The Watchmen is a superhero movie that hit the theatres in 2009. Based on the comic book series by the same name, the Watchmen is set in an alternative 1985 at the apex of the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States. In this time and alternative place in history, various masked and costumed superheroes are part of the every day fabric of life in the US and have even worked for the government. The masked heroes are there to combat evil forces in America, which are largely due to an influx of masked gangs and criminals that are running rampant.
When one of their own is murdered, the remaining heroes reunite to form a posse and a vigilante investigation to save themselves, but it could it also potentially change the course of American history forever. As the group delves into the background of the killing, an even deeper, intensely evil plot is discovered.
The Watchmen are a diverse group of superheroes that you can recreate for Halloween. From the quantum hero “Doctor Manhattan” to the sultry “Silk Spectre”—your favorite Watchmen heroes are here for your ultimate Halloween costume fantasy.
