We’re almost done with the battle between the Watchmen and the characters that inspired them.  This week it’s a battle of the faceless ones as The Question takes on Rorschach, and YOU, the Major Spoilers Legion, gets to decide who wins… and who ends up screaming to the doctor to give him back his face.

    Rorschach may f- you up with righteous fury, but The Question was trained by Richard Dragon. You can’t beat the kung-fu… Plus, HE HAS NO FACE!

  2. Question, mainly because of the JLU. Whose version was inspired by Rorschach, but Rorschach was inspired by the Question, so older man wins.

    Rorschach is pretty effing cool, but I’m partial to The Question (as well as Renee Montoya) because of the 52 connection. :D

  4. As much as I want Rorschach to raise my children because I believe him to be a wonderful roll model, The question would kick his ass.

    The Question was trained by a great martial artist in a wheelchair. Rory is a whatever goes retard stregnth kinda guy.

  5. I voted for Rorschach, mainly because his character blew me away when I first read Watchmen. But The Question is also a good character. He was one of my faves in JLU (which version, admittedly, was based on RR), but I also liked him in Huntress: Cry for Blood.

    It’s interesting to see that Watchmen has become so influential that the original Charleston characters are now often overshadowed and themselves influenced by the Watchmen chars.

  6. I’m a huge fan of the Dennis O’Neill Question run. Watchmen is great. I do not like the Renee Montoya Question. Still, I voted for the Question anyway.
