The Crime genre deals with all aspects of crime, from their detection, the motives of those committing the crime, and the punishment involved. Sometimes a crime narrative is based on a real life situation, or is entirely fictitious. A common structure of a crime narrative begins with the crime itself, the investigation, and then the outcome or judgement. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle is an example of an early crime novel. Sherlock Holmes, a famous London detective, solved crimes using his extraordinary deducting skills.

Ozymandias
Scaled height comparison illustration of Ozymandias in relation to other DC Comics characters

Ozymandias, also known as Adrian Alexander Veidt, is a fictional vigilante in Watchmen and the extended DC Comics universe. A superfan of Ramesses II, the Egyptian pharaoh, Adrian aspired to save the world, through his vigilante antics and humanitarian efforts, as well as in fabricating a tragedy to unite the world against a common enemy and deescalate the cold war.

Lacking any technical superpowers, he stays ahead of his enemies with his quick wit and gymnastic abilities. In sharp contrast to Rorschach, he works hard to incapacitate his opponents with as little violence as possible.

Ozymandias, portrayed by Matthew Goode in Watchmen (2009), has a height of 6’2” (1.88 m).
