can anyone shed light on how Laurie can fall in love with Dr. Manhattan? i mean seriously, i know love is skin deep, but the guy is BLUE in colour (or color to you americans ;) )!

My theory is why Laurie is in a relationship with Dr. Manhattan is because he can change the size of his.......... :D

in all seriousness, what's your take on it?

She flirted with him at that party. She was so young. Osterman was probably concered with what pheromone mixture was in the air at the time. Janey reacted strongly and her relationship with him changed from that moment.

Plus Laurie was a budding vigilante. Already tattered, emotionally.

And hey, who wouldn't drool over Osterman's visage. The guy has it*.








*I'm a happily married man! :mrgreen:

But if you had a complicated hang-up about girls, and that a "blue" Scarlett was so off the wall that you'd drop any preconceived attitude toward her and just stare at her perfectly formed torso, (and she gazed back at yours) I'm sure you'd have trouble sleeping that night alone, too. ;)

Jon knew it was happening ahead of time. Laurie admitted she was attracted to his buffness. That and only being sixteen - and all the emotional inexperience that goes with it. Jon was big, powerful, and exotic.

I'm also guessing a girl that had no father, and a stepfather that was constantly immasculated, she was attracted to Jon's "perfection" and "power." Almost in the same way she flirts a bit with her father at the failed Crimebusters meeting. At that moment, The Comedian was being a macho bad-ass, and she got into it. Laurie needs a "protector" and she's attaracted to the men who can protect her. These protection issues could have also been a factor in her acceptance of her mother's push for her to train to become a masked hero.

There's also the matter of "What would that be like?" Understandable, I'm sure.

Also, I think that if Laurie had a better idea what happened to Janey Slater, she may have had second thoughts. Poor Janey, getting older and less active while Jon is still -- and will always be -- in his prime.

Laurie didn't know what Jon's relationship with Janey was like. She didn't really know anything about Jon. But as time went on and she learned more about Jon and how his mind works, she grew further from him. So, I would conclude that Laurie was attracted to Jon simply because of our natural attraction to anything new and unknown.

As a girl I thought that was a bit of a stretch at first, I mean...He's BLUE!

But some women love power.

Rebecca Romijn. As a typical cute blonde... yawn... whatever.

As Mystique... blue...scaly... ultra sexual and hot...

I can relate to Laurie.
Blue is hot.

It doesn't hurt that she's pretty much naked, either... :P

Actually, looking at those scales, it might indeed hurt that she's pretty much naked.

No pain, no gain.

If you think of the Crimbusters meeting, here she is in a room full of men. She's been pretty much isolated by her mother most of her life ( "I only know suh-superheroes") and totally inexperienced. She's sixteen with all the hormones that goes with it. Jon's the only one actually paying attention to her.

I think that's plenty to get her... ahem ...juices running :roll:

come to think of it, the guys over there didn't pay attention because:

Capt Metropolis = Gay
Rorshach = Afraid of sexuality
Night Owl 2 = IMPOTENT!
Comedian = Wants others' attention. (he's a comedian, he needs to be the centre of attention)
Adrian Veidt = Possibaly gay. have to investigate. Or he just in love of himself (Narcist!)

So it's just left to Jon with his tight ass hanging around for others to see. :D Wonder why Capt Metropolis didn't hit on Jon?

I'd argue with you on two counts...

Quote:
Night Owl 2 = IMPOTENT!


Not at the time in question. If I recall, he had the attentions of the Midnite Lady to deal with. Also, too shy to make the first move.

Quote:

Possibly, but more likely HE's HER DAD. He may be lacking in morality, but he still carries a few taboos.

Quote:

Probably scared shitless :twisted:

I though Capt Metropolis was into hard sex? probably he wasn't ready for what Jon had to offer in bed.

I don't think the world is ready....... :oops:

Yeah, but there's a fine line between ecstasy and dematerialization :shock:

Gotta say, I have no idea what you're talking about. Blue, orange, fluorescent magenta...makes no difference whatsoever. :lol:

You have my respect bro. Having sex with a blue Scarlett Johansson will only crush my innocent memories about Smurfette.

Come to think of it, Smurfette was the only Smurf in the town. Others were guys. She must've been a village bicycle, everyone had a ride on her!

You've never seen "Donnie Darko", have you?

For my part, I don't think skin color has anything to do it. Laurie was young and horny and curious about this giant, blue, half-naked man with very well-toned muscles. To me, that's it.

How the relationship started isn't a mystery to me. It's what kept the relationship going that puzzles me.
