Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

If you haven't read the graphic novel The Watchmen, you certainly should. IMO the movie didn't hold a candle to the original. The plot is centered around a retired team of superheroes like the Justice League of America or the Avengers, but only one of them has super powers. The rest are more like Batman - acting based on superb physical training and technological gadgets. Anyway, a decade or so before the main action, superheroes were outlawed (like in the Incredibles), and so most went into training. Someone, though, is killing these retired heroes, and this brings the others back into action. The whole story is very gritty and dark - definitely not for kids. Anyway, Paul Lee put together a LEGO version of the movie poster.
