john watson - weep little lion man

This is not to instigate any sort of war and I believe we're all sensible enough to not engage in one anyway. ;) But mod, feel free to delete this if inappropriate. ^^;;

I am wondering, what are your thoughts about the differences between comicverse!Adrian and movieverse!Adrian? Any form of opinions welcomed, on any aspect of the man himself - be it the personality or the demeanour and actions. (Okay not so much the absolute senseless, to keep to the comm guidelines - no omgliekhe'ssohot comments. LOL.)

This came across my mind as, to be truthful, I am introduced to Watchmen via the movie. While watching the movie, I am indifferent to all characters, but upon reading the comic, my heart goes out to Adrian (comicverse). I will say that I do not not like the movieverse!Adrian - it is just that he comes across as a slightly different person - hence, the prompt. I'd like to hear other people's thoughts on this matter. :)

thanks for this. I hated how I felt bludgeoned by Adrian's "goodness" in the film, the way he had that confrontation with the businessmen in the movie... and then the boys folder. He was less subtle. The accent thing puzzled me as well, are they saying he was raised in Germany before he went over? I wasn't sure that was needed. Personal bias.

On the other hand, I see what they did with the whole celebrity thing, and how they couldn't have done that with the Roth interview.

I guess I'm saying I prefer graphic novel Adrian. He's more of a subtle character, and looks more the part. He looks like he has worked on his physique. They played up the spiritual side of him more as well, as opposed to the businessman

But I guess that was appropriate to the medium.
