A few days ago I wrote about the upcoming movie adaptation of the graphic novel, Watchmen.
The other day a viral video of an archived news broadcast about the sole superhuman character in Watchmen, Dr. Manhattan. The video is exceptionally well-done; which gives me more hope that the movie will be good. Have a look for yourself:
One key piece of the allure of Watchmen that I meant to write about, and just forgot to include in my first post is the concept of superhero psychology. Allan Moore delves into how psychologically screwed-up one would have to be to dress in a costume and run around a city fighting criminals. He also examines how isolated a real superhuman living among normal people would be.
Moore did something truly special when he took a look at superheroes from a not-so-altruistic perspective.
