read watchmen back in junior high. had assumed the ending was dark in the way 1984 was dark - as a cautionary tale. later earned that moore was a political fruitloop and met people who believed that he intended ozymandius as the hero of the piece. still not sure which side i fall on.
rorschach is the hero anyway. even if you assume that he was set up as a straw man, some conservative ideas are so powerful that they resonate with audiences in ways the writers never intended.
