    2. "If a man chooses to do becomes my sacred duty to bash him to a pulp!" -- Crime Crusher
    3. "With great power comes great responsibility!" -- The Narrator in The Amazing Spider-Man. (That's right folks it was the narrator who said it first, not Peter Parker or his Uncle Ben.)
    4. "Paradise unearned is but a land of shadows!" -- The Silver Surfer
    5. "It's clobberin' time!" -- The Thing of The Fantastic Four

    18. "I'd join you, but I think I'm close to locating a gluino, which would completely validate supersymmetrical theory if we could include it in the bestiary." -- Dr. Manhattan (Watchmen)
    19. "Grown-ups... are a strange breed! Their brains weigh close to three pounds, and that's not three pounds of cheery delight!" -- The Tick

    Meh, they are missing the best Cap A quote of all times.
    "You think this letter on my head stands for France!?" - Captain America
    “Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” ― Andy Warhol

      It seems like the guy just grabbed a few of the classic ones everybody knows...and then flipped through some other comics randomly picking out whatever word balloon struck his fancy.

      I dunno, it seems like more of them should be marking turning points in comic history...lines that really struck people. Not "hey! I found this generally amusing!"

          These are both better quotes than anything on that list. We should compile our own Top 20.

            How the hell did that list that random ass Dr. Manhattan quote and not any of the other badass quotes from Watchmen?

            For instance:

            "I've walked across the sun. I've seen events to tiny and so fast they hardly can be said to have occurred at all, but are a man. ...And this world's smartest man means no more to me than does its smartest termite."

              Hey, I have a copy of Skateman.
              Really bad comic.

                  "your funeral"

                  Absorbing man: "I was winning I was ahead!"
                  Hulk: "no you HAD a head" *smash*

                  Hulk: they're gonna wait till dawn when i turn back to banner THEN kill me!

                  Iceman: What makes you think they would do that?

                  Hulk: because I'm totally corrupt, and thats what I would do

                    "You realize you're talking to a man with a human head in his hands who has every intention of using it to beat these people to death?" - Hawksmoor

                        One of my favorites is from Golden Age Batman.

                        Panel: Batman grabbing a woman and wipes her makeup off rather rough.

                        Woman: Let go of me!

                        Batman: Quiet or Papa Spank!
                        "We're nothing like God. Not only do we have limited powers, we sometimes are driven to become the devil himself." - Nicholas D. Wolfwood
