Quotes by Richard Jones (Phantom Reporter) (Earth-616)

Quote1.png I needed an edge, and maybe the mask those party girls gave me was the answer. Those costumed heroes cover their faces to keep their names a secret, but I thought maybe it was for other reasons too. Maybe fighting a man in a mask is distracting...frightening even. Maybe the mask was the only chance I had to get out of there alive. And maybe it was my chance to change things -- really change them. Quote2.png
--Richard Jones (Phantom Reporter) (Earth-616)
Quote1.png ... there was no way even the world's most determined virgin could keep up a pair of thigh-high stockings without garters. Unless stockings had changed suddenly and dramatically. Quote2.png
--Richard Jones (Phantom Reporter) (Earth-616)
Quote1.png A hero isn't the loudest guy, or the bravest guy, or the guy who kills the most enemy soldiers. It's the guy who lays down his life, who gives everything he has, everything he is, and everything he will ever be...for us. For his children. Quote2.png
--Richard Jones (Phantom Reporter) (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I can't write. I can't fly. I'm not super-strong. I can't do what they do. But I know that there has to be a place for me. Everybody's got a place in this world. So why not me? But I know now that I'm going to have to fight for it. No matter what people think. No matter the odds. So I'll do it my own way. On my own terms. I'll show-- --them-- --all-- --that the Phantom Reporter is back. Quote2.png

Quote1.png But the Captain was wrong. I'm not a soldier. None of us so-called super-heroes are. Soldiers are ordinary guys, made of flesh and blood. They aren't indestructible... They can't fly... Or bend steel with their bare hands. But they are prepared to fight anyway... To sweat... To bleed... To persevere... To give their life for the good cause... This is their war... and their moment... We just make it look good. Quote2.png

Quote1.png This has to end the way it began. All of us -- together. Quote2.png
--Richard Jones (Phantom Reporter) (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Take care of yourself, Jack. I'll try to live up to the power that you've given me. Sleep easy, old friend. There's no need to be afraid of the dark. I've left a light on for you. Quote2.png
--Richard Jones (Phantom Reporter) (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I cannot tell you where I'm going, who I'm working with, or what I'm doing. The records are burned, my past with it. It's my future that needs to be written now. Because that's what humans do. We keep going. We don't think about climbing the mountain, we just keep putting one foot in front of the other until we run out of mountain. No matter what we've lost, no matter what we've done, or seen...we go on. Even when we are lost in the dark, we hold on to what matters, to what we love -- because it's only what we love that will one day bring us home. And every day, we try...we try very, very hard...not to weaken. Quote2.png
--Richard Jones (Phantom Reporter) (Earth-616)
