old-age: Watchmen

Watchmen

In the 1930s and 1940s vigilantes formed a group called the Minutemen to ‘finish what the law couldn’t’. They started out as heros helping to catch criminals and to win World War II. In the 1980s the world hovers on the brink of nuclear war a second generation is calling themselves the Watchmen but the glory days are over, the government has cracked down on their activities, and there is a conspiracy to kill and discredit them.

Sally Jupiter (Carla Gugino) was the original Silk Spectre. Now she spends her time drinking margaritas in the afternoon and reminiscing about her old Minuteman days.

Janey Slater has fared even worse. She was Jon Osterman’s first girlfriend but a month later he was disintegrated when he was accidentally locked in the Intrinsic Field Test Chamber. He returned as Dr Manhattan and they continued their relationship but she aged while he did not. Worse because of her knowledge of Dr Manhatten she was recruited by Dimensional Developments and as a result of her work there as a physicist she developed cancer.
