In Watchmen we are introduced to many interesting characters with different morals and beliefs. The fan favourite Rorschach is a moral extremist, meaning he only sees actions in terms of good and evil, where evil must always be punished. I think this led to his eventual death at the hands of Dr. Manhattan. His mask is the perfect analogy for his morals, shifting patterns of black and white, always changing and shifting, yet never mixing into gray. The plot of Watchmen, and, indeed, most of the actions of humans throughout history and around the world, deal with these gray areas. Rorschach's inability to see these areas are, I think, what causes his falling out with his friends and partners, as well as the police authorities. His morals concerning good and evil, devoid of context and/or justification, is the cause of much questioning and conflict in Watchmen.
I believe in the necessity of silver, continuing with the analogy of black and white and the grays. Whilst actions may be considered good or evil, they still should shine brightly as a beacon to those living in the shadows of truly evil people and their actions.
Now, while our friend Rory isn't the only masked hero on the block, I want to here some other people's opinions of both Rorschach and other characters, hero, villain, or otherwise, in Watchmen, or anywhere else, maybe even your own morals or your thoughts on the moral choices made in Watchmen.
So, basically, lets talk about human morals.
