Manhattan was being a real jerk when he killed Rorschach. He could've just wiped a bit of his memory. The himself said he can do basically anything.
>>
Haha, I never thought about that. Maybe he could have modified Rorschach's personality so he could be less angry and maybe meet a nice girl.
>>
That's why Rorschach kept journals
>>
>>72129141

I think he knew Rorsch had a death wish
>>
>>72129141
Rorschach should have had Manhattans powers. Would we live in utopia?
>>
>>72129141
He knew about the journal and was happy to let it get out, he killed Rorschach because he was tired of his bullshit.
>>
>>72129221
No that would not work.

The characters are arch types. Even if Dr.M modified or erased Rorshachs brain. Eventually Roschach would remember or find a way to remembers. That is what made the Comic work so well. Each "hero" or "villain" was an established comic template. Rorshach would spread the word no matter what. Maybe not right then maybe not 3 days from then but he would have eventually. This is the reason the book was dropped off at the news paper. To show that Rorschach was uncompromising no matter what.
>>
Uh I'm pretty sure he kills Rorschach out of mercy because Rorschach is a crazy person who's about to try to walk from Antarctica back to New York or wherever to blow the lid off Ozymandias' evil plan, and Dr. M is like "oh I should just dematerialize him right now instead of letting him walk off into the tundra and freeze to death."
>>
>>72129328
Maybe, but I think they would find a way to fuck something, somehow. We always do. I think that's what Dr M meant by "nothing ever ends".

>>72129141
Rorschach is the exact opposite of Manhattan, he knew this and if he allowed him to continue living, Rorschach would have defied a God, something Manhattan, despite supposedly being "above our mere squabbles", is still egotistical enough to consider himself. Simply wiping his memory would never remove that distant nausea he would get from being reminded of that moment where this human was rejecting his judgment for the rest of the world, the sheer illogical action of undoing the computer conflict that united the world solely because of the deceptive nature of it. He needed to win.
>>
>>72130043
i dont see how beeing able to create life implies the ability to wipe memory
>>
>>72130159
Jesus could manipulate matter at the molecular level. He could literally use his dick to fuck the center of your brain that stores short term memory until Rorschach will wonder why he feels so cold all of a sudden.

Isn't there a part in the comics where he ssays he doesn't ubderstand the intricacies of human biology? Or else he would have cured janey of her cancer. Thats why he explodes people because he can't just give them a clean heart attack or something

Thats not enough. He would also need to fully understand how human brain works, and be able to read the format in which human memories are saved in the brain
Nothing in the movie implies he had this ability
>>
Christ

you guys are missing the point

Manhattan just became so detached he literally doesn't care about life or humans anymore.
his little GF was his last link to normalcy, hes slaughtered millions, what does he care about one more fucked up person
>>
>>72129141
He's not a god. he can manipulate matter but finding the specific neurons related with those memories would probably not be possible. He might have said "he can do anything" but that's just his human side boasting.
>>
>>72130496
He's basically a god.He doesn't have to care about life or humans or a moral code.
>>
>>72130496
>hes slaughtered millions

Fun fact: memories are actually electricity

Doctor Manhattan can manipulate matter, but I don't remember him ever manipulating electricity
>>
>>72130911
not him, but he did kill people when he went to vietnam
>>
>>72130843
If we can synthesize a pill to wipe out hours of your memory, then even us basic mortals have enough of an understanding of what needs to be altered to remove memories. Maybe not necessarily specific ones, but setting Rorschach back several hours would have been enough. But that would be Manhattan conceding defeat.
>>
>>72129141
The hat flies off in the wrong direction. Rorschach's center of mass would have been the center of the explosion, and would have pushed the had down and away, along the ground.

>>
>>72131502
I know what comic you're referring to.
>>
>>72130043

Creating life is just mixing the right bacteria and giving it a lot of time. Manhattan was immortal, but he wasn't God. He had the time to wait while his experiments bloomed.

Memory, and personality, are so much more complicated, theyre ethereal concepts. Manhattan could destroy part of his brain, but that would be cruel. He wasnt in the game of micromanaging his friends brains. So he just killed him. It was the kinder option. Especially when you consider how broken Rorschach actually was.

Manhattan wasn't a god. People need to stop thinking he could do anything.

Manhattan is shit for multiple reasons. He should've seen that either someone was preventing him from seeing past that moment, or the actual tachyons.

He defied him :^)
Really, Dr M might seem super turbo smart but the joke is that he's still partly human, and that he's still stupid as one.

>>72131690
Dr. M's intervention prevented the general escalation of the late 60s, so that civilian casualties were minimized and the conflict was relatively contained.

Except all the other crazy shit that makes no sense he is able to do like have clones of himself that are all the same entity but separate at the same time. Fucking practically omniscient. Literal warping and a host of other shit that cannot be explained by science.

ok Anons you have a point. But as I recall. It's based on a Comic book "Graphic Novel" and the plot is already bat-shit crazy so a little drama in the happy/not so happy ending is good I guess.

was dr manhatten autistic?
>>
>>72130009
he is clearly established to not be all-knowing.
>>
>>72132148
as far as i understand, his consciousness exists in some other dimension and his body is just an avatar that represents him in this reality. thats why he can create several avatars or survive a complete disintegration of his body.
But that doesn't mean the he completely understands this process and is able to replicate it on others
>>
>>72133279
He's modeled after meme feel guy so..
>>
>>72130009
Except he clearly had no idea about the cancer plot. Or any of the plot, really. He is neither omnipotent nor omnipresent and has no way of knowing the journal exists.
>>
>>72133381
I would also like to add, that he probably didnt have the ability to cure cancer. And if he couldnt do something as simple as that, he sure as hell couldnt wipe memories
>>
>>72133296
He can disintegrate and rebuilt atoms, it's not too hard to do that on brain cells.
>>
>>72133523
disintegrating brain cells sounds pretty deadly to be honest family
>>
>>72133547
Lobotomy kills part of your brain and is perfectly safe.

He doesn't need to destroy it all, just where part of it where the information is stored and then create new cells.
>>
>>72133612
lobotomy destroys part of your personality, it doesnt really delete memories
I dont think Manhattan new exactly in which part of the brain which memories are stored
>>
>>72133653
I know, but compare letting someone literally hammer a giant nail into your brain vs someone that can read at atomic level disintegrating and rebuilding said atoms in less than a second without having to actually open your head.

And of course we've no proof either way but It's pretty easy that he had indeed this knowledge, especially because our brain works based on electrical impulses and his body is made of living energy.
>>
>>72129141
Rorschach wanted to die.
He didn't want to live in a world like that.
Manhattan did him a favor.
He literally asked for it.

m8, comics today are an amalgam of multiple universe shenanigans the discount and nullify any investment in characters or plotlines that you ever held dear or an interest in.

Rebirth is amazing faggot.

It's the first good comic DC has done in a decade. If you truly felt that way about modern comics it'd make you want to pick up Rebirth. This is coming from a Marvel fag.

>>72133420
this he has the power to controls atoms and molecules
he could delete the tumors but that's it
he could inflict severe brain damage to Rorschach but killing him was the nicer solution

So, I just recently read the book. Is this movie worth a watch too?

Eugene's my favorite character on Preacher!
>>
>>72130419

>>72129328
I think part of getting Manhattan powers is losing connection to empathy and humanity.

So in other words, he'd be totally different
>>
>>72129141
Is it ever implied that Manhattan can wipe memories?

He can transmit and receive them, but he isn't omnipotent.
>>
>>72133288
Up to that point, yeah.
Adrian's tachyon generators were clouding the future for him. He could only see his future up to that point. Anything else was vague. Now that he's past that point, his mind is no longer clouded. Therefore everything is open to him.

Does anyone else get embarrassed by this movie's soundtrack?

>Still not realizing Rorschach had a death wish and Manhattan just gave it to him.

There is no greater death than death by a god.

Get the longest version. Extended, or director's cut, or something. It's a big film that had to be cut down for release, which is why it did and still does get a lot of flak, but the full cut is much better.

and you have no idea why that is. watch the movie again and pay attention

The tachyons obscured his visions of the future. He thought the cause of this was a nuclear holocaust. That's why he was so focused on finishing his work with Adrian.
