Watchmen: Chapter VII - page 8


Panel 1:  Walking through Dan’s basement is like walking through Batman’s Batcave.  Here, in this panel, we get Dan’s prime motivation for becoming a costumed hero:  “I was rich, bored, and there were enough other guys doing it …”  Like Bruce Wayne (Batman), Dan had the financial wherewithal to become a hero, but unlike Batman, he did it out of boredom rather than guilt.
