Spider-Man: Listen… You probably just saved me from having “killed by tentacles in a kiddie pool” carved onto my tombstone. Let me give you some advice.  There is an astonishing amount of powerful people in this world, and a lot of them are flat-out crazy.  So… Trust me… You will always be in over your head.  Always.

- From Amazing Spider-Man #648 by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos.  November 2010. 


Julie Power: I know who I am.  I’m Julie Power. I like reading and acting. I was born in Richmond, Virginia, and I have two brothers and a sister. I’m not some.. some symbol or label.

Striker: So you’re not gay?

Julie Power: I – God, I don’t know.  Everyone’s all “pick a side.”  Like it’s Yankees/Red Sox.  When I… have feelings for a person, it’s for that person. Not their gender. Can’t you just like someone without it being a political statement?

- From Avengers Academy #23, by Christos Gage and Sean Chen. February 2012.

Girl rescued by Iron Fist:  Wait! No! I - I twisted my ankle when I jumped!  Don’t put me down just yet… Just carry me for a bit.. against your rock-hard abs…

Iron Fist: Um. Okay.

Thor: Move against Asgard and you move against me -

Thor: Which is profoundly unwise.

Iron Man: But they’re not. Everyone feels inadequate next to you.  God knows I always have.

Captain America: You - ?  Tony, you’re brilliant.  Successful. One of the richest men in the world.

- From Iron Man/Captain America #1, by Christos Gage and Jeremy Haun.  December 2006.
