Watchmen Character Profiles: for Non-Comic Geeks

by Lambert Varias

Are you a movie buff? Then you’re probably cautiously excited about the upcoming Watchmen movie. Cautiously, because whenever you start to wonder about the movie a horde of Cheetos-smelling chubby geeks with 90s fashion sensibilities immediately surrounds you, desperate to drop knowledge on anyone who’s not into comics and blather on about the Keene Act and the Black Freighter and the first Nite Owl and how the panels on the page of one issue are symmetrical or finish in reverse order or how Rorschach looks like –

Since you’re a geek yourself, only another sort of geek, you can’t give these comic fiends a good ol’ shut the hell up punch. So go do what you do best: acquire knowledge.  You want to arm yourself with just enough knowledge so you can appreciate the movie without having to ask a person who will not ever, ever never ever shut up once he starts talking.

As always the Internet can help. Just head-on to Rotten Tomatoes and read their concise and well written character profiles. You’ll get to know the important info about the heroes of Watchmen – their real names, history, inspiration – as well as tidbits about the villains (including former US president Nixon). Of course you can always check out the official site:

The upside of the Warner Bros. site is that it’s flashy and has audio and video clips as well as goodies like wallpapers, but if you’re looking for information then the Rotten Tomatoes profiles are much easier to read.

So go arm yourself! You know what, you still have time. Go buy the book. And a bag of Cheetos. And a six-pack of Yoo-hoos.
