*clap clap clap*
Yeah, I think I've read a fair amount of the *true* 'unbreakable' soldiers are just plain sociopaths. Can't be traumatized if you lack the wiring to BE traumatized. That's not a great thing once they're returned to the civilian population with knowledge of how to kill...

And that's why I say DC is a crapsack world. Villains can act with impunity because they know they'll always make it back. They're not Karma Houdini, they're Karma Wolverines. No matter how much you knock them down, they just keep regenerating...

Rorschach is much too long-winded, I admit. I also think he's kinda OOC.
Oh well, onwards to see how many chapters of Gotham-purging action remain before it gets boring...
| Right What Is Wrong chapter 12 . 9/15
DC is equally crapsack. We just see what it looks like after the 'heroes' are done cleaning up and all the nasty bad men are put away.
Joker's probably killed some six-year-olds. He's a mass murderer - I'm sure he doesn't carefully ensure no children or infants are ever caught in the situations he sets up. It just doesn't get reported because that would be too ~controversial~.

I'm surprised Rorschach didn't just get mistaken for a new rising villain, actually. As you point out, all that he does happens a lot in Gotham. The only difference is that he's targeting the usual perpetrators.

Ah, come on. It's not that bad. Bruce is the one who hoards all sorts of bizarre stuff 'because he might need it someday'. It's just because of comicbook logic that it ACTUALLY comes in handy rather than being his weird genderflipped equivalent of accumulating a bajillion pairs of shoes.
'But, Master Bruce, you haven't used the Kryptonian reverse-polarity antimatter death ray (activated only if Superman sneezes on the far side of the moon during a planetary alignment while Wonder Woman is simultaneously doing the samba in Australia during election season) in TEN YEARS now! Why do you insist on keeping it prominently displayed-'
'I *NEED* IT, ALFRED. I NEEEED IT.'

Meanwhile Batman is going through his horrified 'ewwww, Mom and Dad had SEX?' stage in his thirties...
| Right What Is Wrong chapter 6 . 9/15
Heh. I'm surprised Rorschach, as long as he's misreading the situation based on what's publicly known, didn't latch on to a decadent playboy taking in two orphaned boys. That's the classic "WTF is going on in there?" misinterpretation...
| Right What Is Wrong chapter 5 . 9/15
Ah yes, the berserker trance. I'm kinda surprised Rorschach can outdo 'bestial' enemies on that front, but he is, unlike them, smart enough to use tools.
| Right What Is Wrong chapter 4 . 9/15
I agree with reviews that say he should be terser, but it's hard to write like that. Excuse me.
Agree with reviews saying should be terser. Hard to write such.
Hahaha. Someone transported into DC canon without any context would indeed be this baffled...
| Right What Is Wrong chapter 3 . 9/15
Roxy, you're half right, but your name's not Selina Kyle.
Of COURSE crime rates are reacting oddly now that Gotham has an actual death penalty...
Mind, I don't think the death penalty is entirely necessary IRL, but in GOTHAM, where all the prisons might as well install revolving doors in the cells? Hm...
| Right What Is Wrong chapter 2 . 9/15
And nothing of value was lost.
...except that we can't have Dark Knight Returns with a dead Joker. Bother. Okay, that's the only scrap of value the man ever had...
| Right What Is Wrong chapter 1 . 9/15
Read reviews. Seems Rorschach is OP and glorified...
...hahaha, DC universe deserves it. This is a place in which sadistic mass murderers get shunted through a perpetual cycle of imprisonment-escape-imprisonment with the "heroes" doing f-all to stop it. His attitude would be a breath of fresh air.
| Maximara chapter 93 . 9/10
There was some good potential with the idea but the crossovers got out of hand real fast. It didn't help with the Deus Ex Machina (or rather Deus Ex Manhattan) who served no other purpose then to remove some of the most powerful beings in DC from the equation.
Never mind there are beings that would have smeared Rorschach and Dr Manhattan if they set their minds to it. The Time Trapper immediately comes to mind and given Crossover Earth is back (assuming it was gone to begin with) there are such beings as Mad Jim Jaspers and Molecule Man to add to the admittedly short list.
The Time Trapper, while beatable, is not truly killable as he (or rather it) is a self aware alternate timeline. More over it the Trapper got pissed off enough he could create another pocket universe and create alternate versions of the Watchmen if he so wanted.
If that wasn't enough there is Earth 4 where Watchmen like Charlton characters exist. The Question there is, if possible, worst then Rorschach. He force feeds a drug dealer Blue Beetle (Night Owl II) caught and handcuffed to a basketball pole heroin and while ghe guy is dying he tries to figure out what is the best phrase to put on his calling card.

I couldn't possibly have your permission to rewrite this on my own image could I?
