It continues. I don't understand why Captain Metropolis (and Hooded Justice too... hmmm) is STILL left hardly mentioned at all even in the Director's Cut; and he is left out of Rorschach's journal round-up. Plenty of people who see the movie who haven't read the book are wondering, "So, who was that guy in the red cowl again, and that hooded guy, and what happened to them?"

It seems strange to cover everyone else, even just in passing (Dollar Bill, Silhouette, Mothman) but leave out two other Minutemen.

Well, Mothman, Silhouette, and Dollar Bill all found their respective fates very publicly, and with their costumes on. Hooded Justice up and disappeared, with only speculation as to who he really was and what really became of him, and Nelson Gardner was decapitated in a car accident. Kind of difficult to cover those two things in an opening montage that they had to extend Bob Dylan's song to cover all of in the first place.

Though, you do see an allusion to their relationship in that opening montage, as I just showed someone the other day. During the "happy retirement Sally" segment, look to the far right of the screen, and you can see Hooded Justice brush Gardner's face with his hand as Gardner smiles and the two stare at each other, obviously removed from whatever else is going on.

For some reason nobody has mentioned that the Comedian reported failure on his mission. What if he really did fail to find Hooded Justice? Everyone seems to have assumed that he lied. :roll:

Sooo...the evidence that Hooded Justice and Captain Metropolis are still alive is that there are 2 old gay guys holding hands, and their bowties look slightly like masks?
