A lot of people either hate or praise Rorschach, but does anyone else here feel bad for the guy? Because nobody ever really wanted to help him, they all just left him to rot in the abyss of his own issues

    I thought the point was that he distanced himself from everyone when they weren't willing to do what was necessary. Dan was still friends with him from his point of view. He was also tired of trying to help someone who didn't want help.

    I feel bad. His arc is tragic.

    I feel bad for him in the sense that his upbringing sucked and helped in making him the sociopath that he would become later on. But at some point, one has to take accountability for how you run out and not just blame it on your parents or your environment.

      I don’t think he blamed anyone for who he was. He thought he was the way he should be.

        Lol mate, "they will look up and shout 'save us!' And I will whisper 'no.'" Pretty strongly indicates he holds a massive grudge against society for making him the way he is.

          No, he's just disgusted with a city that simultaneously revels in the filth but then refuses to take accountability and call on others to save them. It has nothing to do with a sense of victimhood.

            Then why does he help anyone at all? He's severely mentally ill and can't stand the contradictions within himself, so he pretends to have a black and white way of handling things. It's the thrust of his character. He hates the world but also loves it. He hates New York and wants to see it burn, but when it actually happens he decides to not be complicit in its burning.

              His "no" is directed at the criminals and the dark underbelly of the city. They will all eventually pay for their sinful lives whether it be by his hand or drowning in the accumulated filth, as he says. And when they do begin to suffer by their own hand, he will look the other way to their suffering since he sees it as deserved.

                Except he's talking about literally everyone in the city and his final act in the book is refusing to look the other way

                He's only referring to criminals and the morally questionable in his opening monologue (vermin, prostitutes, politicians). He is refusing to look the other way because Adrian is going to kill innocent people, which he can't abide by. He doesn't hate the world. He believes there are good people (his father, President Truman, Dan). Rorschach literally just hates criminals. He doesn't see himself as better than the world, he sees himself as the only person who is willing to do what needs to be done to stop evil.

                Rorschach does not hate the world. You're imposing a broader character archetype on to him that is incompatible with his actions. If you do that, his character makes no sense and contradicts itself. He pays his respects to his fellow heroes and rejects Adrian's plan for his willingness to take innocent lives. If Rorschach didn't believe there were good and innocent people in the world, he would have no problem with it.

                You are projecting onto Rorschach and failing to understand that hypocrisy is the core of his character.

                You can’t help someone who doesn’t want help. He was a mentally unstable hobo and highly antagonistic to everyone for giving up and selling out when they outlawed masked vigilantes.

                >He's only referring to criminals and the morally questionable

                He considers everyone to be degenerate scum.

      I always thought it was weird that they gave Rorschach two origin stories. I know that's the point, but I think all it did was muddy the waters between people seeing the two distinct arcs.

    Yes, I think most readers pity Rorschach, it just gets lost in the HE'S EPIC vs HE'S AN INCEL bullshit.

    You can blame rorshach, but it's more the world he grew up/lives in.

    As we saw, he was kinda a detective/cop, that fought crime, and then he saw a guy who cooked, murdered, and ate? a little girl, and revealed that the law probably wouldn't punish him either enough, or maybe at all.
    You can always do bail or junk. (American law is broken in real life too).
    And that basically broke him, to see something so messed up, and know society wouldn't fix it, only murder could fix it.
    So yeah, he's kinda messed up because of junk like that.
    I mean he was a kid that bit off another guys ear as well.
    So he was kinda always a bit messed up.
    But i would say the world around him is more messed up then him, and increased his problems.

    He's not that abnormal i think.
    Most "average" people also have inner/personality/emotional problems of some kinds.
