Dr Manhatten's Relationships with humans
Rorschach's Thought Process
Adrian Veidt's Obsession and Isolation
Together in the Final Moments
In the end, I believe that this story closes with a positive outlook that promotes human unity. Much of the darkness and evil in the story comes from the isolation in the character's lives, such as Veidt's treachery and Dr. Manhatten's indifference. Both of these characters are castaways, just as the pirate that was closely paralleled to Veidt's story. Both of these lonely characters are key components in the path to New York's destruction. The morally righteous and emphatic characters, on the other hand, come together and unite in the face of evil. Rorschach and his old partner Nite Owl become a team again, the newspaper lender and child embrace as the monster lands in New York, and the Doctor finds reconciliation with his wife. The story ends with an important lesson that human companionship and unity is needed for true peace.
