This is gross. It’s really bad.  I googled the rape scene to see why it was even put into the book and stumbled upon this:

The Top 5 Rape Scenes by Alan Moore

When the Watchmen movie came out there was a lot of controversy surrounding the rape scene (among other things). The complaints ranged from its simple explicitness to how the rape was trivialized and justified to how it was part of a wider trend in the movie of disempowering women.
It all led to my thinking about just how many of the comics by Alan Moore which I’ve read featured some kind of rape (all of them). And so I present to you:

The Top 5 Rape Scenes by Alan Moore
5. V for Vendetta
Two fingermen plan to rape Evey after arresting her for prostitution.
4. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol. 1
Griffin (the invisible man) serially rapes the pupils at a private girls school.
3. The Killing Joke
The Joker paralyzes and rapes Batgirl to psychologically torture her father, Commissioner Gordon.
2. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol. 2
Mr. Hyde violently sodomizes Griffin (the invisible man) to death.
1. Watchmen
The Comedian tries to rape the Silk Spectre

gross. I guess I can understand it being put in a book to show the most evil one person can show on another. It is more evil than killing a person, because they then have to live with what was done to them.
