Gee, I don't know about Batman. After giving it more consideration, I think he would've reacted like how Rorschach had. He has always been more about justice than the greater good. 
 
EDIT: Grammar error in the thread title, but never mind.

Madrox would probably just get depressed and start drinking heavily. He doesn't handle immense ethical decisions well.

Spider-man would probably cave into pressure of being the guy who ruined everything, and would remain quite like Nite Owl II....

Some of my favourites Heroes, no, they would probably want to kick Ozy's ass
Some of my favourite antiheroes, no, they would try to kill Ozy after that.
But some of my favourite villains, would be agree with that, people like Lex Luthor, Mandarin, Norman Osborn, Dr Doom, Albert Wesker, etc.
Some of them have already done something like that, and it's true that was the easier way to finish with the war, but that wasn't the only way.

 The Mandarin would be agree with that.

Nope, he didn't, all he did, is throw at Ozy a little "marble", and then Ozy blocked that and throw at him a  dish, and that was all, then he listened what Ozy did, and he said that was senseless, but that is all, he did nothing.

Damn you know i don't really have a favourite hero but batman is pretty up there. What would he have done , figured out his plan before hand,he already doesn't trust people,and would have figured out what ozy was doing before hand.So he would of probably stopped it,not the answer op was going for i know,but that's what i believe would happen.

The Séance has never really been much into the political/ethical side of things. He'd probably be fine with Ozymandias.

Elijah Snow would be very, very angry with Ozymandias. That being said, he'd probably appreciate the effort while deploring its uselessness. He'll have recorded down the man's scheme in the next year's Planetary Guide.
 
Spider Jerusalem would shoot Ozy with his disruptor and break the story in return for a huge bonus.
 
And Aaron Stack would leap with joy at the deaths of the inferior fleshy ones.

If Rorschach  was properly trained -- by let's say Batman, Deathstorke, or Captain America  & carried some type of weapon -- he would've wiped the floor on Ozymandias with or without NiteOwl. No, my characters won't stand for what Ozy has done, despite the fact that it was for the benefit of mankind. Ozy should've teleported that "Alien" to a remoted area where people wouldn't get killed and still ended the nuclear threat.

If Boston didn't stop it in time he would probably just leave and never return. But before he did he would inhabit Ozymandias body and make himself kick his butt.

Yup, T'Challa would probably understand it and all. BUT he definitely wouldn't see any honor in it. So, Ozzy loses his head over it.

EDIT: I actually agree with Ozzy though.

my favorite characters the sentry! could go so many ways!

1.  i think he would be manipulated into Ozzy's scheme someone with him being crazy and all. 
2. undecided, doesn't know what's right or wrong in it
3. the void be used instead of the bombs/squid

Batman is a toss up, He is all about eliminating evil. But at the same time he doesn't want to do evil to achieve this goal. I think Batman would argue with the method, but approve of the result.

I for one think Ozymandius was right.

@Caligula:
Batman disapproved when Zatanna messed with the mind of one supervillain. Batman had beaten Vigilante when he appeared in Gotham and started to kill criminals during the gang war. Do you honestly believe that Batman approves mass murder?

where did I say that? read it again.

I said Batman would disapprove of the methods (i.e. killing). But agree with the result (i.e. Peace). please read my posts before commenting.

I think this is a pretty apt description of Batman's reaction. He'd be rather unhappy with Adrian, but he wouldn't try to destroy the Utopia he created by exposing the truth either.

exactly he'd be in middle ground. Morally he'd see it as wrong, but he'd also not be the one to return the world to chaos.

I dont think most people are considering what their superheroes will THINK. my favourite superheroes (superman, batman, thor, cap, john constantine etc etc)- will all disagree with ozy and even beat him up, BUT they will NEVER reveal the truth to the world, they would consider the effect it would have on the world (global riots, hates, disaster), and would realise that its in the best interest to keep shut and not reveal anything.
