I can't wait for issue three to reveal the shocking resurrection of the first Nite Owl, Moloch, and Bernie the newspaper vendor.

And then the issue ends in the cliffhanger of "Oh Shit, Grant Morrison's In This!"

Breaking into your home and eating your food, typical Rorschach

No, just usual Rorschach behavior

Rorschach looks like he really enjoyed those pancakes. I can't remember seeing Rorschach this happy outside of parody.

You think the comic is dumb enough to reveal Dr. Long is the new Rorschach?

BTW, despite what I have said previously, my main issue with this thing (beyond just its existence period) is where I'm 80% sure it's going. So far, this isn't exactly incompetent-I stand behind Johns being a terrible choice for this, but he's clearly trying his best and he does capture the style fine, even if he doesn't capture the substance. And I get where he is going with this-Ozymandias fooled his world into thinking it's a genre superhero world, while Lex is tricking his world into thinking it's the real world.

And as pointed out, in a way, this still has more reason to exist than Before Watchmen.

I gotta admit, as much as the human half of my brain doesn't want this to exist, the lizard half of my brain is just lapping up all that style. Much easier to read than today's pinup-first, story second storytelling.

They even managed to reproduce the original's not-quite-round speech balloons! That's some dedi... NO! BAD BRAIN!

where do you think it's going? i feel the "Watchmen" aspects are being forced in (DC world LOVES their heroes, that's what makes them different from Marvel) the only way i see this going is the likes of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman show how wrong the Watchmen were.

"So kids, now that the evils of the comic we've been milking for years that are responsible for everything bad we ever did are defeated, I think we all learned the moral of the story: Light comics=good, dark comics=bad. Anyway, tune in next time for our epic event, where Brainiac's pet monkey Coco tears Krypto's head off!"

Okay, so...
Apparently we're supposed to accept the plot point that the people of the DC Universe really would turn against super-beings and costumed folks en-masse, yet again, on something with spurious evidence.
(And if these people are out on the streets protesting Batman, how long would it last before the Joker decides to get involved?)

Which in itself is just so... small and reductive. Rather than try and world-build, or establish that everywhere on the planet is weird and insane, it's just "NOPE. ONLY AMERICA MATTERS."

I'm admittedly not caught up with Rebirth continuity, but... isn't there all kinds of non-American heroes already established in this continuity? The Great Ten and the Justice League of China, the JLI, Batman Incorporated, all those?

They don't say that only America has superhumans, just the vast majority.

there are, bt I believe full details of this plot here claims, most but not all superheroes are the results of government experiments

Well, with "Bannermain Chemical" and a "green flame", I think a certain Society is on its way back.
