I didn’t know this either. I even read the comic after watching the movie. Thanks for the info

idk i thought his hatred of women was really obvious? it shows through in most of his interactions with women but especially the scene where he’s making his mask

the only people he likes are children

like seriously how WOULDN’T rorschach be a hero to terrible male nerds

- he hates women

- people hate him

- he’s clever

- he has a black & white view of justice and morality

- he views himself as the arbiter of justice

- he is very very good at being…

i thought alan moore was going for “The Question” and then was told to change it

So, i read this a while ago off of wikipedia and it does not have a listed resource, so take it with a grain of salt…

But it says “RorschachAlan Moore's comic book series Watchmen was originally planned to use a number of Charlton Comics characters, including the Question. When DC, the owner of the characters, found out that he intended to kill the Question, along with a number of the other characters, he was asked to make new characters. The Question became Rorschach.”

So, we’re both right, i’d suppose.  He originally wanted to use The Question, but upon hearing ‘no’ constructed Rorschach as a critique of Batman?

well yes that’s true too but i don’t think it has much to do with the fact that rorschach is supposed to be a “real life” batman

they can both be true

- he is very very good at being violent & perpetrates violence against people he feels deserve it (kind of light yagami-esque but light takes it to a higher extreme)

- he’s a manchild

It should also be noted that this is how Batman is portrayed most of the time.

The only difference is that Batman is glorified in his comics

yeah lol and that’s what alan moore was going for

he writes a journal that’s equal parts impressive vocabulary and creepy-ass rambling

and the only news source he trusts is a right-wing newspaper

a hero to us all

droil:

remember that time they made a watchmen movie and they tried to force prank/practical joke as a motif

somehow the movie succeeded in being even more violent than the book

don’t get me wrong, though, rorschach is a great character

and he’s a great example of what you shouldn’t idolize

and i won’t give out spoilers, but his black-and-white thinking does not work out well for him

he hates women??? D: didnt know/remember that one

yes he certainly does

he begrudgingly respects laurie b/c of her line of work but he HATES women

look at his monologue about how he made his mask and it’s very obvious

lanawhatever replied to your post: like seriously how WOULDN’T rorschach …

and he wears a fucking fedora doesn’t he?

ahahahha HE DOES

but b/c this was in the 80s instead he comes across as idolizing private eyes in like pulp crime dramas

just like people are idolizing him

that’s awful lol

alan moore brought this upon himself though because while he made rorschach really pathetic, he also made him pretty badass…

"I wanted to … make [Rorschach] as like, ‘this is what Batman would be in the real world’. But I have forgotten that actually to a lot of comic fans, ‘smelling’, ‘not having a girlfriend’, these are actually kind of heroic! So Rorschach became the most popular character in Watchmen. I made him to be a bad example. But I have people come up to me in the street and saying: ‘I AM Rorschach. That is MY story’. And I’d be thinking: ‘Yeah, great. Could you just, like, keep away from me, never come anywhere near me again as long as I live?’"
