image The comic and film take place in an alternative 1985 where Nixon is in his fifth term as president, and superheroes are as common as celebrities to the point they’re phased out of comic books.

Unfortunately, due to the Keene Act of 1977, superheroes are outlawed and illegal, sans Edward Blake/The Comedian (Jeffery Dean Morgan). Poor Edward receives a visit from a hooded man who beats him to a pulp and tosses him out of a window.

An ex-vigilante (and former Watchmen/Crimebuster) Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley) decides to investigate the murder of Edward Blake, suspecting someone is picking off costumed heroes. What follows is a tale of deception, rape, violence, and saving the world.
