The official site for Watchmen has begun adding character profiles for our select vigilantes starting with The Comedian, aka Edward Morgan Blake. It looks like all the profiles will be coming with a description of the character, a cool wallpaper and buddy icons.
Watchmen Site Shows Character
One of the most active vigilantes in the Watchmen universe, Edward Blake operated as the Comedian for decades, in addition to working for the U.S. government in Vietnam and elsewhere. Originally a jester-themed hero, he later took on a more militaristic outfit, in keeping with his violent solutions to most problems. He is by all appearances a cynical egotist using moralistic vigilantism as a cover for his sadistic tendencies.
