Is "Ultra Comics" from Grant Morrison's "Multiversity" Miracleman? Making DC its Own Villain?

After reading the graphic novel, I was convinced that Ultra Comics is supposed to represent the character Marvelman/Miracleman made famous by Alan Moore though others including Neil Gaiman have penned him, so I Googled the topic, but I can not find any discussion. Am I the only one who sees obvious similarities between the character designs of Ultra Comics and Miracleman? Ultra Comics even has the lightening bolt of Captain Marvel/Shazam of the DC universe, and as all fans of Miracleman know, the original Marvelman had to change its name due to a suit filed by DC, then change again to get Marvel off its back and then went into limbo due to Todd McFarlane---make the Gentry (the villain if you believe in such things as villains) of the DC title, "The Multiversity" the Gentry the world's comic book super giants, including DC, Marvel and Todd McFarland.
