The test provides feedback such as the following: Rorschach: Uncompromising even in the face of Armageddon, Walter Kovacs – aka. Rorschach – is an embittered, deeply disturbed vigilante with an obsession for retribution. Growing up ashamed of his appearance and his mother’s profession as a sex worker, the adult Rorschach takes pride in punishing society’s criminals with little restraint and no matter the cost. When a fellow ex-Crimebuster is murdered under suspicious circumstances, Rorschach takes it upon himself to warn his peers, regardless of his personal opinions of them. Though his ideals of right and wrong are controversial, he’s a man of iron convictions with the resolve to see his version of justice done. Rorschach respects law and order yet believes rampant corruption compels him to take matters into his own capable hands when the system fails. He appreciates working as part of a team toward the greater common good, yet he is content to operate as a lone warrior up against the world, with only his journal to keep him company if that is what justice demands.
Dr. Manhattan: A godlike being of unfathomable power, Dr. Manhattan was once Dr. Jonathan Osterman, a shy physicist with a penchant for watch repair. After an atomics experiment ripped his human form to shreds, Osterman patiently rebuilt himself one molecule at a time into an invincible superbeing. Capable of wondrous intellectual feats as well as dispassionate destruction, he is quickly recruited to serve the American military as the ultimate weapon against the threat of the Soviet Union. Over the years, Manhattan has become increasingly dissociated with humanity and its trivial problems. He took only a casual interest in crime-fighting (because of his attraction to Silk Spectre II, who, at the time, was a young member of the Crimebusters). Eventually, Manhattan left his wife for his paramour and then left Earth itself, taking Silk Spectre II to Mars to prove the pointlessness of human affairs. Yet his recognition of her emotional, tragic history awakens him to the value of life, prompting his return to try and avert a nuclear holocaust.
Silk Spectre II: Daughter of superhero sex icon Silk Spectre, young Laurie Jupiter/Juspeczyk vied for her mother’s attention by following in her footsteps — dressing up in a skimpy costume to fight crime with a pack of adult men calling themselves the Crimebusters. Though she’s easily able to hold her own as a vigilante, Silk Spectre II was never respected by fellow member Rorschach and was lusted after by Nite Owl II and Dr. Manhattan. While still very young, Spectre reciprocated Manhattan’s attentions, and he ultimately left his wife to be with her. Realizing Spectre is the only thing keeping the nearly-omnipotent being connected to humanity, the government tried to strictly regulate her behavior. At last, she takes back control of her life, leaving to have an affair of her own and get out from under the shadows of her past. When forced to confront her repressed memories, she discovers and overcomes the traumatic truth that the Comedian was her father.
