Watchmen is one of the greatest comics of all time (though it's not for comic newbies). It's the creation of preeminent comic writer Alan Moore, telling the tale of a gritty alternate universe in which Nixon remained president into the '80s. As this beloved graphic novel has been around for so long, and has branched out into pop culture in a big way after the film adaptation in 2009, there are Watchmen fan theories galore. Some theories are as imminently plausible as Doctor Manhattan being aware of the reader, and some are perhaps less plausible but still entertaining, like Doctor Manhattan being the creator of the Smurfs and their universe.
It's up to you to decide whether these fan theories about Watchmen are accurate. There are major spoilers ahead for both the graphic novel and the film, and kind of even for V for Vendetta (seriously).
