Quote1.png I've been a sidekick for years now. I've seen a lot. I've seen the bad guys win. I've watched the good guys die. And if there's one thing I learned, it's this: The real monster in your life doesn't do loud rants in loud costumes. He doesn't gloat or give speeches. The real monster stays quiet. Keeps his head down. He's got a reputation to think about. He's got a name. Maybe you know it. Quote2.png

Quote1.png Uh...Death? I...think I'm stuck old and with one arm. Can I be wrong about that, too? Death? Yo...Death? Ohhhh crap. Quote2.png

--Richard Jones (Earth-616)
Quote1.png See, that's what heroes do, Steck. They save people. Triumph over obstacles. Beat the bad guys. As for our family, friends, well...they're always casualties, y'see? Relationships fall apart. Loved ones become targets for bad guys. They should really form a support group for families of superdoers. Kind of like they have for families of alcoholics, y'know? It's not all that different, y'know. Alcoholism and super heroing. You become hooked on something that feels so good when you're doing it. You get this...this buzz. This high. And you want more of it, and more. Pretty soon, it takes over your life, and it defines who you are. And sooner or later, it kills you. There's two kinds of super heroes, Steck. Those who die horribly...and those who haven't died yet. Quote2.png
--Richard Jones (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Shinga Doon seemed quite rational in life...so, in death, seems fitting I've rationed him. Quote2.png
--Richard Jones (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I thought I knew rage. I mean, I hung out with the Hulk, for God's sake. I thought I knew what pure, undiluted fury was like. But I've never seen anything like what Marv does to his father. Never. Ever. It makes the 'Singing in the Rain' sequence from 'Clockwork Orange' look like a third grade ballet recital. Quote2.png
--Richard Jones (Earth-616)
Quote1.png No, hey! There's the bad monster -- I'm the nice monster! Quote2.png
--Richard Jones (Earth-616)
