Heroes and Amber

 Is it just me, or is the Petrelli family looking a lot like the family of Oberon of Amber? Inbred, manipulative (or manipulated) people with links to everyone else? Oh, and they’re effectively gods to normal people.

 
Just watched "I am Become Death" (Destroyer of Worlds), and I was really struck by the resemblance to the characters of Roger Zelazny’s Nine Princes in Amber… which is one of my favourite books.
