This Spoils the Ending
In the Graphic Novel In the Movie
   Dan and Rorschach find Adrian and he is eating. He sees their reflection in his gold serving tray. He attacks Rorschach and whips the bowl lid at Dan hitting him in the mouth. Adrian is watching a bank of televisions and Rorschach attacks and Adrian beats him off. He throws a chair at Dan.
   Rorschach tells his shrink in prison about how he got started. He worked at a garment company and they made a dress for a woman that she didn't like. He kept it and turned it into his mask. It had moving liquid between latex, so it was always changing. He later read that the woman was raped and murdered and none of her neighbors did anything about it, even though they heard it all. He became Rorschach after that so he could look at himself in the mirror. His mask isn't discussed. He only tells the story of the child kidnapper that he killed.
   Rorschach visits Dan to tell him about the Comedian and suggest that Hollis Mason might be part of it. Dan tells him not to go and scare Hollis. Rorschach leaves. Dan doesn't say that. He says he doesn't like Rorschach following him. Rorschach says he wants retribution for the Comedian's murder. Says Tricky Dick can't tell them what to do. Dan pleads that he can lead a normal life because no one knows what he looks like. He says Dan is hiding in plain sight. Then he leaves.
   After Laurie realizes that Jon has duplicated himself to have a threesome with her and to keep working, she gets angry and throws a beaker through his chest. He reassembles the broken pieces and holds it in his hand. She throws a piece of machinery through his forehead that smashes into a tv behind him. The TV is fixed almost immediately.
   Dan and Laurie have sex. Outside Jon destroys Rorschach. Dan goes outside and watches as Jon destroys Rorschach.
