    See, people love that cozy feeling Supes give them... but if you knew half the sh*t they get up to... F*ckin' diabolical. But then, that's where I come in. To spank the b*stards when they get out of line.

    Starlight (Annie January)

    Since when did "hopeful" and "naive" become the same thing? I mean, why would you get into this business if not to save the world? That's all I have ever wanted.
