"Your sister looks like a pretty blonde cheerleader. J'onn J'onzz looks like a monster. I will never be tolerated here on Earth. The more time I spend as Hank Henshaw, the less I have to face what I've lost. But when I change my state, shapeshift into someone new, call upon new powers, I get one step closer to becoming the Martian Manhunter forever. And he creates panic and hysteria. I know, I have seen it. It's not only that I'm better off as human. Everyone is."
"Oliver Queen is dead. Eventually to be reborn as Ra's al Ghul. But for now, only the Arrow, Al Sah-him, shall remain

"My name is Barry Allen, and I am the fastest man alive. When I was a child, I saw my mother killed by something impossible. My father went to prison for her murder. Then an accident made me the impossible. To the outside world, I am an ordinary forensic scientist, but secretly, I use my speed to fight crime and find others like me. And one day, I'll find who killed my mother and get justice for my father. That day is today."
"Sitting at that desk, staring out that window, watching this city that we grew up in rot at its core, you find a way not to break. Bruce didn't leave Gotham without a fight."
"We must put faith in ourselves, but instead, we look up to him, with big glassy eyes because we think he's invincible. It's my duty to dispel the world of that notion. And when he dies, they will finally wake up and see him for what he really was. A false god."
"Villains or vigilantes? Criminals or heroes? From Star City to Central City to Gotham City, Americans have debated this question. Do the ends justify the means? Does the law have to be broken to uphold it?"
"Oh please. Your little secret is one of the more underwhelming revelations i have uncovered. I was born on the same evening as you were. January 7th, the night S.T.A.R labs' particle accelerator bathed Central City in gene altering dark matter. We were both struck by lightning."
"That's why Bruce became Batman. To play by his own rules. It made him terrifying to his enemies.
People aren't afraid anymore. An army may not scare them, but that will."
"They shouldn't fear us for what we can do. They should rely on us when they need us."
"Shawn i want you to know something. Anytime you need me, I'll be there for you. I couldn't run like your dad, but I'll be there in a flash."
Barry Allen (Earth-90)
"I told you Oliver. You infect every life you touch. And now do you realize why? It's because your crusade was based on a lie. You used your father's memory to justify a killing spree. There's a price to be paid for that Oliver. Your mother paid it. Your friend Tommy paid it, Laurel. Do you really want to tell me that John Diggle and Felicity Smoak's lives are better having known you?"
"People don't become heroes because of circumstance. They become heroes in spite of circumstance."
