I'll be honest. The Watchmen comic had me somewhat disappointed in the end. It's as if Alan Moore just sat down at his desk one day and thought..."Hey, I've got it! I'll scar the memory of everyone's childhood by Humanizing
the superhero genre!"
The only problem is, Alan Moore's writing from what I've read by him usually plays out something like this. "Rocks fall, hero dies, the world gets a reboot that cannot possibly last over ten years and will crumble into bloody anarchy or totalitarian rule.
The reason everyone's so charmed with the concept of superheros is that they can't fail. That's what makes them super.
And also? Seriously? Astronomical death counts = World Peace?
How messed up is That?
So, for everyone who was a bit bummed out by the Watchmen's ending....I offer the hero edition.
:EDIT: Props to
for teaching me (via observation) the angry face of doom.
