Watchmen Season 1 Story
The story of the TV series Watchmen takes place 34 years after the main events of the comics. Before that background on these events take the viewers to the 20th century the vigilantes, who were once considered heroes, are now known as outlaws. This is because of their violent methods for justice and the destruction of public properties and possessions.
In 1985, the vigilante Ozymandias who’s real name is Adrian Veidt, created a squid-like alien that imposed a threat on New York City and caused mass destruction of lives. After this alien was killed, Rorschach prepared to tell the world of the misdeeds caused by Ozymandias but was vaporized by Doctor Manhattan. However, Rorschach did send his journal and it got published. In present-day Tulsa, Oklahoma the Seventh Kavalry, which is a group of white supremacists, causes violence and racial wars all around the city by following the writings in Rorschach’s journal.
After this group attacked 40 police officers in their homes back in 2015, the present-day officers and detectives now work in disguise. For that, they wear masks and costumes to hide their identity and profession. The story follows these police officers in costumes trying to crack and expose the Seventh Kavalry. There are secrets revealed along with action-packed scenes. The show is like any other superhero show with supervillains and evil cults being exposed by vigilantes. Even so, the story is as unique as ever.
