That preview really delivers on content! I plan on closely reading the TPB before the movie.

Per wiki: Citing Watchmen as the point where the comic book medium "came of age," Iain Thomson wrote in his essay "Deconstructing the Hero" that the story accomplished this by "developing its heroes precisely in order to deconstruct the very idea of the hero and so encouraging us to reflect upon its significance from the many different angles of the shards left lying on the ground".


Yet. . .why would we want to do that, when as fans we (at least used to) go to the heroes as an escape to reflect on such things as hope, truth, justice, and courage?

Thomson stated that the heroes in Watchmen almost all share a nihilistic outlook, and that Moore presents this outlook "as the simple, unvarnished truth" to "deconstruct the would-be hero's ultimate motivation, namely, to provide a secular salvation and so attain a mortal immortality".


That's a heavy and one-sided philosophical worldview that I'm not sure everyone wants to buy into once they see the fine print.

I've been reading this book called, "The Consequences of Ideas" (a primer really) and even though I plan to pay full ticket price for this movie, I am awfully suspicious that this is merely the church of absurdism and the "will to power" wrapped up in CGI effects. The book I referred to would instantly recognize and take issue with Moore's anti-heroes (p.169-171).

He wrote that the story "develops its heroes precisely in order to ask us if we would not in fact be better off without heroes".


This would then be the writer cutting off his nose to spite his face. However, the irony of ironies is that after 20 years, it's now a major motion picture. Laughing So then why give such a sermon on the one hand, while taking my money on the other? Confused

Thomson added that the story's deconstruction of the hero concept "suggests that perhaps the time for heroes has passed", which he feels distinguishes "this postmodern work" from the deconstructions of the hero in the existentialism movement.


Not just any existentialism, but rather the hard stuff right up front.

If the time for heroes has passed, then why the excitement in the fan community?
