Maybe Not Much Of A Hero

Reading watchmen, I’ve realized that there are a variety of protagonist and antagonist and Watchmen’s really conflicting. I grew up with comic heroes that have one straight line of morals and principles. Then I read Watchmen and my conflict comes from either disregarding every character with powers as nothing but self absorbed mutants to giving credit when they do something honorable. Growing up with Spider-Man and Batman and the popular hero stereotypes, it was surreal to read characters in Watchmen. This comic strip has definitely opened my eyes to the possibility that those with powers could choose to live ordinary lives without being pressured to do ‘heroic’ stuff. Really, from what I’ve observed, some characters’ has had something drastic happen to them and I can’t fault any character if they couldn’t overcome it or if they warp the experience into something not so morally right.
