In brightest day, in blackest night,No evil shall escape my sight.Let those who worship evil’s might,Beware my power, Green Lantern’s light!!!”
—Hal Jordan/Many Current Lanterns
…and I shall shed my light over dark evil.For the dark things cannot stand the light,The light of the Green Lantern!”
“They say that heroes are born, not made, babe! That’s bull! I’m livin’ proof! Bein’ a hero’s more than havin’ some sort o’ power! Look at Storm! Look at Captain America! They either never had powers or they lost ‘em! What keeps ‘em goin’ is guts! Without guts all the power an’ trainin’ in the world don’t mean spit!”
“If the prospect of living in a world where trying to respect the basic rights of those around you–and valuing each other simply because we exist–are such daunting, impossible tasks that only a super-hero born of royalty can address them…then what sort of world are we left with? And what sort of world do you want to live in?”
“When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world—“No. You move.””
“If anyone knows what it’s like to be on the outside, I do. Sometimes I feel like I’m out there fighting all alone. Sometimes I feel like giving up. But, then I remember that what I stand for is more important than anything else.”
“Not everyone is meant to make a difference. But for me, the choice to lead an ordinary life is no longer an option.”
X-men Classic I don’t remember which issue it was but this was the first comic book I had ever read and I was hooked. Everytime we went to the grocery store (when comics were still in them) I would grab this book. Thank you Chris Claremont!
