"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."

J'onn J'onzz

"Oliver Queen is dead. Eventually to be reborn as Ra's al Ghul. But for now, only the Arrow, Al Sah-him, shall remain."

Ra's al ghul

"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."

Barry Allen

"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."

Kate Kane

"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."

Lex Luthor

"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?"

Kelsey Grammar

"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."

Clifford DeVoe

"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."

Kate Kane

"They shouldn't fear us for what we can do. They should rely on us when they need us."

Kara Danvers

"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?"

Adrian Chase

"People don't become heroes because of circumstance. They become heroes in spite of circumstance."

Barry Allen

"Didn't know this was a costume party."

"Let me guess. Red, the color of our birthstone. To remind us where we came from."

Alice and Kate

"This time, you're the only Superman we need"

Lillian Luthor

"Look, you're one of a kind Barry. And i'm only human."

Tina McGee

"I'm going to tear everything he cares about away from him, destroy those who choose to follow him, corrupt those he loves. Once he has lost everyone and everything he values, I will drive an arrow through his eye."

Slade Wilson

"I could have all the speed in the world. I'm not complete without you."

Wally West

"She did more for this school than anyone who's ever gone here, so you can scrub her name from every plaque and banner and roster, but you will never erase her or the effect she's had on the people here."

Sophie Moore

"Kara Danvers is my favourite person. She saved me more times than Supergirl ever could. So, just think about that while you're trying to get rid of her."

Alex Danvers

"Tina, I watched myself die. It really brought home what you've always tried to make me understand. That I am only a man. And like all of us, I'm on a journey of a birth, a life, and a passing."

Barry Allen (Earth-90)

"My name is Oliver Queen. After five years on a hellish island, I have come home with only one goal. To save my city. But to do so, I can't be the killer I once was. To honor my friend's memory, I must be someone else. I must be something else."

Oliver Queen

"Forgive me, but to me, you've been dead for centuries."

Eobard Thawne

"You start with the code, you hang onto it with every self righteous breath, but then you take one life, then another, then another, then another. You'll see."

Bruce Wayne (Earth-99)

"What did it feel like? Living in that house, day in, day out, pretending to be her mother? Watching her sleep, so vulnerable. Knowing that any minute you could rip her apart with your bare hands. You're not a mother, you're a monster."

Lena Luthor

"I have taken measures to prepare for battle with the Flash should such a time come. Central City has become an abyss of darkness and fear under the heel of a criminal horde. The first Nightshade delivered justice to gangland. I will pay for my father's sins. I will hunt down the jackals hiding in the ivory towers of the constitution. The hucksters who let the guilty run free."

Curtis Bohannan

"The city still needs saving. But not by the Hood. And not by some vigilante who's crossing names off a list. It needs something more..."

"It needs a hero Oliver."

Oliver Queen and John Diggle

"Do you ever wonder why you became Black Lightning? You wanted to give the people hope. You wanted the evil that's out there to have something to fear. Right now there's nothing to fear and evil's running like a plague through this city, hell, through this world."

Peter Gambi

"Like you helped your mother? Or Wally? Or me? You keep messing with everyone's lives, wrecking everything, and we're left behind to pick up the pieces from your mistakes. Some things you break can't be put back together."

Killer Frost

"Congratulations daddy. Now both of your daughters are killers."


"This isn't my family. I remember my parents. I remember Krypton. I remember being alone in that pod and not knowing if I was going to see anyone ever again. And then I landed here. And no one asked me if I wanted these powers, but I have them. And all I want to do is help people with what I've been given, and no one will let me."

Kara Danvers

"I was married once, too. Tina always said that keeping me running was her purpose in life, so as someone who's been running for 30 years, let me tell you. Sometimes, in order to find your purpose as a hero, you gotta take a couple steps back. Reverse the way you see the situation and see a bigger picture."

Barry Allen (Earth-90)

"There's Flash and--and Supergirl and--and people with actual powers now. Whatever needs to be done, they can handle it. We--we finally have a chance to be happy. I mean, why--why can't you just for a second accept that maybe this is your reward for all of the sacrifices you have made?"

"I didn't make those sacrifices for a reward, Thea. I did what I did because I thought it was right."

Oliver and Thea Queen

"Do you remember what you said when we discovered my powers? You said it was a gift. A blessing from God. It's still a gift. It's still a blessing from god. And I intend to use it. Not just for the girls, but for all the other people out there who need me."

Jefferson Pierce

"Everyone dies, Ramsey. Maybe the only thing that makes it bearable is to find some meaning in it."

"Well, that means I'm making the greatest sacrifice of all. Don't you see? What I'm becoming, this is the cure. I am the answer, Flash, to the greatest mystery of all. Life eternal."

Barry Allen and Ramsey Rosso

"Strange visitor from another planet comes to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men? Clark. Clark always said yes to anyone with a badge or a flag. He gave them too much power. My parents taught me a very different lesson... Life only makes sense if you force it to."

Bruce Wayne (Earth-99)

"What I'm trying to tell you is my species has ancestral memory. And my ancestors, very bad people. They were collectors, conquerors! I remember everything!"

"In short you rebooted me. Aligned me with my more... emotionless ancestors. And that was a calamitous mistake."

Brainiac 5 and Brainiac

"Pretty frightening, how you and your friends were caught last night. What was it again, a demon? The guys at the station think you're all on drugs, you know, or crazy. But I know better. I know you really did see a demon. He was red as blood, wasn't he? And fast, like a flash. So if you care about Pike, you'll tell us where he is, because Lila, if we don't find him, the Flash will."

Barry Allen (Earth-90)

"Earlier today, I was looking at Sara, I realized something. One of these days it's going to be me. And this... This life that i've chosen. It only ends one way."

Oliver Queen

"Believe me, you don't want to see me when I lose my patience."

"I'd like to see it. Just not now."

Jefferson Pierce and Odell

"You look so young. And I could kill you right now so easy. What I wouldn't have given... All those times to have you like this. So... helpless. But fate, it's tricky, isn't it? I come here to destroy you... And then to get home, I have to be the one who creates you. But I will say, it's been an education... Watching you grow up all these years. Science fairs and soccer games. No hint, no sign, no trace of the man you will be one day for whom I have nothing but hate. And to be clear, nothing is forgiven. You will be eradicated. I promise you, Barry Allen, that you will die."

Eobard Thawne

"We buried a body this morning. When did you have time to eat?"


"When I was a child, my world ended. But I was saved. Sent to Earth to protect my baby cousin, Kal-El. But Krypton's destruction sent a shockwave that knocked my ship off-course, into the Phantom Zone. Somehow, my pod got loose, and I made the long journey to Earth. Though I was still a child when I arrived, my cousin had already grown up to become Superman. I hid who I really was until one day, my adoptive sister Alex was in danger, and I was forced to reveal myself to the world. From that day on, I became Supergirl. Now, I work in secret with my sister and the DEO to fight alien menaces that threaten the Earth and others that would cause my city harm. I have friends, and allies. I have a family. After so many years of being lost, I am finally home."

Kara Danvers

"Well, just goes to show you: never send a businessman to do a psychopath's job."

Harleen Quinzel

"The reason the original team worked so well was because of the trust and respect that everyone had for Oliver Queen, not the Green Arrow. Oliver is the one who makes a good leader. He's the one that runs a good team. He's the one that I chose to stand by and that I continue to choose to stand by."

Felicity Smoak

"I am unlike other men. The laws of convention and morality do not apply to me."

Tobias Whale

"Don't try to talk to me, all right? You may have been sent here to be some hero, but you sure as hell weren't sent here to be a father."

Jordan Kent

"What are you waiting for? What's the big deal? Come on. Live up to your name, Killer Frost. I want to see some killing. You want to be the villain? This is what they do. They kill their friends, cause nothing matters to them anymore, right? Right?

Come on. Kill me, Caitlin. You can't do it. Because underneath all that cold, you're still you."

Barry Allen

"Not going to sweat some freak who uses his skin as a knife sharpener.

Well, at least it's my skin because... and I'm only being honest... you don't seem very comfortable in yours. It's like... trying to pass for someone else."

Ryan Wilder and Victor Zsasz

"Show me your true self! I want to look my enemy in the eye as I avenge the deaths of my wife and daughters."

"Kill me, if that's what you want. But not like that. This is who I want to be."

J'onn J'onzz and Megan Morse

"Not being able to walk doesn't affect why I do what I do. It only affects how I do it."

Barbara Gordon

"It's not possible to be a hero when there's nobody worth saving."

Edward Fyers

"Son, from the moment we come out of the womb, the clock starts ticking. So it ain't about the dying, it's about the living. How... how are we going to live this life to make our dying something to celebrate, and not mourn?"

Alvin Pierce

"On Krypton, I had all the hopes and dreams one could ever have. And I lived them all. And then one day, those hopes and dreams were for the son I just had. Thank you, Lois, for making them come true."

Lara Lor-Van

"No person is immune to fear and doubt. No matter how brave. That's what makes you human, Barry. But the courage to move forward, even in the face of overwhelming odds, that's what makes you a hero. That's what makes you the Flash."

The Speed Force

"What you have to remember is that we all end up in the same place eventually, man, and you'll see your father soon enough. What changes with time is what you get to tell him you did while you were on the earth."

John Diggle

"You came here in a rocket. Child in a basket, you know? Real Moses stuff. Here's your chance to tell the bosses to 'let your people go.' Or us plagues'll do it for ya."

Manchester Black

"Batgirl was strong but impetuous. You've grown into a thoughtful, beautiful woman with the capacity to care more for others than you do for yourself. And if that's not a hero, I don't know what is."

Alfred Pennyworth

"Cause if I knew who he was, then he'd become a person, right? Maybe he's got a family. Friends. People that care about him. Someone with a life. That he couldn't be what I needed him to be. What this city needs him to be. It's the Arrow that matters. The man under the hood isn't important. Look at me. Can you imagine what it's like to be him? What he has to live with day in and day out, what that's gotta be like? Hey. The least I can do is sit here and do a little bit of time for him."

Quentin Lance

"Do you believe in the Resurrection, Latavious? I asked you a question. Do you believe in the Resurrection? The concept itself is beautiful, but it's a complete fantasy. I killed Black Lightning, but it seems you and whoever this is have developed an adversarial relationship that's bad for my business. My question is, can you take care of this problem, or should I just kill you now and solve it myself?"

Tobias Whale

"Aren't you curious how I know so much about you, Kal-El? Like me, your home was destroyed. You were sent here as an infant to a world where you'd spend your whole life trying to prove your worth, convince yourself you were one of them, but you're not! You're still that scared, lost child, desperate for the love of people who will never accept you! And the only remnants of your real home- Kryptonite- make you sick. Dust to dust, Superman."

Captain Luthor

"In another time, on another world, we could've fought side by side, you and I. There's great strength in you, Flash, but I've seen your future. The lives you take, the betrayals you revel in. You're the most dangerous kind of killer because you hide in the body of a hero."


"The buildings you see behind me are where all of the insanity in Gotham is supposed to be locked up safely and away from the public, but I'm here to tell you the real insanity is out there, and it's dressed up like a bat."
