Great Comic Quotes

Want to share some amazing quotes from some of my favorite comics. Quotes that have stayed with me over the years or just have hit me as damn good characterization. Quotes that to this day I use even in every day conversation or if anything anywhere near reminds of them.

"Mercy is not dispensed here fools... only death!" (Straxus, Transformers #17) For a Deception Governor that only appear in two issues he was badass, but with sayings and actions like this made him greatly remembered 27 years later, and totally worthy of he's finally made action figure.

"Coming to see you I am. Now." (Yoda, Star Wars Infinities #4) This story came out months before Yoda's Lightsaber duel with Count Dooku in Episode II, so before that this was Yoda's most badass moment.

Time travel. Tricky business. (Robocop Vs. Terminator #4) I love Robocop, I love Terminator, so I fricking bow at the alter of Frank Miller's Robocop Vs. Terminator. The quote is said multiple times through the series be that the last time is the one that is best defined by it. A quote you can hear me say very often and anytime I watch anything with Time Travel in it.

 Guess that's thirty-one pieces of silver you've got now, huh? (Daredevil to Iron Man, Civil War #5) A powerful, and perfect way to convey exactly how those against the Superhero Registration Act think of Tony Stark. Epic, is what it was when I first read it.

I never called anyone a friend except Abin Sur, ... and then you. (Sinestro, Green Lantern #26) I don't know about other Green Lantern fans, but that hit me with all the emotional impact as if he was saying it directly to me. You actually start to almost understand Sinestro, and he's views and the way that he currently is.

You took the oath to seriously! You abandoned it!(Sinestro and Hal Jordan, Green Lantern: Rebirth #5) Yes, another quote from Green Lantern. In that one exchange it totally sums up everything you need to know of why they guys are fighting each other, and what they think of each other.


  1. I like what Straxus said, i think I'm gonna post that as my status. Super like. Transformers rock. buy aion accounts

  2. It'd be cool if they had a t-shirt with a picture of Straxus with that saying on it.
