as it has already happened in Dr. Manhattan's altered awareness of time. Adrian Veidt had tried to solve the assassination in which his investigation was strongly hinted that The Comedian and then-former Vice President Richard Nixon were involved in Kennedy's death.
