Opening Banter

 

In Our Feature Presentation: Watchmen spoiler conversation.

 

No Adrian Veidt, no Looking Glass

 

Hooded Justice origin story

 

Captain Metropolis - even the Minutemen won’t accept Will for who he really is, and they won’t help him when he needs help

 

Plays out very differently in American Hero Story (escapes through glass instead of entering through it)

 

June as Will Reeves’s Alfred - her true identity is revealed

 

“Beware the Cyclops” - Klan’s subliminal plan uncovered

 

Passing down trauma to the next generation: Will’s son dresses up like Hooded Justice & Will freaks out about it

 

Judd question

 

June question

 

The episode’s aesthetic choices - is this a repudiation of the idea that Lindelof is dunking on Zack Snyder?
