    I think it makes sense:

    Someone like Stefan Molyneux says he is a libertarian and promotes race ''science''. A lot of libertarians have become alt-right, so I can totally see Rorschach being co-opted by white supremacists. Rorschach could be horrified by such a development, but I think this turn is totally believable.

For reasons.

    A couple YT reviews have been weirdly obtuse about the show tackling race. White fragility is active even in people outside the US.

    An interview with Damon Lindelof about the show. My favorite bit:

    So there’s no way to end up with a better movie than the one Zack Snyder made, in my opinion.

    Overall, as according to my review, I liked last night's episode of Watchmen over the premiere...if only because of Adrian Veidt's play about Doctor Manhattan. Oh my gosh, that was hysterical. Dark, but hysterical all the same.

    You mean Topher? I thought he was the son of her partner, killed on White Night.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Since he is Hooded Justice. I figure the Government or Nite Owl. He said he has friends in high places.

    I just watched the 2nd episode...who are we supposed to be rooting for??? So far i am on team squid.
    In the real world i would be BOTH pro registration and Pro mutant rights. Xavier and Trask were both right.

    Did I miss something? Hooded Justice was a white guy who was a member of the KKK. He was implied to be gay and assassinated by Comedian.

    They seem to be pointing to it being Will.

    That possibility is something that only a certain subset of comic book readers will be aware of, no?

    If you've only read the "Classic Coke" series(and are aiming the show at folks who might have done the same), is there any reason that you couldn't just ignore the corner of things that you mentioned?

    Nah not Topher the boy who escaped Black Wall Street. I know now he turned out to be Knight's grandfather But I was thinking he turned out to be a superhero. Maybe we'll find out which one exactly next episode.
