This paper discusses the moral/philosophical arguments represented by Rorschach, The Comedian, Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias in Alan Moore and David Gibbons' "Watchmen." By citing specific examples from the text, this paper illuminates the intertextuality between "Watchmen's" major characters and the works of philosophers such as Sartre, Nietzsche and A.C. MacIntyre.
From the Paper:"Unlike the Comedian, Rorschach does find meaning through moral absolutism. Moral absolutism is a deontological moral philosophy that holds that moral rules are universal and absolute (McConnell, 1981, p. 287). Rorschach then proceeds to enforce these absolute moral rules in a way that is not necessarily consistent with "common morality.""
