“objects are only a set of statistical likelihoods – a cloud of qualities-in-potential, yet to be distilled into any specific form.  We can never simply find out what they are, because their attributes are unfixed until we observe them.  They’re nothing without us. ”
Richard Bensam, Minutes to Midnight: Twelve Essays on Watchmen

“All of Moore’s emphasis on the psychology of super-heroes in Watchmen wasn’t about making Rorschach crazy for the sake of craziness, nor to inject new levels of violence into the super-hero.  (If only Zach Snyder, for all his fidelity, had understood that!)  It was about making the super-hero realistic, because the practice of taking to the streets in costume would, in the real world, attract people prone to psychopathology. ”
