Quotes by James Howlett (Earth-21923)

Quote1.png Damn... that really hurts. I should never have left the territory. I should never have left. Quote2.png
--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
Quote1.png I'm just one man, Scotty... what can I do? I can't change the world. Quote2.png
--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
Quote1.png The Black Butcher was the first name on my hit list. A D-List super creep who didn't know what hit him when I came calling. But he was just a warm-up. If I was really gonna change the future, I knew I'd have to aim a lot higher. I thought I'd have to bide my time. I set up in Butcher's workshop, trying to get my bearings. So imagine my surprise when a news alert came over the radio telling me the big green bastard was in Manhattan helping out with a traffic pileup. And there he is, gift-wrapped and ready. So now I'm going to kill him before he can ever go bad in the first place. Quote2.png
--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
Quote1.png Seeing Storm and Iceman should have been like seeing ghosts. But it wasn't seeing them that made me realize everything I still had. Spend long enough trying to outrun the past and change the future, you start to forget you're still alive right now. The past is gone. And tomorrow may very well bring all the Hell I fear the most... but today... today it feels damned good to be alive. Quote2.png
--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
Quote1.png I need to take a little leave of absence from the X-Men, Ororo. Got a few things I need to see to. Quote2.png
--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
Quote1.png I was selfish. I came here to see Maureen. To look after her. I as so stupid. All I did was bring Hell down upon her and all these poor folks. And now I have more deaths on my head. Quote2.png
--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
Quote1.png Before I came here, Maureen was safe. Just a little kid. Now she knows death. She knows chaos. I brought it to her. I brought it to her just like I did in the Wastelands. Just like I did to Mariko. To Jadie. To Scotty. To so many others. Deathstrike was right. I've lived too long. I have too many enemies. I wanted to protect Maureen. I wanted to save her from the pain I caused her in another life. But there's only one way to keep her and everyone else I got left safe and that's to stay as far away from them as I can. Deathstrike is still out there. Her and dozens more like her. But I'm done waiting for them to bring their chaos to me. From now on, I am chaos... and I'm coming for them all. Quote2.png
--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
Quote1.png I screwed so much up. I hurt almost everyone. But you... there wasn't one damn thing I regretted about you, kid. You were one of the only things I got right. Seeing you again. Here? Hell. It feels like destiny's giving me another chance to **** it up. Quote2.png
--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
Quote1.png My "plan"... isn't appropriate for kids. Quote2.png
--James Howlett (Earth-21923)

--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
Quote1.png I didn't want you to ever see that part of me. That's why I never wanted to tell you who I was. What I was. It's over now, you'll never have to see that again. I swear it, Maureen. Quote2.png
--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
Quote1.png I did lie about one thing. The future, my past, it may never come to pass. That much is true. But it's not gone. Quote2.png

--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
Quote1.png Look, if we don't destroy that cloud, we all die. If we do, what's the worst that happens? A bunch of people stay the way they are and don't get super-powers? This ain't up for debate anymore. Let's get rid of the damn thing. Quote2.png
--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
Quote1.png Someway, somehow, I have to save him. I have to go back. Quote2.png
--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
Quote1.png They say you only live once. But that is a lie. I've had more lives than I can even remember most days. I've lost more too. So if I can't change the past, if I'm stuck reliving these lives... I may as well take advantage of it. Quote2.png
--James Howlett (Earth-21923)
