Thinking in extremes, say the line up rose to twenty cards and you play The Owl Ship as an example; "Destroy all non-hero cards in the line up and then replace them." As the text reads you would replace all twenty which seems a little to op. Was wondering, are you only supposed to replace the initial line up of only five cards or indeed every card that was in the line up?

Why wouldn't you destroy all of them? That is what the card does. It's not often you're going to get a line-up that big, but if it should then cards like Owl Ship becoming more potent is just a natural consequence of that. In a game like Watchmen (or Crisis mode) it's the responsibility of the players to stop the line-up getting that big so that cards like Owl Ship or Crises like Draining the Emotional Spectrum can't just mill you out.

All twenty. Line-Up control is very important in Crisis-like games, which is what I consider the Watchmen pack to be.

You replace every card destroyed, not just up to 5. You really shouldn't let the line-up get that large if one of those cards has already come up.
