(2) This old unsold Superboy pilot starts and ends with a lot of discussion of social issues. In between, plenty of superhero intervention.

(4) The hidden genius of the Rorschach mask.
“Rorschach is probably the most recognizable character from the Watchmen graphic novel and movie with his constantly changing black and white mask. His costume contains genius design elements. Not only does the origin of Rorschach’s mask echo Walter Kovacs’ own history, but it also demonstrates the power of superhero masks. They can hide one identity, yet reveal another. Watchmen also shows the inherent power in a villain unmasking a comic book hero!”
