The Manhattan Project was a short story that took place during The Clone Saga. Ozymandias attempted to create a Dr. Manhattan of his very own. Using the technology in the Hall of Souls, he attempted to clone Jon. Due to some complications in the process, the being was green and female. Adrian nicknamed her Lady Manhattan. Veidt proceeded to teach her all he knew and taught her how to use her powers. As her training went on, Adrian began to fall in love with Lady Manhattan. He tried to express his love for her but she didn't accept it and she escaped into space. The story ended with Lady Manhattan creating a fortress on Venus. Many fans believe that this story was non-canon because Veidt's crush on Lady Manhattan was considered out of character.
