Physically: Dan. I got the glasses and we have the same hair. I'm fairly round, but I've got muscular arms.

Mentally: Comedian, with some of Dreidberg thrown in. I have a pretty twisted sense of humor and a quick mouth. Like Dan I have a curiosity that usually leads me to have weird adventures. Also I have to make a lot of decisions for other people.

I would have to say Daniel Dreiberg. I have my OWN secret identity. I'm a U.S Marine Reservist and I don't go around telling everyone its something I do on the side and I have my cammies in my closet just like Daniel had his Nite Owl Costume stored.

Physically and Mentally, I like The Comedian. He's a terrible terrible man, but I loved every time he was featured in a flashback.

But as a hero and someone who I could idolize, it would have to be Rorschach.

Don't worry about it. When I read it, you had already edited it so no damage done.

I don't think I look like anybody in the book! Maybe like the Tales of the Black Freighter guy, only much skinnier and younger.

As far as attitude goes, I think I am most similar to Dreiberg. Mostly calm, rather reserved but with a sense of humor and sometimes I feel like the odd one out since I am not as radical in thought as many of my friends are or because I am the one who sees things more calmly and logically but not in a cold way since it's very easy for me to empathize with other people.

Also there have been times where the problems of the world (specially in my city, which has a huge problem with safety) have left me feeling "impotent" and without optimism.

Physically... I'd say I look more like Alan Moore than any of his characters.

Mentally... Christ... who want to mop up the mess I could make with that?

spiritually... yeah... I don't really do that. Probably my loss. I was born into the Primative Baptist religion. Didn't really work for me. Studied religon and everything else at a Baptist University. Didn't really work for me. Read a shitload of Ayn Rand. That did something. Read a shitload of Alan Moore and married a godless commie. That helped. Actually, she was just agnostic... until her first week with me... that fixed her.

Soooo...I can't really compare myself to anything in Watchmen. I'm just a freak that way.

I'm probably closer to Hawkeye Pierce in M*A*S*H...physically and mentally... with longer hair... and without the Korean war to justify my insanity.

Hawkeye Pierce. One of the greatest t.v. characters ever!

[NOTE: This post started its own thread before it was merged here. --"Curiosity Inc."]

If you could be and Watchmen Character who would you be and why?

I'd be Rorschach because I feel like the world has to much scum in it and it needs to be rid of.

Physically, I'm a Dan(ielle) Dreiberg.

Personality-wise, probably also most like Dan. I'm a neeeeeerd, guys. A nerd who waxes poetic on subjects she's academically interested in (am I the only one who LOVED Dan's owl essay in the book?). I'm usually a slow burn temper-wise, too. It seems to take an awful lot to get Dan mad.

As an aside, I'm mildly creeped out that anyone would want to be Rorschach. I might want to be nice to Rorschach but being him? No thanks. If I could choose to BE anyone from the book, I'd probably pick Laurie or Dan. They have their problems but they sure have a whole lot fewer problems than everybody else.

Physically: A mixture between Dan and Rorschach. I keep my body in shape, but never really work out.

Mentally: Mixture between Comedian, Manhattan and Rorschach. Sometimes I would really like to hit people in the face. Sometimes I actually do it, and feel much better after doing so. There are just days where I couldn't care less for anything in the world. Every now and then, I get that feeling of pride in where I do what I feel makes me comfortable and better about myself.

I'm a depressed and neurotic cynic who sees life as a cruel joke, like the comedian. But I'm also (not to toot my own horn) somewhat intelligent like Dan, and I'm depressed when it comes to relationships (hell and damnation).

Physically, I have a Veidt body (lean in thin, not quite as muscluar though :P), with a Comedianish face, and curly Rorschach hair that's dark brown instead of red.

I'm definitely Adrian. There's a reason he's my favorite character. I have a dislike of people; many of them are stupid and make poor decisions. I support the "ends justify the means" idea. Just about everything he does and stands for is me.

Over on another forum I won't name, I and others were opposed to a group of trolls who essentially controlled the forum with their derailing conversations and the moderators' poor skills. Eventually I realised, like Adrian, that petty squabbles with these trolls was useless and something big needed to be done. I manipulated half the board into a civil war to disguise what I eventually did to the trolls, which is "obtain" their accounts and get rid of them. The board was a "stronger loving world" afterword...but just like Adrian, I couldn't bear to know if it would work, and so I left. I've never returned to see what the aftermath of my "alien squid" was.
