Hey, there's nothing wrong with this place.

Besides, Dr. Manhattan said nothing ever ends. That place is probably a hellhole now like it was when I first joined.

I guess I'll follow Vynson's example.
Physically, I don't think I really look like anyone from the Watchmen world. I know I said the Tales from the Black Freighter guy, but I'm pretty off from that.

However, when my hair is cut short, I think I give off this Zack Snyder vibe. We also have a lot of the same mannerisms and expressions but my voice is not at all like his. I think I look and sound more Billy Crudup.

But in terms of personality, I still identify with Dreiberg the most.

Physically: Daniel Dreiberg, I got a gut and glasses. I'm more like what if Dan was a metalhead, muscular arms, long hair and beard.

Mentally: a mix of Dan and Eddie Blake. on a good day I'm like Dan, just a dude who trying to get though life one day at a time, but on a bad day I'm like The Comedian, I see like a life as sadistic joke and reflects the absurdities of world, and the only to cope is to be just sadistic and just as absurd.

my closet:is like The Comedian's hidden cache of weapons, because I do paintball and airsoft battles on the weekends, I got all kinds of armor and airsoft guns in there.

My favorite costume: The Comedian costume during the riots, with gimp mask and m79 grenade launcher included.

Physically: Pretty much the same as Rorschach/Walter, sans Red Hair and a touch more height (I'm about 5'8)

Mentally: Hmm...Tough one there...I'd say I'm a blend of a few characters. I, for the most part, get along well with a lot of people but I also don't usually show my truest self to just anyone. I had some bad experiences in my final 2 years of High School that left me pretty bitter. I tend to have a bit of a cynical-leaning view of people around me, which, in the ways of George Carlin, if you aren't somewhat smart at least, I will probably see you as either stupid, full of crap, nuts or a combo of the 3. Not to mention i, likely will treat you like crap if I do see you as one of the 3. And it's not that I don't have friends...it's that I'm a bit more picky now as to who I consider a "good friend" now a days.

Jeez...So I guess I would say a bit of Dan, Rorscach and Veidt are in me. Maybe even the Comedian but that's a stretch.

Damn. This is gonna be hard.

Well Physically I'm Rorschach. I'm about 5'6 and is around the 180 lbs weight range.

Mentally I'm Dan. Im super excluded. I worry about everything. I try to live life one day at a time. ECT. So big surprise there :|

What characters are you most like? Physical? Mentaly? Same names?

I look most like Daniel Dreiberg. Glasses, a little chubby (but not fat). Althought my personality is a mix of Daniel and Rorschach. I kinda like being to myself and would never reveal my true idenity whilst also I am like him in realtionships. I find myself to be the guy who you can break down to, let it out, I'd never try anything to harm you. But I get my Rorschach traits by being obbessive and will take no mercy when comitting justice.

Also, my and ol'Blot Face have the same middle name, Joseph which I have pointed out to everyone that I know.



I'm very much like Rorschach, in my morals system or lack there of, people are mostly afraid of me, and I can fight fairly well when I have to.

Well this sounds fun, time to give it a try!

Physically, gotta be closer to Laurie (from the Crimebusters flashbacks) and Rorschach. Laurie for the girl aspect, and Rorschach cause he's as tall as I am.
Mentally, Laurie (again for the girl aspect), and maybe Comedian. I like most of his jokes.

Physically, I'm a mix of most of the characters.

I'm short like Rorschach.
I wear glasses like Dan.
I'm blonde like Veidt.
I'm female like Laurie, and I also have a very similar name.

Mentally, I'm a mix of Dan and Manhattan. I'm pretty average for the most part, but at times I'm disconnected with others.

I related mostly with Dr. Manhattan's disconnect, apathy, and introverted interests. Much like Manhattan, I find there's much more to be learned and experienced by viewing the world and people through all of it's prisms and points of view, not just your own.

Physically I am probably most like the Comedian, I'm 6' 2" tall, built like a rugby player (which I used to be), shortish brown hair, and on and off a goatee beard depending on mood, and preference of my other half at that time.

Mentally, I am probably most like Adrian, not as intelligent as him of course, but I do believe morality and ethics are situational, and I do believe in careful forward planning. As with many here, I am fond of the sound of my own voice and believe strongly in those things I have an opinion about. I also find most of humanity difficult to understand sometimes.......

Physically....the Vietnamese prostitute, lol. I am actually Vietnamese; my parents were refugees of the Vietnam War. I'm short (5' 2.5"), black-haired, and near the same build (except the pregnant belly), and I have the similar pudgy nose. Also, I do have a touch of Walter's "fascinatingly ugly" looks and I wear glasses -- I'm blind as a bat without them -- like Dan.

Psychologically and personally...I'd say Rorschach. Like him, I grew up in an abusive family, I'm not excepted by most of them either, and was bullied intensely by people my age until college. I consider myself intelligent, creative, and rather obsessive. I'm an insomniac. I'm, also, very socially awkward and isolated, sexually inexperienced, and possess a similar sense of morality and ethics. I'm a whole-hearted devourer of information, a needler for the truth, and an advocate of strong, quick justice. I, too, have a strange habit of digging through people's kitchens, like peeking into people's refrigerators and stealing saltine crackers from restaurants; it's often the first thing I do when I enter someone else's kitchen. (It happened naturally because the first thing you do when you get home is to look for something to eat. You can tell a lot from a person by what they have in their kitchens.) And, yes, when I'm lazy (or too busy), I eat right out of the can.

Socially, I'm both Nite Owls. I'm friendly, sociable, easy-going, honest, and extremely nerdy, with an odd sweet-and-sour sense of humour. I can be calm, yet primarily I'm a hyperactive ball of nervous energy. I'll talk to strangers with no problem, yet I'm a good listener as well. (People confess the darnest things to me!) I love having conversations that would last for hours on end. I have many acquaintances, but few true friends. Yet, internally, I have anxiety problems -- even though, my exterior demeanour rarely ever show this -- but naturally plagued with self-doubt and low confidence, resulting in me being a loner -- a plotter who plots alone. I have a habit of over-thinking situations and being super indecisive when it comes to decision-making. When I finally come to a decision, the moment would have already passed. I'm just trying to get through life one day at a time.

Politically, I'm like Ozymandias. I'm very liberal in mind and careful in thought. I have very absolute opinions and defend them strongly; but, unlike him, I love hearing other people's views. I have a cynical view of the world and I find humanity as a whole to understand because they're absurdly emotional, not logical, creatures. I believe a "utopia" can exist, but only when human race no longer exists on this planet.

Mentally, I'm like Dr. Manhattan. The way I process information, I feel, is "different" than most people, so I have strange "thinking outside the box" mentality. I'm an absolute glutton for knowledge and information. I like to learn and experience the world through many different means and perspectives. I can be very arrogant and overtly superiour, although I don't mean to be. (I also like to walk around my house half-naked....but it's far too cold to do that now.)

Romantically, I'm a bit of everyone: Like Nite Owl II, I'm not classically attractive in any way. Lately, I've been feeling like Silk Spectre II, because wherever I go a congregation of strange, awkwardly geeky men flock toward me, yet like Dr. Manhattan, I'm wholly oblivious to this! Like Silk Spectre I, I feel like I'm being pressuring into it in order to be socially accepted. Like Ozymandias, I feel romance is a distraction from my life goals and that clouds and confuses a logical mind; yet, like Rorschach, I don't think I deserve to be loved, which is (probably) why I act so indifferently towards it. And, like the Comedian, it's probably the life that isn't for me anyway.

Did I miss anything? I think I got everything.

Ahh I dunno about this one...

I suppose Physically... for the girl aspect I'm Laurie. I have to keep myself in shape because I'm a dancer but my body doesn't seem to want me to STAY in shape... :roll: I have to work hard for that..

I suppose Mentally I'm alot like Laurie too I identify completely with her, although I do have quite a bit of nerdyness in me... among friends i'm known as the nerd :D .. which is nice...

Mentally: My perspective and outlook on life and the world is spot-on Comedian.

Probably why he's my favorite character...

Physically: I have to say Blake in is final days. Pretty tall and ripped but have some weight on

Mentally: Rorschach and Blake because when I was younger I hated my mom and I began to think how life is a joke.

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

Alam Moore stated that he gave his characters different personalities so that everyone could identify with them. Which of the watchmen do you think you are most like?
