** In regards to when Truman dropped the bomb, he had diplomatic credentials to do so as well as genuine authority, even granting the Japanese warnings. On the other hand, [[spoiler: Veidt]] had no credentials, no place in the government, and gave no warning. [[FridgeBrilliance For him, the rules mean everything so while Truman did follow the protocol that was needed and was in legal standing to do so, [[spoiler: Veidt]] didn't and wasn't able to.]]

* {{Hypocrite}}: Hypocrisy characterized. He looks up to Harry Truman as a "good man" for dropping the atomic bombs on Japan to prevent even more death, but is horrified when [[spoiler: Veidt does the same thing on a larger scale]]. He hates and kills rapists, but dismisses Edward Blake's AttemptedRape of Sally Jupiter because he is a war hero. He hates lawbreakers and murderers, but is both of those things because he's a vigilante. The list goes on.
** Bear in mind, there has been speculation that he believes that the Comedian's rape on Silk Spectre was exaggerated or false. And given his experience with women, he most likely thought that she may have lied about it. And also, when Truman dropped the bomb, he had diplomatic credentials to do so, and even gave the Japanese warning, whereas [[spoiler: Veidt]] had no credentials, no place in the government, and gave no warning.

* PrescienceByAnalysis: As the world's smartest man, he's able to use his vast intellect to predict and anticipate changes in politics, society, culture, human psychology and by smart timing, such as publicly revealing his secret identity at a time of widespread distrust in superheroism, he is able to cultivate an image of respectability and goodwill that he uses to build an immensely successful corporation, whose resources he then taps into [[spoiler:to unleash his devastating master-plan to save the world. He also anticipates that in a world without the cold war nuclear tensions, there would be an incipient baby boom, and he advices his company to invest in baby-care products to maximize profits]].
