  • "It is a remarkable dichotomy. In many ways, Clark is the most human of us all. Then... he shoots fire from the skies and it is difficult not to think of him as a god. And how fortunate we all are that it does not occur to him."

    ~ Batman

  • "Sometimes, I admit, I think of Bruce as a man in a costume. Then, with some gadget from his utility belt, he reminds me that he has an extraordinarily inventive mind. And how lucky I am to be able to call on him."

    ~ Superman

  • "And between my prayers I made a vow that I would always be aware of my strength. And that of my opponents, my friends, and my victims..."

    ~ Wonder Woman

  • "I've always done what I truly believed was right. At first, people called me a hero for it ... and then a villain. As the memory of what I've done — and been — fades, I hope I will be seen ... in a different light."

    ~ Hal Jordan

  • "Do what you have to... we must save the world. We must save the world..."

    ~ Barry Allen

  • "Who do I think I am? Good question, really, and I'll answer like this: I've seen too much to be Robin, but I'm still too optimistic to be Batman. I'm Nightwing. I'm Officer Dick Grayson. I'm Barbara's boyfriend, Bruce Wayne's adopted son, and the last living member of the Amazing Flying Graysons. I'm happy."

    ~ Dick Grayson

  • "My name is J'onn J'onzz. I am the sole survivor of a ravaged world. I will not see the same thing happen to Earth."

    ~ Martian Manhunter

  • "Haven't you learned anything yet? Think about your own life -- everything you've done to keep your secret safe. You don't just wear the mask for yourself. It's for your wife... your parents... even for -- one day -- your children. There are animals out there. And when it comes to family, we can't always be there to defend them. But the mask will."

    ~ Oliver Queen

  • "This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No."

    ~ Rorschach

  • "A King is a King in every corner of his kingdom... and when he's not in his kingdom? He's still a King."

    ~ Arthur Curry

  • "John Stewart. An architect from Detroit. Wanting not just to save lives...but make a difference in them."

    ~ Kyle Rayner

  • "My name is Wally West. I live in this cruddy little apartment with my mom. They call me Flash, 'cause I can run fast, really fast."

    ~ Wally West
