I wanted to … make [Rorschach] as like, ‘this is what Batman would be in the real world’. But I have forgotten that actually to a lot of comic fans, ‘smelling’, ‘not having a girlfriend’, these are actually kind of heroic! So Rorschach became the most popular character in Watchmen. I made him to be a bad example. But I have people come up to me in the street and saying: ‘I AM Rorschach. That is MY story’. And I’d be thinking: ‘Yeah, great. Could you just, like, keep away from me, never come anywhere near me again as long as I live?’

Gee I thought it might be the fact that he strongly adheres to his principles and isn’t willing to live in a world built on the bloody corpses of a million innocent people.
And lie to the entirety of humanity for eternity? Like, that is also a huge thing.(via i-dont-need-feminism)
