If they are informal authority, people should look up to them during the crisis and the leader should know what to do in the situation. The masked heroes in Watchmen, however, were not only condemned by people in society, but also did not work with others to solve societal problems. The society that lacks the rule of law caused the masked vigilantes to impose their authority to “protect” the society where there are full of violence and crimes. Although they have police force and the government structure, the law enforcement does not work well.

“The first telling fact is that in this dystopian world he (Moore) trades Reagan for the American president who, par excellence, has fallen from grace: Richard Nixon. In Moore’s fiction, Nixon has never been removed from office. The choice of a corrupt president to govern over the events in Watchmen reflects a deep moral criticism. — Therefore, the Reagan administration is directly criticised by Moore, who states about Watchmen: “This is not anti-Americanism. This is anti-Reaganism” (Moore, Alan, in Groth, Gary, and Fiore, Robert, 1988.
In the first issue of The Watchmen, Gibbons and Moore use their talents to sets the opening scene as a mystery of one of the characters death. This set the tone for one of the other characters, Rorschach to enter in as the narrator to discover the truth of the crime and a walkthrough of his life as a crimebuster. After warning other of a possible assassin that is out with intentions of hurting another, those that were warned ignored the heads-up. Later in the second issue, those same characters that were warned seem to feel the pressure of another force closing in on them, which is the reason for calling all the others for a meeting. The author uses the death of the comedian as an example of the potential for harm to be caused to the others if precautions aren’t taken.

When reading Mary Shellys Frankenstein we are told about a scientist that makes a monster out of body parts that he found in graves. Many people think that it's not worth reading but others see it as a true masterpiece. “The endurance of Frankenstein and its amplification to truly mythic status results from its articulating; "perhaps for the first time in Western literature, the most powerfully felt anxieties of pregnancy.”” (Lehman).
If a critique of the Byronic hero is made in Frankenstein, certain adjustments would need to be made to deviate from a standard Byronic hero such as Manfred. The changes made need to be key in the shifting the audience's perspective of the protagonist. Using Frankenstein as an example, it is much harder to hold the same admiration towards Victor as one may to Manfred.
