In the Dave Gibbons
and Alan Moore
masterpiece of graphic novels Watchmen
is a vigilante in New York City. He wears a mask of a special fabric (a "Dr. Manhattan
spin-off") that contains a fluid trapped between layers of latex. The fluid creates black and white patterns on the mask; the two never mix, and are always symmetrical
, as in a Rorschach Blot
He is one of the most, if not the most complex characters in the book; indeed, its structure could be said to have been based around him. He has no superhuman powers, just natural agility and gymnastic ability, along with absolute rage at injustice and abuse.
