Watchmen Clock



If you've read the book then the picture speaks for itself.

That is my interpretation of Adrian Veidt's actions, anyway.

As MeganPhntmGrl said, many see him as a savior figure, who sacrificed his humanity (when he said that he could "feel" everyone's deaths) in order to save humanity.

However, I disagree in that I believe that's how he sees himself. My interpretation is that he parallels the man in the black freighter story; while trying to do a good thing, he ended up causing much more harm. As is shown in this picture, I believe his actions, rather than stopping the doomsday clock, simply delayed it for five minutes.
