what by NektannNeightyFour
what
Apparently, I'm sociable!

But why do I need to add someone to my friends list in order to watch them? I can't technically unfriend them, because they might have good art!
Loading...
In 2009, the Watchmen movie, directed by Zack Snyder, was released. I don't remember the date when I researched the movie. I knew how it ended.

But I didn't know how it went.

A few weeks ago, I rented the entire limited series from the library, all 12 issues of grim darkness collected into a well-proportioned graphic novel. Now, I'm only two-thirds into the book, but know I understand why people loved the comic. Well, not love; but there is something enthralling about such a bitter comic series, that examines superheroes through the darkest of lenses. Marvel and DC have always played with the idea about superheroes influencing the world around them in a realistic way; few are as grim or powerful as Watchmen, however.

The story takes place in an alternate timeline, where superheroes have heavily influenced the 20th century; especially with the all-powerful Dr. Manhattan, who seems to take the place of Superman. Sadly, there aren't as many, more outrageous heroes like Martian Manhunter or Spiderman, though that's not important. Actually, most of them wouldn't be considered heroes. Most of the 'heroes' are flawed, broken people; the nicest guy is Nite Owl II, but without crime-fighting, he's a neurotic loser.

The story is the perfect way to analyze the subject of the impact of superheroes on the larger world. Rorschach's darkness revealed; Dr. Manhattan experiencing every moment he ever lived and ever lived; Silk Spectre and Nite Owl's eventual return to crime-fighting; all of these moments, these glimpses into the human condition... I know why people like Watchmen

Note to self, though: I need to binge on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Adventure Time after finishing this. Too much darkness is bad for you.

Hi, I am Teddy. Once you read this you
cannot get out. Finish reading this
until it is done! As I said, I am
Teddy. I am 7 years old. I have no eyes
and blood all over my face. I am dead.
If you don't send this to at least 12
people I will come to your house at
midnight and I'll hide under your bed.
When you're asleep, I'll kill you.
Don't believe me?"no"
Case 1:
Patty Buckles
Got this e-mail. She doesn't believe
in chain letters. Well, Foolish Patty.
She was sleeping when her TV started
flickering on and off. Now she's not
with us anymore. Ha ha patty, Ha ha!
You don't want to be like Patty, do
you?
Case 2:
George M. Simon
Hates chain mail, but he didn't want
to die that night. He sent it to 4
people. Not good enough George. Now,
George is in a coma, we don't know if
he'll ever wake up. Ha ha George, Ha
ha! Now, do you want to be like George?
Case 3:
Valarie Tyler
She got this letter. Another chain
letter she thought. Only had 7 people
to
send to. Well, That night when she was
having a shower she saw bloody Mary
in the mirror. It was the BIGGEST
fright of her life. Valarie is scarred
for
life.
Case 4:
Derek Minse
This is the final case I'll tell you
about. Well, Derek was a smart person.
He sent it to 12 people. Later that
day, he found a $100.00 bill on the
ground. He was premoted to head
officer at his job and his girlfriend
said
yes to his purposal. Now, Katie and
him are living happily ever after.The
have 2 beautiful children.
Send this to at least 12 people or
you'll face the consequences.
0 people- You will die tonight
1-6 people- you will be injured
7-11 people- you will get the biggest
fright of your life
12 and over- you are safe and
