It starts of with Dr. Jonathan Osterman
getting vaporised (i.e. becoming Doctor Manhattan
- Accurate Alpha
) which is cool to see, but the suggests he is the star of the story. Later on they show him disintegrating one of the other prominent characters, a scene that is just about the last things to happen in the story. They also show a couple fight scenes that give away a lot of information that is meant to be a mystery. Of course if you are unfamiliar with the comic, most of this will look like a blur of imagery. Then, when the scene occurs, you'll have that epiphany moment as if to say, "Oh that's what was going on." I still can't wait though.
