[GameDesign?]Managing multiple enemies


I just have a little question about game design. I have one enemy movieClip and one class for that enemy. What would be the best way to copy this enemy. Making a lot of class instances?
Have enemies with instance names like “enemy1” “enemy2” etc. or will it work to just copy the enemy movieClip??

Thanks in advance. You guys here are all awsome!:smiley:
