Season 1 - Watchmen: Motion Comic
"Laurie and Dan start putting together pieces of a conspiracy that leads them to the decision to go break Rorschach out of prison. When they all return to Dan's apartment, Dr. Manhattan return from his self-exile on Mars and wisks Laurie away so they can discuss the situation."
"A depressed Dan gives Laurie a tour of his basement and all of his old crime fighting equipment. Later, Dan tires to make love to Laurie but just can’t get himself going. After she discovers Dan sulking, Laurie convinces Dan to suit up in his old costume and go for a ride in the Owl Ship."
"As Rorschach, whose real name is revealed to be Walter Kovacs, gets acclimated to life inside a federal prison, the details of his childhood and origins as a vigilante are recounted by the unmasked crimefighter during sessions with a prison psychologist."
"Rorschach continues his investigation into the murder of The Comedian as another former costumed hero, Ozymandias, is attacked and almost killed. But when Rorschach follows up a lead at a retired super villian’s apartment, he is caught by the police and has his face revealed for the first time."
"During his self-exile on Mars, Dr. Manhattan recalls his youth as Jon Osterman, son of a watchmaker who forced him into a career in nuclear physics. But a terrible accident in an atomic lab turns Osterman into a radioactive “super being” causing him to sacrifice his relationship with his first love."
"As the world braces for what could be a doomsday scenario between the U.S. and Russia, Laurie leaves Dr. Manhattan and goes to Dan for consoling. Meanwhile, the media puts Dr. Manhattan under scrutiny, linking him to a rash of cancer deaths, and forcing him to escape to the planet Mars."
"This chapter is set against The Comedian’s funeral where Silk Spectre recalls her horrific assault at the hands of The Comedian and while Nite Owl and Dr. Manhattan recount their own experiences that reveal The Comedian to have been a larger-than-life enigma: a hero and a villain in one costume."
"A murder takes place in New York City. "The Comedian," a former costumed crime fighter, was thrown out the window of a skyscraper. This event triggers an investigation that rounds up many of The Comedian's former superhero allies, who are now banned from carrying out any acts of "justice.""
