Description: Hooded Justice was the first costumed hero to appear in the Watchmen universe. He debuted October 14, 1938, assaulting three members of a street gang and hospitalizing all of them. He then waged a rather destructive war on the New York underworld, proving so successful that the police tended to overlook the fact that he frequently maimed or crippled his targets.

The true identity of the Hooded Justice was never discovered, although he tended to use the alias of "Rolf Mueller." Nite Owl describes him as "one of the biggest man I'd ever seen," and Watchmen module Taking Out the Trash describes him as "inhuman" in size and strength. In any event, his massive strength was a considerable asset to him in crimefighting.

Hooded Justice, like most of the Watchmen "superheroes" is a psychological disaster area. He is motivated by a deep disgust and hatred at the shortcomings of his parents, a hatred that led him adopting his costumed identity. He is a rabid anti-Communist, and openly supported Hitler in statements made in an interview in 1940. Finally, on top of all that, Hooded Justice was a homosexual and had a long-running affair with Captain Metropolis.

Hooded Justice finally met his end at the hands of the Comedian, who murdered him in 1955 as revenge for Justice's beating the Comedian following the Comedian's attempted rape of Silk Spectre I.
