So here is a question I always had from watching the Watchmen. If you read the comic you know that Ozymandias summoned a giant dead Cthulu-esque monster to take the blame for the destruction of New York City. However, I guess in the interest of making things easier for all the dumb consumers out there in the movie the made it so a bomb went off with Ozymandias simulating Dr. Manhattan’s power in each of the capital cities, causing Russia and America to band together against him.
The question I have is Dr. Manhattan has been working for America for decades and actually used his power to wreck the North Vietnamese. How is it the Russians didn’t even question the whole deal, or ask for some kind of accountability regarding Manhattan? Sorry, but from an actual nation building point of view dead alien Cthulu makes a lot more sense.
Still a great movie. This Dr. Manhattan image I found in Dave’s comic book movie collection. He only has a few from the Watchmen.
